YWCA High Point VaxConnect Program – A Neighborhood Canvassing Project to Assist High Point Residents with Getting Covid-19 Vaccinations

The purpose of the YWCA High Point VaxConnect Pilot Program was to assist the Guilford County Health Department in increasing COVID-19 vaccination rates among: (a) individuals in underserved/marginalized communities; (b) individuals who are hesitant and lack access to transportation; and (c) specifically residents in the City of High Point living in the 27260 and 27262 zip codes. In partnership with the Guilford County Health Department and the City of High Point, the YWCA High Point launched a door-to-door outreach effort to provide: 1) education about the COVID-19 vaccine, 2) assistance with scheduling appointments, and 3) support for transportation to vaccine sites.

There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
