Moving the Needle from Vaccine Hesitancy to Vaccine Confidence

June 14, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

As we expand access to vaccines, we must educate patients with information to reduce their hesitancy. Accessibility is not enough to ensure uptake. This educational session provides an overview of differing types of resistance in both pediatric and adult populations and strategies to build patient motivation.

By the end of the webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss impacts of the social drivers of health on vaccine confidence, including considerations for diverse communities;
  • Review examples of communication strategies to build vaccine confidence;
  • Utilize and integrate motivational interviewing applications.

Presented by W. Michael Brown, MD, FAAP, Regional Medical Director, Merck & Co., Inc.
