Who Are Vaccine Ambassadors?
- Vaccine Ambassadors are people who promote vaccine education, acceptance, and uptake in their local communities.
- Ambassadors are most effective when they are trusted community members who share health beliefs and practices with their peers.
- Ambassadors may be health professionals, community health workers, health educators, social workers, and trained community members.
This resource provides 10 tips to start a Vaccine Ambassador Program at a Community Health Center. The tips were developed from lessons learned in the Community Vaccine Ambassador Project, a project that ran from November 2021 to December 2022 and was run by the CDC, in partnership with the National Health Care for the Homeless Council and NACHC.
