How to Talk to Your Loved One Who Won’t Vaccinate
Since publishing Denying to the Grave, we have received many questions from people wondering what to say to friends, family, and acquaintances who are hesitant about vaccines. Some of these questions have come from people who were extremely distressed and concerned. This is a large part of what has prompted us to develop Critica, a place for people to come together to have open discussions about crucial health decisions and the scientific evidence that does (or doesn’t) surround them. Our goal is to develop new solutions with you.
In the meantime, hopefully this post from Psychology Today can help.
Do you know someone who’s hesitant about vaccination? Are you yourself confused or troubled by varying accounts of vaccine safety? Are you a healthcare professional who has faced vaccine resistance in your office? We’d love to hear from you. Comment on this post or contact us here.
