Title: Feast and Famine: COVID-19 Vaccine Local Efforts
While the pandemic continues, the promise of a vaccine has provided a ray of hope. The first front line health care workers in Rochester began receiving their vaccines in mid-December 2020. In this presentation, Dr. Nana Bennett, Director of the Center for Community Health & Prevention, Co-Director of the CTSI, and co-Chair of the Finger Lakes COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force will discuss our region’s approach to the deployment of vaccine to all populations. Dr. Bennett will address current barriers to vaccinating our community and how the hub and task force are working to ensure the vaccine rollout is equitable, transparent and efficient across all communities.
