Looming Challenges of COVID-19 Immunization

NEHI completed a project to address low rates of adult immunization, rates that fell short of national goals before the COVID pandemic, and have grown into even larger gaps in public health. NEHI’s March 2020 white paper entitled, Unlocking the Unrealized Potential of Adult Immunization, outlines recommendations developed through NEHI’s research and a multi-stakeholder panel convened in Washington in 2019. With the onset of COVID-19, NEHI pivoted to the urgent need for rapid, equitable, immunization with oncoming COVID-19 vaccines. In August, with expert panels from multiple industry sectors, NEHI launched its Vaccine Summit Series: Looming Challenges of COVID-19 Immunization, which has focused on building vaccine confidence through communication and messaging to ensure adoption, especially in minority communities, as well
as infrastructure needs (e.g., information systems, administration site capacity, provider availability).
