Promoting Vaccination Confidence
Nurses can help build public trust in the fight against COVID-19
Nurses are the most trusted profession in the country. Your efforts can go a long way toward encouraging the public to get vaccinated — and fighting antivaxx propaganda.
Conspiracies and Setbacks
As of press time, more than 140 million Americans have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Unfortunately, a significant minority remains hesitant about the vaccines, which are now available to everyone aged 16 and older.
Conspiracy theories were spreading well before the first FDA emergency use authorization in December, and antivaxxers have seized on every subsequent setback (like the recent issues with the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine) to sow further mistrust.
