SYDNEY, Nov. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The COVID-19 Vaccine Media Hub (https://covidvaccinehub.org/) is a dedicated global resource for journalists and fact checkers wanting access to evidence-based information on COVID-19 vaccines with material available in multiple languages.
The Hub collates information on COVID-19 vaccines from trustworthy sources, including explainers, summaries of the latest research, expert comments, and online media briefings.
The project is a combined effort, with contributions from Science Media Centres and other not-for-profit organisations in Australia, the UK, Germany, Taiwan, Africa, Canada, the US, Spain and New Zealand. A full list of contributing organisations is available on the hub.
Journalists can also use the hub to sign up to a regular alert and use the network to ask questions about vaccines in different countries or to ask for help with a story.
This collaboration was made possible through a grant from the Google News Initiative. All organisations involved are independent and are focused on helping journalists and factcheckers find accurate information and credible experts on COVID-19 vaccines.
