Communicating the Importance of Immunization and Dispelling Vaccine Misinformation
The Sabin Vaccine Institute recognizes that journalists and health workers play a vital role in public health by promoting fact-based media coverage on disease outbreaks and dispelling misinformation and disinformation about vaccines. The recent rise of vaccine-related disinformation campaigns has dire consequences for the health of our communities and requires countering with evidence-based reporting. To that end, Sabin developed Immunization Advocates to support media professionals and health workers with educational resources and connect journalists to health experts to help them report accurately on immunization.
The Sabin Vaccine Institute is a leading advocate for expanding vaccine access and uptake globally, advancing vaccine research and development, and amplifying vaccine knowledge and innovation. Unlocking the potential of vaccines through partnership, Sabin has built a robust ecosystem of funders, innovators, implementers, practitioners, policy makers and public stakeholders to advance its vision of a future free from preventable diseases.
As a non-profit with more than two decades of experience, Sabin is committed to finding solutions that last and extending the full benefits of vaccines to all people, regardless of who they are or where they live.
Thomson Reuters Foundation Partnership
Sabin Vaccine Institute is partnering with Thomson Reuters Foundation to offer training programs and educational resources for journalists and media professionals to better prepare them to accurately report on vaccine and immunization. Training includes regional meetings that combine educational sessions on vaccine and immunization fundamentals with hands-on health reporting workshops led by Thomson Reuters Foundation educators.
