This opportunity is a Notice of Special Interest (NOSI)
for community-engaged research to evaluate strategies to facilitate vaccination uptake in clinical
and community contexts and address the barriers to
increasing reach, access, and uptake of vaccinations
among health disparity populations at high risk and
likely to experience vaccine hesitancy.
Key research questions include, include but are not
- What interventions and strategies are most effective
to increase the reach, access, acceptance, and vaccine
completion among populations that experience health
- How can evidence-based interventions that have
reduced vaccine hesitancy and increased both access and
uptake of other vaccinations be adapted and/or adopted to
increase the uptake of the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine?
- How can social media, digital marketing, and other
innovative technologies be integrated into vaccine
promotion interventions to identify and address the
sources of misinformation regarding vaccination?
- How can vaccine-related communications on
coronavirus, HPV, influenza, and other vaccines be
generated and promoted by clinicians and healthcare
systems to be community and culturally appropriate?
- What are effective culturally specific and/or
community competent approaches for reducing barriers and
increasing the vaccination uptake and completion?
- What service delivery or organizational level
policies are effective in facilitating broad vaccination
uptake and reducing barriers such as stigma, distrust,
fear, discrimination, and exposure to misinformation?
- What are effective dissemination and implementation
strategies related to vaccination in clinical and
- What rapid data collection methods can be used to
identify and prioritize vaccine interventions in
