About this event

Throughout the pandemic, the state of Washington has utilized effective public-private partnerships in an effort to vaccinate all Washingtonians. Join us for this special conversation with Dan Laster, director of the COVID-19 Vaccine Command and Coordination System (VACCS) Center in Washington, who is working to help the state distribute vaccines in a safe, fast and equitable way. During this call, Dan will give us an update on vaccination efforts and invite our network to help problem-solve around gaps they are seeing in rural communities of color, individuals with lower incomes and young adult populations. Although this conversation is state-specific, any funder throughout the region is welcome to participate.
