Why does Wikipedia need a reliable sources list on vaccines? [UPDATE]

As we mentioned in this earlier post, NewsQ has started a project with Knowledge Futures Group that will allow members of the Wikipedia community to use data, based upon previous Wikipedian deliberations, to achieve a more robust, defensible consensus around reliable sources. We are collaborating with experienced Wikipedia editors participating in the Wikimedia DC chapter to gather this data and refine a list of reputable sources of vaccine information throughout 2022 and 2023. You can find the current list of reliable sources about vaccines here.

We wanted to add our thanks to Craig Newmark Philanthropies for providing additional support to this work, which will include resources for micro-grants, in-person meetings, and safe, respectful exchanges around our project. We’re looking forward to keeping everyone updated on our progress in the coming year!
