The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) announces the availability of administrative supplements for the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) (R25) grantees to develop educational resources to address SARS-CoV-2 vaccine hesitancy.  Vaccinating the US population with SARS-CoV-2 vaccines is the key to control the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the nation. However, a significant number of Americans, including those in medically underserved communities, have questions about vaccination. The goal of this NOSI is to support SEPA grantees in the development of SARS-CoV-2 resources, specifically related to the educational interventions of their SEPA projects, that will address key issues related to vaccine hesitancy and increase vaccine acceptance in the US.
