The objectives of the SWHR Immunization Education Roundtable are to:
- Review the public health landscape concerning vaccination recommendations and implementation and explore the best means to increase public education and strategies for increased uptake through women;
- Identify knowledge gaps, unmet patient needs, and relevant policies that present barriers to access, health equity, and vaccine confidence, particularly among minority, underserved, and rural communities;
- Curate science-based information to address low uptake, vaccine hesitancy, and build public trust in the safety of vaccines; and
- Develop culturally appropriate materials to expand education and raise awareness about the public health benefits of vaccinations for individuals across the lifespan.
