This ongoing project, we are working diligently along with the National Alliance for Hispanic Health to bring attainable resources and information to the Hispanic community regarding COVID, vaccines, and the pandemic
National Alliance for Hispanic Health is a science/community based non-profit and nonpartisan advocacy organization that are dedicated and passionate on improving the health and well being of Hispanics and their communities.
Through our similar views and goals, we plan to provide accessible information and resources that we believe are essential towards staying safe while combating COVID
In the state of Idaho, according to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, the Hispanic vaccination rate is at a low 37%. For both us and our partners, we believe that to be a concerning number. With our partnership we hope to bring the most up to date information regarding the ever changing landscape of the pandemic, offer attainable resources for those in need, and providing clarity and transparent updates on the ongoing pandemic. We believe that communities should be protecting themselves and their neighbors, we aim to bring the Hispanic vaccination rate in Idaho to a much comfortable and safer percentage.
