Albuquerque, New Mexico-Researchers at New Mexico State University believe that health leaders need new vaccination strategies.
Dr. Jagdyshkubchandani, a researcher at New Mexico State University, said:
Kubchandani has been studying vaccine hesitation for months and wants to think about what he can do to convince more people to get the vaccine.
“Vaccination is naturally influenced by race, education and political parties, but there may be other factors as well,” Kubchandani said.
A recent study found that about the same number of Democrats and Republicans were already vaccinated, and about the same number did not plan for it. This is also true for male and female college and high school graduates who are employed or unemployed.
But then a breakthrough.
“We found that anyone who died from an infection in a family member, neighborhood, family member, or friend was more likely to receive the vaccine,” said Kubchandani.
He said the number of people vaccinated after someone near them was infected with the virus surged by 30%.
“It’s also a shame that you have to wait for someone in your neighborhood to die, or among your family and friends, before you can accept the vaccine,” Kubchandani said.
That’s not a surprising conclusion, but he hopes it encourages health leaders to change their story about vaccines.
“Therefore, our research-based message not only emphasizes vaccines, but also talks about the dangers of not being vaccinated and what COVID actually causes to people,” says Kubchandani. I did. Are you really worried about getting infected? Is it possible to get infected? Is anyone in the household infected? And, as you know, those are things we have to discuss and tell people how at risk they are. “
