Purpose of Position

The Nurse Advocacy Center for the Underserved’s ( NACU ) mission is to improve the health of the underserved of Northern Kentucky by reducing health disparities. Due to the health disparities that exist, it is important to provide greater equity and access to vaccination education, outreach, and community engagement.

The overall aim of the Kentucky Department for Public Health grant project “Promoting Immunizations in the Underserved Populations of NKY Through NACU” is to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate the project using CDC’s “partnering for Vaccine Equity” program.

The immunization team will consist of two registered nurses (part-time), one community health worker/vaccine ambassador (full time) plus 50% of an existing NACU RN’s time to implement the plan. The immunization outreach workplan is required.

Primary Responsibilities
  • Assist Immunization Outreach RN in assessing the NKY community for possible immunization outreach opportunities for the underserved population of Boone, Campbell, Kenton, and Grant counties.
  • Assist Immunization Outreach RN in assessing NKY community partners willing to collaborate on outreach events for the project.
  • Assist Immunization Outreach RN in hosting weekly immunization events throughout NKY in collaboration with community partners.
  • Provide weekly educational campaigns to increase immunization awareness through NACU clinics and community events.
  • Attend assigned immunization training through national, state ( KDPH ), and local Northern Kentucky Health Department trainings.
  • Assist in ordering supplies for outreach events through assigned NKU staff, keep track of inventory, immunization supply, retrieving supplies from NKU campus and delivering supplies to all NACU sites.
  • Provide clerical support to the Immunization Outreach team, as assigned, using the Kentucky Immunization Reporting System and other appropriate systems.
  • Assist in developing marketing material for outreach events in person, online, and through social media to mitigate vaccine misinformation.
  • Assist in completing monthly documentation of outreach activities per grant requirements.
  • Create a database for tracking outreach events and community partners.
