example 1: media campaign

Required Action Area:

  • Enhance/amplify messaging (including through translation) to promote COVID-19 vaccination, especially among underserved populations. 

Population:

The population served is the residents in a 60-mile radius area surrounding our organization where most of the census tracts show high social vulnerability according to the Social Vulnerability Index.

 

Reach:

We are an established Spanish-language radio station reaching approximately 3,000 listeners each week. We estimate that this campaign will reach around 4,000 individuals within the community.

 

Proposed Activities:

This 2-year project focuses on amplifying messaging to promote COVID-19 vaccination, especially among underserved populations. This will be accomplished by providing equitable, accessible information to the socially vulnerable population of individuals with limited English proficiency. The campaign will involve short informational spots on local radio and television, as well as information displayed in areas such as bus stops and public restrooms. Print materials will be created and out for display at the local library, community centers, faith-based organizations, and other identified places where this population is likely to gather. All media will be translated into 5 different languages (English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Swahili, and Somali).

example 2: staffing/infrastructure

Required Action Area:

  • Promote COVID-19 and other vaccinations to increase vaccine confidence in racial and ethnic minority groups and to increase accessibility for people with disabilities. 

 

Population:

The target population is underserved communities in the county, especially individuals who are uninsured or covered by Medicaid.

 

Reach:

As an FQHC, we serve approximately 3,000 patients annually. This project is estimated to reach approximately 1,500 people.

Proposed Activities:

This local FQHC will create and hire a “vaccine navigation team” of 6 part-time individuals to serve the community over the next year. This team will monitor and improve access to vaccinations in underserved communities including racial and ethnic minority groups and other populations found to have low access.  The vaccine navigation team will be made up of people speaking English, Spanish, and Vietnamese. They will staff a local warm-line where individuals can call with any questions they may have about vaccines, and will serve as translators during outreach and education events. They will also provide weekly door-to-door educational services, where they will provide information to households about all FQHC services, including all recommended vaccinations. If desired, they will also assist in making appointments and/or arranging transportation for services. The team will help individuals and families in the local community navigate through the process of receiving all suggested vaccines (including the COVID-19 vaccine if applicable) as efficiently and easily as possible.

example 3: community events

Required Action Area:

  • Partner, plan, and implement vaccination activities with critical organizations, high-risk, and specific populations.

 

Population:

Our project seeks to serve areas of the county where high-risk populations reside. This includes (but is not limited to) senior housing areas, areas with a high population of low-income or homeless individuals, and congregate settings serving people with disabilities.

 

Reach:

On average, the Family Service Center serves around 2,000 people annually. Over 1500 of these also fall into a high-risk category, such as older adults, those experiencing homelessness, or those living in a congregate setting. It is estimated that this project will reach around 1000 individuals.

 

Proposed Activities:

Using provided funding, the Family Service Center will partner, plan, and implement vaccination activities with critical organizations, high-risk, and specific populations. These activities will be provided through health promotion events at various locations throughout the county, held on a quarterly basis over 2 years. These events will provide information and referrals to local county health services and resources, including (but not limited to) mental and behavioral health services, dental and vision services, WIC and SNAP applications, housing assistance, and veteran services. Information on routine childhood vaccinations and COVID-19 vaccinations will be available, and nursing staff will be available to provide vaccinations on-site. All information will be provided in both English and Spanish, and Spanish translators will be present at each event.

example 4: mobile vaccine clinics

Required Action Area:

  • Implement vaccine strike teams, mobile vaccine clinics, satellite clinics, temporary, or off-site clinics to travel and provide vaccination services in non-traditional settings and/or to supplement the work of local health departments in underserved communities.

 

Population:

Our project seeks to serve the vaccine-hesitant in the Diocese. The vaccination rate among people over 12 in the counties served by the Diocese is less than 45%.

 

Reach:

The thirteen congregations in this partnership have a total weekly attendance of 416 parishioners. We anticipate reaching 400 people with messaging and our goal is to vaccinate 50 people.

 

Proposed Activities:

Each week, a vaccine strike team will travel to a participating church and administer vaccines. Parish leadership in the thirteen congregations have agreed to host a clinic, promote participation and provide volunteer support.
