Identification of Homebound Populations
Individuals that are homebound present unique challenges to ensure they will be equitably vaccinated. Examples may include limited personal mobility, visual or auditory impairment, decreased emotional and social support or multiple co-morbidities. The student will work with their supervisor to collect data on this topic and develop recommendations to remove barriers for the homebound.
