COVID-19 vaccine misinformation hinder efforts to achieve herd immunity

One Toledoan believes vaccines are unnecessary, despite science that says otherwise.

Toledo resident April Marie says she, most-definitely, will not receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

TOLEDO, Ohio — With the release of the COVID-19 vaccine, many are falling victim to misinformation they come across on social media and that has resulted in hesitation with regard to receiving the shot. Toledoan April Marie says she, most-definitely, won’t be vaccinated.

None of the statements made by Marie during our interview were accurate, which has been determined based on CDC data and vaccine fact sheets. Health officials strongly recommend that you receive the vaccine, although it is a personal decision.

I have decided against posting our interview, as it would not be of benefit to you, the viewer.
