County Executive Curran announces vaccine equity video campaign

As part of the #WeCanDoItNassau public awareness campaign, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran announced a new video series encouraging communities of color to take the COVID-19 vaccine. The videos feature members of the Nassau County’s Healthcare Equity Group providing information about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine, and personal testimonials about why they would “rather have the vaccine than the virus.”

County Executive Curran formed the Nassau County Healthcare Equity Group to combat hesitancy of the COVID-19 vaccine and increase vaccine access for communities of color.  The Healthcare Equity Group will also address other health equity issues impacting communities of color.  The Team is led by Deputy County Executive for Health and Human Services Kyle Rose-Louder, and includes the following members from the Office of Minority Affairs, Office of Hispanic Affairs, Office of Asian American Affairs, Office of Health Equity, and the Office of Human Services: Dr. Carolyn McCummings – Commissioner Human Services and Dr. Andrea Ault-Brutus – Office Health Equity
