Few unvaccinated adults admitted to obtaining information about the vaccines from their respective health care providers as of April 2021. Health care providers are in pole position to address these concerns and potentially help increase vaccine uptake.
Researchers focused on adults who reported they were eligible for a vaccine, but they had not tried to get one.
To increase vaccination rates and reduce racial and ethnic gaps in COVID-19 vaccine uptake, trusted community resources, such as pharmacists, faith leaders, and local organizations, can help reach adults disconnected from the health care system and slow the transmission of the virus.
