On March 23, 2021 MTPC, GLAD, and the Massachusetts Trans Health Coalition hosted an information forum regarding COVID-19 Vaccines specifically for trans, nonbinary, and gender expansive community members. Trans, nonbinary, and gender expansive community members are often denied care and experience an overall lack of access to information, resources, and support. Medical experts discussed concerns and answered questions regarding the safety, availability, and rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine.
