Increasing COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake Among Members of Racial and Ethnic Minority Communities: A Guide for Developing, Implementing, and Monitoring Community-Driven Strategies   [open pdf - 688KB]

From the Purpose: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Vaccination Supplemental Funding to IP19-1901 requires use of 10% of total funding for high-risk and underserved populations. This guide aims to support immunization awardees in establishing a community-driven approach and work plan for developing, implementing, and monitoring strategies to increase vaccine uptake among communities of focus. The guide focuses on racial and ethnic minority communities as an example due to the disproportionate burden of COVID-19 among these groups, but it is applicable to other communities that are hard to reach, experience marginalization or discrimination, and/or demonstrate vaccine hesitancy. This guide may be supplemented with additional materials and resources as more is learned about effective strategies and interventions. When finalized, CDC-RFA-1P21-2108, 'Partnering with National Organizations to Support Community-Based Organizations to Increase Vaccination Coverage Across Different Racial and Ethnic Adult Populations Currently Experiencing Disparities,' can help support the partner network described in this guide; planned partnerships and organizations to be funded are still in development."
