Black History Month

“February is Black History Month. This month-long observance in the US and Canada is a chance to celebrate Black achievement and provide a fresh reminder to take stock of where systemic racism persists and give visibility to the people and organizations creating change.” – World Economic Forum Each year, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) picks a theme to focus on, bring the public’s attention to the experience, achievements, and social movements. The theme for 2022 is Black Health and Wellness!

UWM COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic UWM is following the guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: It is crucial that individuals stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccine doses, including boosters. Please see the CDC’s booster dose chart for detailed instructions on when to get a booster dose. Booster doses are available at the walk-in UWM Vaccination Clinic, or by visiting vaccines.gov and searching for a vaccine site near you.
