This review paper will seek to investigate how the changing climate on vaccinations as it relates to COVID impacts public health, vaccine law and the various factors affecting vaccination rates.
The paper shows that a multitude of factors affect vaccination rates. This includes but is not limited to fear of side effects and mistrust of the government due to the speed in which the vaccine came out. But it is not only people who oppose vaccines that are the reason behind why vaccine rates are low. There are also people who don't get the vaccine because they don't want to find the time. The low vaccine rates can be fought by educating the general public on the importance of immunizations in ending this pandemic. The changing climate on vaccinations also affects public health because it prevents herd immunity from being achieved. If herd immunity isn't achieved cases will continue to rise and the populations that can be vaccinated such as newborns will be put at greater risk. Lastly, the changing climate also affected vaccine law because states are unable to mandate immunizations like they can do with other common vaccinations such as meningitis. Peoples hesitancy to get the vaccine has tied the hands of the state and they can no longer require the COVID shot at schools or workplaces.
