I hear people say that they're afraid they'll get sick
Caroline Lara
56:58
declination, due to thinking they would get really sick
Michelle Di Miscio
56:58
So very many people say >> they don't want to get sick, that it will give them the flu. It's not usually my community that says that.
Francesca Holme
57:08
I hear people say that it doesn't work
Jackie Brown
57:10
People have lots of questions, some fear and lack of knowledge about the flu.
Leinani Swanaset
57:25
Mainly conspiracy theories they have heard from friends or online.
Katrina Goering
57:29
Concerns about flu vaccine negativley affecting asthma
Raquel Campuzano

Most people are concerned about safety and efficacy of vaccines. Leading most parents and individuals to decline flu vaccine.
Katrina Goering
58:10
concerns about how flu vaccine interacts with COVID
Leinani Swanaset
59:30
Some never got a flu vaccine when they were younger, so they believe if they start doing it now their body would react differently since their body hasn't had time to adjust to the vaccine.
Michelle Di Miscio
01:03:21
What was that percentage again?
Michelle Di Miscio

Stay away from the doctor's office
Michelle Di Miscio
01:09:13
It's good to have this discussion, because I even have colleagues that have not been willing to get the flu vaccine. We need to have these conversations without judgement, with facts and messages that protect us all.
Michelle Di Miscio
01:12:44
That's where I get the highest arguments >> people don't care or know why a weakened virus or dead virus will not effect them, and they plain do not want ANYTHING external and related to the flu virus in their bodies. How can I prove that a weakened virus or dead virus will not hurt them?
Silva Sarafian
01:15:27
What resources are there for those who are homebound? Are there mobile flu shot options available?
Michelle Di Miscio
01:17:13
I would like an easy, relatable way to prove WHY a weakened vaccine, or dead virus in the flu vaccine doesn't hurt people or CAUSE a bad flu.
Francesca Holme
01:17:21
How do you recommend responding to people who insist that the flu vaccine doesn't work?
Michelle Di Miscio
01:18:20
I have put my questions in the chat twice.
Francesca Holme

Brendy Visintainer
01:35:49
I have been told, depending upon a person's chronic conditions, they may not be able to get the nasal. spray. Is there anything else we need to know about the nasal versus injection?
Michelle Di Miscio
01:38:44
Nasal spray vaccine is not recommended for people living with asthma.
