As COVID-19 vaccines become available, libraries can play an important role in helping community members understand this important transmission prevention tool. As trusted organizations, libraries can use the CDC’s new toolkit including posters, messaging, and social media resources to educate their communities about the vaccine and support community members with tech help necessary to schedule vaccinations.
