Finger Lakes Rural Immunization Initiative

The Finger Lakes Rural Immunization Initiative is a one-year initiative, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to address low vaccination rates in rural areas. The program focuses on COVID-19 vaccine awareness, education, and increase in access for the 9-county Finger Lakes region of Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming and Yates.

Jeanine Wilder, program manager, works closely with community partners, physicians, local health departments and other collaborators to increase vaccine awareness, knowledge and acceptance of COVID-19 vaccine throughout the Finger Lakes.
