15th National Conference for Immunization Coalitions and Partnerships

September 13-15, 2022 • Minneapolis MN

The 15th National Conference for Immunization Coalitions and Partnerships (NCICP), formerly known as the National Conference on Immunization and Health Coalitions, is the only conference solely dedicated to collaboration and partnership as a way to improve immunization uptake, educate our communities, and prevent the spread of disease. The conference is an engine to improve immunizations and public health issues by sharing successful strategies that strengthen the work our coalitions and partnerships do.

The 15th NCICP will focus on fostering equity, building partnerships, and promoting vaccine confidence. The conference will be built into three conference tracks:

Sustainability

During COVID-19, many coalitions received additional federal or state funds for vaccine activities and nearly every community saw new groups willing to help increase vaccine confidence and access. As we move out of the immediate pandemic, how can coalitions maintain their funding, expand their partnerships, and keep new partners at the table? NCICP is welcoming abstracts on these and other topics that will ensure the sustainability of immunization coalitions for years to come.

Community Engagement

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in an unprecedented level of research on which messages and messengers increase a person’s intent to vaccinate. Unfortunately, the politicization of the pandemic also lead to an increase in those who are staunchly opposed to vaccination. NCICP is welcoming abstracts that address vaccine hesitancy, confidence, and the wide spectrum of communication needs in between, with a particular interest in topics that address the effectiveness of trusted messengers and channels.

Policy & Advocacy

Vaccines have long enjoyed bipartisan, bicameral support. In recent years, however, universal political support for vaccines has declined, particularly among the states. The U.S. is at a critical juncture in which federal and state policy could make or break better access to, and confidence in, vaccinations. NCICP is welcoming abstracts on the policies and advocacy efforts necessary to ensure everyone in the U.S. has the ability to remain safe from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Submit an abstract to present during a breakout session in one of the above tracks. Abstract submissions are due on June 1, 2022.
