The Navigators is an all-volunteer public/private partnership group formed in March of 2020 at the start of the COVID pandemic to overcome the long-standing barriers in the vaccine delivery process. This group has been instrumental in major changes adopted by CDC, state public health and pharmacies. The Navigators continue to meet each week to discuss solutions that can be implemented and scaled specific to the problems we face today to include how to increase vaccine access to all Americans, advocating for the further expansion of administering point of care testing and immunizations in pharmacies, overcoming the challenges with vaccine hesitancy, and bolstering the infrastructure between pharmacies, public health, and the consumer. Through collaboration and coordination, and a focus on addressing patient and public health needs we can make a difference. The Navigators welcomes interested entities representing stakeholders across the immunization ecosystem to participate in our weekly meetings, which are held via zoom every Tuesday at 11am EDT. If you would like to join, please contact Ryan Watkins at
