Dear Partners,

Following on from the webinar ‘Immunization in the time of COVID-19’ hosted in June 2020 outlining the impact of COVID-19 on routine immunization services, we are delighted to invite you to the latest webinar in our immunisation series.

Keeping Trust in Immunisation: Community perception of Vaccination in the time of COVID-19:

An Online Conversation hosted by Gavi CSO Constituency in partnership with ACTION, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, RESULTS UK & Save the Children

Join us on Thursday November 19th at 15.00 CET.

Whilst there are enormous challenges facing immunization, the COVID-19 pandemic has sharpened the focus on immunization systems. With global attention on the issue of securing a COVID-19 vaccine, we have an opportunity to highlight the chronic challenges that prevent the equitable distribution of vaccines. This webinar provides a platform for an in-depth analysis on vaccine confidence and seeks to reflect on current measures taken to maintain trust in immunization services.

With a targeted focus on community perception of vaccination, the discussion will feature first-hand testimonies and experiences of community health workers as they explore what it will take to restore trust and understanding of the science behind vaccines and the roles of different actors in sustaining public trust in routine immunization.
