Vaccine Hesitancy and Resistance During a Global Pandemic: Nurses Lead a Positive Change

Presenter: Dr. Mary Koslap-Petraco DNP, PPCNP-BC, CPNP, FAANP

Wednesday, October 21st, 2020

6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. 

 

Location: Virtual via Zoom

Description: 1.0 CEU Credits

 

Vaccine hesitancy and resistance have been present since the first vaccine for smallpox was developed in 1796. The advent of the internet initiated a proliferation of anti vaccine information that became available to anyone who had access to a computer. Rather than relying on the expertise of health care providers, the public began to believe that they could determine the safety of vaccines themselves. Many in the public lost trust in the system and in all health care providers except for nurses. The outbreak of the COVID pandemic saw a rising interest in developing a vaccine at ‘warp speed.’ The emphasis on a rapidly developed vaccine has caused the public to increase its skepticism. Nurses own vaccines and will be key players in ensuring that a safe and effective COVID vaccine is accepted by the public.

·        Analyze the sources of vaccine hesitancy and resistance

·        Interpret the evidence for vaccine safety

·        Appraise a paradigm to counter vaccine resistance in individuals
