Project HEALINGS information: What are vaccines? 

 

Contents


OpenBeam.Net has been a part of the state-wide Project HEALINGS (Health Education and Adult Learning Incorporated with Navigating Government Systems) since 2021.

 
Project HEALINGS was created as a HUB to improve health and wellness of the Minnesotans, who may be disenfranchised by identity and circumstances, who are facing disparities in both healthcare access and health outcomes, and are impacted disproportionately by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We feel one of the barriers particularly for our Limited English Proficiency (LEP) immigrants and refugees is to explain the basic scientific information in a simple but comprehensive way along with the cultural implications of our communities, so these health information can be discussed widely, like at LEP members’ dinner tables, etc.. But since we are in constant emergency mode with the pandemic, many of the messages have become, “Go Get Tested," "Go Get Vaccinated,“ very direct information without much context provided to our communities.

With new case numbers trending down, we should start to allocate more resources to support health literacy, like the basic information to explain what are vaccines, how vaccines are created and approved by FDA, or how COVID-19 virus mutated, along with cultural and social determinants which may impact on high rate COVID-19 infections among BIPOC communities.

Therefore, we are helping to publicize a series of 6 educational articles to mitigate the vaccination myths. We look to build a collective process to engage LEP members in broadening the health literacy context with better framework in order to mitigate another crisis like this pandemic in the future.

Following is our 1st article – "What are vaccines?" We welcome your feedback to better engage with everyone and intentionally build a solution for a complex layer of challenges around health and LEP communities' vaccination hesitancy, in order to peel away the layers of mistrust and much more.

    • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
    • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
    • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

    While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

    This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

    Definitions
    The following defines the various project phases:

    3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
    4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
      demonstration
