An initiative encouraging and facilitating Covid-19 vaccination for anyone eligible across Westchester County and beyond.
Lieutenant Governor of NY Andrea Stewart-Cousins stopped by one of our recent info/vaccine events in her home district of Yonkers and encourages everyone to #VaxUpWestchester!
4:50 -- Hear from Sharon Walker, and her story on why she decided to get vaccinated through a VUW/Ossining EMS pop-up event. This is the kind of impact we can make. Let's #VaxUpWestchester!
Check out our "Vaccine Hesitancy Town hall" with Westchester Youth Congress. Our team of medical experts answered questions and discussed the importance of the vaccine.
Dose by Dose in Westchester
Morphing out of Town of Greenburgh, NY's pioneering Covid Angels volunteer initiative, which helped thousands of vulnerable seniors and other Westchester County residents from Mount Vernon to Peekskill secure vaccine appointments, we have now launched #VaxUpWestchester.
The second phase of this work aspires to compassionately and pointedly address vaccine hesitancy and facilitate accessible vaccination across the county and beyond. The ultimate goal? Making sure all of our friends, family, neighbors and other loved ones are healthy and safe and can resume the quality of life they were accustomed to.
We know you might have questions, and we have answers, and we can help direct you to the most trustworthy vaccination site near you, if not bring the vaccination directly to you. Visit our Resources page for an abundance of info in English and Spanish, as well as guidance on how to get your dose of choice; check out our Calendar for the latest info booths and vaccination events and recaps and images/video from past events; and contact us via VaxUpWestchester@gmail.com for more information, or if you want to help us with our efforts.
