Jhpiego has partnered with the Baltimore City Health Department (BCHD) to staff and train their COVID-19 Mobile Vaccine workforce. Focusing on vaccine equity, Jhpiego and the BCHD are committed to focused, culturally responsive outreach to ensure access to and acceptance of COVID-19 vaccine by all Baltimoreans through strategic implementation of mobile vaccine clinics. The COVID-19 Mobile Vaccine program engages Baltimore City community members, ambassadors, and leaders to bring culturally responsive COVID-19 vaccine to priority populations through mobile clinics while also working to address vaccine acceptance and uptake among these groups throughout Baltimore.

The Baltimore City COVID-19 Training Coordinator will coordinate training and education for VALUE (Vaccine Access and Acceptance Lives in Unity, Education and Engagement) Communities and Mobile Vaccine team members, including Community Health Workers, for the successful delivery of mobile vaccine clinics that aim to reach specific populations within Baltimore. The VALUE Community Team aims to ensure equitable COVID-19 vaccine distribution across Baltimore, increasing access to and acceptance of the COVID-19 vaccine to support the goal of 80% of Baltimoreans vaccinated by February 2022, many of whom will be reached through mobile vaccination clinics. The Training Coordinator will work closely with VALUE Communities Workgroup Leads and the Mobile Vaccine Team, and will coordinate the delivery of trainings to Community Health Workers, clinical and pharmacy partners, senior housing and assisted living facilities, homeless shelters and organizations supporting people who experience homelessness, persons living with disabilities, and other Baltimore City partners supporting COVID-19 vaccine distribution to VALUE Communities populations. Under the supervision of Jhpiego and the Baltimore City Health Department, the Training Coordinator will manage and deliver COVID-19 related trainings and provide resources to the VALUE Community partners and mobile vaccine clinic staff. The Training Coordinator is expected to establish and maintain excellent relationships with counterparts, community members, and other stakeholders in the COVID-19 response in Baltimore City. This position will assist with the implementation of mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinics for VALUE communities, focused initially on older adult and homeless populations and rolling out to other populations as vaccine eligibility criteria expands.
