The Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy, just released a Community Toolkit for Addressing Health Misinformation. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been exposed to a vast array of misinformation regarding masks, social distancing, vaccinations, and more. Although it's not a new phenomena, misinformation is an ever-increasing threat to our communities.
This toolkit provides a practical guide to identifying, understanding, and responding to misinformation. It also provides tips and strategies for discussing the importance of information with your community and loved ones. Through a short collection of practice activities, reflections, and discussions, you can learn strategies to identify misinformation and prevent being mislead.
Check out the Community Toolkit for Addressing Health Misinformation today to protect yourself and community from misinformation. Visit Santa Clara County Public Health to learn about vaccinations and book an appointment. Explore our community resources for Free and Low Cost Medical Services.
