"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.

"A montage of the first night of the Democratic convention that happened last night. Here to discuss that with us. John Pence. He's the senior advisor to the Trump Hands 2020 campaign. And if that name sounds familiar, it's because he is the vice president's nephew. Jump ends. Thank you for joining us. Welcome mornings on the mall. It's great to have you here. Thanks for having me. Good morning. Good morning. What did you think of the convention Last night? Night? One The launch of the Democratic Convention last night. What was your take from take away from it. Well, I think what we saw was the continuation of radical ideas. Bernie Sanders, speaking about how we've gotta vote for Joe, because that's going to help us move forward with bigger government more control over our lives and Really? I just was. I couldn't believe the lack of enthusiasm in folks. The pre panel on ABC, for example, just admitting time after time going around at the table. How little enthusiasm Democrats have to vote for Joe Biden and made themselves were even admitting it on national TV. The keynote last night John Pence was from Michelle Obama, the former first lady on DH. She suggested that the current administration A shin is filled with chaos and division and a total lack of empathy. And she said that voting for Joe Biden would result in unifying the country that we need to come back together. What did you think of her speech? Right. Well, ah, President Trump tweeted. You know there's a very late and I mean unenthusiastic endorsement by President Obama for his his former vice president. But you you take care of our country by putting our country first and Donald Trump has proven that with his leadership over the last three years, building an economy with historic low unemployment for every demographic across the country. Before this pandemic arrived. And then, of course, in the fight with this pandemic by marshaling in all of America approach, working with our great private sector and really firing up the engine of capitalism. We have guaranteed that no person in need of a ventilator went without a ventilator and Are now sending ventilators across the world. The freedom loving nations in President Trump's America First policies like the U. S. M. C. A. I was in the area, Pennsylvania last week, you know, 477,000 manufacturing jobs left theory under NAFTA, an agreement that both Biden and in Kamala Harris support Kamala Harris voted against the U. S and a only one of 10 senators to do that. But by putting our country first fighting for free, fair and reciprocal trade, you take care of of all Americans to pursue the American dream and have the chance to greater prosperity, Security and opportunity. And I can tell you the enthusiasm for this president is higher than I've ever seen. You know, we just hit our record 76 million voter contact this past week. We actually knocked over 500,000 doors across the country on Saturday. Ah, and you know Joe Biden, the Democrats are averaging still about zero million doors a week. The contract here and the hard work of campaigning is just It's clear which party has the Momenta MME. And who has really the support and enthusiasm in American people behind them? Very proud that the president's inhuman today speaking directly to we, the people. Meanwhile, Joe Biden will be human it in from his basement on and this is just the contrast that the American people are seeing with With the Republican Party, the party for Freedom and Democrats. Now just the party of Control. You had talked about campaigning and the president is traveling around. There are no rallies. I mean, Democrat governors have made sure that their states will be locked down until after the election. So the president can't go to some of these battleground states to do what he does best. Which is have these huge rallies build up. The excitement has this beautiful visual this great visual So he has to do it differently. This time. The campaign is going to be holding events in our area in Virginia today and this week. What kind of events are these? So they'll be you know, will be in hearing the local guidelines. But like the need this safely and responsibly reopen schools, the president explains in 33 different things sort of guiding. How weaken do that data science and common sense, common sense, looking someone in the eyes and saying You know? Hey, Did you understand that? I just explain that on the chalkboard Did you get it on and having that nonverbal communication? The same applies in the hard work of politics? Today will be in Virginia will be with the co chair of the RNC. Tommy Hicks on Frederiksberg on DH out with in Falls Church in a office field office for Asian Pacific Americans that have done tremendous work in that community in Falls church and registering new voters knew Republicans. For this party of freedom. I You know, I don't mean what we're up against the clock here. But if people want Teo go to join you today from 3 to 4 at the Eden Center, the Trump Victor sent earthy center on Wilson Boulevard in Falls Church. People can show up correct. That's right. You didn't show up, you convince it. Trump victory dot com. I can't make these events. I'll actually be in Virginia Beach tomorrow afternoon.

"earthy center" Discussed on The Rural Health Voice

"The march when the pollen was I, I thought okay I don't have respiratory issues are never fever. I'm not losing taste or smell, but having a whole series of experiences that are more countywide hay fever gone wild or something like that, and I did they do. Well With the movement of people. The ease of spread in the fact that such a high percentage of the American population still has not been exposed to. you're now saying the epicenter of Corona virus move into more rural communities. The CDC is saying this morning states like Kansas and Nebraska and Missouri, Midwestern states are starting to take up in their problems when. When the states in the south west or maybe starting to plateau where peak, and we're also seeing some rural communities in Virginia's eastern shore Harrisburg area friends, Edward Farmville, because of the ice detention center there that's had a wide outbreak. We're seeing significant rural areas in the country in the Commonwealth of that made your a little bit later than some areas pronouncing significant challenges. So thank you for doing this today. Thank you. Offer the work. Did you do to support in every day, but maybe it's never been more important than it is right now and I want to open it up and again didn't question. Take your advice.

So what are the things that very taste been working hard honest to address the OPIOID crisis? Are there specific considerations for mother's impact by substance? Use Disorders. I think that's that's a really important one the.
