Try to convince the American people that they can choose that way
What is the best way to convince millions of Americans who have not yet been vaccinated against Covid-19?
Reassuring public service announcements regarding the safety and effectiveness of vaccines have proliferated. However, more and more people are beginning to realize that more information is needed to influence uncertain factors.
In a recent random survey experiment conducted by the University of California, two seemingly powerful incentives emerged.
About one-third of the unvaccinated population said that cash payments would make them more likely to be vaccinated. This shows that some governors may be on the right path. For example, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice recently announced that if young people are vaccinated, the state will issue them a $100 voucher.
Similarly, people who were asked whether to receive vaccination greatly increased their willingness to receive vaccination compared to those who were told that they still had to receive vaccination.
In the past 10 months, the University of California has interviewed more than 75,000 people. This collaboration between physicians and social scientists can measure people’s political and economic experiences and attitudes towards the pandemic, while recording their physical and mental health and well-being.
