The Covid Vaccine Hub is a dedicated global resource for journalists and fact-checkers wanting access to evidence-based information on Covid-19 vaccines with material available in multiple languages.

The Hub collates information on Covid-19 vaccines from trustworthy sources, including explainers, latest research summaries, expert comments, and online media briefings.

The project is a combined effort, with contributions from Science Media Centers and other non-profit organizations in Australia, the UK, Germany, Taiwan, Africa, Canada, the US, Spain, and New Zealand. A complete list of contributing organizations is available on the hub.

Journalists can also use the hub to sign up for a regular alert and use the network to ask questions about vaccines in different countries or to ask for help with a story.

This collaboration was made possible through a grant from the Google News Initiative. All organizations involved are independent and are focused on helping journalists and fact-checkers find accurate information and credible experts on Covid-19 vaccines.

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
