New publication explores role of trust and information consumption on vaccine and booster uptake


Congratulations to Ruben Juarez and team for their new publication in Vaccines. To understand contributors to vaccine hesitancy and how they change over time, the team surveyed 1594 adults during the COVID-19 Delta wave, with follow-up surveys during the Omicron-wave. The analyses are critical for the development of effective public health policies and offer insights into hesitancy over the course of the COVID-19 vaccine and booster rollout.
