Far Rockaway and communities on the eastern end of the Rockaway Peninsula have one of the lowest rates of vaccinations, yet the highest rate of hospitalizations for COVID19 in NYC.

RISE has developed an outreach campaign led by local volunteers and  youth in our Shore Corps Internship Program, focused on Rockaway residents most at risk; those over the age of 65; chronic health issues; immigrants and those whose primary language is not English. 

Protect those U Love. GET VAXED and STAY MASKED, to keep our community safe, and help us all get back to more in person gatherings. 
Below are outreach materials on the COVID19 vaccine, that can be printed and shared with others.
