The Kansas City region hit a major milestone May 4th with 500,000 vaccinations completed, just four weeks after Comeback KC launched the metro-wide Two Million Arms KC campaign.
“We are in a race to get area adults vaccinated before another COVID-19 surge arrives, fueled by new virus variants and a loosening of public health restrictions,” according to Mark Logan, Communications Director for Comeback KC, which launched the regional education and communications campaign to help with that life-saving effort.
The Two Million Arms KC campaign is designed to help the Kansas City region recover from COVID-19 by providing vaccine information and encouragement to help residents protect themselves, their families, and their communities.
“If we’re going to beat COVID-19, it will take all of us. Getting the vaccine not only protects you, it protects your family, your neighbors, and your community,” Qiana Thomason, President/CEO, Health Forward Foundation said.
