How to persuade people to take the COVID-19 vaccine
Share this article:
It will inject a microchip so Bill Gates can track your every move; it will turn you into a monkey; it will alter your DNA; it will allow Russia to spy on you.
These are just a few of the crazy conspiracy theories circulating on social media about the COVID-19 vaccine. Governments are not only waged in a war against the virus but a battle with misinformation as they look to roll out vaccines.
While in the UK the Government is battling against ‘vaccine hesitancy’ over more legitimate concerns around safety and critics arguing regulators have approved the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine too quickly.
Indeed, in a recent study by the Vaccine Confidence Project at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, only 54 per cent of UK respondents said they would definitely take the COVID-19 vaccine and this dropped to 47.6 per cent after viewing misinformation on social media. And people from lower income, black and ethnic minority backgrounds were least likely to go and get vaccinated.
So how do Governments overcome these barriers and persuade the public that the vaccine is safe and they need to be vaccinated?
This is where insights from behavioural science can help Governments’ messaging and present a more powerful and persuasive case for vaccination. This will take more than logistics and simple messaging, only with a behavioural approach as part of the programme will the system deliver the 80 per cent coverage needed to gain herd immunity.
As part of the UK’s National Health Service’s (NHS) COVID Behaviour Change Unit I have been detailing the behavioural science insights that policymakers will need. We have developed evidenced-based behavioural policies for each of the priority groups: care home residents and the over-80s, health and care workers, the over-65s and young people.
Our research has found that across all the population cohorts there are significant potential barriers to taking the vaccine, ranging from anxiety to determined resistance, mild scepticism to overt mistrust, and disinterest to conscious non-compliance. For instance, young people are highly sceptical and more likely to believe false information, such as that seen on social media that the vaccine includes a microchip to track your every move or that it contains lung tissue from an aborted foetus.
By using the MINDSPACE framework – a simple tool to diagnose problems and create interventions – we detailed a litany of nudges that should be used to persuade the doubters and hesitant to take the vaccine for eahc group.
Care home residents and over-80s
The barriers to take-up in care homes is the anxiety about being one of the first to take the vaccine, a feeling that they are the country’s guinea pigs.
There is also a question of trust, many of those in the 11,000 care homes across the UK have mental health issues or complex medical needs, with 40 per cent of residents suffering from dementia, and so they rely on the familiar faces of staff.
This is where the messenger effect can help. A well-researched phonemenon is how we trust the message being delivered more when the person conveying it is like us or an authority figure. Thus, it would be best if care home staff were trained to administer the vaccine or known GPs, but if this can’t be done then trusted members of staff should accompany the immuniser. Align known staff with ‘strangers’ to reassure residents. Also use known local GP surgery staff and other known community staff.
Salience – where our behaviour is influenced by what seems relevant to us and to our personal experiences – is also a powerful nudge. Thus, accessible and evidence-based messaging about the positives that over-80s and care home residents are among the first to be vaccinated can be more persuasive with celebrities they trust. This has already been done with Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith and there should be more.
It is vital that having the vaccination is a good experience because of our propensity to accept any default setting and the influence of ‘affect’, where our emotional associations can powerfully shape our actions. This is especially important as everybody will require a second dose. So, being clear on any potential side-effects and providing leaflets and good communication on how to deal with them is crucial.
We respond well to incentives, so rewarding those vaccinated with a badge will appeal to our powerful ego, which can also be nudged by providing care homes with a certificate from an official body recognising when all residents have been immunised.
Social norms are also powerful drivers of behaviour, thus, producing a chart that the public can easily follow showing how many people have been vaccinated each day will active this and show we are all in this together.
Health and care workers
As you would expect, our research has found that health and care staff have a strong desire to return to their pre-pandemic roles and this can be used as an incentive.
A clear plan with time frames should be distributed across digital media showing when health services will start to return ‘to normal’.Health and care workers have been through a lot of stress coping with the pandemic and many have voluntarily gone beyond Government guidelines in isolating themselves from family and friends. To reward such sacrifices and incentivise takeup of the vaccine ‘staff and family parties’ should be organised.
This is a knowledgeable group and research on other vaccines has shown nurses and doctors are more willing the more information they read on it. Thus, evidence on the effectiveness of the vaccination should be provided across hospital and workplace communications and a dedicated webpage, with contributions from relevant experts and organisations such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). The messenger effect can also help with this by using hospital CEOs, medical and nursing directors to champion the vaccine and take it first.
Hospital leaders can also be used to activate another powerful force – commitment, where we seek to be consistent with our public promises, and reciprocate acts. They can send a clear message that the vaccination programme is about staff health, and not workforce numbers, to show they care and are committed to their wellbeing.
Is the fear of the vaccine greater than the fear of the virus? This is a consideration for the over-65s and particularly relevant for black and ethnic minorities (BAME) who were perceived as higher risk but have not caught the virus.
Indeed, research shows vaccine hesitancy is higher among BAME groups and lower income households and with diminished levels of education.
Using trusted channels such as faith groups, charities and community groups is important as well as using messaging that taps into the affect bias to evoke an emotional response, such as “over-65s are over three times more likely to die if you get COVID than someone younger than you”. And use traditional media such as newspapers, billboards and broadcast alongside digital channels.
Use salience by emphasising that the vaccine will allow the ove-65s to return to their normal activities, social life and see their children and grandchildren. They also need reassuring that there will be enough vaccine for their family and friends so they are not taking the dose away from someone who needs it more. This will appease their ego.
While a single webpage on the NHS explaining what to expect when having the vaccine, possible side effects, and how to manage them can help alleviate their fears.
This group ranges from teenagers to 29 and they are least likely to become severely ill, which may lead to a complacent attitude to receiving the vaccine. However, if herd immunity is to be achieve it is vital they participate.
Social media is a key communication channel for them so employing the messenger effect with influencers to champion the vaccination is vitally important. Research has shown how much of an impact social media influencers’ opinions have and it will help dispel the plethora of misinformation and conspiracy theories.
Trust of politicians and leaders is low among young people and so they are more susceptible to misinformation. Any false stories gaining traction on social media need to be identified and countered head on through clear evidenced-based messages from influencers.
Young people have been denied a lot of freedom, with their social life being severely impacted. Returning to this can be used as an incentive with the introduction of vaccination passports for universities, work, attending sports events and going to clubs and concerts.
Alongside these incentives messaging needs to acknowledge the impact the virus has had on this group. Explain why they are lower down the vaccine roll-out and back-up the statements with science, actual research numbers and a link to 'geting your life back'.
Use of affect – where our emotional associations can powerfully shape our actions – can also be used with this cohort by emphasising the regret they would feel if they were not vaccinated and subsequnetly infected loved ones.
By using behavioural science insights each potential barriers can be identified, understood and mitigated with tailored strategies for the different population groups. This will give the UK a much better chance of reaching herd immunity and bringing an end to the pandemic.

