“I joined the Influenzers because it’s important to me, especially as we’re seeing firsthand the destruction that diseases like COVID-19 can cause, to do as much as I can to help get the word out about how safe, efficient, and beneficial to the public these vaccines (and most other vaccines) are!”
“Immunization education is an essential component of being a pharmacist. I want to help educate the public and dispel any fears or myths associated with vaccines.”
“Given America’s indefensible history of medical research and implementation on marginalized groups and current struggles with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Influenzers’ mission is a vital one. It is important to assess the cultural, historical, and socioeconomic factors that influence attitudes and compliance with regards to vaccines. As a member of an interprofessional team of health sciences students, I hoped to engage the community and provide factual information to allow people to make informed healthy decisions.”
“I am so excited be an Influenzer! My passion for the public health, prophylactic intervention of vaccination has been developed and strengthened through my graduate coursework, work in influenza vaccine research and vaccine communications, and the current urgency to fight the global health crisis of vaccine hesitancy.”
“Medical mistrust and misinformation is rampant, and it makes me sad that people are missing out on important, life-saving healthcare just because they haven’t been extended a helping hand. I hope to help Influenzers be one of those extended hands!”
