Developing/Enhancing Community Partnerships to Increase COVID Vaccination and Immunization Uptake

Effective community partnerships can be very beneficial in reaching populations of individuals impacted by social and structural determinants of health. Innovative partnerships allow for organizations to collaborate in an effort to serve the needs of surrounding communities. It is through these partnerships that the needs of disadvantaged communities are met, and barriers are appropriately addressed. During the height of COVID, a federally qualified health center in St. Louis, Missouri, sought to address the impact COVID-19 was having on north St. Louis communities. The organization partnered with grassroot organizations to provide COVID testing and vaccination in several communities, reaching more than 75,000 community members.
