Dates: February 22-24, 2021
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is organizing this 3-day virtual forum that will bring together practitioners from national, state, tribal, local, and territorial levels who are engaged in vaccinating communities across the country. The forum will support the Administration’s goals of mounting safe, effective, and comprehensive vaccine implementation strategies to protect those most at risk and advance health equity, particularly among communities that have been most disproportionately affected by COVID-19. The Forum is intended for practitioners focused on vaccine implementation, as well as people and groups that can champion vaccine uptake in communities across the country. You can learn more about the forum here and this flyer.
• Promising Practice Plenaries. Each day will begin with an opening Plenary to facilitate the sharing of critical scientific information, engage government leaders, and showcase promising practices from communities.
• Practitioner Town Halls. Concurrent Town Halls will follow the Plenaries, providing an opportunity for participants to engage with subject matter experts and exchange information on how to apply lessons learned in vaccine implementation.
• Roundtable Discussions. Within each Town Hall, small group Roundtable Discussions will take place to allow for networking and sharing amongst participants.
