The COVID-19 vaccine rollout for children ages 5-11 is well underway. Booster shots are now approved for everyone 18 and older. If enough eligible people get vaccinated, we will get through the pandemic faster, and save lives. But misinformation continues to be a major barrier to vaccine confidence.
Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy, MD, MBA, is on a mission to combat misinformation, and he’s enlisting the help of community organizations, public health organizations and workforces to ensure families and communities can make informed decisions about vaccine readiness and uptake.
This conversation with Surgeon General Murthy and CDC Foundation President and CEO, Judy Monroe, MD covers topics to ensure trusted messengers are well-equipped with clear, consistent, equity-centered communication to counter misinformation and encourage vaccination among those still on the fence.
