State Health Agency Launches COVID-19 Vaccination Equity Learning Series
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is launching a four-part series of shared learning forums in May entitled, "Advancing Health Equity through COVID-19 Vaccination."
These forums are open to the statewide network of vaccinators who are working to distribute the vaccine safely, efficiently and equitably across Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Hospital Association joins the Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative, Wisconsin Primary Health Care Association, Wisconsin Public Health Association, Wisconsin Association of Local Health Departments and Boards, Milwaukee Health Care Partnership and Pharmacy Society of Wisconsin in supporting this series.
Sessions will be held each Thursday in May from noon to 1 p.m. and will feature local vaccinators and their partners sharing experiences, practices and lessons learned for increasing access to and confidence in COVID-19 vaccines.
The first forum is May 6. Discussion will focus on strategies for increasing equitable access to vaccination for disproportionately affected groups.
