The Boston Globe Unveils Special Section to Advocate for COVID-19 Vaccination

The Boston Globe introduced a special section, The Last Best Shot, “a sweeping initiative featuring an editorial from the Globe’s editorial board urging bold efforts to vaccinate Americans and several stories from the Globe’s top healthcare and metro reporters, underpinned by a compelling series of data visualizations, to reinforce the importance of vaccinations in the fight against COVID-19.” Its goal is to show how getting vaccinated is the best defense against the spread of COVID-19. More than 50 other newsrooms in the U.S., including the Miami Herald and the Chicago Sun-Times, have published similar editorial features.

“We have an obligation as journalists to report facts and provide context and analysis on issues of great importance to our communities,” says Brian McGrory, The Boston Globe’s editor. “We know how to change this. We need the individual and collective will to do it. The Globe is trying to help in the best way we know how—giving prominence to people’s stories and sharing hard data in this special section.”
