reasons for vaccine hesitancy...

Posted by alexandra_k on December 26, 2020, at 12:04:52

i think, in the US, the public perception is that people have a really really really hard time getting the treatments they need / want.

there is also a public perception that medical treatment costs too much and that medicine is driven more by profits than anything else.

i would imagine that those would be the main reasons why people might feel dubious or skeptical about a vaccination being freely (or cheaply) available to them out of some kind of goodness of the heart.

i mean... does it seem plausible?

if you hear hooves... think zebras...

restoring the public confidence?

i'd imagine it comes down to things like transparancy and accountability and things like that.

improved or increased access to education and things like that. for better understanding of information. following along analysis. opportunities for meaningful particpation in improving the situation.

rather than feeling like a few are profiteering while the masses bear most of the costs.

generally. outside health contexts. but also within the health sector.

people are wary of being lied to and exploited. i wonder why.

i don't wonder why.

they would be stupid not to be worried. given history. given many facts about present inequality and so on.

people say about politics getting in the way of the science... but you can't leave the politics out of the science. you can't leave aside who is profiting / increasing in power in the name of science and who is listened to and respected in the name of science and the like.
