About 1 in 6 U.S. Couples Disagrees on COVID Vaccination
MONDAY, March 14, 2022 (HealthDay News) — A new study suggests that vaccine policy appears to be leading to some incompatible partners.
“The numbers in this study may be small, but from a public health perspective — if that’s about 16% of the US population, that’s a huge number,” said study author Karen Schmaling, a psychologist at the University of Washington.=
And people on both sides of vaccine separation rated safety as the No. 1 reason they or their partners would not take shots.
Schmaling noted that partners have a great influence on each other’s health.
More information about COVID-19 vaccines can be found at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
