WASHINGTON, D.C. – Hispanic Access Foundation is partnering with the Health Resources and Services Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to launch a Health program with the goal of establishing nine vaccination sites across the nation to encourage local Latino communities to either get vaccinated or get the right resources about getting vaccinated.

The program is a 12-month initiative with the goal of helping at least 40,000 people across the nation get vaccinated.

“The past couple of years have shown just how much the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted Latino communities,” said Maite Arce, president and CEO of Hispanic Access Foundation. “I’m excited to launch this program and help improve the livelihood of Latinos across the nation. At times, it’s not that Latinos don’t want to get vaccinated, but they often face many barriers – language, technology, transportation and mistrust of the vaccine.”

For the project, Hispanic Access is establishing nine vaccination sites by partnering with local church leaders to reach communities who need it the most. The vaccination clinics will be held at:

“It’s critical we expand vaccination coverages in communities that have been historically underrepresented,” said David Armijo, Chief of Programs at Hispanic Access Foundation. “Our goal with this project is to provide the resources and access to those who choose to get vaccinated.”
