Addressing COVID Vaccination Rates in Underserved Communities
Apr 16, 2021 from 1:15 PM to 2:45 PM (ET)
Addressing COVID Vaccination Rates in Underserved Communities Data, Tools, and Supporting Information
COVID inoculation rates in U.S. minority communities are dismal, hovering around 8%. They are currently eight times higher in white communities. Studies show that causes include misinformation about vaccine effectiveness and safety, lack of trust in government institutions and drug companies, the digital divide, language barriers, inaccessibility of vaccination sites, deportation fears by undocumented immigrants, identifying and reaching underserved communities to address equity, among others.
Join the American Public Health Association, the GWU Milken Institute School of Public Health, MDB, and SSF, in a free 90-minute webinar explaining tools and approaches to raise vaccination rates in underserved communities.
Panelists from Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response and the Office of Minority Health in the Department of Health and Human Services providing the latest tools, technical assistance, and grants for addressing equity and reaching underserved communities.
