covid 19 Vaccine
Milwaukee County has developed resources to help educate the public on the COVID-19 vaccines.
These can be very helpful tools to provide to those who may have some hesitancy about receiving the COVID vaccine.
The Wisconsin COVID-19 vaccine provider map is designed to improve transparency in the vaccine distribution process, by identifying where vaccine is being sent across the state. It is also intended to help Wisconsinites more easily find and connect with vaccine providers in their area.
At Waukesha NAACP, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Fundraising Opportunities is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
