Immunize Colorado was awarded a new $100,000 grant from the Urban Institute as part of their national Boosting Vaccine Confidence and Coverage through Community-Based Organizations initiative. This funding is being passed through to Immunize Colorado as part of a larger CDC effort to expand vaccine confidence and access, by partnering and supporting national, state, and community-level agencies and organizations. The goal of the initiative is to increase confidence in and access to COVID-19 and influenza vaccination in racial and ethnic populations that are disproportionately affected and/or have low vaccination rates. As part of the award, Immunize Colorado will receive technical assistance and participate in a national learning collaborative that includes both group and peer learning.
