This article evaluates the effectiveness of a “Motivate, Vaccinate, and Activate” strategy to increase the vaccination of Hispanic/Latinx San Francisco Mission residents. The strategy relied on community mobilization and ambassadors to motivate others to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Following the implementation of this strategy, vaccination rates among Hispanic/Latinx community members exceeded the overall vaccination rate of Hispanic/Latinx residents across San Francisco.
