Pulaski County Public Library Awarded Funding for Boosting Vaccine Confidence

The Pulaski County Public Library is proud to receive a Communities for Immunity Round 2 award in support of its work to promote vaccine confidence in Pulaski County. As trusted community partners, museums and libraries play a critical role in building vaccine confidence and fighting the pandemic. The $23,089 award will support efforts to increase local access to vaccines and to empower citizens to make informed choices.

Through this project, the Pulaski County Public Library will work with Pulaski Memorial Hospital to provide mobile vaccine clinics in every incorporated town in the county.  Clinic dates will be announced soon.  Through education and incentives such as passes to the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the library hopes to offer trusted information, reduce apprehension for young children, and build vaccine confidence.

Pulaski County Public Library is among 50 museums, libraries, and tribal organizations nationwide to be awarded funding as part of the Communities for Immunity initiative led by the Association of Science and Technology Centers and the American Alliance of Museums.  This initiative supports museums and libraries working to engage their communities to boost COVID-19 vaccine confidence.  Communities for Immunity is made possible with support from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).  Learn more at www.communitiesforimmunity.org.
