How Vermont Is Winning the COVID Vaccination War

A centralized communication and record keeping system, along with ensuring convenience for the largely rural population, led Vermont to the highest COVID-19 vaccination rate nationwide. The centralized system keeps track of data and provides consistent guidance. Trusted messengers, like first responders, local pharmacists, and nonprofits like the Association of Africans Living in Vermont, provide culturally competent information that eases hesitancy. Along with mass-vaccination events, house calls and pop-up clinics at small businesses and local events made getting vaccinated convenient and comfortable.