Persuasive Speech Outline, with Examples
Updated march 17, 2021 - gini beqiri.
A persuasive speech is a speech that is given with the intention of convincing the audience to believe or do something. This could be virtually anything - voting, organ donation, recycling, and so on.
A successful persuasive speech effectively convinces the audience to your point of view, providing you come across as trustworthy and knowledgeable about the topic you’re discussing.
So, how do you start convincing a group of strangers to share your opinion? And how do you connect with them enough to earn their trust?
Topics for your persuasive speech
We've made a list of persuasive speech topics you could use next time you’re asked to give one. The topics are thought-provoking and things which many people have an opinion on.
When using any of our persuasive speech ideas, make sure you have a solid knowledge about the topic you're speaking about - and make sure you discuss counter arguments too.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- All school children should wear a uniform
- Facebook is making people more socially anxious
- It should be illegal to drive over the age of 80
- Lying isn’t always wrong
- The case for organ donation
Read our full list of 75 persuasive speech topics and ideas .
Preparation: Consider your audience
As with any speech, preparation is crucial. Before you put pen to paper, think about what you want to achieve with your speech. This will help organise your thoughts as you realistically can only cover 2-4 main points before your audience get bored .
It’s also useful to think about who your audience are at this point. If they are unlikely to know much about your topic then you’ll need to factor in context of your topic when planning the structure and length of your speech. You should also consider their:
- Cultural or religious backgrounds
- Shared concerns, attitudes and problems
- Shared interests, beliefs and hopes
- Baseline attitude - are they hostile, neutral, or open to change?
The factors above will all determine the approach you take to writing your speech. For example, if your topic is about childhood obesity, you could begin with a story about your own children or a shared concern every parent has. This would suit an audience who are more likely to be parents than young professionals who have only just left college.

