Building Vaccine Confidence at the Washington National Cathedral

Posted on by Dr. Francis Collins

The Washington National Cathedral recently hosted a special event to encourage all people, especially those of faith, to get vaccinated to protect themselves and their communities from COVID-19. As shown in this image, it was my honor to be one of those asked to speak briefly to those assembled in this sacred space. I assured everyone that the available vaccines are safe and effective, and that we now have reason for hope to put the pandemic behind us. After the comments concluded, 25 local religious leaders and clergy stepped forward to have their vaccines administered on camera to encourage others, when offered, to do the same. The event took place on the evening of March 16, 2021. Credit: NIH
