Vaccine acceptance depends on public trust in the safety and efficacy of vaccines, the health care system, and health professionals. Nurses are the most trusted healthcare professionals in America, consistently rated highest in the country for their honesty and ethics. Not only do nurses play a vital role in the administration of vaccines, they are also essential for building vaccine confidence and trust.
Watch the first session of the Nurse-Led Forum for Vaccine Confidence series, where we heard diverse perspectives from the nursing community and discussed how to become a vaccine ambassador as a first step to building trust in public health and the COVID-19 vaccine.
