Improving Vaccine Equity: How to Reach Vulnerable Populations

Webinar //

Date:

Oct 29 2019, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST

Description

Join us for a discussion of the use of vaccines as a part of a comprehensive disease prevention strategy and the need to reach all communities. More focused approaches for specific populations, such as those who are incarcerated, homeless or low-income, are necessary to prevent diseases and protect the public’s health in a meaningful and inclusive manner.

This webinar will highlight what the Houston Department of Health and the Rhode Island Department of Health are doing to promote vaccination access and awareness within some of our marginalized communities.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe methods to ensure an equitable approach to disease prevention
  • Discuss health promotion strategies to increase vaccine awareness among vulnerable populations
