Updates and Events Across NACCHO

  • COVID-19 Vaccine Authorization - We are here to help
    With the approval of the first COVID-19 vaccine, efforts now move toward distribution and administration. NACCHO is here to support all local health departments as the work is implemented locally and we are committed to keeping our federal partners informed about how the vaccine rollout is going at the local level. We recognize that much of the response is currently being managed at the state and federal levels and many of you are experiencing different levels of engagement and success in working with your state and federal partners.  At this extremely important time, we want to hear from you if you are having issues related to COVID-19 vaccine deployment including distribution and administration.  We will be elevating them to CDC and other federal partners to ensure they know how vaccine administration is working at the local level. Please send any questions or issues to preparedness@naccho.org.

COVID-19 Testing Communications Toolkit : A new COVID-19 Testing Communications Toolkit is now available for anyone looking to communicate the importance of COVID-19 testing to communities across America. The Toolkit offers easy step-by-step campaigning tutorials, evidence-based handouts, and image library to help translate public health goals into motivating, clear messages that educate Americans about why, when, and where to get tested — even if they feel healthy.
