Vaccine Education Program

MHC is a health advocacy organization founded one hundred years ago in response to the deadly tuberculosis epidemic. Since 1920, MHC has advocated for and educated Massachusetts residents on all matters of prevention, including the critical role vaccinations play in ensuring public health. The COVID-19 global pandemic of 2020 has caused over a half million deaths and billions of dollars in lost economic activity. The disease impacts poor communities and communities of color disproportionately as this population is more likely to work in essential roles, and unable to stay safe at home. A COVID-19 vaccine is vital to saving lives, especially in communities of color.
