Pathways to increasing vaccination uptake in Native communities

Longstanding inequities, community factors, and federal underinvestment in Native American public health has caused disproportionate harm to Native American communities throughout the United States during the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, Native nations have undertaken effective vaccination campaigns, resulting in higher vaccination rates among Native populations than among other racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. However, the remaining unvaccinated often report negative experiences with health care systems and concerns about the vaccine’s safety. New data from the American COVID-19 Vaccine Poll suggests messaging that can be effective messaging to address those concerns. #covid-19 #vaccination #racialequity
