Yesterday, New York State Governor Kathy Hochul announced the re-launch of the #VaxToSchool effort to combat COVID-19. The campaign is aimed to increase COVID-19 vaccination rates among school-aged children in the state.
“As we prepare for the beginning of the school year and the fall season, it is important that we do all we can to protect our youngest New Yorkers,” Governor Hochul said. “By breaking down barriers to vaccine access, these partnerships will allow New York State to continue to protect the health and safety of our most vulnerable community members and keep our schools open. The re-launching of our successful #VaxtoSchool campaign will support our Fall Action Plan, and ensure we are getting New Yorkers the resources they need to protect themselves from being seriously ill or hospitalized due to COVID-19.”
The state has launched the website which will provide critical resources and materials for parents or guardians including information and frequently asked questions.
