Confronting COVID-19 Vaccine Misinformation

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people have been exposed to information that is false, inaccurate, or misleading. Misinformation has caused confusion and led people to decline COVID-19 vaccines, reject public health measures such as masking and physical distancing, and use unproven treatments.

U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy has issued an Advisory, Confronting Health Misinformation, about the urgent threat of health misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines.

The Advisory and its contents can provide valuable background to use in your vaccination outreach.
