Addressing Your Vaccine Concerns 

COVID-19 has hit Rush’s surrounding neighborhoods harder than most, and now help is on the way with the arrival of vaccines. However, we know that there may be fears and hesitancy about receiving the vaccine due to historical mistreatment of Black and Latinx people by the medical community. That’s why we’re reaching out to communities to make sure you get your concerns addressed; that you have facts, information and helpful resources about the COVID-19 vaccine; and to connect you to key resources you need to get vaccinated as you become eligible.

Although distributing the vaccine will take some time, we are committed to getting the vaccine to communities who need it most. Our dedication to improving your overall health through outstanding care, education, research and community partnerships is stronger than ever.

In the meantime, it’s important to still continue doing your part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect yourself, your loved ones and community by doing the following:

  • Wear a mask to protect yourself and others.
  • Practice social distancing.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Avoid indoor gatherings with those outside your immediate household.
