The Young Professionals Association of Louisville (YPAL) urges its members to take any of the vaccines available to prevent the infection and spread of COVID-19. These vaccines are safe and effective in protecting each other and our entire community.
According to public health experts, one of the largest groups yet to get vaccinated is young people. With the more contagious delta variant spreading rapidly in our community, it is important that young professionals in Louisville do their part to protect themselves, each other, and our economic recovery in the city of Louisville.
Do your part.
Our Time is Now.
Your Questions & Concerns:
We know many young professionals may be hesitant to take the COVID-19 vaccine or share your questions publicly and we want to help! Your concerns are valid and our goal is to get you all the information we can to help you make an informed decision!
We want to hear from you! As a membership organization, we strive to represent our community the best we can. In order to do that – we want to hear your questions and concerns regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. Throughout the coming weeks we will be working with young professional medical professionals, public health professionals and others to get your questions answered and your concerns addressed. So let’s hear ’em!
Pharmacies and health systems across the region have ample supply of vaccines and many do not require appointments. Check out the CDC’s new portal, which allows you to search by zip code for all locations offering vaccines in a 25-mile radius. You can even filter the results by each of the three vaccines available.
In addition, if you are interested in having the LouVax Mobile Clinic set up at your office, please email LouVaxMobile@louisvilleky.gov with how many people may be interested in getting a vaccine, and preferred times and dates.
