A new "Vaccine Misinformation Management Guide" has been published by UNICEF in a bid to equip health authorities, CSOs and others to deal with the onslaught of dangerous rumours about vaccine safety.

Written by Gary Finnegan, Editor of Vaccines Today, and Angus Thomson, a UNICEF consultant and member of the Vaccines Today Editorial Board, the guide pulls together the resources and the latest thinking on tracking and tackling false information.

It draws on input from a range of partners, principally First Draft, an CSO fighting misinformation; the Public Good Projects, a non-profit with expertise in behaviour change; and the Yale Institute for Global Health.
