"Corona virus vaccine even for free. Psychology professor Delores Albarracin studies behavior and medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champagne. She spoke with our co host, Audie Cornish earlier today about why some people are skeptical of vaccines. We know that it can take years to develop and distributed safe vaccine to everyone. And then, of course, just this week, the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca announced that it was hitting pause on its trial to investigate and unexplained illness and one of its participants. So there are people who are concerned about potential long term side effects that who are worried about this process being rushed. Does that boost people's doubts? And is that wrong? Well, I think it's completely normal, and we should all be looking at side effects or any pharmaceutical product that we consume right. Among those who hesitate 60% fierce side effects 37%. I'm not afraid but into something and will work. And then he had trained per cent who are stone two posers. So the anti Vax group, and that's a small group. So for their folks were fearing side of facts. I think news like the one you're referring to are going to be extremely implants so and they connect with Some pre strong and persuasive narratives and big pharma and we have data. Even my want my own data with colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania, showing that exposure to social media earlier on actually predict vaccination intentions in the domain of full later on, so there's pretty good data that those groups are not trivial. Wait, So help me understand this Essentially if someone sees anti vaccination social media posts that can actually influence their own decision about whether or not to accept a vaccine. Yes, it's similar to that. So he surveyed 3000 participants over one year following the flu season till months. So when we observe is what's going on Twitter. What misinformation about vaccines is being distributed and where So when you look in that, and then you look at whoever lives in a county that has that kind of big pharma conspiracy in this information circulating on Twitter. Are less likely to get the flu shot a few months later. Except That they're not affected if they have discussions in really life, So if they can discuss this information with friends, family their physicians, then they're less persuaded by the misinformation, but otherwise the misinformation they encounter regionally affect them. What does all this mean for the public information campaign? How should authorities. Public health officials go about trying to convince people to embrace the vaccines should one come along? So this travesty In my view should be to communicate a norm clearly. So you need to tell people that everybody wants it. We all like it. We must have it so something quite different from what we saw with wearing masks where there was a lot more. Hesitation in the messaging right and contradictions over months. So clear norm. You also need to be, of course, correcting for misinformation systematically every day through health education in schools and work. Everywhere. I'm seeing an explosion of misinformation and what the whole has referred to as an infant Emmick, and if we don't eradicate it won't make invade difficult to end that coffin 19 pandemic.

We will well rehearsed and was in a situation where that was really made a lot of sense but in situations where you know. That's not the case. Then his long is a guy is bringing his heart to the table. Whether he's doing one your instrument at a time or with a group the end product should make sense. Yeah i don't. I don't buy into the whole all. We got up or guys in a room to do something. That's you know heartfelt. I don't buy into that you know. I think there's some there's a lot of different ways to get resolved and as long as the end result is you know at a high level and there's emotion and there are i think the Like the the i think. What one thing that I think we've probably all four appreciate not make a sound like old grumpy man or anything but like i think we all worked with guys. I work with stevie and a number of other players musicians. Who have a thing that that's onto them. It's almost like their personality comes across in their playing in their field. You know how you can take like five different drummers and having blade boom crack boom crack and they all sound a little bit different you know what i mean in that that one special thing that you know somebody has is kind of a valuable thing to get in recording. I think and I feel like a lot of that kind of almost tangible shit. His gifts lost in a lot of records. These days and and i don't know. I don't know why stevie maybe you can like you probably have a better idea than i do it. It's like i don't hear anything special. And i'm not i'm not just saying eight news eight. I'm just saying in the performances. I don't really hear that kind of tangible personality that we all grew up with like zeppelin records and beatles records. It's just like you can hear the room they were in. You can hear the the the personality of the band and each hearst each player's individual you know Spice and flavor that they brought to it. You know nowadays it just seems very a marginalized in vanilla while you know back back. In the day that's lands in the sabbath sin ores in just goes on and on jimmy hendrix. A birds back they were. They were setting the foundation. They were writing blueprint you know. They were pioneers So anything that's happened sense. you know. h it'll in my opinion. It'll never have the same integrity honesty in the spirit. At at what what. Those cats brought to the table back then mean. That was a right guys. Correct me if i'm wrong was those guys were right they were. They were setting up the whole thing for what's happening. What has happened since. Of course the beatles you know how many groups can you say how come out that are like groundbreaking. Since i mean you can't you can't just an spent so much time in new orleans When we met Our first our first conversation was at his family's business and he said. Do you know who the meters are i. First thing we really talked about like nothing to do with the job it was just was like meters donkey. Miracle yes look bypass. Come and and you know i was. I was somewhere the other day. I am a meters tune. Came on and i'm just like. Oh my god alison. Astronomers still like the pocket is there you hear it. You know it right. No thank you stop. Those guys back then weren't trying to emulate and they were they. Were you know it was for the most part. I don't think you know john bonham wasn't trying to you know man. I got a got a cop. This group you know. Like i got to live up to the kroupa thing that buddy rich i mean. I don't think guys are had that that thing that we have had for so long about you know you know our idols and wanting to maybe just grab a little piece of that history in our in our what we what we're doing you know so. They ensure laurie by they didn't john. Bonham didn't have john bottom in the back of his head. When he gets a drummers john bonham woods is a a curse every drummer. That's ever came out after that because that's not entirely but But you know what i'm saying. We do which is why all that music back then was so honest. Beauty of it was just the honest and there was nothing contrive. Nobody was trying to be anything except what they what was happening. Probably why they will out. It's so different from each other as nobody trust anybody else jimi hendrix The sergeant pepper comes out. And what does he do. He does next show and opens up with sergeant pepper large backstage. Yeah yeah he is still in. The business has been a long long time. He's above all that change. Look at some. It's going to be interesting to see what happens in the you know now. That code has kind of a afflicted or alter the markets Is as the possibilities for either making money in the business or creating new art in the business. I mean now that certainly going to be a pivoting influencers and how people record what they could afford. But what are you guys. See coming forwards. You know whether it's for guys around thirty forty years or somebody emerging into the business as the golden question man i. It's gonna be interesting. I think you know obviously the internet. That's gonna be more than ever before The thing that scares me is like the thing. We were talking about earlier with a lifeless recording kind of thing like cow. I mean it. It's almost like spin the wheel further away from from where it already was now with this whole kobe thing so i mean you know obviously bans are going to be able to go back in the studio and record some point in time without masks and shit but i don't know i think i'm i'm trying to figure out what's next to Because i like a lot of what i do is just doing gigs. And that just went away.