Remember the 3 main approaches to persuade others
There are three main approaches used to persuade others:
The ethos approach appeals to the audience’s ethics and morals, such as what is the ‘right thing’ to do for humanity, saving the environment, etc.
Pathos persuasion is when you appeal to the audience’s emotions, such as when you tell a story that makes them the main character in a difficult situation.
The logos approach to giving a persuasive speech is when you appeal to the audience’s logic - ie. your speech is essentially more driven by facts and logic. The benefit of this technique is that your point of view becomes virtually indisputable because you make the audience feel that only your view is the logical one.

Ideas for your persuasive speech outline
1. structure of your persuasive speech.
The opening and closing of speech are the most important. Consider these carefully when thinking about your persuasive speech outline. A strong opening ensures you have the audience’s attention from the start and gives them a positive first impression of you.
You’ll want to start with a strong opening such as an attention grabbing statement, statistic of fact. These are usually dramatic or shocking, such as:
Sadly, in the next 18 minutes when I do our chat, four Americans that are alive will be dead from the food that they eat - Jamie Oliver
Another good way of starting a persuasive speech is to include your audience in the picture you’re trying to paint. By making them part of the story, you’re embedding an emotional connection between them and your speech.
You could do this in a more toned-down way by talking about something you know that your audience has in common with you. It’s also helpful at this point to include your credentials in a persuasive speech to gain your audience’s trust.
Obama would spend hours with his team working on the opening and closing statements of his speech.
2. Stating your argument
You should pick between 2 and 4 themes to discuss during your speech so that you have enough time to explain your viewpoint and convince your audience to the same way of thinking.
It’s important that each of your points transitions seamlessly into the next one so that your speech has a logical flow. Work on your connecting sentences between each of your themes so that your speech is easy to listen to.
Your argument should be backed up by objective research and not purely your subjective opinion. Use examples, analogies, and stories so that the audience can relate more easily to your topic, and therefore are more likely to be persuaded to your point of view.
3. Addressing counter-arguments
Any balanced theory or thought addresses and disputes counter-arguments made against it. By addressing these, you’ll strengthen your persuasive speech by refuting your audience’s objections and you’ll show that you are knowledgeable to other thoughts on the topic.
When describing an opposing point of view, don’t explain it in a bias way - explain it in the same way someone who holds that view would describe it. That way, you won’t irritate members of your audience who disagree with you and you’ll show that you’ve reached your point of view through reasoned judgement. Simply identify any counter-argument and pose explanations against them.

4. Closing your speech
Your closing line of your speech is your last chance to convince your audience about what you’re saying. It’s also most likely to be the sentence they remember most about your entire speech so make sure it’s a good one!
The most effective persuasive speeches end with a call to action . For example, if you’ve been speaking about organ donation, your call to action might be asking the audience to register as donors.
The most effective persuasive speeches end with a call to action.
If audience members ask you questions, make sure you listen carefully and respectfully to the full question. Don’t interject in the middle of a question or become defensive.
You should show that you have carefully considered their viewpoint and refute it in an objective way (if you have opposing opinions). Ensure you remain patient, friendly and polite at all times.
Example 1: Persuasive speech outline
This example is from the Kentucky Community and Technical College.
To persuade my audience to start walking in order to improve their health.
Regular walking can improve both your mental and physical health.
Let's be honest, we lead an easy life: automatic dishwashers, riding lawnmowers, T.V. remote controls, automatic garage door openers, power screwdrivers, bread machines, electric pencil sharpeners, etc., etc. etc. We live in a time-saving, energy-saving, convenient society. It's a wonderful life. Or is it?

