This workshop on COVID-19 vaccine acceptation is aimed at initiating new research that will help policy makers to shape vaccination policy.

Event details of COVID-19 vaccination acceptance (online)
Date 13 November 2020
Time 10:30 -15:00
Organised by Roland Pierik , Han van der Maas

Research on vaccines against COVID-19 is being conducted all over the world. We do not know yet if and when an effective vaccine will become available. But we do know that such a vaccine will play a central role in controlling this pandemic, provided that enough people get vaccinated. Much depends therefore on the acceptance of COVID-19 vaccination. 

In this interdisciplinary workshop we will make an inventory of the current scientific knowledge in this field, and initiate new research aimed at developing recommendations on how to shape COVID-19 vaccination policy.

The working language in this workshop is Dutch.

About the series: 'The COVID-19 pandemic: time to reflect'

Together with Science versus Corona, we organise a series of discussions to foster exchange, debate and collaboration between the disciplines. Researchers are invited to initiate new discussions by proposing a theme.
