Disparities in the vaccination rates for traditionally underserved populations have occurred for influenza vaccinations for several years.1 These trends continue when looking at vaccinations for Covid-191 and use of PReP agents for HIV prevention,2 and will likely continue when vaccinations for RSV are approved in the near future. Therefore, it is imperative that these disparities are discussed lest they continue for all current and upcoming vaccination efforts. HCPs need to be aware of possible reasons for the disparities (e.g., lack of access to vaccines, vaccine hesitancy) in order to find and test different strategies for educating patients and working with them to achieve vaccination equity.
In this CMEOCast podcast, expert faculty will present the challenges to equitable vaccination rates for all patients, for a variety of vaccinations, and discuss how best to learn from previous attempts to ensure current and future vaccination can occur for all patients.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Analyze the influence of unconscious bias, health disparities, and health inequities on vaccine optimization.
Supported by an educational grant from Johnson & Johnson.
Physicians, NPs, PAs, nurses, and pharmacists.
