Communities for Immunity: Round Two awards to 50 more museums and libraries to promote vaccine confidence

Communities for Immunity is an initiative supporting the work of museums and libraries in engaging their communities in COVID-19 vaccine confidence.

Administered by the Association of Science and Technology Centers in partnership with the American Alliance of Museums and the Network of the National Library of Medicine, and with the support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Communities for Immunity supplied funding to museums and libraries across the United States during in 2021–2022 to support vaccine confidence at the local level. Efforts included sharing information and connecting communities with opportunities to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

In addition, Communities for Immunity supplied museums and libraries with resources and support, including a Community of Practice, to complete this critical vaccine confidence work.


“Museums and libraries are the vaults that hold our knowledge and history. They educate us on the discoveries and blunders of our past. That’s the foundation upon which Communities for Immunity will equip the American people with accurate, reliable, science-based information. This partnership comes at a crucial time. We need more trusted messengers who let science lead, as they help Americans make informed health decisions for our families.”
