ABSTRACT

U.S. Equity-First Vaccination Initiative: Early Insights   [open html - 0B]

From the Document: "The Equity-First Vaccination Initiative (EVI) aims to reduce racial disparities in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination rates in the United States and, over the longer term, to strengthen the public health system to achieve more-equitable outcomes. To accomplish these goals, The Rockefeller Foundation has funded demonstration sites in Baltimore, Maryland; Chicago, Illinois; Houston, Texas; Newark, New Jersey; and Oakland, California, to plan and implement hyper-local, place-based strategies to increase vaccine confidence and access for communities that identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC). This interim report introduces the initiative and the anchor partners in each of the five demonstration sites, highlights the initial work of selected community-based organizations to which the anchor partners are making subgrants, synthesizes lessons learned across the EVI in its first three months, and suggests policy implications for decisionmakers to consider as they seek to support hyper-local, community-driven efforts to reduce inequities in COVID-19 vaccination."
