Equity for COVID-19 Vaccines and Care

At Johns Hopkins Medicine, inclusive and equitable access to medical care and health information is a core value of our institution. Our care teams are working with community partners to give vaccines to our most vulnerable eligible residents, to provide access to COVID-19 testing, and to educate and inform our communities hardest hit by this pandemic.
