One of the top issues we keep hearing about in terms of vaccine distribution is the reticence of people to take the vaccine. To help respond to the need, we have attached some posters and fact sheets produced by OMH and OASAS to help mollify concerns.
There also has to be a concerted effort to have peers, families and care managers play a prime role in educating the public about the importance of taking the vaccine. In addition, there have to be incentives in place to help ensure successful distribution.
