No Barriers Program: A Successful Joint Effort in Stamford

Kathleen Silard, President & CEO, Stamford Health

In late winter of 2021, the No Barriers program came to life. This program strived to allow all individuals in the community access to the COVID-19 vaccine... without barriers.

On behalf of all of Stamford Health and the communities we serve, I am grateful and proud to have made an impact in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

Below is a short film capturing the spirit of the program and its success, followed by a transcript of the video.

Stamford Health, along with local community organizations and individuals, joined efforts to create the No Barriers Program in February of 2021.

The No Barriers program facilitated vaccinations for minorities, undocumented residents and non-English speaking people. The program helped over 3,000 individuals who were at risk for COVID-19 get a vaccine, during a time when vaccine demand greatly exceeded supply.

"I'm a family doctor," [remarked one physician of the program]. "And as a family doctor, I have to practice what I preach to myself, to my family, my husband and to my patients."

Thank you to the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation and to our many No Barriers program partners for helping the communities we are so proud to serve. Stamford is a great city because of its people.
