Vaccines and COVID-19: The Importance of Trust
Since the SARS outbreak in 2003, ethical frameworks for pandemic planning have been developed and deployed. Yet 17 years on, and many outbreaks later, we are still slow to proactively address issues like trust, transparency and solidarity in outbreak response. Those who work in pandemic ethics marvel at the failure to learn the lessons from past outbreaks. But COVID-19 is also the first pandemic to be shaped by the rapid sharing of information, and misinformation. This talk will focus on how trust in public health and government are essential for outbreak response and management using the example of COVID-19 vaccine development, allocation and hesitancy.
Alison Thompson ist Professorin für Drug Safety and Health Services Research an der Universität Toronto und Visiting Fellow am CAS.
