COVID-19 VACCINE
BOOTCAMPS

Empowering Providers
to Improve Vaccine Uptake

I-VAC was developed to support the expansion of COVID-19 vaccine administration into routine patient care workflows in primary care settings, hospital urgent care centers, and upon hospital discharge. COVID-19 Vaccine Bootcamps are specially designed to give providers and provider organizations important foundational knowledge and skills related to COVID-19 vaccine administration and distribution. This includes developing a process for identifying unvaccinated patients, learning how to embed reminders for vaccines into your workflow, and creating strategies for overcoming vaccine hesitancy through culturally and linguistically appropriate methods.
