Ways to Open Up to the Idea of Getting a COVID-19 Jab
During these extraordinary times, with the coronavirus virus still in our midst, staying healthy and safe has become a primordial concern for many Americans.
Aside from promoting health protocols on hygiene and social distancing, the government and the medical community are working hard to gain the public’s trust in the vaccines that have been developed to prevent more deaths and infections from COVID-19.
Overcoming people’s hesitance to get vaccinated remains one of the biggest challenges facing health experts. They’ve been calling for heightened public acceptance of the newly developed vaccines, pointing out that they are the key to ending the COVID-19 pandemic.
The fear stems from the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) that pharmaceutical firms secured from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), allowing them to roll out their COVID-19 vaccines. Since the process has been fast-tracked, some people fear that the vaccines could have harmful side effects. They point out that vaccines against other diseases underwent longer and more thorough processing before they secured the FDA’s approval.
Explaining its move, the FDA says it issued the EUAs as a mechanism to facilitate the use of medical countermeasures, including vaccines, during public health emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. It says a vaccine can only get authorized if the company that produced it provides the agency adequate manufacturing information for its vaccine to ensure quality and consistency.
The FDA says that it can only issue a vaccine authorization if it determines that the known and potential benefits outweigh the known and potential risks of the vaccine.
Ways to Overcome Vaccine Hesitancy
While people’s vaccine hesitancy will not be easy to overcome, there are at least 4 ways of dispelling the fear and anxiety of getting a COVID-19 shot.
- Be open-minded.
Vaccine hesitancy stems from a fear of the unknown, which is fueled by uncertainty over what might happen after you get a shot. To overcome this fear, you need to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines being used today and open your mind to the possibility that getting a shot will reduce your risk of getting the deadly disease. This will protect not only you but your loved ones and other people as well.
- Talk about the risks.
Consult a medical professional about the risks of getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Ask about the possible side effects so you will be prepared if you experience them later on.
- Get emotional support.
If you are hesitant to get a shot, try to talk to a friend or family member about it so that you can get a fresh perspective.
- Educate yourself.
Rather than panic over the horror stories about vaccines, get a more informed outlook by reading medical research about the vaccines. This information is easily accessible online.
