This implementation science study will use mixed methods and an interrupted time series design to evaluate an implementation strategy intended to expand the reach and effectiveness of COVID-19 testing and vaccination services in underserved populations in the Piedmont region of NC. The primary service outcomes (i.e., reach and effectiveness) will be evaluated using review of existing routinely collected data. The primary implementation outcomes will be assessed through mixed methods research with patients who received, and providers who delivered, COVID-19 testing or prevention services, such as vaccination, at a Consortium-supported site such as a Federally Qualified Health Center administered by Piedmont Health. A standardized script will be used to inform potential participants about the study, their research options, and to screen to see if they are preliminarily eligible to take part in the study.
