COVImm: Vaccination in a Pandemic

In the COVImm project, our team has been exploring immunization in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, we’ve been examining the impact of the pandemic on routine vaccine programs, and the acceptability, access, uptake, and equity of COVID-19 vaccine programs. This national study uses three complementary approaches: (1) an environmental scan of public health leaders and vaccine policy and programs, (2) a cross-sectional survey of the public and healthcare providers; and (3) analysis of administrative data in three diverse Canadian provinces.

To further explore the perspectives of equity-seeking groups and healthcare providers, our team is using qualitative methods to assess COVID-19 vaccine influencers, barriers, and enablers in these populations.
