COVID-19 and Community Health Perspectives
Our project explored the uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine within the Hartford community and aimed to discover the main reasons for vaccine hesitancy in the community. Our project was a collaboration with Hispanic Health Council and the Liberal Arts Action Lab. To conduct our research, we worked with local community health workers to better understand the COVID-19 situation in Hartford and to determine common reasons as to why people have not received the COVID-19 vaccine. Our work specifically focused on why residents in Hartford and surrounding communities are hesitant to receive the vaccine.
