DoorDash, the National Association of Community Health Centers, and Direct Relief are teaming up to support COVID-19 vaccination efforts by health centers across the country.

Donation Opportunity

We appreciate everything you are doing for your communities and patients every day, particularly over the past year in response to the pandemic. As the country works towards getting as many people vaccinated as possible, DoorDash, an online food ordering and food delivery platform, has offered a donation of meal delivery gift cards to support COVID-19 vaccine outreach and participation efforts with health centers across the country. Through this initiative, health centers can receive gift cards for patients who have yet to be vaccinated, or for those who have been recently vaccinated, to help put food on the table and rest, reducing the burden of potential side effects.

It’s incredible that community health centers have administered more than 10 million vaccine doses and have increased the number of doses administered each week since early January. Direct Relief, NACHC, and DoorDash are committed to continue to expand vaccine access to patients nationwide served by health centers. This effort supports the National Month of Action to encourage vaccinations in key communities across the country.
