CRoME Lab members (Tyler McCarthy, Annika Brekke, McKennah Matulle, Ellie Maday, Courtney Koeberl, and Evan Slonac) participated in the Spring 2023 Science Expeditions where they spoke to 301 individuals. They presented on vaccine confidence to people of all ages, answering any and all vaccine-related questions that they could. According to the CDC, vaccine confidence is the belief that vaccines are safe, effective and part of a trustworthy health care system. The Vaccine Confident project is a dissemination-focused, joint effort between APhA, AACP and 5 land-grant universities to improve COVID-19 immunization uptake. The purpose of this project is to share the resources found on the APhA created site (vaccineconfident.pharmacist.com) where pharmacists, allied healthcare professionals and community members can access recourses designed to help them empower their communities with vaccine confidence.
