Indiana is home to thousands of health research projects and clinical studies through Indiana University, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame. However, only a small fraction of Indiana residents report being involved in a research study or knowing someone who has participated in a clinical study.

How to talk about COVID-19 vaccines with friends and family

All IN for Health has adapted this infographic for its use based on CDC content.
listen with empathy

1. Listen with empathy.

You can help by listening without judgment and identifying the root of someone’s concern. Acknowledge their emotions so they know they have been heard.

2. Ask open-ended questions.

Be brave, try not to sound judgmental, and ask questions that help you understand their concerns.

3. Ask permission to share information.

Once you understand your friend or family member’s question or concern, ask if you can provide some information, and tell them where you get information you trust.

4. Help them find a reason to get vaccinated.

The reasons that someone may choose to get vaccinated will always be those that are most compelling to them personally.

Offer to help your family member or friend make a vaccination appointment at a location nearby and, if needed, go with them to the appointment.

Research Participant Highlight

Participants in IU School of Medicine AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine study come from many different backgrounds

Three participants of the IU School of Medicine late stage clinical study of an investigational COVID-19 vaccine known as AZD1222 spoke with members of the media during a virtual press conference on November 17.

Mia McLendon

McLendon says she felt like it was important to participate in the study because she is a minority with comorbidity (hypertension) and wanted to make sure she could represent those populations.

Joe Morris

Morris said one of the main reasons he wanted to participate in the study was that he wanted to do his part to help life get back to normal, so he can get back to doing the things he enjoys, such as having lunch with the ROMEOs (Retired Old Men Eating Out), as well as seeing movies, going to the gym and traveling.

Ashley Meagher

Meagher has worked with several patients who have been sick with COVID-19, which made her want to volunteer to participate in the study. One of her primary research interests involves health disparities.

Help us reach our goal of 100,000 Indiana residents who are focused on good health.
