Free session for journalists will discuss vaccinate hesitancy

Poynter is offering a free session on Wednesday about what journalists need to know about vaccine hesitancy:

Mass vaccination is the key to ending the COVID-19 pandemic. So why are approximately 40 percent of Americans not planning to be vaccinated? What role do journalists play in convincing people they should?

Tune in for our next On Poynt session called “Vaccine Hesitancy: What Journalists Need to Know” this Wednesday, March 31 at 11 a.m. CT. On Poynt sessions are free to attend and pop-up in concert with the news cycle, taking you behind the scenes of the story everyone is talking about.

This week, you’ll hear a fascinating conversation between Poynter senior faculty Joie Chen, Kaiser Family Foundation director of global public health & HIV policy Dr. Jennifer Kates, and KTRK/ABC13 anchor Chauncy Glover about the role of local journalists at this moment in the COVID-19 crisis.
