SAHM Local Public Health Demonstration Project Grants
Adolescent vaccination rates have improved but remain low compared to pediatric vaccination rates, so there is a need for further inquiry to better understand the barriers to vaccination in this population and how to effectively deliver preventive services such as vaccination to them. Adolescent vaccination coverage varies widely among states and local areas. For multidose vaccination regimens, series-completion rates are often insufficient. Clinicians face many challenges to initiating and completing vaccine series. Further, health inequities continue to exist by race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.
The Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine (SAHM) solicited proposals for innovative local public health demonstration projects that will improve our understanding of adolescent vaccination and ultimately lead to interventions to increase vaccination rates in the adolescent population.
The submission period for this grant program has closed.
