COVID-19 and Vaccines: What Community Health Workers Need to Know
MCN + NRC RIM logos

DATE: Part 1 - January 13, 2022 | 10:00 am (PT) / 12:00 pm (CT) / 1:00 pm (ET)

Description

This two-part webinar series offers an introduction to COVID-19 to support Community Health Workers (CHWs) in their efforts to promote acceptance and uptake of COVID-19 vaccines in the communities they serve. CHWs serve a critical role in the sharing of information about COVID-19 and they regularly experience challenges due to misinformation and disinformation, which are hindering communities from being fully vaccinated. Part 1 will review the core information that CHWs need to know about COVID-19, variants and vaccines. It also will help CHWs identify trusted sources of information and resources to address misinformation and disinformation. Part 2 will focus on vaccine resources for refugee, immigrant and migrant communities and show ways to create communications campaigns and tailor materials that are responsive to the cultural and linguistic needs of the community served.
