Mississippi has been administering coronavirus vaccines since the beginning of the year, but only 100,000 people have gotten their first doses. According to Fortune magazine, roughly 5% of Americans have received their first doses. At that rate, it will take another 20 months to complete this process, which is hardly what we envisioned late last year when the FDA began approving vaccines.
I have three issues of concern: first, why has the rollout been slow? Second, why have some people expressed reluctance to take the vaccine? Third, should certain professions and organizations be allowed to require vaccination?
