This group is an opportunity for health care workers engaged in vaccination programs to share challenges, approaches, successes and information within the current covid context. Continued engagement of communities with routine vaccine programs have been greatly challenged within the current Covid-19 context. Communities have been locked down to manage the spread of SARS-CoV-2 , incomes have been threatened or lost, access and equity to health services have been limited, transportation has been diminished, trust in the effectiveness of vaccines have been questioned, and vaccination programs have either been paused or limited. The challenges for health care workers administering or advocating for routine vaccinations have increased as they have managed the requirements of the vaccination program alongside additional responsibilities related to Covid-19 and rolling out covid specific vaccines. Within this context there have been new approaches and creative responses to continuing to engage communities and communicate the importance of vaccinations for the health of the broader community.
