March for Science is proud to introduce our new vaccine campaign, #VaccineBoosters. This new series is part of our broader campaign to educate the public about the science behind the COVID vaccines and to talk about the injustices and inequities that contribute to vaccine hesitancy.
As part of this work, we are training thousands of volunteers from around the country to be vaccine ambassadors in their community. Apart from one’s own medical provider, the best people to raise vaccine confidence come from within one’s own community.
For example, how many of you have friends who have asked if you’re getting the COVID vaccine, and then expressed concern over getting it themselves? The goal of this campaign is to show that everyone has a role to play, and train people in having conversations about vaccines that are actually productive, not confrontational.
We are working with top experts in public health, vaccine hesitancy, health disparities, and science communication to develop workshops and trainings that are based in solid research.
We’ll teach you:
--The do’s and dont's of online debates
--How to tell the good info from the bad
--How to organize in your communities and help our most vulnerable members book vaccine appointments
--Most of all: how to help change the world, one conversation at a time
Remember, Science Marchers, humanity has never faced a challenge quite like this, and it will take all of us to address misinformation, make sure access to the vaccine is fair and equitable, and, ultimately, move forward into a COVID-free world.
