Health conspiracy theories surrounding COVID-19 are leading to negative health consequences—ranging from rejecting behaviors like mask wearing and social distancing to vaccine resistance. While traditional health education works well for the “vaccine-hesitant” population who simply has questions, those same traditional methods fall flat with the “vaccine-resistant” population who consumes online health conspiracies.
Leaving these conspiracies unchallenged and merely disseminating facts alone allows misinformation to spread further. To achieve herd immunity, we must address vaccine access and hesitation, and fight conspiracy theories that are causing vaccine resistance. These innovative strategies for fighting COVID-19 conspiracies can also be applied to other public health conspiracy theories.
