Ongoing Efforts in the Philadelphia Community
Leaders from Penn Medicine, Mercy Catholic Medical Center, and the Philadelphia community partnered on designing and running a series of community-based clinics that vaccinated almost 3,000 people in 3 Saturdays, 85 percent of whom were Black. The effort leveraged the strengths of each partner, enabling community COVID-19 vaccine ambassadorship and locating clinics in the heart of Black communities, the development of a no/low-tech hybrid automated text message and phone-based sign-up and intake platform, and the use of a rapid-cycle innovation approach that prioritized adaptable and scalable efficiency in a variety of community settings.
