The website features federal resources organized by audience, such as health care professionals, partners, consumers, and is designed to increase access to vaccine information for minority and vulnerable populations.

CMS OMH states:

"The COVID-19 vaccine can reduce the spread of the virus and help end the public health emergency. Community partners working with racial and ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, people with limited English proficiency, sexual and gender minorities, and rural populations are critical in helping consumers understand how and when they can receive the vaccine, vaccine safety and confidence, and the important ongoing precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19."

Resources are available in various languages. To view the page, visit: go.cms.gov/omhcovid19vaccine.
