Additional resources

Tips and resources for your own communications

  • Diagnose and address access and confidence challenges in your area. CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has developed a Rapid Community Assessment Guide with customizable research instruments that can be adapted to different communities, including key informant interview guides, listening sessions, and a vaccine confidence survey.
  • You can use the free Vaccine Equity Planner to identify useful partners or locations to hold vaccination clinics, easily taking into account distances to existing vaccination sites, varying social vulnerability, and people’s intentions to get vaccinated. This tool identifies COVID-19 “vaccine deserts,” where people have little or no convenient access to vaccination, and potential new vaccination sites to address the gaps.

You can view the Public Health Communication Collaborative’s resources and recorded webinars to gain deeper understanding of COVID-19 vaccine and public health communication.

Other federal and state resources

  • CDC COVID-19 materials for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and care providers –  View and share videos, posters, social stories, and interactive activities in English and Spanish.
  • CDC’s Health Equity Guiding Principles for Inclusive Communication  –  Apply health equity guiding principles across your public health communication work, including when creating information resources and presentations, when engaging with partners, and/or when developing and reviewing external or internal communication materials. This means:
  • Public Health Alliance of Southern California  –  Checkout their video series on vaccine equity.
  • Refugee Community Advisory Board - Milwaukee  –  Share educational COVID-19 videos with your audience. Many videos are available in multiple languages.
