Community Group Gets Creative to Battle Vaccine Hesitancy

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– El Sol Neighborhood Educational Center (El Sol) has found a successful blueprint to tackle vaccine hesitancy.

They recently produced and performed an interactive play and a comic book series. El Sol’s community-led production features a hero named Captain Empath who fights against the COVID-19 virus by educating and motivating community members to protect themselves by getting vaccinated.

Let’s join Captain Empath in this fight! As of August 26, 53% of our Hispanic (ages 12+) community, 65.5% of our Black/African American (ages 12+) community, and 62% of our white non-Hispanic (ages 12+) community are yet to be vaccinated. To learn more about vaccination rates in your city, please visit our award-winning vaccine dashboard at and select Data Dashboard.
