Vaccine Superhub Work Plan Abstract: In this Vaccine Superhub project, we will strengthen outreach to the disability community in the Southeast about CDC-recommended vaccines by doing the following: • Strengthening relationships with a broader coalition of local champions • Strengthening the capacity for dissemination via social media and online resources • Developing a digital plain language fact sheet/infographic for CDC-recommended annual vaccines • Adding Deep Canvassing Learning principles to our Motivational Interviewing Module to be utilized by disability advocacy group leaders and local champions nationwide about how to engage with others who may have differing opinions about vaccines • Producing four podcasts featuring people with IDD, caregivers/parent, service providers, and medical experts about the value of vaccines for people with disabilities Work Plan: Add Deep Canvassing Learning principles to our Motivational Interviewing Module to be utilized by disability advocacy group leaders and local champions nationwide about how to engage with others who may have differing opinions about vaccines. The revised Module will provide guidance on how to engage in motivational interviewing and develop unique interpersonal and innovative strategies using the strategies discussed during our highly impactful deep canvassing webinar with Andrew Myers and Jeff Gutierrez from the University of Montana.
