The U.S. has enough COVID-19 vaccine supply, but not enough demand. Tens of thousands of vaccine appointments are going unfilled across the country.
Anger and frustration can take over when people hear rumblings of COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy coming from their friends and relatives.
But experts say to keep those tempers in check when engaging in what may turn into exasperating conversations. Those uncertain about the jab are less likely to be convinced to get one if they’re shouted at or spoken to in a condescending tone.
Reasons for vaccine hesitancy may include impressions the shots were made and approved too quickly, or worries about the mRNA used by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, says Dr. Zain Chagla, an infectious disease expert with McMaster University.
The number of doses administered each day in the U.S. is dropping and as Jackson Proskow reports, that’s forcing some states to get creative to convince vaccine skeptics to get the shot.
