The Vaccine Confidence Message Brief explores what motivates high-priority audiences to get the Covid-19 vaccine. The Rockefeller Foundation conducted both a national message testing study and focus groups among people expressing concerns about getting the vaccine—including healthcare workers and K-12 teachers. The brief includes high-level audience insights and message recommendations, aimed at motivating audiences to take action. Additionally, it offers tailored communications to reach communities of color.
