HEALTH EQUITY
Emerging data shows that some racial and ethnic minority groups are experiencing a disproportionate burden of illness and death from COVID-19. These tools and strategies can help your practice address these and other disparities, which can lead to disease outbreaks affecting certain groups more than others.
These tools and strategies can help your practice identify and fill workflow gaps, including assessing vaccination status, enhancing vaccine communications, providing vaccine education, and improving vaccine management and administration in your office.
ALERTS: Up-to-Date Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Find information for administration, storage and handling, reporting, and patient education. Visit the CDC website to learn more. Learn why healthcare personnel need to be vaccinated.

Ensuring immunization services are maintained or re-initiated is essential for protecting individuals and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases. This includes the flu vaccine and those at high risk of serious complications.
As a healthcare provider, a strong vaccination recommendation to your patients is critical. The CDC suggests using the SHARE method.
CONNECT LOCALLY
One of the most effective ways to increase vaccination rates is to collaborate with your state immunization program, local immunization coalition or other vaccine advocates in your community. Visit the Community Preventive Services Task Force website at TheCommunityGuide.org for more information.
