About the Event
Now that the COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone, cities and counties across the United States are facing another challenge: vaccine hesitancy. Mayors and other public officials are uniquely positioned to use their positions to improve vaccine utilization. Based on the findings of a multi-city project and report, this session will offer recommendations for cities on actionable steps to promote vaccine adoption and will discuss how cities are engaging their communities to ensure equitable access to vaccines and address hesitancy.
About the Project
The Harvard Kennedy School’s Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation is collaborating with Bennett Midland, Zencity and cities and counties across the United States to understand residents’ attitudes and sentiment towards the COVID-19 vaccines. Supported by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the project seeks to understand and minimize hesitancy around the COVID-19 vaccine, promote an informed conversation, and enhance satisfaction with city and county vaccine rollout among their communities.
