COVID-19: Information for Oregon Libraries: Vaccines
Resources about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) epidemic for those working in Oregon libraries
"This collection of curated information and resources about vaccines can help to answer common COVID-19-related questions, such as, “How can I change my behavior after being vaccinated and what precautions should I continue to take?” “What’s the context for and basis of COVID-19 vaccine reluctance?” and “Can libraries require guests to be vaccinated?” Resources also include articles about public health communication efforts, and historical perspectives and comparisons."

The Smithsonian has collaborated with cultural organizations in communities across the nation to create Vaccines & US. The resources here will help you make an informed decision about COVID‑19 vaccines and help you discuss the vaccines with your family, friends, and community.
By sharing the science, history, and cultural impact of infectious disease and vaccines, we hope to build understanding of our current moment, where we've been, and where we go from here.
