National Minority Health Month 2021

Thursday, April 1st from 12:00pm to Saturday, May 1st, 2021 1:00am (ET)


April is National Minority Health Month (NMHM) and this year’s theme is #VaccineReady. This year the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) is focusing on mitigating the disproportionate negative impacts COVID-19 is continuing to have on racial and ethnic minority and American Indian and Alaska Native communities and underscoring the need for these vulnerable communities to get vaccinated as more vaccines become available.

Throughout the month, OMH invites everyone to join the #VaccineReady campaign to empower vulnerable populations to get the facts about COVID-19 vaccines, share accurate vaccine information, participate in clinical trials, get vaccinated when the time comes and proactively practice COVID-19 safety measures as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Visit the bilingual NMHM website to find downloadable graphics, toolkit materials and more information. Sign up for the National Minority Health Month topic on our email list for updates.
