The San Bernardino Faith-Based Initiative provides COVID-19 Mobile Vaccination Clinics to vulnerable and marginalized communities through collaboration with trusted faith-based partners in San Bernardino County. Faith leaders aid in the dissemination of COVID-19 vaccine information and address questions and concerns from the community. Through health summits, Q&A sessions, official statements, and information shared during services, faith leaders have provided trustworthy information about COVID-19 resources that help address misinformation by answering important questions from community members. The trusted partnerships with faith leaders have been instrumental in reaching vulnerable and remote communities. The success of this initiative lies in its partnerships. From churches to resource centers, these partnerships have allowed for the distribution of health education and resources to communities in reliable and safe spaces
