Andy is joined by Heidi Larson, Founding Director of The Vaccine Confidence Project, for a conversation about, well, vaccine confidence. They discuss what causes vaccine hesitancy, how to boost confidence in the COVID-19 vaccines, and how to convert those who are on the fence about taking it. Plus, the particular trust issues among communities of color.
