Get Out The Vax

Regional businesses, community partners, and health leaders announced a regional movement to vaccinate 80% of those eligible (age 16+) in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky by the Fourth of July by removing barriers to getting a vaccine. Get Out the Vax weekends will take place during the second and fourth weekends in April and May.

“Reaching that 80% milestone will bring us a big step closer in defeating the virus in our region,” said Craig Brammer, President and CEO for The Health Collaborative. “We are beginning to see the benefits of getting vaccinated, but barriers need to be removed so every community has access.”

Free Metro and TANK rides will be available for the Get Out the Vax weekends, with support from Fidelity Investments, and free Lyft rides courtesy of United Way 211 of Greater Cincinnati and our regional hospitals led by TriHealth and UC Health.

To track progress, digital thermometers will be displayed on billboards in various locations throughout the region and promoted on local media. Progress to this goal, along with vaccine appointment information, can be found on the Test and Protect Cincy website.
