The discussion will cover successes and challenges of vaccination programs in Indian Country and share data from the American Covid-19 Vaccine Poll, a national survey focused on overcoming obstacles to full and equitable vaccination coverage. The program will also discuss pathways to overcome remaining vaccine hesitancy in Native communities.
