Improving Immunization with People Experiencing Homelessness
There are so many barriers to effective and appropriate immunization services for people experiencing homelessness — poverty, mistrust, unstable housing, and competing mental and physical health concerns are just a few of those challenges. Over the past two years, Toronto’s Inner City Health Associates delivered more than 6,000 COVID vaccines to some of city’s most marginalized residents and continues to deliver first doses to this day.
In the CVPD’s March seminar, Dr. Aaron Orkin and Sara Maria Daou will explore the strengths and challenges of two elements in our immunization strategy: peer health ambassadors and cash incentives.
