Participants from Local Health Departments Needed for Mass Vaccination Planning Research

NACCHO is working with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in an effort to characterize readiness and capacities for conduction mass vaccinations in the United States. As part of this effort, we would deeply appreciate learning about your experiences conducting or exercising mass vaccination operations in your jurisdiction. If you are willing to share your experiences, our partners at the Center for Health Security will conduct 30-40-minute telephone interviews with you. You are welcome to invite others in your agency who should be a part of the call.

The information we gain will help us to develop recommendations for policymakers and legislators regarding the policies and resources necessary to strengthen and maintain these capabilities. We will not share identifying information unless we have permission from individuals and their agencies to do so. If you agree to participate in this effort, please email Ray Puerini, Senior Program Analyst for Preparedness, at rpuerini@naccho.org by Monday, Dec. 3. Our partners at the Center for Health Security expect to schedule interviews beginning mid-December.
