Vaccines and Moral Beliefs

This week within the campaign we’ve been discussing moral frameworks and how people think about vaccines, healthcare, masks, and more in terms of right and wrong.

The Center for Artistic Activism led a short lesson on moral frameworks this week, and supplemented it with a recent episode of the You Are Not So Smart Podcast.

In this episode of the You Are Not So Smart Podcast, we sit down with four experts on vaccines, epidemiology, psychology, and science communication to try and understand how we created so much confusion about COVID-19, and how we can avoid doing so again when a vaccine is ready for widespread, public distribution.

Episode 189 – Why we must use social science to fight misinformation, partisanship, conspiratorial thinking, and general confusion when we finally have a vaccine for COVID-19

While the focus of the episode leans toward vaccine hesitancy, the insights on moral frames provide some excellent starting points for strategy and tactic ideas in our work.

You can find You Are Not So Smart wherever you get podcasts and download episode #189. Or check it out on their site.
