COVID-19 Vaccine: Trust and Communication
Getting the COVID-19 vaccine into the arms of Americans is a top priority for federal and local health officials. However, among the many obstacles in distributing and administering this vaccine, the ability to communicate reliably is proving to be a challenge.
From countering disinformation and building public trust, to reaching disadvantaged communities and broadband deserts – governments at all levels must find a way to engage, educate and get the vaccination message out to all Americans.
What are the key principles of effective communication in the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine? How can we reach all communities with accurate information, especially those who are skeptical about the vaccine?
The Hill will convene leading public officials, health professionals and communication experts for a discussion on the value of fact-based health communication and building trust in the COVID-19 vaccine.
