Resource Summary: Across the country, health centers and other community-based providers are tasked with supporting large scale COVID-19 vaccine rollouts for their patients and communities. This demand has expanded the workload of providers, staff, and volunteers. The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium, Public Health Management Corporation, and the Philadelphia Department of Health formed an innovative partnership to address this need by deploying AmeriCorps members to assist with vaccine delivery. Watch while staff from each of these organizations discuss promising practices from this model, and ways to ensure that primary care staff, providers, and community-based organizations can elicit support from available local, state, and national resources.
