In an effort to clear up misinformation about vaccines, The Boston Globe ran a special front-page section on August 18 that comprehensively debunked myths about vaccines and identified other barriers to vaccination in our community.

The Globe also published an editorial that addressed vaccine hesitancy in our communities and recommends the next steps to encourage vaccination.

NENPA worked with The Boston Globe on this coordinated effort to promote the initiative to combat Covid-19 vaccine hesitancy to newspapers around New England. We asked them to support the initiative by writing their own editorial on August 18 that addresses vaccine hesitancy for their community and The Globe made additional special section materials available to New England newspapers (content, charts, social media, etc.)

It’s not too late to participate! NENPA continues to support this effort and is encouraging newspapers in New England to run an editorial in the upcoming weeks.

Over 50 publications have already participated, many from New England, and the campaign was supported by media companies around the country too. We have linked to many of the editorials in New England, let us know if we missed yours at
