CUMAC is leading this initiative, in which up to 500 vulnerable Passaic County residents age 12 and older will take the COVID-19 vaccine at community-based vaccination events. With a particular focus on Paterson, Passaic City and the surrounding communities, CUMAC is partnering with the New Jersey Department of Health, the Passaic County Health Department and Atlantic Health System to share information about the vaccines with residents. In addition, CUMAC is leveraging the trust of the 1200 families it serves each month to coordinate pop-up vaccination events at its on-site marketplace. Through the CUMAC’s commitment to collaboration and partnership, this program could create a model for providing equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines.
CUMAC and its partners are among the nonprofits and service providers that have come together as the New Jersey Vaccination Learning Network to share accomplishments and lessons learned from this work with each other, with New Jersey Health Initiatives and the state, to benefit every eligible New Jerseyan who is interested in taking the COVID-19 vaccine.
