Our effort to increase vaccinations in our community

The Community Vaccine Partners (CVP) program works to increase COVID-19 vaccination rates by making it easier for community members to sign up for an appointment through the community organizations they know and trust.

Community organizations that join the CVP program fill out simple sign-up sheets with the names of those individuals and families they serve. There’s no need to call the vaccine appointment hotline or register online. This simplified process increases accessibility for community organization members.

Where are vaccines administered?

COVID-19 vaccines are administered at multiple outpatient care locations throughout central Ohio.

Who’s eligible?

Community-based organizations, local businesses and agencies that serve populations made vulnerable in the Columbus area can sign up for the program.

What do we provide?

  • Educational materials about COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccines, in languages appropriate for your members

  • Interpreter services

  • Reminder phone calls to community members, if desired

  • Arrangements for transportation to the vaccine site
