Racial and ethnic minorities, elderly individuals, those in underserved urban and rural areas, and members of other vulnerable groups are the most in need of the COVID-19 vaccine but face the greatest challenges to getting it. These individuals may lack resources to or be hesitant, confused, and/or skeptical of information about vaccine availability, safety, and efficacy. How can governments, the medical community, and community- and faith-based organizations reach them?
IMPAQ staff will present 12 projects at AcademyHealth’s 2021 Virtual Health Datapalooza and National Health Policy Conference. We look forward to sharing our research and engaging with the audience on topics including social determinants of health (SDoH), food insecurity, telehealth and more.