Tips for delivering your persuasive speech
- Practice, practice, and practice some more . Record yourself speaking and listen for any nervous habits you have such as a nervous laugh, excessive use of filler words, or speaking too quickly.
- Show confident body language . Stand with your legs hip width apart with your shoulders centrally aligned. Ground your feet to the floor and place your hands beside your body so that hand gestures come freely. Your audience won’t be convinced about your argument if you don’t sound confident in it. Find out more about confident body language here .
- Don’t memorise your speech word-for-word or read off a script. If you memorise your persuasive speech, you’ll sound less authentic and panic if you lose your place. Similarly, if you read off a script you won’t sound genuine and you won’t be able to connect with the audience by making eye contact . In turn, you’ll come across as less trustworthy and knowledgeable. You could simply remember your key points instead, or learn your opening and closing sentences.
- Remember to use facial expressions when storytelling - they make you more relatable. By sharing a personal story you’ll more likely be speaking your truth which will help you build a connection with the audience too. Facial expressions help bring your story to life and transport the audience into your situation.
- Keep your speech as concise as possible . When practicing the delivery, see if you can edit it to have the same meaning but in a more succinct way. This will keep the audience engaged.
The best persuasive speech ideas are those that spark a level of controversy. However, a public speech is not the time to express an opinion that is considered outside the norm. If in doubt, play it safe and stick to topics that divide opinions about 50-50.
Bear in mind who your audience are and plan your persuasive speech outline accordingly, with researched evidence to support your argument. It’s important to consider counter-arguments to show that you are knowledgeable about the topic as a whole and not bias towards your own line of thought.

