We can't do this without you!

The COVID-19 vaccination program is one of the largest and most complex public health initiatives in Wisconsin’s history. We are committed to the safe, quick, and equitable distribution of the vaccine, and recognize that public education and community outreach is vital to our vaccination efforts. Our community partners across the state are critical to the success of this program.

This page is designed to equip our partners with the tools, resources, and information they need to protect their communities and promote COVID-19 vaccine confidence. We encourage our partners to share, use, or adapt these materials to best serve the needs of their community. Most resources will be available in multiple languages.

We will continue to update resources and more information as the COVID-19 vaccination program continues to expand.

Tips and resources for your own communications

Talking about the COVID-19 vaccine

Using data to target your communication efforts

  • Target your outreach by using the Neighborhood Health Partnerships’ interactive tool, COVID-19 Relative Mortality Risk and Barriers to Vaccination by ZIP Code. It lets you search by county and see which ZIP codes in your county have lowest resources or opportunities to protect their health with vaccines.
  • Diagnose and address access and confidence challenges in your area. CDC 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. 

Training in COVID-19 vaccine communication 

Is your organization promoting COVID-19 vaccine confidence in your community? We offer in-depth trainings and a tailored presentation to partners about the Vaccine Communication Framework. Our goal is to give the trusted voices in the community the information and resources they need to feel confident about educating their communities. For more information, please email our vaccine team.

You can also view the Public Health Communication Collaborative’s resources and recorded webinars to gain deeper understanding of COVID-19 vaccine and public health communication. Topics include Successful COVID-19 Messaging in Rural Communities and messaging recommendations.
