Making the most of audio and video PSAs


PSA 1: 
COVID-19 vaccines are FREE for everyone. But make sure and ask if there are any other costs with getting vaccinated. No one can be denied a free vaccine if they are unable to pay an administration fee. Once vaccines are widely available, anyone can get vaccinated regardless of immigration status. Protect yourself.  Protect your community.  Get vaccinated.
