The new Administration has stated that vaccinating the country is its first priority. To accomplish this will require reaching the communities hit hardest by COVID. The Administration announced its plans to enlist the help of America’s Health Centers by distributing 1 million COVID vaccinations across 250 FQHCs. Eventually, all health centers will be eligible to receive shipments. As health centers prepare to be part of this “all of government” effort, they might consider:
- Utilizing only medically qualified interpreters trained to answer patient questions about health centers’ COVID plans and to conduct outbound post vaccination follow up.
- Assistance from a team of medically qualified translators to help translate COVID resources like brochures and collateral.
NACHC’s business development affiliate, Community Health Ventures, partners with Language Services Associates (LSA) to assist health centers in developing and setting up these resources for patients.
