COVID-19 Health Equity Team | Primary Health Network
  • COVID Health Equity Team

Inclusive and equitable access to medical care and health information is imperative when creating and sustaining a healthy, thriving community. Primary Health Network, alongside Buhl Regional Health Foundation, is working within Mercer County and the surrounding areas to provide education and access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Currently, the COVID Health Equity Team is setting up vaccine registration events in the community that aim to provide education and access to COVID-19 vaccines and vaccination providers.

What is Health Equity?

Health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be healthy. However, factors outside of a person’s control, such as discrimination and lack of resources, can prevent them from achieving their best health.

Inequities in healthcare have been especially noticeable during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is why our team of experts are working to remove the real and perceived obstacles preventing our community from getting vaccinated. They offer onsite vaccine scheduling services and education.
