Kansas City Public Library receives huge grant to become a vaccination station
As trusted community partners, museums and libraries play a critical role in building vaccine confidence and fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. The $79,935 award will support increased communication to patrons living in neighborhoods with lower vaccination rates, as well as more information about the COVID-19 vaccine to those in the community for whom English is not their primary language.
This award comes as the number of COVID-19 vaccinations administered through KC CARE Health Center has surpassed 1,000 at three Library locations—going to those age 5 and older, plus boosters for those 18 and up.
KC CARE has agreed to extend its clinics through February 2022.
