This proposal seeks to enhance uptake and completion of COVID-19 vaccination among African American and Latinx public housing residents in South Los Angeles. Given the multiple disparities experienced by public housing residents, the investigators will utilize a theoretically-based, multidisciplinary and culturally tailored intervention to provide education at multiple levels and implement innovate strategies to engage this population in the uptake of COVID-19 vaccination.


One particular group, African American and Latinx public housing residents, are facing adverse effects related to worsening social determinants and health disparities. Utilizing a community-driven approach, the overall objective of this proposed study is to increase COVID-19 vaccine uptake and completion the impact of COVID-19 among African American and Latinx public housing residents. Guided by the Community Based Participatory Model, the Information, Motivation, and Behavioral Skills (IMB) and the Transtheoretical Model will be utilized to carry out this intervention. Through this innovative program, we will establish Academic-Community Team for Improving Vaccine Acceptability and Targeted Engagement (ACTIVATE) program, which will develop leadership triads of public housing resident leaders, nurse practitioner students, and public health students to carry out this multilevel intervention.
