ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s deputy health secretary says the state will conduct an outreach effort to promote trust in a coronavirus vaccine when one becomes available.
Dr. Jinlene Chan told a panel of state lawmakers Wednesday that state health officials recognize they will need to provide facts and answer questions people have to instill confidence when a vaccine is ready.
She says health officials recognize that there are groups that may be more hesitant to accept a vaccination than others.
Chan says the health department recognizes it will need to focus on conveying information that is not just language appropriate, but culturally appropriate as well.
