UAB’s Center for Emerging Infections and Emergency Preparedness (CEIEP) is making available $35,000 to support an intervention capable of increasing influenza vaccine rates across campus.

The intervention is expected to measure the effectiveness of various strategies designed to increase population-specific vaccine rates and reach the diverse campus population, says Joel Rodgers, program manager of the CEIEP.

Proposals jointly submitted by investigators from multiple schools or departments are preferred and inclusion of graduate student assistance is encouraged. The full application is due Friday, Aug. 18.
