ABSTRACT

From Concern to Confidence: How Physicians Can Build Trust in COVID-19 Vaccines   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Ending the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic requires us to vaccinate as many Americans as possible. The new vaccines offer our best path toward saving lives, opening schools and businesses, and rebuilding our economy. The decision to get vaccinated is a personal one that is influenced by many factors. Research shows that Americans most trust their own doctor for information about COVID-19 and vaccines. People want unbiased facts about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines - and information about whether vaccination is the right choice for them - from their doctor. The nation is making good progress in getting more people vaccinated, but many still say they will probably not get the vaccine. While numerous national and local efforts are attempting to address people's concerns, the single most influential factor will be a 'strong recommendation' from a medical professional."
