DC Grandparents Against COVID-19

Join DC Grandparents Against COVID-19

DC Grandparents Against COVID-19 is a movement by DC residents 60+ years of age who are united in encouraging loved ones of all ages to get vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19.

Save the lives of your loved ones! Here's how it works:

1. Sign up by providing your contact information below. 

2. Commit to talking to four or more people about getting vaccinated or boosted. 

3. Attend weekly educational sessions to learn tips on how to encourage others.

4. Let us know how successful you were by participating in a survey. 

If your loved ones of any age are not vaccinated or boosted, you can make a difference! Learn tips from other grandparents and health professionals!

“I have seen too many people die. I don’t want to bury my children or grandchildren. I have to be an example for them … We can get through this together. It’s going to take the whole country, the whole world to make a difference. But we can look out for each other in our neighborhoods and communities.”

Judy Brown​
Grandmother, Resident of Ward 8

If you are a grandparent (or like a grandparent), you can influence loved ones who are not vaccinated and save lives.
