“Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine. I’m begging of you please don’t hesitate.”
Using celebrities to help lower the burden for adoption of a public health action may not have always worked, as there are many factors that shape a person’s desire for behavior change. Still, the vaccine campaign that Vanderbilt University & Dolly Parton organically put together should hopefully help reduce the burden of the rising skepticism with getting the vaccines in the United States.
According to a recent Harvard CAPS-Harris poll, 41% of participants said they are not willing to get the coronavirus vaccine. The Harvard CAPS-Harris poll of 2,006 registered United States voters was conducted from Feb. 23-25, 2021. It was a collaboration of the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard University and The Harris Poll.
