Issue Brief on Vaccines(PDF)

As vaccines for COVID-19 are approved and become available for distribution, there are many questions about when they will be available for people experiencing homelessness as well as staff working in community-based programs (such as health centers and homeless shelters).

This discussion will identify the main challenges to vaccinating the HCH community, the strategies needed to ensure a successful vaccination campaign, and the immediate action steps to consider in order to be prepared. Please join us for this important discussion and bring your questions for our panelists to answer.
