Speakers Rachael N. Reed, DrPH, and Sarah Hershey, RN, BSN will expand your knowledge and competence regarding health inequities in influenza and COVID-19 immunization coverage and discuss how to address these inequities in your practices. 

Influenza immunization rates have historically been well below Healthy People 2020 goals. COVID-19 vaccine coverage rates have reached historical highs compared with other adult immunizations, however, vaccine coverage rates still need to increase to help better control the spread of COVID. Inequities persist in both influenza and COVID-19 vaccination rates across different population groups. Providers require the most current information available on these inequities, and the social determinants of health that cause them. This webcast will review inequities in influenza and COVID-19 immunizations and how providers and public health advocates can address these inequities in their practices and programs.
