March 30th, 2023 (Scarsdale Public Library) The LOFT would like to thank The Westchester County Department of Health and County Executive George Latimer for the Special Recognition Award presented to The LOFT for our Outstanding Response to the MPOX Outbreak. During the Summer of 2022, The LOFT in partnership with the DOH, mobilized a rapid response series of clinics at The LOFT offering vaccines to our high-risk community members. The LOFT was the first LGBTQ+ Center in the nation to host Mpox vaccine clinics at its center. With this initiative we are able to provide 9 clinics and over 700 inoculations, helping to blunt the spread of the MPOX outbreak.
We are so grateful to be recognized for this award, and most importantly--grateful to the Westchester County Department of Health for partnering with us to empower our community!
