Opinion: Vaccine won’t be a silver bullet

“There are several known hurdles that still stand in the way of immunizing people once a candidate – or hopefully even more than one – is determined to be safe and effective. The vaccine needs to be mass produced, distributed, and people need to choose to become vaccinated. It’s this last part that may wind up the trickiest – people may just not take it. I’ve seen an increasing number of people in my Facebook feed talking about not getting the vaccine once it’s available (it seems to correlate with a person’s views on masks). Add in that a vaccine could require a booster shortly after the first dose, and you’ve got a lot resting on voluntary compliance.”
