The White House and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) are eager to partner with camps around the country to improve vaccination rates among staff and campers this summer.
The White House and HHS urge camps to conduct outreach to parents and staff now and to encourage themselves and their children vaccinated before coming to camp.
In addition, last week, HHS released an "On Site Vaccination Toolkit," aimed at helping community organizations and employers work directly with vaccine providers to set up vaccination clinics.
The White House and HHS encourage camps to consider setting up vaccine clinics on site to help staff and eligible campers (ages 12+) get access to the vaccine.
HHS and its pharmacy partners are happy to work with camps to address specific logistical concerns as they arise.
Jonathan Warsh, PhD, Senior Policy Advisor from the DHHS COVID-19 Response Team, and Mary C. Wall, EdLD, from the White House COVID-19 Response Team will be providing a presentation on opportunities for on-site vaccine clinics for day and overnight camps at the beginning of the ACA, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Association of Camp Nursing Town Hall on Thursday, June 10.
