Field Guide to Public Health Practice: Equity and Access - Distributing Vaccine during H1N1 (pdf, 407 KB)

This guide is about the hard work, connection to community, and creative ideas that public health planners used during the novel H1N1 pandemic to respond to vaccine access while placing health equity front and center in their daily decisions.

A problem-and-solution approach highlights 24 strategies put into practice by 23 jurisdictions to quickly establish mass vaccination sites, allocate vaccine during a shortage, or vaccinate specific groups. Stories and tools describe how agencies distributed H1N1 vaccine by developing creative staffing models, using school-based or mobile clinics, responding to changing community risk, and analyzing local supply and demand data.
