Our program has launched a flu vaccination campaign for the 2020-2021 influenza virus season.

Overall Goals  

  • To ensure access to vaccination for Multnomah County’s Black and African immigrant/refugee populations. 

  • To equip influential Black/African immigrant and refugee messengers as educated and empowered “trusted voices” in the community to support vaccine education and delivery; utilizing the principles of the theory of planned behavior.

  • To provide timely and accurate public information about influenza and influenza vaccine to Multnomah County’s African American and African immigrant/refugee communities in order to slow rates of infection in  Multnomah County. 

  • To increase influenza vaccination opportunities & enhance provider partnerships: Increase number, range, and diversity of opportunities to receive vaccinations and develop partnerships to encourage behavior change in providers or health care staff.

  • To make use of public health authority status and exercise the influence that the Health Department has to promote, protect and assure the health and well-being of our community.
