In support of the Biden-Harris Administration’s National Strategy for the COVID-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is organizing a virtual National Forum on COVID-19 Vaccine from February 22 to 24 that will bring together practitioners from national, state, tribal, local, and territorial levels who are engaged in vaccinating communities across the nation.
The Forum will support the Administration’s goals of mounting safe, effective, and comprehensive vaccine implementation strategies to protect those most at risk and advance health equity, particularly among communities that have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
Intended for practitioners focused on vaccine implementation, as well as people and groups that can champion vaccine uptake in communities, the Forum will facilitate information exchange on the most effective strategies to:
- Build trust and confidence in COVID-19 vaccines
- Use data to drive vaccine implementation
- Provide practical information for optimizing and maximizing equitable vaccine access
NACCHO encourages local health departments to attend, as the Forum will also feature how local health departments have implemented effective and equitable vaccination efforts.
