Types of Activities

Funds can be used for expenses directly related to outreach, education and/or vaccine access activities that address youth and/or caregiver hesitancy and concerns about the vaccine as well as logistical barriers to youth getting the vaccine. The following are examples of activities the funds can be used to support:

One-on-one or small group health education and vaccine trust building engagement with youth and/or caregivers, including peer-to-peer youth leadership and advocacy and caregiver-targeted engagement activities in trusted spaces such as schools, faith-based organizations, clinics, community-based youth centers, other youth-centered spaces and events (such as back-to-school events, youth groups, enrichment and/or athletic programs, etc.).
Youth-led education and will-building campaigns using culturally appropriate messaging and media platforms through digital and non-digital channels best suited for different communities.
Low-barrier vaccine access such as pop-up or targeted immunization clinics (including mobile clinics) in trusted spaces such as schools, faith-based organizations, clinics, community-based youth centers, other youth-centered spaces and events (such as back-to-school events, concerts, festivals, etc.). Clinics targeting youth may also reach family members and others needing vaccination.
Creative use of incentives, contests, and other strategies to motivate youth vaccination, including those designed and led by youth.
Supportive services to reduce barriers to vaccine clinics including transportation assistance, translation and interpretation, scheduling assistance for those without digital access and other supports identified at the community level.
Other innovative and best practice strategies that support youth having access to the vaccine. They are open to your ideas!
