The world is filled with conflicting information about vaccines, leaving many people wondering what to believe. Voices for Vaccines has sorted through all the good information, the myths, and the misinformation to bring you credible, science-based vaccine information you can trust. This app will help you debunk vaccine disinformation, start a conversation with a concerned friend, and advocate for public health to the people who mean the most to you: your friends and family.
Voices for Vaccines has been working to build confidence in immunization for a decade by helping families understand the science of how vaccines are made, how they are monitored for safety, why they make a difference in our communities, and what they can do to protect loved ones. The appearance of COVID-19 has caused a lot of concern and interest in vaccines, and Voices for Vaccines is ready to help you meet the challenge.
The truth is that feeling confident that vaccines are both safe and important is not just a matter of being exposed to science. People also need to hear from those who care about them and are vested in their health and well-being. That means you have the power to address a family member's questions or reinforce a friend's resolve to protect themselves.
You may be uncertain about where to start or how to explain vaccine safety. That's where our ""Start a Conversation"" tool comes in. We help you figure out where a person is in their journey to vaccination and give you advice about how to listen actively and to build a partnership to figure things out.
On the other hand, you may have a good conversation going but are stumped by a claim about immunization that doesn't seem quite right. Our Debunking tool is there to rescue you! We have resources on almost any myth you might hear about all of the commonly given vaccines. And if we don't have it, you can ask us for it.
Sometimes, though, it's not so much that others need to talk or to have something debunked as much as you just really want to spread the word about vaccination as a safe and effective choice. We have a place for you to take action, whether you want to send us your photo, share a graphic on social media, or volunteer with your local immunization coalition. Proactively talking about vaccines reminds people how many of us care about the health of our communities and the protection of each other's families. Vaccines save lives, and you can, too.
