Scheduling Assistance for Vaccine Equity (Project SAVE)
Project SAVE (Scheduling Assistance for Vaccine Equity) was organized to increase vaccine equity throughout San Diego County by assisting those who face technology, language or other health care barriers.
Working in partnership with local government entities and trusted partners, Project SAVE Community Health Workers (CHWs) and Promotores have the ability to provide access to dedicated vaccine appointments along with referrals to no-appointment events.
By bringing shared backgrounds, experiences, language and culture to the communities they serve, CHWs and Promotores serve as an integral component for reaching those outside traditional channels of communication. They are a trusted source for COVID-19 vaccine information and other resources.
