Description

Vaccines are a notable public health achievement, which have helped to significantly reduce childhood morbidity, mortality and disease outbreaks. Although science supports their effectiveness, misinformation and hesitancy still exists. It’s critical for public health professionals to understand and address these issues to ensure successful implementation of immunization efforts. This webinar will uncover some of the sources of false information such as Twitter bots among other issues online and discuss methods to counter them. Healthcare professionals will also highlight their efforts to engage with individuals, families and the broader community in order to provide them with accurate information about immunizations and address their concerns and hesitancy.
