In alignment with PHI’s Together Toward Health initiative, WeVax+ funds vaccine-related services aimed at increasing vaccination rates among California communities that have been disproportionately burdened by the COVID-19 pandemic. Partners funded through the initiative include health care providers, mobile vaccination clinics, home health care providers, pharmacies, and community-based organizations providing outreach and vaccine registration supports.

The objectives of this program are to: Promote awareness about the state’s vaccine efforts; Publicize locations where the public may receive vaccines in their primary language; Increase access to vaccines in communities that have been disproportionately burdened by the COVID-19 pandemic; and Focus efforts in geographic areas and within demographic groups who are least likely to have access to vaccines services, health care, and/or have a high hesitancy towards getting a vaccine.
