The content of the curriculum is based on evidence-based information from CDC, and WA DOH website. A booklet in Spanish and English was created for this purpose.

Our educative campaign also uses social media to disseminate the messages sent by WEAREDH and WA DOH, as well as a radio interview with our grantors to talk about the truth of the COVID-19 vaccine.
