Vaccine Outreach Toolkit

Sangamon County COVID-19 Vaccine Partnership Information

The purpose of this Sangamon County Department of Public Health outreach toolkit is to offer facts and resources that specific communities of color can use to make informed choices about COVID-19 vaccinations. The goal is to encourage stakeholder engagement with communications content that raises awareness and increases confidence in vaccination programs to fight the devastating effects of COVID-19 in communities of color.

These materials are free for use by individuals and organizations with an interest in promoting the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccinations for marginalized communities in Sangamon County. This toolkit was developed by SIU School of Medicine, Sangamon County Department of Public Health and a number of community partners that participated in planning sessions for this purpose.

Refer anyone interested in getting a vaccine to SCDPH: Get vaccinated by making your appointment at www.scdph.org or by calling 217-321-2606.

Real Facts | The Vaccine Doesn't Change Your DNA

Sample social post text: Real talk: None of the COVID-19 vaccines change or interact with your DNA. Two of the vaccines, Pfizer’s and Moderna’s, use messenger RNA (mRNA), which teach our bodies how to trigger an immune response. Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine uses what’s known as a vector to tell our cells to start building protection. This material doesn't mix with your DNA.
