The Center Helps Launch Campaign to Increase Vaccination Rates Among Minorities

This campaign, known as the Mohawk Valley COVID Community Navigator Program, intends to fix disparities in vaccination rates through education and expanding access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

The program, which is also being promoted by Mohawk Valley Frontiers, Mohawk Valley Latino Association, Hope Chapel AME Zion Church, the Rome NAACP and the Utica/Oneida County NAACP, is being funded by the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties through the Ron and Sheila Cuccarao Family Fund.

“Nationally and locally, people of color have suffered disproportionately from the pandemic, so this effort is critical to our community'', said Shelly Callahan, Executive Director, The Center.