Persuasive Speech On Vaccination
Being a part of a family that believes in vaccination, I also grew to believe it. Now that I am old enough to understand what it is and can find more reasons as to why we should have it. It made more a believer, that all children should be vaccinated. Children deserve to be safe and healthy. We are all entitled to our opinions, but there are many facts out there that can tell us reasons why vaccines are good for us. I think getting vaccinated would help many people in so many ways. I heard many arguments about vaccines and most of them are positive arguments. If I were to become a parent, I would definitely have my kid get vaccinated because I want my kid to be healthy and free from any illnesses that could come. This is my reason and belief of why people should get vaccinated.
Getting vaccinated does have some risks, however they do save many lives. Vaccines have saved over 2.5 million children (Pro-Con). Around 2-3 million deaths a year are prevented by vaccines (Who). People who are vaccinated avoid potentially fatal diseases including mumps, measles, and whooping cough. If the world as a whole can demolish the most fatal diseases, the generations after them would not have to worry. Diseases can affect the next generation before they are even born. Pregnant mothers who contract disease can potentially cause birth defects (CDC). The prevention of the disease is the first step into avoiding the defects. Vaccinations are primarily known for their ability to prevent disease. However, they also aid is the prevention
Why We Should Not Vaccinate Children
I will be writing about whether to vaccinate or not vaccinate your children. I will then give my own opinions about whether I am in favor of vaccinating or not vaccinating children. It is important to know whether you should vaccinate your children or not and how you should do it. I will be giving facts found from websites and cite the websites. I will be talking about one side and the other.
It is important for all people to be vaccinated to protect themselves from contracting communicable diseases, from spreading these diseases, and from the high cost of treating these preventable diseases. It would make sense to do so. No one wants to contract diseases, or be laid up if they can prevent it. Getting vaccinated will prevent anyone from spreading contracted diseases to others. It can also be very costly when trying to treating a communicable disease that could have been prevented with a vaccine. Immunization will prevent you and others from contracting a disease as well as dealing with all the expenses that come along with treating that disease. Everyone should make getting vaccinated a priority for their health and for others.
Vaccination Pros And Cons Research Paper
We want to make sure are children are healthy from preventable diseases and life-threatening illnesses. Vaccinations are the operative way to ensure that. Outbreaks of preventable diseases transpire when parents neglect to get their children vaccinated. When children are not vaccinated, they can spread the disease to children who ae too young to be vaccinated or to people with weakened immune systems, for example: transplant recipients or individuals who have cancer. This can lead to death or long term complications for these vulnerable people. We all have a commitment to our society, and that is to protect each other and each other’s children by vaccinating our own family members.
Pro Vaccination Argumentative Essay
Since the invention of vaccines, it has created a huge impact worldwide. As a child begins to start school, their required by the state to receive their twelve routine shots. The children who receive all their shots have a greater chance of not contracting any diseases. Throughout the years, vaccination or otherwise known as immunization has been a hugely controversial issue worldwide and whether or not to vaccinate children. However, vaccines are an effective and key role in keeping the human population healthy and safe.
Reasons Why It's Important To Get Vaccinated?
Dear Editor, there are many reasons why it’s important to get vaccinated. One reason why it’s important to get vaccinated is because vaccines will keep your body healthy. Another reason why it’s important is because you put the health of other people at risk if you get sick. Lastly, it’s important to get vaccinated because you’re putting yourself at the risk of dying if you don’t.
Since infants and young children are very vulnerable and lack independence, healthy physical development is dependent on protecting them from outside harms. Vaccines protect not just the child being vaccinated but also other children who may not be vaccinated. Some children cannot receive vaccines due to health conditions, such as child with allergies or a deficient immune system. These children are at risk for catching devastating illnesses when they come in contact with unvaccinated children. When parents have their children vaccinated it is good for the health of both the vaccinated children and other children in the
Anti Vaccination Argumentative Essay
Many people may think that vaccination is a bad thing, that instead of preventing it causes illness, that is not natural. Natural or not, there are many reasons as to why we should vaccinate us and the younger generation. Most of the time children don’t like vaccination because it hurt, but is the responsibility of a parent to seek the wellbeing of his or her child. Vaccination it’s a preventive measure of various diseases. Unfortunately, things like the anti-vaccination movement, the misinformation on the Internet, and the believe that vaccination causes more damage than is worth, have led our society to think that it’s right not to vaccinate.
Mandatory Vaccination Research
Many parents want what’s best for their children, especially when it comes to their child's health. One of the most controversial topics today is whether or not to give children the required vaccinations. By choosing to vaccinate a child you could potentially determine the future for that child and diseases they could and could not be exposed to. The real question is, Why should you vaccinate? It is important for parents to know all of the facts before they make the decision to vaccinate. Did you know that 5.1-6% of the state of Michigan is not vaccinated. There are many people including medical professionals that believe the benefits that vaccines give to the children far outweigh the risks that could occur from not giving the vaccines.
Federal Immunization Policy Analysis
Immunizations can save a child’s life; due to the medical advances that have taken place, kids are now protected from many illness/ diseases. At one point in time, Polio was a horrible illness that is now preventable by simply receiving a shot (USDHHS, n.d.). Immunizations protect not only the individual receiving the vaccination, but others as well. Certain individuals are not suitable for specific vaccinations, therefore, if everyone else has the vaccination, the people who cannot are more likely to be safe from the illness (USDHHS, n.d). Generally, immunizations are safe, effective, cheaper in the long run, and can save families time. Vaccinations go through a series of testing to ensure that the shots are safe and effective; majority of the time, the side effects of the shot are minimal compared to the damage an illness can do to the individual. Vaccinations save time and money because if an individual does not get vaccinated, they are at great risk for acquiring an illness that will lead to more intense medical bills (USDHHS, n.d). Lastly, vaccinations help future generations. Shots have been given to people for so long now in order to fight different illnesses that some have completely vanished and others have become very rare. Like previously stated, Polio used to be a terrified illness and now there are no known cases in America at all (USDHHS,

Against Vaccination Research Paper
Vaccinations help reduce the risk of infections and contracting diseases by having the immune system produce antibodies that fight the disease without causing the disease. Getting a vaccine can help keep a disease from spreading by reducing the number of people who can catch the disease. If a portion of a community is vaccinated against a disease and an outbreak occurs, there is still some protection for the people who didn’t get vaccinated because it is contained. This is known as community immunity. Vaccination is not just for children. Vaccines are safe and protect you and protect from vaccine preventable diseases. By getting vaccinated, preventable infections decrease and people can be
Why Vaccinations Should Be Mandatory Essay
I do believe that Vaccinations should be required because of my personal experiences with vaccinations. While I was a young child many of the vaccinations really helped me strengthen my immune system. I believe that it depends on the type of vaccination if it should be required or not. There is fear and controversy in this because the faith the people put into the government and the medical field. I will go into more details on why or why not we should be required to have vaccinations.

