Tackling coronavirus vaccine hesitancy across Orange County

“First, we haven’t fully achieved full vaccination in any of the tiers [of eligible groups],” said Bernadette Boden-Albala, an epidemiologist and founding dean for the University of California, Irvine public health program, in a Thursday interview. … Boden-Albala said in underserved communities, “it’s not that there’s hesitancy per se, but there needs to be some better info, clarification of that info and the process of getting someone vaccinated. It’s not just ‘register here,’ it often takes someone to answer questions — especially in light of all the confusing information about vaccines like the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.”
