COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - The Vaccine Equity Outreach Team and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment are working to schedule more than 175 vaccine equity clinics across Colorado. They are partnering with community-based organizations, local public health agencies, and tribes for the clinics.

By Tuesday night, 66 vaccine clinics will allegedly be finished and around 20,890 doses of the vaccine will be given to disproportionately impacted communities.

The Vaccine Equity Outreach Team typically supplies the vaccine doses, staffing support, and technical assistance for the clinics and works with community organizations to execute outreach to their community.

Rick Palacio, the strategic consultant to the governor, knows these clinics are important to ensure fair allocation of COVID-19 vaccines across Colorado.

“Equity isn’t something we can leave to chance. We have to get out into communities, plan clinics, and answer questions about the vaccines. We know people are juggling more than ever, so we are going to meet them where they are. I’m grateful for community organizations that are partnering with us to provide relief to communities that have been disproportionately impacted,” said Palacio.
