According to several U.S. media reports, although the United States has made significant progress in the research and development of a coronavirus vaccine, and the U.S. government recently announced that it will vaccinate at least one-third of Americans by the end of February, many surveys show that most of the nurses on the front line of epidemic prevention in the United States are suspicious of vaccination. Even resistance.
According to CNBC News Network and the Associated Press, as pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer have made important progress in the development of a coronavirus vaccine, the Trump administration in the United States recently announced that they intend to vaccinate at least 100 million Americans against the relevant vaccine by the end of February, even if Trump was no longer the President of the United States by that time.
An epidemic prevention expert from the Trump administration also said that among the 100 million Americans who account for about one-third of the total population of the United States, they will give priority to vaccinating vulnerable people such as the elderly and medical staff fighting on the front line of the epidemic.
However, according to a local station on ABC News, the American Nurses Association, an authoritative nursing agency in the United States, found in a survey that only 34% of the nearly 13,000 nurses interviewed were willing to receive the coronavirus vaccine, while 36 people who were unwilling to get the vaccine and hesitating respectively % and 31%.
A series of recent reports released by other local media in the United States also show that there are indeed a large number of nurses across the United States who resist the vaccination of the coronavirus, and their emotions are because the Trump administration’s previous series of poor performances in epidemic prevention make them unable to trust this kind of “hurried” vaccine. So I don’t want to be the first batch of “white mice”, but I would rather wait another year to fight.
Some medical staff also said that they would not dare to vaccinate the vaccines until Fauci, a respected epidemic prevention expert in the United States, said that these vaccines were “safe and effective”.
Naturally, this matter also worried various medical professional institutions in the United States.
For example, the American Nurses Association said in an article published on its official website that nurses in the United States urgently need to receive popular science in vaccines, and this matter must be listed as a “one priority” in vaccination.
“This work is crucial, not only about the protection of frontline healthcare workers, but also about how their behavior and perception will affect the public [of the vaccine],” the article wrote.
Some doctors and experts also said in an interview with the U.S. media that it is difficult to persuade the public to actively cooperate with the vaccination process if they cannot be persuaded to be assured of vaccination.
They also stressed that although the development of vaccines in some major pharmaceutical factories is very fast, it does not sacrifice the safety it deserves.
