Gothamist: NYC Muslims Plans For COVID-19 Vaccinations During Ramadan Interrupted

April 20, 2021

AAFSC spoke with Gothamist about how community-based organizations are tackling vaccine misinformation and the importance of receiving adequate funding and resources to reach these communities.“Community-based organizations like the AAFSC are so critical as trusted resources to get this information out in a language that people understand.”

“Questions like “What is in the vaccine?” or “Why was it made so quickly?” also circulated within the Arab and Bangladeshi groups [AAFSC] works with, but they said after those hesitations were addressed, many community members wanted quick access to the vaccine.”
