The COVID-19 vaccine: Yes or No?
6pm-6:30pm at: youtu.be/sJ567N8e76I
COVID-19 had a massive impact on our lives and livelihoods in 2020 and possibly 2021. With the emergence of the COVID-19 virus which led to a pandemic, pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer and Astrazenca developed vaccines with the help of BioNTech and Oxford. These vaccines aim to boost our herd immunity and in turn help the whole world control the spread of the virus. However, it isn't all plain sailing from here as vaccine hesitancy among the people of the UK is significant. To analyse this, we looked at some of the trends in vaccine hesitancy among certain communities via official surveys and Instagram polls.
