Sentinel Communities Insights: 'COVID-19: One Year Later' Vaccine Rollout, Implications for Community Recovery, and Critical Gaps That Remain - Synthesis Report   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "In 2020, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) began tracking the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] response and recovery efforts of nine communities across the United States with the goal of better understanding how the pandemic, and the local response to it, is impacting health, well-being, and equity in those communities. [...] In this report, over a year into the pandemic, we review efforts toward vaccination and community response and recovery across sectors--and the critical gaps that remain. The past year has shown that recovery from COVID-19 has demanded a response across sectors--health, economic, housing, education, and more--and communities have approached their responses across these sectors in different ways. The American Rescue Plan also brings historic funding to local communities who have significant discretion over how funds are used. While some have used COVID-19 response and recovery resources to reaffirm their approaches to health and equity, other communities continue to encounter long-standing barriers to solving such entrenched community problems."
