Reach Vaccine Hesitant Populations with New ACEP Tools

For emergency physicians who may encounter patients and family members who are vaccine hesitant, ACEP has developed some resources to help you begin a dialogue.  

ACEP’s Diversity and Inclusion Section created a poster to place in your waiting areas that encourages talking to the emergency physicians about any vaccine-related questions and includes a QR code to the national vaccine finder.

They have also created a flyer for you to share with patients and family members that directly addresses some common concerns and questions held by those who are hesitant to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

 

 

 

Find even more patient resources at ACEP’s public website – emergencyphysicians.org/COVIDvaccineInfo

There are also Smart Phrases available to copy and paste into your hospital's electronic health records (EHR) system to automatically create content related to COVID-19 vaccines in multiple languages on the patient’s discharge papers.
