Vaccine Acceptance Webinars: managing vaccine misinformation in the midst of a pandemic

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been exacerbated by the dissemination of misinformation obstructing the way preventive strategies (such as social distancing, use of masks, vaccination…) are being regarded and adopted by the population thus further increasing the bottlenecks in the implementation of these strategies and ultimately impacting disease control. The spreading of false or inaccurate information seems to be one major public health threat that needs to be assessed and understood.

These webinars bring together international experts to showcase and support understanding on misinformation challenges faced during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
