Vaccine Hesitancy on the Rise Among America's Healthcare Workers

0


‘Vaccine hesitancy,’ as it came to be known during the Covid pandemic, was a derisive term deployed against purportedly uneducated and ignorant Americans who didn’t want to just take the word of America’s so-called “medical experts” as they pushed them to take relatively untested jabs without any long-term safety data.

But, it turns out, that the great majority of medical experts that work throughout the United States has either stopped believing in the necessity of the Covid “boosters” due to natural immunity, the mildness of the latest variants, or a general belief that there is no urgency to get them.

This is as demonstrated by the actions of medical professionals and not their advice to the general public.

“Despite the higher risk that the coronavirus poses to older adults, a surprisingly low share of nursing home staff and residents are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations,” Fox News reported on Thursday.  “Only six states are indicating that over 10% of staff members are updated on their vaccines, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”

“Overall updated vaccination rates are higher among residents — but still fall short of the CDC’s recommendations,” the report added. “Only three states have more than 50% of residents with a fully updated vaccination status.”

However, it should be noted that there is absolutely no evidence that getting the latest Covid jabs does not significantly stop the spread of the virus; therefore, the personal health decision of a medical worker whether to get the Covid jab or not has no bearing on the safety of their patients.

Only 2% of health care workers in Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Mississippi, South Carolina, and West Virginia have had their recommended vaccines in the past 30 days.

Vaccination rates for nursing home staff are 3% or lower in Nebraska, Washington, Ohio, Indiana, and Georgia.

Out of all the states, only New Mexico (19%), Alaska (13%), Vermont (13%), Hawaii (11%), Rhode Island (11%), and New Jersey (11%), had health care worker immunization rates higher than 10%.

It should be noted, however, that the at-risk should take special care to discuss the Covid jabs with their doctors, since the statistics suggest they are more likely to have negative outcomes from contracting a SARS-CoV-2 viral variant.

When it comes to residents at nursing homes, the states with the lowest share of fully vaccinated residents are South Carolina (18%), Alabama (16%), Texas (15%), Arkansas (12%) and Arizona (10%).

Among the 50 states, the percentage of residents whose vaccines were up-to-date was the highest are South Dakota (57%), North Dakota (55%), Vermont (55%), New Hampshire (47%), and Alaska (46%).

“Nursing home patients are at a high risk for serious COVID infections, as they are kept close together, are elderly, and almost all have underlying health conditions,” Dr. Marc Siegel, clinical professor of medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center and a Fox News medical contributor, told Fox News Digital.

“While the staff may be low risk themselves, and though the COVID vaccine does not prevent spread, it does decrease viral load at least transiently, meaning the risk of transmitting COVID is lower, at least for a few months,” he added.

As of fall 2022, 96% of Americans had at least some antibodies for fighting Covid-19, according to the CDC.
