May 19, 2021. Modelling highlights disparities and charts paths to unlocking more equitable COVID-19 vaccination for disadvantaged populations within states and across the US.
That was the key takeaway from an April 28th New Frontiers in Health Equity & Precision Population Health Seminar hosted by the Center for Population Health Sciences (PHS) and featuring Marissa Reitsma, a PhD Student in Health Policy and a Knight-Hennessy Scholar.
Reitsma and colleagues working in the SC-COSMO Modeling Consortium (including PhD graduate Anneke Claypool, and faculty project leads Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert and Joshua Salomon) and the Stanford Prevention Policy Modeling Lab developed a model for assessing the effectiveness of different COVID-19 vaccination strategies on vaccine coverage and uptake for disadvantaged populations.
Study contributor Anneke Claypool is a 2017 SIGF Fellow.