Persuasive Essay On Vaccinations
The first step to understanding vaccinations is realizing what they are. It should be made very clear that an immunization and a vaccination are two different things. An immunization is what occurs after a vaccination is administered. A vaccination is the specific process of administering a dead or weakened pathogen into an otherwise very healthy person. As a consumer, it is important for people to understand that there are many types of vaccines in the world, and each kind has its own unique benefits and risks. The three most common types of vaccines are live vaccines, inactivated vaccines, and subunit vaccines. A live vaccine is the one that most people associate with the topic of vaccination. A live vaccine is host to a weakened pathogen that cannot cause diseases in the person it is administered to. This weakened pathogen acts as a teacher to our body’s cells in how to react if a non-weakened pathogen were to invade our immune system. Inactivated vaccines are those in which the
Pros And Cons Of Childhood Vaccinations
The topic that will be thoroughly discussed is Vaccination of Children and whether or not you should vaccinate your child. I chose this particular topic because it is a well-known controversial topic and I strongly believe that children should receive their vaccinations. Vaccinations are extremely important to not only a potential at-risk-child but also the family, friends, and the community as a whole. Without vaccinations the world would suffer from fatal diseases, illnesses, and disabilities. The mortality rate would without a doubt increase and the survival of infants would become a struggle. Throughout my paper I will thoroughly explain how vaccinations work, review frequently asked questions and concerns, describe the pros and cons, and discuss why every infant should receive their vaccinations.
Vaccination Of Vaccinations And Its Effects On Children
Vaccinations have been repeatedly demonstrated to be one of the most effective interventions to prevent disease worldwide. It was voted by readers of the British Medical Journal in 2007 as one of the four most important developments in medicine of the past 150 years, alongside sanitation, antibiotics and anaesthesia. However, vaccination currently saves an estimated three million lives per year throughout the world and so topped the list in terms of lives saved, making it one of the most cost-effective health interventions available. Modern vaccines provide high levels of protection against an increasing number of diseases and the symptoms, disability and death that can occur from them.

Creating a world free of potential disease and infections in order to protect our youth and for the future eradication of disease sounds like a dream. Nonetheless, goals like this make educating our community about facts and benefits of immunization therapy a pertinent issue. Many times, it is difficult to discern exactly what is indeed a fact. That in turn makes vaccinating a difficult decision; especially when it is pertaining to our children or those we deeply care for.

Vaccinations: Eliminating Contagious Diseases
Since the early 1800’s vaccinations have been significant factors in eliminating many contagious diseases and, for the most part, have been an accepted part of preventative medicine in our nation. Veritably eradicating often fatal diseases such as smallpox, polio, and cholera, vaccinations have been vital in contributing to a healthier and more disease free world.
Childhood Vaccinations : Our Shot At A Disease Free World
The world has many problems. Society has trouble finding adequate protection against the elements, each other, and many other adversities. We cannot fix every problem. We fail to completely survive natural disasters, catastrophes, and even basic problems. We can’t even feed ourselves. However, there is one major problem that mankind is beginning to solve. Vaccines are changing the world. They are becoming vital to our well-being. Vaccinations should mandatorily be administered to all children, especially those in our school system.
Vaccinations And Its Effects On Children
Vaccinations are a substance given to patients that provides acquired immunity to a specific disease. They contain either a live weakened part of the virus or an inactive form created from a dead version of the viruses, causing the body to produce antibodies that will attack the virus if the body later comes into contact with the disease. Thus, a person can reduce the severity of the disease or eliminate the contraction of the disease completely. However, vaccinations have become a controversial topic and parts of the population refuse vaccinations for various reasons. The result is a reduction in vaccinations, causing epidemics of deadly and high communicable diseases once gone due to vaccinations. Although some proven dangers to immunization exist, the benefits to the vast majority of people outweigh the rare risks.

Informative Speech : Vaccinations Should Be Viewed As Essential For Protection Of Society
The intended purpose of this presentation is to provide facts and scientific research that persuades the audience members regarding the use of vaccinations. My intention is that the audience will support the use of vaccinations and consider the facts before making decisions that affect the entire community. My central idea is that inaccurate data exists with regards to vaccination; instead, that vaccinations should be viewed as essential for protection of society, both from extreme illness as well as life threatening, and sometimes fatal, diseases.

