We can all help end the COVID-19 pandemic by increasing vaccine acceptance. Being a trusted source for information can play an important role in promoting vaccination. Less than half of the Northern New England population is fully vaccinated, far below levels needed to end the pandemic. Public and private agencies are working to remove logistical barriers for people seeking vaccination but still more than 35% of people currently decline vaccination despite strong public health recommendations. This course will explore diverse drivers of vaccine uptake and will provide strategies to overcome concerns and increase vaccine acceptance.
