The New York Times, which over the past several years has transitioned from being the unquestionable “paper of record” to leftist opinion outlet, the content of which sometimes borders on the laughable, is now collecting information on the persuasive techniques readers may have used to convince social contacts to receive the still-experimental COVID-19 mRNA gene therapy.
Amidst glowing asides on the “protection” afforded by the leading “vaccines,” the Times‘ recent email newsletter asks recipients to share their experiences for a forthcoming issue. “Have you persuaded someone to be vaccinated?” the editors ask.
Persuading hesitant people to receive the vaccine is not easy.
For some people, it’s enough to have a person in authority, like a doctor or health care worker, explain the benefits and give assurances that doses are safe and effective. But for others, that’s not enough — and that approach can even backfire.
So then, how can you persuade someone to receive a vaccine?
We’re hoping you can help us answer that question. Have you persuaded a friend, family member or someone else? We’d love to hear how you did it.
We’re collecting responses for an upcoming edition of this newsletter. If you’d like to participate, you can fill out this form.
