Resumen Ejecutivo (PDF)

Seven months into the COVID-19 vaccination campaign in the United States, nearly 50% of the American population has been vaccinated. While this is a monumental accomplishment, there is still much work to do. This report provides specific guidance on adapting COVID-19 vaccination efforts to achieve greater vaccine coverage in underserved populations and, through this, to develop sustainable, locally appropriate mechanisms to advance equity in health.

Summary of recommendations (PDF)

200709-The-Publics-Role-in-COVID-19-Vacc

Published in July 2020, this report was developed by the Working Group on Readying Populations for COVID-19 Vaccine—a precursor to CommuniVax. The work was supported by the National Science Foundation-funded Social Science Extreme Events Research Network and the CONVERGE facility at the Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado Boulder.

 

The report considers human factors in relation to (at the time) future vaccines against SARS-CoV-2, drawing on insights from design thinking and the social, behavioral, and communication sciences. It provides recommendations—directed to both US policymakers and practitioners, as well as nontraditional partners new to public health’s mission of vaccination—on how to advance public understanding of, access to, and acceptance of vaccines that protect against COVID-19.
