Vaccination skepticism is higher
among registered Republicans, white people without a college degree, and lower-income households. Apparently, wealthy educated liberal white people are less skeptical
of the vaccines.
However, misinformation remains. Many people do not understand the science. People fear the unknown.
“The coronavirus vaccines aren’t 100 percent effective. Vaccinated people may still be contagious. The variants may make everything worse.”
This is true and misleading. Nothing is 100% effective. But it substantially lowers the risk of any serious illness.
The one-shot coronavirus vaccine made by Johnson & Johnson also provides strong protection against severe disease and death from Covid-19. The vaccine will reduce the spread of the virus by vaccinated people, according to new analyses posted online by the FDA.
The weekly vaccine supply to states will increase by one million doses, to 14.5 million, the White House said.
Please get vaccinated when you can. Global deaths from the coronavirus fell by 20 percent last week.
