How to Inform Vaccine Hesitant Individuals about the Potential Risks Associated with Vaccination
Keywords:Perceived risk, vaccine hesitance, covid-19
AbstractDespite their strong safety profiles, paradoxical fear about vaccine safety is the primary driver of vaccine hesitancy. We believe that vaccine-hesitant individuals inaccurately perceive the risk associated with vaccination due to the lack of appropriate benchmarks. If presented with appropriate safety comparison data, vaccine-hesitant individuals may reassess the potential risk associated with vaccination and change their minds.
