AN American football team, the Minnesota Vikings, have brought in an expert to tackle ‘vaccine hesitancy’ in the team.
Apparently, a few of those superfit, healthy young players committed the cardinal sin of looking online for a variety of information about the jabs rather than listening solely to state-approved media. As a result they have decided not to take it.
Now Dr Michael Osterholm, director of the centre for infectious disease research and policy at the University of Minnesota, has been drafted in to talk to the players about the vaccine and alleviate their concerns.
Is this a push too far by the Minnesota Vikings? What happens if one of the players succumbs to this pressure and then has an adverse reaction to the vaccine? Will the player and his family, who the coach claims to care so much about, be compensated?
Feel free to discuss this or anything else on your mind.
