Over a year after COVID-19 hit the United States, the country is in the midst of a mass vaccination campaign to reach community immunity, administering more than three million vaccines each day. However, reaching the 70-85% vaccinated threshold for herd immunity will require addressing a significant barrier: vaccine confidence. Recent polling from the Center for Disease Control and the Census Bureau has found that one in five Americans would “definitely not” or “probably not” get vaccinated. Research has identified many complicated and overlapping factors, including misinformation on digital platforms, a polarized American discourse, and the access barriers and distrust experienced by historically marginalized communities.

The 2021 Huang symposium: The Struggle Between Fact and Fiction explores vaccine confidence, bringing together experts from the fields of public policy, decision science, technology, and medicine to discuss the roots, challenges, and promising paths forward.

We are excited to welcome our Keynote speaker, Dr. Dietram Scheufele, Taylor-Bascom Chair in Science Communication and Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Keynote will begin at 1pm EST and will be followed by a panel at 2:10pm EST with the following co-panelists:

Shepley Distinguished Professor of Public Policy, Professor in the Sanford School of Public Policy, Senior Associate Dean for Faculty and Research in the Sanford School of Public Policy, Professor of the International Comparative Studies Program, Associate of the Duke Initiative for Science & Society.