Measles. Polio. Smallpox. The flu. Imagine the world when vaccines were yet to be created. There was a time when people lived in fear of dreadful diseases. Thanks to the introduction of vaccines, many of those devastating diseases have been nearly or completely wiped out. Despite these results, for some people, the question remains: should we vaccinate? Today, I will be discussing the development of the first vaccine, global benefits, and the anti-vaccine movement.
Should You Vaccinate Your Child? Essay
The Center for Disease Control describes vaccines as the greatest development in public health since clean drinking water. For several decades, vaccines have saved countless lives and helped eradicate some fatal diseases. The push to do away with vaccines will not only endanger our youth, but our society as a whole. Vaccination is needed to maintain a healthy balance within our country. Vaccines provide the immunity that comes from a natural infection without the consequences of a natural infection. Vaccinations save an ever-growing amount of lives every year. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimated that 732,000 American children were saved from death and 322 million cases of childhood illnesses were prevented between 1994 and 2014 due to vaccination (“Vaccine ProCon”).

The owner of the site is Jorge Cham, who got his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, and was a full-time Instructor and researcher at the California Institute of Technology from 2003-2005.
- Thesis: This pro-vaccination video made by Piled High and Deeper Comics encourages the viewers to have themselves vaccinated by providing statistics and examples of the benefits of vaccines, thereby appealing to the emotions and intelligence of the viewer.
- Preview: Now, I am going to explain how the video shown appeals to logos and pathos through the use of examples and facts mentioned in the video.
- “millions of kids each year get immunized”
- “diseases like small pox and polio now affect far fewer people because of widespread vaccinations”
- Explanation of what a vaccine is actually made of
- “herd immunity”
- TRANSITION: Not only does the video appeal to logos, it also appeals to pathos, the appeal to passion and emotion.
- The fact that the video applies to children
- The image of an older women with a walker appeals to the emotions of the viewers
- TRANSITION: So, we know some benefits of vaccinations, why do people not like them?
- 1798- Edward Jenner, first ever vaccine—for small pox
- Most popular claim is that thimerosal (a mercury-based preservative once common in vaccines) causes autism
- Thimerosal does not exist in vaccines (other than influenza, which infants and children do not receive)
- Those who are vaccinated will not be affected by a person who has not be vaccinated, but an infant who has not had their vaccinations could very much so become ill as well.
- Reiterate thesis
- End with “Why are vaccines your civic duty?”

A persuasive speech is given to persuade the audience to believe what you are saying. It is the most challenging type of speech as you have to convince the audience, and convincing people is not easy.
So how do you write a speech that is sparkling and truly convincing?
A persuasive speech is not only about passion; you should learn how to do it right. Dive into the blog and learn how you can easily write a top-notch speech.
The persuasive speech outline template and writing tips will guide you to write a compelling speech.
A persuasive speech is used to convince the audience with a certain point of view. A valuable idea is important to convince people to listen to you. However, it also matters how you convey your idea.
An outstanding speaker can easily persuade people to believe anything, even if it is technically impossible. On the other hand, an unsuccessful speaker might not be able to convince people with a fundamental and proven fact.
If you have basic writing skills and if you know how to write a convincing persuasive speech, you can easily deliver a successful speech. But, if you haven’t written your speech correctly, you won’t be able to deliver it effectively.
An outline helps you organize your thoughts and structure your speech properly. The following template will give you the basic idea of how a persuasive speech outline looks like.

How to Create a Persuasive Speech Outline?
A good speech outline helps you stay organized and focused on the main point of your speech. Before you put pen to paper, think about what you want to achieve with your speech. Note down on the paper whatever comes to your mind and make bullet points of your thoughts.
Here is a step by step guide of how to craft an outstanding outline for your speech.
1. Choose a Topic
Choose an interesting topic for your speech that immediately grabs the audience’s attention. Pick a good persuasive speech topic that keeps both you and your audience interested.
2. Set Guidelines
As your speech’s basic purpose is to persuade the audience, decide what you want to persuade the audience to do. A speech that persuades the audience to accept your idea is different from a speech that motivates the audience to action.
3. Create an Outline
Not all types of persuasive speeches are the same; there may be different requirements concerning the outline, structure, and format. For example, you may have to write an outline with particular key points and other formatting guidelines.
Usually, outlines are only for personal use, but some outlines are formal, and you may need to submit them along with your speech assignment. However, you need to develop an outline, in any case, to make your speech writing process easy.
There are the following basic sections that are included in each speech outline.
Introduction plays an important role in giving a good impression, so you need to pay more attention to the beginning. Below is how you can write a strong introduction for your persuasive speech.
- Start your speech with a strong hook that grabs the audience’s attention.
- Add some information that helps your audience understand the topic.
- Lastly, provide a thesis statement, which gives the central idea behind your speech.
The body section is where you provide the details, and its length depends on the parameters of your speech. Here is how to write the body paragraphs.
- Start the body paragraph with one of your main ideas.
- Provide supporting facts and evidence that enhance the credibility of your topic.
- Make a definite statement at the end of each body paragraph.
You can write as many body paragraphs as you have the main p that you need to support your thesis statement. Just make sure your information is structured in a logical sequence.
The final section is where you provide a call to action. Follow the given below steps to write a convincing conclusion.
- Restate the thesis statement to reflect on the purpose of your speech.
- Summarize all of your arguments.
- Share the benefits of acting upon your idea.
- Close your presentation with a strong call to action.

