Agricultural, fishing, and forestry (AgFF) workers are an essential part of the United States workforce, and protecting these essential workers is important to promoting health equity and avoiding a disruption in our food system. A team of experts from different CDC/NIOSH Agricultural Safety and Health Centers explored knowledge and perceptions regarding the COVID-19 vaccine to inform vaccination efforts among AgFF workers and promote vaccine confidence among employers and workers. On August 25 at 1 p.m. Eastern, four of the team members will present key findings from their research as well as results from a follow-up survey aimed at identifying the impacts of COVID-19 on Extension personnel, and the attitudes and perceptions that this audience held about the vaccine.
