April is National Minority Health Month (NMHM), a time to raise awareness about health disparities that continue to affect racial and ethnic minority populations and encourage action through health education, early detection, and control of disease complications. History of NMHM.

The 2021 NMHM theme is #VaccineReady. As recognized by the HHS Office of Minority Health, the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted racial and ethnic minority communities and underscores the need for these vulnerable communities to get vaccinated as more vaccines become available.

COVID-19 vaccination is an important tool to help us get back together with our families, communities, schools, and workplaces by preventing the spread of COVID-19 and bringing an end to the pandemic.

Everyone should have an opportunity to be as healthy as possible by having equal access to health resources regardless of race, gender, location or economic status.

When you get vaccinated, you’re protecting yourself, your family & your community. A way to encourage others to get the vaccine is by learning and sharing the facts about it from a trusted medical resource such as the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities.
