The coronavirus pandemic has re-introduced the conversation around mandatory vaccinations and, believing that their civil liberties are at stake, many have taken to social media to discuss the matter and their fears about it. But there are also large groups of people that are spending hours each day to flag anti-vaccine content on social media platforms and they’re about to organize.
With the pandemic and lockdowns having had a large effect across the world, governments as well as pharmaceutical companies are now ramping up their efforts to develop a vaccine at the soonest.
That being said, a recent survey found that 7 in 10 people worry about the safety of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Mandating that people must get inoculated with “new” vaccines is (still) pretty much a no-go in any semi-decent democracy. So what else can be done? Maybe convincing people to take part of their own volition?
