Project SAVE (Scheduling Assistance for Vaccine Equity) will also be present to assist those facing technology, language, or other healthcare barriers. Working in partnership with local government entities and trusted partners, Project SAVE Community Health Workers (CHWs) and Promotors facilitate access to vaccine appointments and provide referrals to no-appointment vaccination events. Project SAVE promotes vaccination events online and provides resources at in-person community events, such as swap meets, grocery stores, and schools. Project SAVE provides outreach and education to address vaccine hesitancy in a culturally and linguistically relevant manner.
By bringing shared backgrounds, experiences, language, and culture to the communities they serve, CHWs and Promoters are integral partners to reach those outside traditional channels of communication.
