Addressing COVID vaccine hesitancy

This is a new study from our board member Donald Redelmeier et al, addressing COVID vaccine hesitancy. It found that persons who did not get their vaccination had a 72% increase in traffic risks. The theory is that those who neglect public health guidelines may also neglect traffic safety. The observed risk is larger than diabetes and second only to alcoholism and provides another argument to support COVID vaccination.
