Vaccine sentiment tracking

66,591 tweets classified

This project involves the question of how people feel about the topic of vaccination. Vaccine sentiment is tied to vaccination coverage which is an important public health indicator. Tracking vaccine sentiment can be used to improve mathematical models of the spread of infectious diseases. These models help to predict outcomes of epidemics and facilitate the decision-making process during such scenarios. Our aim is to determine vaccine sentiments based on both temporal and geographical patterns.
