How to leverage social media to combat misinformation
“As members of the health care workforce, we must recognize the crucial role we play in influencing vaccine uptake.

We should aim to increase vaccine uptake at ‘warp speed.’ Now is the time to harness the power of social media to combat disinformation. Now is the time to use creative content to put an end to this pandemic. This is our lane. Will you join us in this fight?”
