With an estimated 15% of the population being misinformed about vaccines, Dr. Miller’s presentation will discuss how misinformation leads to vaccine resistance and opposition. He will underscore the importance of combating vaccine misinformation for the betterment of personal relationships with family, friends and coworkers, as well as improving and protecting public health, economic growth, and national security.


Drawing from his extensive experience in health policy and communications, Dr. Miller will share insights from his forthcoming book, "Reversing Misinformation: How to Help Your Family, Friends, Community & World." He will emphasize the necessity of personal engagement in initiatives aimed at improving vaccine access and acceptance, highlighting the phrase "moving the needle on moving needles into arms" to underscore the importance of vaccination efforts.


In addition to addressing vaccine misinformation, Dr. Miller will touch upon the broader implications of misinformation in other critical areas such as elections and climate change. His presentation will provide valuable perspectives for attendees of the World Vaccine Congress, which annually convenes over 4,000 vaccine scientists, researchers, and advocates from around the world.


Following his presentation, Dr. Miller will moderate a fireside chat focusing on vaccine misinformation on social media and chair the day's sessions on misinformation. He will be available for interviews after the morning sessions on vaccine safety.
