NACCHO Awards Funding to Support Local Health Departments to Increase Vaccine Uptake through COVID-19

Apr 20, 2021 | Robin Mowson

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), the voice of the country’s nearly 3,000 local health departments, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Immunization Services Divisions, has awarded 10 local health departments funding to support local efforts to maintain and increase immunization coverage levels of routinely recommended vaccines including influenza, as well as protect vulnerable communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project is designed to identify needs of LHDs to reach and protect at-risk or vulnerable populations and will include collaboration and coordination with partners at the national, state, and local level to provide capacity building and technical assistance, training, information sharing, and material development to strengthen public health immunization strategies.

Local health departments awardees, which will receive up to $25,000 for the project are:

  • Boston Public Health Commission, MA
  • Central District Health, ID
  • Ingham County Health Department, MI
  • City of Lubbock, TX
  • City of Minneapolis, MN
  • Moffat County, CO
  • County of Onslow, NC
  • Pima County, AZ
  • San Juan Basin Public Health, CO
  • Williamson County and Cities Health District, TX

Project activities will include: (1) Technical assistance and information sharing between demonstration sites and partners, subject matter experts, and NACCHO which may include training opportunities and/or implementation support; (2) Collaboration between LHDs, partners and NACCHO to develop new or update existing resources addressing the importance of vaccine uptake for routine, influenza, and/or COVID-19 vaccines; and (3) Collaboration with stakeholders representing at-risk or vulnerable populations (e.g., those representing racial or ethnic populations) and sectors (e.g., schools, faith-based institutions) critical for supporting immunization efforts.
