Covid-19 Misinformation Toolkits

Good day all :)

The following message is from the STOI IHS CEO:

Today, Dr. Vivek Murthy released a new Community Toolkit for Addressing Health Misinformation to help Americans navigate the serious threat of health misinformation, especially online. This builds on the Advisory issued earlier this year warning people about the urgent threat of health misinformation which also called for a whole of society approach to address it.

“With the authorization of COVID-19 vaccines for children 5 to11 years old, it is more important than ever that families have access to accurate, science-based information. Health misinformation is spreading fast and far online and throughout our communities,” said Dr. Vivek Murthy. “The good news is that we all have the power to help stop the spread of health misinformation during this pandemic and beyond. That’s where this toolkit comes in—to provide Americans with resources to help limit and reduce this threat to public health.”
