The global survey, launched in partnership with YouGov (UK) the first week of April, is collecting fortnightly data from 29 countries to explore the public’s attitudes and health behaviors as the situation evolves.

                Through this survey they are monitoring how compliant individuals are with COVID-19 safety measures, such as self-isolation and avoiding unnecessary travel. They are also looking into a range of other relevant behaviours and measures, from hygiene to quality of life.

                  The Public’s Role in COVID-19 Vaccination: Planning Recommendations Informed by Design Thinking and the Social, Behavioral, and Communication Sciences

                  This report considers human factors in relation to future vaccines against COVID-19, drawing on insights from design thinking and the social, behavioral, and communication sciences. It provides recommendations—directed to both US policymakers and practitioners, as well as nontraditional partners new to public health’s mission of vaccination—on how to advance public understanding of, access to, and acceptance of vaccines that protect against COVID-19.

                  The report offers several recommendations for enhancing acceptance of vaccines:

                  • Put people at the center of a revolutionary SARS-CoV-2 vaccine research enterprise
                  • Understand and inform public expectations about vaccine benefits, risks, and supply
                  • Earn the public’s confidence that vaccine allocation and distribution are evenhanded
                  • Make vaccination available in safe, familiar, and convenient places
                  • Communicate in meaningful, relevant, and personal terms, crowding out misinformation –
                  • Establish independent representative bodies (i.e., public oversight committees) to instill public ownership of the vaccination program

                    How to Greet Friends after Lockdown

                    These two COVID-19 safety posters were created to illustrate the do’s and don’ts of greeting friends after lockdown.

                    The posters outline appropriate greetings, such as: waving, bowing, nodding and touching elbows. These greetings have little to no contact and therefore reduce each person’s risk of contracting the novel coronavirus.
