COVID-19 Vaccine Communication, Misinformation, and Fear

Join us for a special COVID-19 webinar series hosted by the Geisel School of Medicine and co-sponsored by Dartmouth Alumni Relations and Dartmouth's graduate schools.

The current attempt to administer COVID-19 vaccines in the United States is encountering numerous obstacles, including skepticism and fear, leading many people to forego them. How does this situation differ from previous mass vaccination campaigns, such as against polio or smallpox? How is it being affected by the growing skepticism surrounding childhood vaccinations? How can misinformation and disinformation be overcome to achieve widespread COVID-19 vaccine uptake? Experts on infectious diseases, behavior change, marketing, racial inequities, and public health will delve into these topics and answer your questions.
