This new job aid for COVID-19 vaccination implementers was developed as part of the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator’s Country Readiness and Delivery (CRaD) workstream. The resource shares common COVID-19 vaccine introduction challenges and corresponding potential solutions. The content is presented in three thematic areas reflecting the most frequently reported subjects: communications and social mobilization; reporting and monitoring; and supply and logistics.
This data was collected through a series of interactive webinars and a survey of country level vaccination workforce across all WHO regions conducted in March 2021. We are grateful to all the immunization professionals who took time to respond to the survey. Locally identified solutions were synthesized from the survey responses submitted by health workers. They are offered in the spirit of facilitating peer-to-peer learning, but do not imply respective endorsement by that nation’s ministry of health. Additional suggestions from global experts have also been incorporated. Persistent gaps in operational solutions are also flagged.
Additional WHO resources are included in the job aid. As countries proceed with further implementation of their COVID-19 programmes, more in-depth lessons will be discovered and shared through WHO-supported intra-action reviews (IARs), COVID-19 post implementation evaluations (cPIES), and other appropriate methods.
