Building Vaccine Confidence through Community Engagement
Toolkit for Events
In March 2021 the American Pharmacists Association selected AACP as a partner on a project, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention*, to address COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy and to stimulate vaccine confidence. This project was created to empower pharmacists, as trusted messengers, to reach out to their patients and communities with resources and tools created by the CDC.
AACP was selected because our colleges and schools of pharmacy represented a unique channel for community engagement. In addition, faculty and students had already participated in other events and, in most cases, were able to administer vaccines.
Members can learn more about the 2021 Vaccine Confidence Campaign events, and how to implement these events in your communities.
