Immunization Grantees

Congratulations PAIC/PAAAP 2021-2022 Immunization Awardees! 

PAAAP and PAIC will be supporting access and education vaccine activities for all Pennsylvanians by awarding mini-grants to our local immunization coalitions and our valuable partner organizations. The awardees listed below will perform activities aiming to increase immunization access and education of all lifespan vaccines across our Commonwealth! See map above of reach of these efforts. 

The Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (PA AAP) and the Pennsylvania Immunization Coalition (PAIC) have awarded 16 state and local organizations and immunization coalitions with grants to address access to and education around vaccines, particularly the COVID-19 vaccine. Driven by current data surrounding COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths as well as anti-vaccine rhetoric circulating in communities, the PA AAP and PAIC designed the grant to address equity, engagement, access and resource barriers related to communities’ vaccine uptake, or lack thereof.

Of the 20 applications received after promotion across various provider and health networks, the following 16 groups were awarded funding up to $100,000: Allegheny County Immunization Coalition, Berks County Immunization Coalition, Bucks County Immunization Coalition, Chester County Immunization Coalition, Crawford Health Improvement Coalition, Delaware Immunization Coalition, Lancaster County Immunization Coalition, Montgomery County Immunization Coalition, Schuylkill County Immunization Coalition, Tioga County Immunization Workgroup, ACLAMO, Blue Prints/WIC, Duquesne University – Dr. Khlood Salman, PA Polio Survivors Network, Vaccine Education Center – CHOP and the Medical Reserve Corps. 

Grant funds will be utilized for an array of efforts, including but not limited to facilitating direct community outreach through educational campaigns and activities, build local capacity by hiringterm-limited staff to conduct communications or program-related work, generating one-on-one or small group engagement for health education and address vaccine questions and organizing pop-up or targeted immunization clinics.
