Beneath Our Skin Storytelling Project

Beneath Our Skin is a storytelling project for Black Vermonters. It is the result of a partnership with Clemmons Family Farm for an innovative approach to better understand the needs and perceptions on what will improve vaccination access and uptake among Vermonters who are Black/African American and/or of the African diaspora.  Beneath Our Skin uses digital storytelling and visual and performing arts as culturally relevant methods to gather and share stories from Black Vermonters about their vaccination choices and experiences.

TRANSCRIPT: GOVERNOR PHIL SCOTT DISCUSSES OVERDOSE AWARENESS DAY, START OF THE SCHOOL YEAR, VACCINES AND VERMONT DATA AT WEEKLY COVID-19 BRIEFING

Vermont Child Vaccine Program / Vermont Adult Vaccine Program

Vermont is a universal state, where the state Immunization Program purchases vaccines from the CDC federal contract at no cost to providers, for use in all children and adults. In order to receive vaccines, a provider practice must enroll in the Vermont Child Vaccine Program (VCVP) and/or Vermont Adult Vaccine Program (VAVP) programs. Vaccines are funded by the federal Vaccines for Children program, fees assessed on health insurers who cover Vermont lives, and limited discretionary federal 317 funding.

Vaccine Storage and Handling

Failure to store and handle vaccines properly can reduce vaccine potency, resulting in inadequate immune responses in patients and poor protection against disease. Patients lose confidence in vaccines and their providers when revaccination is necessary because the vaccine(s) they received may have been compromised (exposed to inappropriate conditions/temperatures or handled improperly).
