Were you or a loved one injured by COVID-19 after refusing vaccination based on misinformation from an online influencer or television personality?

About This Project

John Culhane, Professor of Law and H. Albert Young Fellow in Constitutional Law and Co-Director of the Family Health Law & Policy Institute at Widener University Delaware Law School, has spearheaded an initiative to research and examine the sources of misleading information about COVID-19 vaccines. Working with a small group of students, Prof. Culhane will conduct factual research through sensitive interviews with COVID-19 sufferers, and with those who have lost loved ones to the disease. At the conclusion of each interview, and with the party's consent, the team may identify possible follow-up action, which may include legal recourse. Such legal action would be conducted by third parties with whom the Project Team has no relationship.

To submit a report, please call 833-VAX-LIES (833-829-5437).

For information about the COVID-19 vaccines, please visit Vaccines for COVID-19 | CDC.
