The All Faiths Vaccination Campaign (AFVC) seeks to achieve vaccination equity in underserved neighborhoods situated in Philadelphia and its collar communities.
We are a partnership of nearly 50 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 between the Memorial Day holiday (starting the week of May 24th) through the commemoration of Juneteenth (June 19th).
Vaccination rates in our Black and Brown neighborhoods continue to lag as a result of many factors. This campaign seeks to use the power of our faith traditions to strengthen the health of the communities we serve.
Forum Philly has organized a multisector partnership of nearly 50 partnered organizations and congregations from diverse faith traditions, health care institutions, retail pharmacies, government and the civic sector. All partners are working to plan, coordinate and stage the AFVC in Philadelphia and collar communities.
