Vaccine Confidence: Where We Are Now and Where We Are Headed

In 2021 we introduced a six-part vaccine confidence series featuring nurse champions who shared their experience with the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, addressing nursing burnout, and much more. We are continuing the conversation about vaccine confidence with a four-episode special focusing on vaccine confidence trends and lessons learned so far.

In this episode we follow up with Melody Butler, who we previously talked to in 2021 from our first vaccine confidence series. She explains where we are in the pandemic and addresses the simultaneous surge of COVID, RSV, and the flu. Butler also shares her perspective on whether we are more prepared to prevent cases of infectious disease than in previous years.

Melody Butler, BSN, RN, CIC is an infection preventionist at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center on Long Island and the founder of Nurses Who Vaccinate.
