ASPPH Presents Webinar in Partnership with NACCHO: Engaging Communities to Increase Confidence in COVID-19 Vaccines

Recorded Event

Vaccine confidence is critical to maintaining vaccination coverage rates and protecting the health of individuals and communities. As COVID-19 vaccines are developed and distributed, addressing vaccine confidence will be a significant factor in ensuring optimal COVID-19 vaccine uptake. Community engagement is a critical component to improving confidence in vaccines and will require the involvement and cooperation of partners and stakeholders at all levels to engage diverse audiences and implement effective approaches.

This webinar, hosted by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), will highlight national COVID-19 vaccine efforts, as well as explore local and academic partnerships to engage communities and individuals and address confidence in COVID-19 vaccines.
