Philly Counts

Empowering residents to take action and be agents of change in their communities.


Philly Counts coordinates community engagement efforts. Currently, the initiative is focused on helping all Philadelphia residents understand why they should consider getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

This City initiative teaches residents how to:

  • Share information about the vaccine.
  • Answer difficult questions.
  • Connect people with vaccine opportunities.

Philly Counts works with a network of staff, volunteers, neighborhood leaders, and community-based organizations. We also work in partnership with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health.

Philly Counts responds to emerging community needs. To learn more about how we work, read about our approach.

Help us spread the word about vaccines

We're calling on residents to become vaccine champions — trusted messengers who share useful information through a neighbor-to-neighbor strategy. We’ll provide you with up-to-date facts about COVID-19 and the vaccine so you can have successful conversations with family, friends, and neighbors.

We hold Vaccine Information Champion training online every other week. If you’re part of a community group, we can also come to you. We can provide group training in English, Spanish, Mandarin, and ASL.
