Maine Community Action Partnership is Working for a Successful Vaccine Roll Out for All

Maine Community Action Partnership (MeCAP) is working for a successful vaccine roll out for all, including the state’s most underserved residents. Joining forces with Maine CDC, DHHS and a broad coalition of community based organizations, MeCAP is meeting people where they are to “get shots in arms” as quickly and safely as possible.

 


Maine’s COVID-19 vaccine education is in high gear. Maine Community Action Partnership (MeCAP) is working for a successful vaccine roll out for all, including the state’s most underserved residents.  At the heart of MeCAP is a statewide network of community action agencies advocating a wide range of social services to improve the quality of life for Mainers. Joining forces with Maine CDC, DHHS and a broad coalition of community based organizations, MeCAP is meeting people where they are to “get shots in arms” as quickly and safely as possible.
