The medical practitioner said that the hesitance in accepting COVID-19 vaccine depended much on the communication strategy of health workers.
Swomen, who identified vaccine hesitancy as a function of myth and ideations, said COVID-19 vaccine was safe and efficacious.
“The health worker should address himself or herself to the following: Vaccine hesitancy is real; it comes from an unsure face; I will understand why he is hesitant.
“I will provide correct answers if it is due to misconception; I will try to correct the misconception,’’ he said. (NAN)
