Department of Human Services (“DHS”) Grant
The purpose of this bill is to authorize the City of St. Louis, by and through the Department of Human Services (“DHS”), to accept a grant award from Washington University, Health Communication Research Laboratory, in the amount of $30,000.00 to cover expenses incurred in the Calling Older adult/disabled Participants to Ensure access to vaccines (COPE) program. DHS, through its St. Louis Area Agency on Aging (SLAAA) division, currently provides Home Delivered Meals to over 2,000 clients. Through COPE, each client will be called to ask about the services they receive, ask if they have been vaccinated, and if not, they will be asked if they would like to be added to the homebound vaccination program. COPE will assist recipients of the Home Delivered Meals with access to vaccines through the homebound vaccination program, providing transportation to vaccine clinics, or following-up with clients regarding vaccine questions. COPE will assist Washington University to fulfill agreements with the National Institutes of Health in getting people connected with the vaccine.
