The Southern University System has launched “Don’t Wait. Vaccinate!” a campaign that encourages Black and other racial minority groups to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The campaign responds to disappointing data that continues to reveal that ethnic minorities, who are disproportionately affected, are not getting vaccinated at a rate large enough to overcome this global pandemic.
Joining Southern is the Southern University Alumni Federation, more than 100 faith-based individuals and associations, civic, fraternal, and social organizations.
The grassroots, research-based campaign will engage Southern University alumni and other stakeholders across all 64 Louisiana parishes.
The System also aims to provide resources and content area experts from relevant programs across its five campuses to provide information about the vaccine and benefits of the vaccine and why it’s critically important that African Americans get vaccinated.
