La Colaborativa Directs Hundreds To Chelsea Vaccine Clinics

36% Latinx fully vaccinated; 49% get 1st dose

As of May 28, 36% of Chelsea Latinx are fully vaccinated and 49% have received the first dose of the vaccine. During this critical moment of the pandemic, La Colaborativa is focused on vaccinating as many residents as possible.

 

In May, La Colaborativa’s Health Promoters scheduled approximately 800 vaccination appointments, plus encouraged hundreds more by directing residents to walk-in clinics.

 

The Health promoters work to ensure all residents of Chelsea have access to equitable information and services that protect their health and wellbeing. They do this through direct community outreach around the city, including door knocking. Above, Executive Director Gladys Vega spent a Saturday knocking on doors to address concerns, fears and any questions about the vaccine.

 

Our Health Promoters are essential to the cause. They are trained on the COVID virus transmission, variants, and the epidemiology of the disease in Chelsea. They specifically go through weekly training on how to address hesitancy towards all of the vaccines.

 

Promoters are also trained in understanding the social determinants of health that impact Chelsea residents. Their outreach work link families to wrap-around services offered by La Colaborativa and the City. For example, this month’s “Chelsea Seguro” campaign seeks to improve access and registration to health insurance by linking residents with Health Insurance Navigators.

Your Donations Are Critical to Vaccinating Chelsea
La Colaborativa is working closely with various area organizations to vaccinate families. Our door knocking and vaccine events require donations to keep them going. Please consider donating to help us to this critical work.

La Colaborativa Vaccinates Chelsea’s Youth
Since only 31% of ages 12-15 have received the first dose, we are working to vaccinate as many youth as possible. Four hundred people attended our May Youth Vaccine Event (and 120 youth were vaccinated) so we’re hosting a June Vaccine Event on June 11 from 4-7PM at 25th Sixth Street in Chelsea. Games and activities organized by Youth Riot. Call 617-889-6080 with questions.

YOUTH RIOT EDUCATES & UPLIFTS THEIR PEERS

Why Your Donations Matter

La Colaborativa’s Youth Riot is a group of young people organizing across the state to enhance their community. Most recently, they facilitated the games and art activities at our Youth Vaccine Events and hosted a Youth Summit to discuss anti-black racism in Chelsea public schools and healthy relationships.

 

The passionate group organizes in two ways:

 

1) They organize and educate among their peers and other youth from Chelsea and beyond. In fact, they organized a rally in February that brought together youth from across the commonwealth.

 

b) They participate actively in decision-making and political spaces like city council meetings, meetings with elected officials to discuss their legislative demands, testifying at the Board of Education, press conferences and more.

 

At their most recent Youth Summit, they created a petition demanding that their schools incorporate the topics of consent and healthy relationships into their health class curriculum, and that their schools remove Student Resource Officers from the school buildings.

 

We’re so proud of Youth Riot. They’re currently working on a campaign around all-resident voting and they plan to take a film on the topic to a city council meeting later this month. Your support helps us support this talented group as they make change in the community.
