This workshop aims to develop a resource for journalists to help answer the question: “What is quality vaccine journalism?” For example, is it enough for an article to reference vaccine information from the World Health Organization, or should there be citations from other reputable sources as well? And how can reputable sources be identified? Workshop leaders have been working on identifying elements of high-quality vaccine reporting by developing a quality vaccine reporting questionnaire to share with journalists, researchers and other stakeholder communities.

Participants will be able to test the questionnaire and provide feedback in addition to learning about ways that researchers are trying to build resources to help trust-building exchanges online. This workshop is being coordinated by Hacks/Hackers and the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington as part of the National Science Foundation’s Convergence Accelerator. More about the project can be found here.

Organised in association with MisinfoCon.
