- The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia answers frequently asked questions on their COVID-19 Vaccine Education Center website.
- 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.
