We are excited to launch a new phase of our Take YOUR Shot campaign to encourage community members to get their COVID-19 vaccine, boosters, and flu shot. This new iteration of the campaign is multifaceted and focuses on both community organizing and media, including print, TV, radio, and social media. In December, we sent canvassers to neighborhoods to speak directly with residents about why it’s important to get vaccinated and to help unvaccinated residents find vaccination sites near them. This community outreach is essential to increasing the access people have and the accurate information they receive about vaccines, and it cannot be accomplished without community members like you. We need YOUR help! We are currently seeking volunteers and will provide all the training and talking points required, so there is no experience needed. If you are interested in helping your community get vaccinated and providing Tucson residents with updated information about vaccines, please reach out to Leah Marty at lmarty@ pcoa.org and (520) 790-7573 ext. 1768.
The CDC is now recommending COVID-19 booster shots for people 16 years of age and older. If you received Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine, you should get your booster shot at least 2 months after. If you received Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine, you should get your booster shot at least 6 months after your second dose. COVID vaccines, booster shots, and flu shots are all available at multiple locations throughout Pima County. Please visit covid19.pcoa.org for the latest recommendations and current resources. Be sure to like and share our videos, and talk to your family and friends about getting their vaccines. To get your questions answered and to schedule a free at-home vaccine appointment for a COVID vaccine, booster shot, or flu shot, please call (520) 222-0119.
