Episode 2 of CORE Group’s Vaccine Confidence Live Webinar Series: Protecting Communities by Transforming Vaccine Hesitancy to Confidence

After the rapid development of the COVID-19 vaccines and subsequent rollout, there has been an infodemic of misinformation circulating about COVID-19 vaccine safety and efficacy, reducing public trust in getting vaccinated. The challenges and solutions to address them vary from country to country.

Panelists for this episode will share lessons learned in Uganda and Kenya about promoting the acceptance of COVID-19 vaccines: what they and their organizations are doing to promote vaccine confidence, what is working, and what could work. The panel will be followed by a Q&A and discussion.
