ABSTRACT

Vaccine Hesitancy: Understanding and Addressing Vaccine Hesitancy During COVID-19   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "With the need to manage both influenza and COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], the heightened focus around vaccination presents an opportunity for pharmacists to help combat vaccine hesitancy. Defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as 'the delay in acceptance or refusal of vaccines despite availability of vaccination services,' vaccine hesitancy has the potential to create significant public health problems, especially when our health care resources are being strained. This resource is meant to prepare pharmacists to engage in productive conversations with patients about immunizations. Pharmacists are trusted healthcare professionals. Your relationship with your patients is a powerful tool in addressing vaccine hesitancy of individuals and communities."
