When it comes to vaccine hesitancy, it may originate out of several things. Vaccine-related myths, rumours, doubts, and the increasing number of breakthrough infections can all contribute to your already-existing scepticism against COVID vaccines.
Additionally, vaccine side effects may also contribute to your trials and tribulations. While it fades away in a day or two, side effects from vaccines can take a toll.
