What is VaccinateForAll?
In March 2021, The National Hispanic Medical Association launched its Vaccinate4All campaign with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Johnson & Johnson, and Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) to help reduce vaccine hesitancy, build vaccine confidence, and address structural and cultural barriers to COVID-19 vaccine access in Latino communities.  

Vaccinate4All in the News

Why is VaccinateForAll important?
The health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been detrimental to Latino communities. Research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals that as of June 17, 2021, Hispanics and Latinos are twice as likely to contract COVID-19 than their non-Hispanic white counterparts, as well as 2.8 times more likely to be hospitalized from COVID-19 and 2.3 times more likely to die from COVID-19.¹

Despite calls for nationwide vaccinations, many communities of color remain uncertain about vaccines and lack trust in medical institutions.

Vaccinate4All works to overcome this by arming individual physicians, health professional associations, and other leaders with educational resources about the COVID-19 vaccines in order to increase vaccination accessibility and uptake among the Latino community.

What is a VaccinateForAll Champion?
Vaccinate4All Champions are individuals and organizations committed to providing Latinos with resources and support that encourage and increase COVID-19 vaccination participation. Acting as trusted messengers in their communities, Vaccinate4All Champions build confidence by addressing concerns, dispelling myths, and promoting access to vaccination opportunities.

Individual Champions, such as health professionals and community leaders, will serve as ambassadors supporting the work of the campaign by sharing NHMA’s messages on social media, filming and submitting short educational PSA videos, serving as trusted thought leaders in their community, speaking at NHMA events, and participating in local vaccination efforts. Learn more about Vaccinate4All Champions.

Organizational Champions will work in collaboration with NHMA to share resources, amplify Vaccinate4All materials and events, as well as notify and seek ways to partner on co-branded vaccination efforts (virtual and in-person). Learn more about Vaccinate4All Champions.

Vaccinate4All Activities & Opportunities

NHMA Leadership Fellowship 

  • The NHMA Leadership Fellowship is a training program for mid-career physicians with significant leadership experience who are committed to the work of improving public health. Fellows will participate in a weekly training facilitated by a Core Faculty team from August 2021 through October 2021 every Friday and present policy papers at NHMA’s 2022 Annual Conference in March 2022. These weekly-Friday afternoon webinars will consist of public health speakers with panels ranging from media, advocacy, and how to work with different stakeholders in the public health arena to address health disparities in the Hispanic community.

  • A 5-day retreat in DC is required the first week of February as part of the Leadership Fellowship program. During this week, seminars will be held and fellows will be meeting with the White House, HHS, OMH, and their Congressional representative to discuss public health initiatives that benefit their Hispanic constituency.

  • As part of this fellowship, you will have the opportunity to serve in a national campaign sponsored by the CDC and Johnson & Johnson as an individual Vaccinate4all Champion. This fellowship is a no-cost opportunity sponsored by the CDC to equip physicians with the tools needed to become impactful advocates and bring meaningful change within the Latino population on national and local levels.

#Vaccinate4All Toolkit

  • The Vaccinate4All social media toolkit will include digital resources and assets that can be used to disseminate and amplify this campaign into communities most at-risk.

Hispanic Health Portal

  • NHMA will develop a COVID-19 Resource Hub on its Hispanic Health Portal to house credible, easily-accessible information on the most prominent and pressing medical issues facing Hispanic populations. This resource hub will also welcome resource-sharing from other mission-driven organizations committed to improving health literacy and increasing COVID-19 vaccinations in underrepresented communities.
