Resistance to the COVID Vaccine Is Coming From a Surprising Sector -- Frontline Healthcare Workers

What is behind the opposition from those tabbed to be the first recipients?

Once the announcement was made weeks ago that there were two versions of the COVID-19 vaccine ready for the market, instantly the issue became politicized. Throughout December, there was distemper about Trump’s year-end prediction coming true, leading to claims it may not be safe from sources such as Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris. At the same time, we had medical experts in the journalism field declaring how everyone should be required to take it and what retributions should follow for those who defer.

Well, those social extremists are facing a curious contradiction. Reports are the very group that was declared as the needed initial beneficiaries — healthcare workers — are seeing a growing number of their field deciding to forego taking the vaccine. Streiff initially noted last week there were select instances where some facilities saw staff deciding against the vaccine, but now it is being seen in more sectors of the country, and in significant amounts.

The numbers show this is not a small number, nor an isolated matter.
