Welcome to the American Academy of Pediatrics Vermont Chapter

The American Academy of Pediatrics Vermont Chapter (AAPVT) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the physical, mental, and social health and well-being of the state’s infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. AAPVT works to achieve these goals by using the collective voice of Vermont’s pediatricians to improve the lives of Vermont’s youth through public education, research, child advocacy and policy development.

AAPVT Now Accepting Grant Applications for Flu & COVID Vaccine Clinics

The American Academy of Pediatrics Vermont Chapter, in collaboration with the Department of Health’s Immunization Program, is providing funding to support expanded influenza and/or COVID vaccination by healthcare practitioners or organizations. In an effort to decrease the incidence of disease throughout the state of Vermont, healthcare practitioners are encouraged to offer expanded services to increase influenza and/or COVID vaccine coverage, including, but not limited to, longer or designated hours, off-site clinics, or additional staffing.

Scope of Grant - Providing Support for Influenza Vaccination Clinics

It is the intent of this grant to provide support for health care practices/organizations to:

  1. assess barriers to pediatric COVID-19 and/or seasonal influenza vaccinations in the communities served by the recipient and in collaboration with community organizations.
  2. implement COVID-19 and/or seasonal influenza vaccination clinics in communities to address identified barriers. Emphasis should be placed on offering vaccination clinics specifically to high-risk populations or those with limited access (e.g. assisting living communities, senior housing, schools, children under the age of 18 and their care givers).
  3. expand access to COVID-19 and/or seasonal influenza vaccination at primary care practices through patient outreach, vaccine promotion, and expansion of vaccination services.
  4. offer off-site, weekend, and after-hours COVID-19 and/or seasonal influenza vaccination clinics at selected locations to meet the need(s) of the community served (e.g. schools, shelters, meal sites, etc.)

Health Care Practices/Organizations may receive $1000 per clinic held (up to a maximum of $5000 total). Applications may include clinics held retrospectively starting September 1st.  Applications will be reviewed on receipt and funds will be distributed upon receipt of final project report.  Applications must be received by November 19th, 2021.  Immunization clinics that are part of this grant must be held and reported on by March 31, 2022.
