City of Cleveland Announces Participation in Nationwide “Month of Action”
Mayor Frank G. Jackson today announced that the City of Cleveland will be participating in the United States Conference of Mayor’s “Month of Action” Vaccine Challenge. The U.S. Conference of Mayors is launching its month-long challenge to get Americans vaccinated on June 4, with a goal of having 70% of Americans vaccinated by the 4th of July.
This effort is led by the United States Conference of Mayors in conjunction with President Joe Biden, the White House, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Though more than 290 million shots have been administered in cities nationwide since December 2020, only 49% percent of adults have received one shot or been fully vaccinated.
