IPPP fellow, Andrew Peterson, coauthors editorial in The Hill outlining ways to overcome vaccine hesitancy.
We hope that an overwhelming majority of Americans will gladly roll up their sleeves and be vaccinated to protect themselves and their neighbors. But throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, even simple acts of social solidarity – such as wearing masks and physical distancing – have been rejected by some as an affront to individual liberty. If what’s past is prologue, we should expect resistance to COVID-19 vaccination. Governments must prepare now to address this problem. A vaccine that we don’t take can’t protect us.
