In this continuing education program, we will discuss ways that healthcare providers can become more aware of barriers to COVID-19 vaccination uptake in underserved communities. Barriers range from physical and logistical barriers to myths and beliefs that result in vaccine hesitancy. Awareness of such issues will equip healthcare providers with the appropriate tools to accommodate for specific barriers in hopes to increase COVID-19 vaccination rates in underserved communities.
In this CE, we will discuss ways in which the healthcare provider can effectively engage in conversations with patients to understand and assess the source of vaccine hesitancy, explore current myths and beliefs surrounding Covid-19 vaccines, and review effective language to use with hesitant patients in an effort to bring those vaccine rates back up.
In this interactive question and answer session, the mechanism of action of the COVID-19 vaccines as well as their efficacy and safety profiles will be discussed
