November 8, 2021 –
On behalf of the White House COVID-19 Response Team and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, I am pleased to invite you to a virtual conversation on Increasing COVID-19 Vaccination Rates in the Medicaid Community. The event is on Monday, November 8, from 3:00 – 4:00 PM ET.
Nationwide, Medicaid vaccination rates lag behind that of the general population. In line with our shared goal of continuing to protect the most vulnerable among us, it is critical that we all prioritize improving vaccine uptake in this population. To that end, this event will highlight the innovative approaches different states and Medicaid plans are implementing to increase vaccinations in the Medicaid community. Attendees will hear from state Medicaid Directors and health plan leaders across the country on these best practices. The event will also cover federal policy changes and strategies CMS recommends states and plans act on to boost Medicaid vaccination rates.
Please see information for how to join the event below. We look forward to seeing you there.
