Vaccine Hesitancy in the Information Age

December 2, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

In 2019, the World Health Organization named vaccine hesitancy as one of the top ten threats to global health. Vaccine hesitancy and mistrust in science are troubling trends that are growing despite unprecedented access to information – or perhaps because of it?

Are you curious about why someone you know won’t get vaccinated? Join us for a multi-disciplinary discussion and Q&A focused on understanding the root causes of scientific and institutional mistrust, combating misinformation, and learning communication tools to discuss vaccine hesitancy with friends, family, and the public. This is an opportunity to have your questions answered.

Hosted by UBC Department of Microbiology & Immunology Graduate Students and the UBC Vaccine Literacy Club.
