With the continued spread of misinformation about Covid-19 vaccines, it can be challenging to talk to family members who are listening to it or making health decisions based on it.

So how do you swing the opinion of loved ones or friends who have taken the view that blanket vaccination is not the way to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic?

While hesitancy is not the sole cause for the slow rollout, it is a factor that is fuelled by confusing and changing information and, as vaccination expert Julie Leask says, Australia has a major challenge ahead in that it needs to get at least 75% of eligible Australians vaccinated against Covid-19.
