The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians is proud to announce that we are the physician group leading the charge to increase flu vaccine rates in Georgia for the 2023-2024 season. Our focus will be on communities of color and overcoming longstanding barriers.

Barriers may result from:

  • Cultural issues/belief systems
  • Socioeconomic conditions
  • Geographic conditions: Rural vs. Urban
  • Racial and or Ethnic Conditions

We are recruiting all clinicians who are connected to communities of color (whether you are a vaccination site or not) to join our efforts to connect with our patients on their path to one of the standards of primary care – the annual flu shot.

πŸ’‰ Breaking Barriers is HARD…….

πŸ’‰ Practice humility

πŸ’‰ Stay open to learning.

πŸ’‰ Question discomfort and lean into it.
