Cooperative agreements to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and IHEs for educational programs related to the benefits of vaccination. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to increase confidence in the use of vaccines, especially in BIPOC populations and other populations with low rates of vaccination.
This initiative seeks to expand traditional immunization partnerships to plan, implement, and evaluate evidence-based practices and develop novel approaches to increase confidence in vaccines in local communities, particularly partnerships with minority-serving or other advocacy organizations that work with populations with low vaccination rates (e.g., African Americans and residents in rural communities). The goal of these demonstration projects is to identify effective vaccination policies informed by evidence and best practice models to improve the public’s confidence in the use of vaccines, particularly among racial and ethnic minority and other disadvantaged or disenfranchised populations. Practical solutions at local levels are needed to help support vaccination efforts in communities by healthcare providers, immunization program managers, immunization advocates, vaccine manufacturers, and other stakeholders. OIDP and the Office of Regional Health Operations (ORHO) are collaborating to implement this project. OIDP and ORHO are operational components in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH).
This project centers around building partnerships with community stakeholders to increase confidence in the use of vaccines by the public, healthcare providers, and policymakers, especially in communities that have lower vaccination coverage rates. Its objectives are:
a. Identify a local community with low vaccination coverage rates and lagging confidence in vaccines, characterize the community, determine causes for the lack of vaccine confidence, and the magnitude of the problem;
b. Plan and implement targeted interventions in the community designed to increase confidence in vaccines and the community's willingness to be vaccinated;
c. Evaluate the intervention qualitatively and with quantitative measures (e.g., changes in numbers or percentages of vaccines administered compared to baseline), determine the value added by the intervention, and, if appropriate, recommend how the intervention should be used in other similar communities to increase vaccine confidence.
