Vaccination as a Chance to Rebuild Trust

COVID-19 Is Here to Stay, Vaccine Hesitancy Does Not Have To

26 January 2021

All across Central Europe, governments have struggled to respond to the first and second waves of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the implementation of a broadly-supported and effective vaccination campaign, they have a chance to regain the trust of citizens.

While the end of the COVID-19 pandemic may finally be in sight, the actual end is still months away. It depends on the successful distribution of vaccines and the immunisation of the population.

Yet, both the politicisation of vaccination and information chaos (the so-called ‘infodemic’) that captured our societies to a large extent, pose a serious threat to immunisation efforts.

To overcome this and manage vaccination distress, governments need to focus on (re)building trust and supporting citizens in making an informed decision. As such, they should take both individual and collective interests into account.
