Our Work

Every Visit is a Vaccine Visit

The Every Visit is a Vaccine Visit (EV3) project is a program designed to promote vaccine confidence messaging to help guide parent and caregiver vaccine decision-making, improve access to vaccination services for school-aged children, and improve access to immunization education opportunities for healthcare professionals in underserved areas.


Through generous funding support from the Carolina Centers for Medical Excellence (CCME) Foundation, the South Carolina Vaccine Equity Workgroup (VEW) will pursue this multi-pronged approach in Cherokee, Chesterfield, Jasper, and Lancaster counties for the 2022-23 project year.

The SC Vaccine Equity Workgroup (VEW) is comprised of partner leaders and professionals from a variety of industries, including SC Office of Rural Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Prisma Health, MUSC, Hope Health, SC Cooperative, and SC DHEC VFC (Vaccines for Children) program.


The VEW has three key goals:

  1. identify specific pediatric populations with low vaccination rates,

  2. investigate and define the contributing factors to low vaccination rates in those areas, and

  3. identify tailored strategies to address those factors in targeted areas.


This workgroup serves as a project steering committee for the implementation of the coalition's Every Visit is a Vaccine Visit program. 

Project INVEST

INVEST (INcreasing VaccinE uptake among Southern Teens) is a school-based program to reduce rural-urban disparities in HPV vaccination. This program was developed by researchers at the University of South Carolina and Duke University, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and can be customized to the needs of your school or school district.
