Starting Vaccine Conversations


Categorization: CEAL - Vaccine Ambassadors

Year: 2021

Aim: Vaccine Ambassadors aimed to recruit unvaccinated members of recently vaccinated individuals’ social groups for vaccination.

Outcome: To accomplish this, community members who just received a vaccine at a given site are asked to receive a holder with conversation cards geared towards starting a conversation with members of their social network. This holder includes between 10-15 conversation cards and serves as a protective sleeve for the vaccinated individual’s new proof of vaccination card. To date, over 8,000 holders with cards have been distributed to St. Louis residents.


Key Team Members: Penina Acayo Laker, Kaitlyn Stansbury, Sasha Kostenko

Connections: This project partnered with the St. Louis City and St. Louis County Departments of Health to get connected with vaccination clinics occurring in their respective areas.
