G6: Partnerships: A Key Component in Delivery of Community-Based Influenza Vaccination Campaigns

Since many persons for whom influenza vaccine is recommended do not have a regular source of health care (or choose not to access their regular source of care to receive vaccinations), accessible, affordable and convenient alternatives may be required to meet the needs of the entire community. Workshop presenters will offer overviews of their experiences while collaborating with various partners to plan and implement community-based influenza vaccination campaigns in their respective locales.
Learning Objectives: Following this session, participants should be able to describe steps necessary to form effective partnerships that can support delivery of influenza vaccine in community-based clinics.
