- Report from Stanford University about the Virality Project’s real-time monitoring of COVID-19 anti-vaccine narratives
- A front-line report from a parent who took on vaccine advocacy in her community
- Practical training from the GQR communications strategy firm on mainstream disinformation, common social media pitfalls and specific tactics and best practices to counter harmful narratives online
