Women are this country’s living infrastructure.
We must center women’s experiences in vaccine conversations and
address how we can ensure women and their families have equitable access to the vaccine.
A Candid Conversation About COVID-19 Vaccines
On Monday, May 24th, USOW and Made to Save partnered with Supermajority and HHS to host a candid conversation between President Obama, Eva Longoria, and special guests about the COVID-19 vaccines and the disproportionate health impact this pandemic has had on women, particularly women of color. Watch their responses to questions about the vaccines below!
Health Disparities in Communities of Color
Racial and ethnic communities are getting vaccinated at different rates in the United States, and people’s concerns about the vaccine may be informed by their cultural, racial, and ethnic background.
Vaccine Efficacy for Young People
Young people are not immune to the effects of COVID-19, which is why it’s important that they can safely get the vaccine.
Women physicians debunk COVID-19 vaccine myths about fertility, menstruation, and child safety.
Women’s Influence to Get Vaccinated
Throughout the pandemic women stepped up to take care of their families and now they are stepping up to ensure they get vaccinated.
