This webinar explored state strategies to improve COVID-19 vaccine confidence and reach more communities in an equitable and efficient manner.
As of May 2021, all individuals ages 12 and older are eligible for COVID-19 immunizations. As states continue to design and roll out targeted vaccination campaigns, they are considering:
- The reasons why individuals are hesitant to get the COVID-19 vaccine;
- Current efforts to undermine confidence in the vaccine; and
- Solutions to address vaccine hesitancy.
Speakers from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Oregon Health Authority, and AM TRACE discussed various types of vaccine hesitancy, practical issues around vaccination, emerging issues of misinformation, and places where interventions can improve vaccine confidence in order to support pandemic recovery.
- Moderator: Trish Riley, NASHP Executive Director
- Richard Quartarone, Communication Co-Deputy, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
- Douglas Raymond Lyon, MD, Senior Health Advisor, Oregon Health Authority
