Crucial Vaccination Conversations: A Roadmap to Engage Women and Their Communities

Improved immunization rates can assist in reducing disparities in health care and disease across all age groups.  

Vaccines are an important measure to promote family and public health by slowing, and sometimes preventing, the spread of infectious and dangerous diseases. Through sound research efforts, immunizations have been developed for implementation throughout the life-course. 

SWHR’s roadmap is designed to to guide community program planners as they engage women and their families in meaningful conversations and initiatives to improve individual and public health through vaccinations. 

Inspired by insights from an Immunization Education Working Group of public health researchers and professionals, community leaders, patient advocates, and health care providers convened by SWHR, the roadmap is a guidance document that can be utilized when developing immunization education outreach programs. This document is intended to be useful to any individual or group working in the vaccination campaign space. While this roadmap was created with special consideration for reaching women, the questions, templates, and guidance provided can be adapted for a diversity of target populations and objectives.
