Together We Protect - Vaccine Equity Interim Impact Report

Together We Protect – Colorado’s COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Fund – was a collaborative effort that provided support to organizations working in communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19. The goal of this effort was to ensure that people who face systemic barriers had culturally appropriate information about the COVID-19 vaccine and could easily access the vaccine. From April through November 2021, Together We Protect made 135 grant awards totaling $6.8 million to community-based organizations across Colorado. Initial estimates show that grantees’ outreach and education efforts on COVID-19 reached more than 2 million Coloradans, with an estimated 240,000 adults and 37,000 children and youth (5-17) receiving vaccines.
