Approaching the Vaccine Patient: An Evidence-based approach to Addressing Vaccine Hesitancy
The COVID-19 pandemic has created unique challenges for vulnerable and underserved communities. Limited access to care, distrust of the medical community, and lack of reliable sources of information complicate efforts to improve the health of vulnerable populations, specifically in COVID-19 vaccine uptake. Research has found pharmacists are one of the most trusted sources of health information for their communities and are essential in the fight against vaccine hesitancy and misinformation. The purpose of this program is to present pharmacists and other healthcare professionals with approaches for addressing vaccine hesitancy in the communities they serve.
This project was funded in part through a grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, #OT2HL156812 – Alabama Community Engagement Alliance against COVID-19 Disparities (Alabama CEAL) project, under subcontracts with Research Triangle Institute and Westat, Inc.
