Sample script: "Hi, my name is ________ and I reside in your ward at _____________. I am calling to urge you to endorse, co-sponsor and work for the passage of the Take the Vaccine to the People Ordinance [O2021-1214]. Our community greatly needs this Ordinance. It would guarantee easy and convenient access to vaccinations, testing, contact tracing and information at walking distance from every home. It would provide good jobs for people in our communities, who would organize and educate at the neighborhood level and dispel the misinformation that has gone out about Covid and Vaccinations. And it would begin to rebuild our public health system, which is the only way we will be prepared for future pandemics and environmental crises."
