Paul G. Allen Foundation Initiative Delivers Vaccines to Underserved
As Washington expands its COVID-19 vaccination rollout, many communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic are having difficulty accessing the vaccine. To address this disparity, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation is partnering with Harborview Medical Center/UW Medicine to deliver COVID-19 vaccines directly to underserved communities in King County.
The initiative is supported by the foundation and other partners in the region including the Seattle Mariners, Cambia Health Foundation, Starbucks and foundry10.
“As vaccination availability turns the tide in this pandemic, the foundation continues its commitment to improving and expanding equitable access to COVID-19 resources,” said Lara Littlefield, director of science and technology partnerships, on behalf of the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. “These targeted funds will support vaccine delivery to underserved communities across our region and help close the vaccine equity gap that leaves some of our communities more vulnerable.”
