As members of Community Catalyst’s Vaccine Equity and Access Program (VEAP), a vital component to our collective success includes sharing and gathering community insights from one another. While challenges to each region and community can feel unique, many of these barriers are seen across community-based organizations (CBOs). Sharing solutions can aid in efforts to vaccinate people who are underserved and overlooked. To share real-world approaches to these barriers, the following CBOs discussed challenges they faced and solutions they deployed to address vaccine hesitancy, language barriers, misinformation, and other obstacles that hinder a shot towards a healthier, happier life.
