Promoting Vaccinations and
Fighting Misinformation

Tuesday, August 10  |  3:00 P.M. ET


As America continues to grapple with COVID-19, the alarming rise of vaccine misinformation is creating harmful repercussions — not only for public health officials trying to beat the pandemic at hand, but for broader efforts to regularly vaccinate Americans from longstanding and emergent public health threats. In order to stop the spread of misinformation, it is more important than ever for government leaders, medical experts, and community-based organizations to come together to promote vaccine confidence and combat increasingly sophisticated efforts on social media to spread misinformation. In this special session, Chelsea Clinton will moderate a dynamic conversation focused on tools to build confidence in vaccines and the importance of reducing the spread of misinformation.
