TEN COVID-19 VACCINE MYTHS SPREADING FEAR

Covid-19 vaccine is thankfully an option now for most of us. For months now we have a chance to end the pandemic.

However, not all of us see the vaccine as a life’s gift. News and social media are spreading myths causing people to hesitate to be vaccinated.

On the other hand, scientists are constantly communicating to the public the scientific facts that are not supporting these fictional stories.

We are in an era of anti-vaccine sentiment, and I think that there will be hesitancy by some to try a new vaccine. It will be very important for public health authorities to communicate what is known about the vaccine and what its safety profile is.

Indeed science needs to speak merely that coronavirus vaccines are to cause bigger benefit than harm. 

Even if many tend to speak about other options, other than the covid-19 vaccine, the reality is that the only other option is to get coronavirus.

So why we still hear people refusing to be vaccinated? Maybe myths come from fear, anxiety, and uncertainty.  

Therefore this episode is about numbering the most common myths we hear and explaining the scientific facts that dismiss them.

Here we will discover together that our fear for the vaccine is not based on science but on fiction

At the end of the day we need to make our minds, so let’s make the decision that will protect our family and friends.

The message that, in spite of the incredible speed, safety has not been compromised in any way in developing vaccines has to be communicated to people.
