Support for Partners
CDC is working to improve equity in adult immunization across disproportionately affected populations through partnerships that drive community-level action, including support for vaccination in racial and ethnic minority groups.
Support for partners – specifically those organizations at the local and community levels – aim to help them to inform, implement, and assess activities focused on vaccine awareness, access, availability, and confidence in their communities. This support includes learning community for partners, data-informed technical assistance, and deploying communications.

CDC provides learning support to partners, including technical assistance, coaching, subject matter expertise, peer-to-peer learning, and a central hub for outreach materials and resources.
One-on-one coaching and subject matter expertise to support program delivery
Peer-to-Peer and Group Learning

Access to a repository of curated and evaluated materials and resources to support programming
Data-Informed Technical Assistance
CDC provides data analysis combined with technical assistance to support and guide local partners in planning and implementation efforts to reduce racial disparities in vaccination.
- Highlights communities of color that may be experiencing barriers around access and confidence;
- Identifies sub-populations who may have elevated risk based on age, race/ethnicity, health conditions, or income; and
- Prioritizes geographic areas to focus outreach efforts and vaccine access based on populations most in need.
- Hosts webinars, office hours, and facilitated knowledge sharing of leading practices to support the partner network;
- Analyzes organizations’ data to provide insight on communities most in need; and,
- Focuses vaccine outreach efforts.
CDC supports long-term efforts building trust in vaccines among racial and ethnic minority groups by deploying communications, addressing misinformation on social media, and promoting accurate vaccine messaging.
