The “Addressing COVID-19 Vaccine concerns among people who are incarcerated” (ADVANCE) study is a participatory 'knowledge to action' project that aims to develop peer-to-peer education strategies with people who are incarcerated to promote COVID-19 vaccine confidence in BC’s provincial prisons. The main focus is to better understand: (a) the concerns that people incarcerated in BC provincial prisons have about COVID-19 vaccines, (b) the drivers underlying these concerns, and (c) the effectiveness of peer education strategies in addressing these concerns.
