The Multnomah County Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) program has developed educational and promotional materials to relay information about COVID-19 and promote vaccines. 

COVID-19: Throughout Life

REACH emphasizes how vaccines protect our loved ones and the most vulnerable in the community including the elderly and immunocompromised individuals.

What Science Wants

Highlighting current and past BIPOC researchers, medical professionals and their contributions to health care can boost vaccine confidence in the Black and African community.

Barbershop Conversations

As a cornerstone of Black community and culture, salons and barbershops are an integral part of outreach in public health initiatives.

COVID-19 Vaccination and Pregnancy

REACH aims to spread awareness of the importance of vaccinations during and after pregnancy.
