Study by Stevens, Rasul, & Oh Investigates Vaccine Mandate Discourse

Study results indicate that public health officials should take extra steps to combat vaccine misinformation, and further that they should assess the emotions people are having to design persuasive appeals that target the fear, anxiety and even anger exhibited by vaccine-hesitant individuals.

Graduate Students Hannah Stevens, Muhammad Ehab Rasul, and Yoo Jung (Erika) Oh published an article in the Journal of Medical Internet Research: Infodemiology investigating vaccine mandate discourse. A summary of the article was also featured on UC Davis News.
