Event Details

With continued COVID-19 activity, ensuring communities are protected from the flu this season will be more important now than ever. Outreach to African American communities—which have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic—will be especially critical. Join AIM for the second webinar in its Vaccine Confidence Webinar series to learn about:

– Recent research on flu vaccine uptake trends within African American communities

– Examples of public health partnerships supporting flu vaccine confidence

– How these findings and strategies can be applied to immunization work

Our first speaker, Dr. Sandra C. Quinn of the University of Maryland Center for Health Equity, will present her research related to the cultural factors and demographic trends within African American communities that influence flu vaccine uptake. Then, Dr. Laura Lee Hall of the Center for Sustainable Health Care Quality and Equity—part of the National Minority Quality Forum—will present on building partnerships with health care systems and researchers to identify ways to increase equitable flu vaccine coverage.
