COVID-19 Vaccine Patient Education: Addressing Vaccine Hesitancy

Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG) supports the global healthcare community’s independent initiatives (e.g., research, quality improvement, or education) to improve patient outcomes in areas of unmet medical need that are aligned with Pfizer’s medical and/or scientific strategies. Pfizer’s GMG competitive grant program involves a publicly posted general Request for Proposal (RFP) that provides detail regarding a general area of interest, sets timelines for review and approval, and uses an internal Pfizer review process to make final grant decisions. Organizations are invited to submit an application addressing the knowledge gaps as outlined in the specific RFP.

Through this RFP it is our intent to support patient education programs designed to increase the understanding and familiarity with COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination among the general population. Of particular interest are educational programs that focus on reaching the medically underserved and other under-immunized populations including those in both rural and urban settings.

All activity types will be considered, though given the current circumstances, virtual and digital activities will be prioritized. This includes applications to repurpose existing educational resources into easy-to-use and easy-to-access delivery formats (e.g. mobile apps.) We will also consider applications repurposing education or training resources that currently exist in one language but could be modified and translated to other languages and rolled out in different geographies.
