Request for Applications: Partnering for Vaccine Equity

Jun 07, 2022 | Victoria Thompson, Katherine Waters

NACCHO, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is pleased to provide funding for the Partnering for Vaccine Equity project. The goal of this project is to support local health departments (LHDs) through enhanced capacity, partnerships, and technical assistance to identify and address inequities in influenza and COVID-19 vaccination coverage among racial and ethnic minority adults.

Expectations

The selected LHD demonstration sites will be expected to undertake the following activities based on the scope of work (A or B) chosen with completion no later than July 31, 2023.

Scope of Work A ($75,000): Communications Campaign to Strengthen COVID-19 and Influenza Uptake

  • With the support of NACCHO, conduct CDC’s Rapid Community Assessment activity designed to identify communities at-risk for low vaccine uptake, better understand the local community’s vaccine needs and decisions, identify areas of intervention, and prioritize potential intervention strategies. This is a critical element of the award and will require a substantial time commitment.
  • Plan and implement a communications campaign to promote influenza and COVID-19 vaccination uptake using lessons learned from the Rapid Community Assessment activity. The communications campaign should be specific to the jurisdiction and/or population of focus and may include traditional methods such as paid media and non-traditional methods, such as peer-to-peer education.
  • Participate in scheduled (i.e., monthly, or bi-monthly) calls with NACCHO to monitor project progress, engage in peer networking, share best practices and resources, and receive technical assistance. Technical assistance may include facilitating connections between demonstration sites and subject matter experts, training opportunities for LHD staff, and/or providing activity planning and implementation support.
  • Designate at least one LHD staff member to complete NACCHO’s Roots of Health Inequity course module(s) and incorporate learnings in LHD practice or strategies.
  • Partner with NACCHO to develop new and/or update existing materials and share subject matter expertise focused on adults from racial and ethnic minority groups experiencing inequities in influenza and COVID-19 vaccination coverage and uptake.
  • Participate in evaluation activities and document project outcomes. As such, recipients will be expected to conduct the following activities:
    • Submit final report detailing the successes, challenges, and lessons learned from participation in the project.
    • Submit progress reports (monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, etc.) to share outcomes, challenges, and needs related to vaccine promotion and accessibility activities.
  • Designate one LHD main point of contact with whom NACCHO will directly communicate on all matters related to this project.
  • Participate in NACCHO’s evaluation and assessment activities (i.e., a pre-assessment, post-assessment, mid-year interviews), and project close out interviews.

Scope of Work B ($150,000): Enhanced Communications Campaign- Coordinating and Collaborating with Partners to Develop Strategies to Strengthen COVID-19 and Influenza Uptake

  • Completion of all activities listed above in SOW A in addition to the activities outlined below.
  • Identify and implement an intervention beyond a communications campaign that enhances collaboration and coordination of adult immunization services with a partner(s) in the jurisdiction. Examples may include, but are not limited to:
    • Provider education to enhance timely and accurate administration and communication of recommendation vaccinations
    • Coordination of mobile vaccination, home visits and/or workplace vaccination program
    • Healthcare provider practice support (IIS enrollment, standing orders, data sharing agreements, reminder/recall)
    • Development of immunization stakeholder coalition or taskforce
  • Develop a workplan and corresponding evaluation plan with identified program activities, outcomes, and goals.
  • Develop and share documentation of collaborating and coordinating with a partner(s) to improve adult immunization services (examples include but are not limited to standard operating and reporting procedures, educational materials for community, promotional materials, training modules, sample MOUs, data sharing, cost sharing, and other legal agreements between the entities).
  • Documentation of the partnership development process with a logic model.
  • Final report documenting methods, results, conclusions, and lessons learned.
