Increasing Vaccine Confidence

 MBGH's April 13 webinar, "Strategies to Increase Vaccine Confidence", shared insights into how to help employees get the credible information they need to make an informed decision on whether or not to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Key insights included: 

Use trusted messengers. Sometimes the most trusted messengers are the “informal” leaders in your organizations that people work with and respect. 

Identify ways to better understand why employees that haven’t gotten the vaccine are hesitant. Knowing this, you can tailor your messages to address the specific concerns your employees have. Can you survey your employees about whether they have gotten the vaccine and if not, why not?

There is power in personal stories about why people have chosen to get the vaccine. Identify employees from across your organization, with consideration that when people see “people like me” share their stories, it resonates more for them.

The “wait and see” group is the most moved by messaging to get the vaccine. The “definitely not” group is not as moved by messaging.
