Inoculating Against the Infodemic: How Journalists Counter COVID Myths, Turn the Mic Around
Misinformation is as contagious as the coronavirus itself. Amplified by social media and messaging platforms, the infodemic has created fast-moving rumors that leave a wake of vaccine hesitancy.

In this month’s Turn the Mic Around conversation, our guest Graziella Almendral del Rio will discuss with Internews President Jeanne Bourgault the causes and solutions to the COVID “infodemic”. Grazielle is the author of “Vaccines: When Human Beings Won the Invisible War“, and is a commentator on Spanish TV, providing daily analysis of COVID-19 and vaccines. She is also President of the 700-member Spanish Association of Health Specialist Journalists.

Turn the Mic Around: Conversations with Journalists & Technologists on the Frontlines. Join us each month as we go behind-the-scenes exploring stories from journalists operating in conflict zones, emerging democracies, and humanitarian crises as they deliver trustworthy information to communities that need it most.
