Hromadske Radio Develops Standards for Vaccination-related Coverage

November 6 – The Hromadske Radio editorial board developed and launched a set of standards to guide its radio coverage of Covid-19 vaccination issues.

The key standards include:

  • Use terms like “vaccinated,” “unvaccinated,” “those who support/don’t support vaccination,” and “those who are undecided,” instead of dividing people by using the terms “antivaxxers” and “pro-vaxxers;”
  • Inform people about vaccination and promote a scientific approach to vaccines with the help of invited experts; and
  • Talk about people’s hesitation, perceived risks, and reservations about the Covid-19 vaccines and ask experts to comment on these fears and reservations.
