Strengthening Vaccine Efforts in Indian Country: Results from a National COVID-19 Vaccination Survey

March 12, 2021

Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI) conducted a survey with 1,435 American Indians and Alaska Natives across the United States, with participants representing 318 different tribes across 46 states. The survey asked 49 questions ranging from an individual’s willingness to receive a COVID-19 vaccine to the people they trusted most when making informed decisions.

The analyses and recommendations presented in "Strengthening Vaccine Efforts in Indian Country" can be used to inform the development and delivery of culturally attuned COVID-19 vaccination campaigns, education materials, and programs tailored to American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
