Corona’s vaccination campaign in the US is advancing at a rapid pace. It is being told that so far more than 10 lakh people have been vaccinated with Corona. Actually, the US has approved the vaccines of two companies Pfizer and Moderna for emergency use. Pfizer’s vaccine was first approved, under which the vaccination campaign began, and later Moderna’s vaccine was also approved. However, it is being claimed that there are many people in America who do not want to get Corona vaccinated.
According to a survey conducted on 12,648 American adults from November 18 to 29, nearly 4 out of 10 American citizens say they will not ‘definitely’ or ‘probably’ take the vaccine. The survey was conducted by Pew Research Center of America.
This is, however, better than the results of the survey conducted in September which revealed that about 50 per cent of the people surveyed were thinking about not taking the vaccine. But this figure is still less than what it should be for adequate security of the country. According to experts, to get herd immunity, about 70 percent of the country’s population needs to be vaccinated or they should have natural antibodies against corona.
Experts say that one of the reasons for not taking the Corona vaccine is that the research and development of the Kovid vaccine has been done in just eight months, whereas scientists usually spend years developing any vaccine and examining its effects, etc. They are used. In such a situation, people may feel that these vaccines may not be effective or they may cause some harm to the body.
The way to end the mistrust of vaccines among people in America is to conduct a strong and credible campaign nationally and make people aware of the benefits and side-effects of the vaccine. The US Department of Health and Human Services is considering spending billions of rupees on this effort. According to media reports, although there are some states in the US, who are not waiting for the campaign to be conducted by the Health Department, but have started their own campaigns to make people aware of the vaccine. After all, if there is any chance to return to normal life, it is mass vaccination.
