Adult Immunization Seed Grants

In 2012, NBCH launched the Adult Immunization Seed Grant Program in generous partnership with GlaxoSmithKline. The Seed Grants will provide coalitions the resources to drive innovative, community-focused adult immunization initiatives within the workplace. Assuming compliance with all federal and state laws, activities may:

  • Provide adult immunization educational information derived from CDCís immunization schedule;
  • Strengthen and support adult immunization infrastructure;
  • Focus on advancing the employer/employee knowledge level of vaccine preventable diseases;
  • Advance awareness and understanding of the role of adult immunizations in employer focused prevention efforts;
  • Focus on systemic, sustainable, achievable, and measurable change related to adult immunization;
  • Identify, measure, and remove barriers to access for adult immunization; and
  • Build upon and/or collaborate with existing local community adult immunization initiatives.

NBCH awarded $120,000 to four member coalitions to support Adult Immunization efforts within their communities. This seed grant program is ongoing.

Per GlaxoSmithKline guidelines, grant money awarded through these seed grants cannot be used to directly purchase vaccines; promote products by name; or pay health care practitioners.
