Violeta Osegueda, UCI fourth-year medical student and Dr. Daniel Turner-Lloveras, UCLA, write, “We are calling for a unified nationwide task force to address vaccine hesitancy and build a cohesive mechanism that incorporates variations in health literacy, socioeconomic status and cultural backgrounds.
