COVID-19 Community Immunity for All Initiative at Atrium Health
February 10, 2021, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Scott Rissmiller, MD, EVP & Chief Physician Executive, and Kinneil Coltman, DHA, SVP, Chief Community & Social Impact Officer, Atrium Health. Atrium Health’s “Community Immunity For All” collaborative has a united goal to ensure equity in access to COVID-19 vaccines, acknowledge the history of health injustice in communities of color, listen to and collaborate with partner organizations, and support individuals in making informed decisions to best protect their health and well-being. With the support of faith and community leaders and the state governor’s office, “Community Immunity For All” is eliminating barriers to the COVID-19 vaccine by holding vaccination events at community partner host sites, providing appointment scheduling and transportation support, and providing culturally responsive vaccine education and resources for community members. Quoting Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen, North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services regarding this initiative, “’Community Immunity For All’ is the kind of collaboration that is needed to ensure equitable access to the vaccine and stop this pandemic. Everyone needs a spot to take their shot – a spot that is trusted and accessible.”
