ALL FAITHS VACCINATION CAMPAIGN

#HopeandHealingPhilly

WHAT WE'RE DOING NOW

AFVC has launched a faith inspired companion vaccination motivation effort, Sincerely Affirm Vaccination Efficacy (SAVE) by leveraging the appeal and inspirational capacity of Philadelphia Faith leaders to prompt and guide Philadelphia unvaccinated residents from hesitance to motivation to help achieve vaccination equity in underserved neighborhoods situated in Philadelphia and its collar communities.

AFVC has launched a complementary Confluence of Influential Voices Initiative (CIVI) to further inspire, encourage and motivate Philadelphia Black and Brown Millennials and Gen Z persons through the voices of Influencers and Motivators with positive vaccination motivation messaging to help achieve vaccination equity in underserved neighborhoods situated in Philadelphia and its collar communities. See volunteer sign up below

WHO WE ARE

We are a partnership of over 60 entities and organizations from diverse faith traditions, health care institutions as well as government and civic leaders to get as many members of our respective communities vaccinated.

WHY WE'RE DOING IT

Vaccination rates in our Black and Brown neighborhoods continue to lag as a result of many factors. The Delta Variant is substantially increasing the risk of sickness and death to unvaccinated people. This campaign seeks to use the power of our faith traditions and medical science to strengthen and protect the health of the communities we serve.
