COVID-19 Vaccines in Humanitarian Settings and Fragile States

Wednesday, March 30, 2022(8:30AM ET )
Hosted by CORE Group


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. Vaccine inequity especially remains a key challenge in humanitarian settings and fragile states. Panelists for this episode will share their experiences and strategies to support demand and increase confidence in COVID-19 vaccines in humanitarian settings in Kenya, Uganda, and Nigeria. The panel was followed by a Q&A and discussion.
