Vaccination Hesitancy Amid Delta Variant Puts Two Groups at Particular Risk

Adriana Belmonte of Yahoo Finance writes an AOL article talking about vaccine hesitancy in the United States. She describes this as a “stubborn issue that is holding back America’s ability to defend itself against the particularly infectious Delta variant in certain parts of the country.” The two groups mentioned are children under 12 and individuals who are immune compromised, that cannot take vaccines due to allergies or do not have an active response to vaccines. As stated in the article, there are “about 57.4% of Americans over the age of 12 are fully vaccinated and 66.4% have received at least one dose, according to the latest CDC data. President Biden has stated that he is hoping to have a vaccine approved for children under 12 in the coming months.” Read more about vaccine hesitancy and the worries by public health officials in the AOL article here.
