Readying Populations for the COVID-19 Vaccine


This Working Group will develop an agenda to guide the aggregation, generation, and translation of known and novel research about social and behavioral challenges with a COVID-19 vaccine. With the time lag in vaccine availability, the US has an opportunity to foresee and study potential issues and to develop evidence-informed policies and practices that facilitate the public’s understanding of, access to, and ultimate uptake of a novel coronavirus vaccine.
