Webinar: Building Vaccine Confidence – Global Trends and Practical Solutions
Despite the rapid development of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines, resistance to immunization threatens to prolong the arc of the pandemic globally. The drivers of vaccine concern are both vast and population-specific, ranging from misinformation and media manipulation campaigns to historical legacies of medical exploitation among marginalized communities. As such, responses must be intentional, data-driven, and account for the full spectrum of motivations that may prompt resistance to immunizations. Addressing a truly multidisciplinary challenge, efforts to build vaccine confidence require engagement from an array of key stakeholders, including civil society, government officials, academics, and the private sector.
