COVID Vaccines Beginning to Roll Out

COVID Vaccines are here and are beginning to roll out! At this time only essential healthcare workers have access to vaccines in Philadelphia. This is due to decisions made at the national level to limit the numbers of doses released and sent to the states. Pennsylvania, and Philadelphia, have chosen to use the limited doses they have for direct service healthcare workers, including in hospitals, health centers, nursing homes, etc. However, keep in mind that after January 20 a new plan will be in place. While the order of who will get vaccines may not change, the amount of time to move through the various groups who are eligible may speed up, and when it does, FIGHT will be ready to vaccinate our patients.

Check Out Our New Series of FIGHT Stories

FIGHT Stories is an annual project that started in 2010 as a way for FIGHT’s clients and consumers to share their personal stories of struggle, triumph and hope with our community. At FIGHT, we believe storytelling is one of the most valuable tools we have to communicate how impactful the work of our agency has been and continues to be in the lives of those we serve.

Every year, a dedicated team of staffers and interns begins the multi-step, multimedia process of interviewing, audio/video recording, photographing story participants and finally, compiling the words of each participant into a story than can be shared on the internet, in FIGHT publications, and on our office walls.

2020 is the 10th anniversary of the FIGHT Stories Project, and we’re proud to have profiled nearly 100 community members. These stories are the heart of FIGHT and we look forward to sharing more inspiring and powerful journeys of the clients and consumers that we are proud to serve.
