It was developed by Sostento’s Project Finish Line Team with inputs from scientific experts in vaccinology in support of free and charitable clinics across the country. WAFCC is working with this group to bring you accurate, timely information about COVID-19 and the upcoming vaccine distribution. We will present our overall plan for this initiative on our FCC Leaders Call on Friday, December 18th at 11 AM. We hope you can join us for that important session.