The introduction to this fictitious proposition came after Dr Wakefield, a financial investor in an alternative vaccine to the measles , mumps and rubella or MMR vaccine enticed the population of new parents to reconsider their decision. While not every immunisation is 100% guaranteed of having no side effects,the scientific research performed by the Cochrane Collaboration proved on numerous occasions that the MMR vaccine cannot lead to autism. So why are these preposterous claims still making headlines in our society. Dr Katie Atwell,, project and research officer of the WA Immunisation campaign states that a child’s “best defense against the epidemics that used to kill and/or permanently disable millions of children and adults” are these vaccine’s that are available to any newborn citizen of Australia. So please answer me this, why are parents still questioning whether or not to vaccinate and protect their

Widespread vaccination remains the best option for controlling the spread of COVID-19 and ending the pandemic. Despite the considerable disruption the virus has caused to people's lives, many people are still hesitant to receive a vaccine. Without high rates of uptake, however, the pandemic is likely to be prolonged. Here we use two survey experiments to study how persuasive messaging affects COVID-19 vaccine uptake intentions. In the first experiment, we test a large number of treatment messages. One subgroup of messages draws on the idea that mass vaccination is a collective action problem and highlighting the prosocial benefit of vaccination or the reputational costs that one might incur if one chooses not to vaccinate. Another subgroup of messages built on contemporary concerns about the pandemic, like issues of restricting personal freedom or economic security. We find that persuasive messaging that invokes prosocial vaccination and social image concerns is effective at increasing intended uptake and also the willingness to persuade others and judgments of non-vaccinators. We replicate this result on a nationally representative sample of Americans and observe that prosocial messaging is robust across subgroups, including those who are most hesitant about vaccines generally. The experiments demonstrate how persuasive messaging can induce individuals to be more likely to vaccinate and also create spillover effects to persuade others to do so as well. The first experiment in this study was registered at clinicaltrials.gov and can be found under the ID number NCT04460703 . This study was registered at Open Science Framework (OSF) at: https://osf.io/qu8nb/?view_only=82f06ecad77f4e54b02e8581a65047d7.

They protect your future, as well as others. Lastly, you don’t have time to get sick- then regret not getting vaccinated.…
Autism and Vaccines
Both the articles “Vaccines and Autism: A Tale of Shifting Hypotheses” by Jeffery Gerber and Paul Offit and “Autism and Vaccines” by Carol Polovoy focus on factual claims and flaws in studies conducted about the correlation between autism and the preservative, Thimerosal, found in vaccinations. Thimerosal is a 50% ethylmercury antibacterial compound that has been used in vaccine preparations for more than 50 years (Gerber, Orfitt 458). Before the US Food and Drug Association mandated the Modernization Act, in which identification and quantification of mercury in all food and drugs was established, it is believed that infants could have been receiving as much as 187.5ug of mercury within the first 6 months of life. In1999, after the Modernization Act was put into effect, all vaccines were required to have any trace of mercury removed. Parents took this as a sign that Thimerosal caused Autism, and a world-wide movement of fear towards vaccinations began. The first speculated link of Thimerosal to autism is mentioned in Gerber and Orfit’s article, and was discovered by British gastroenterologist Dr. Andrew…
The Pros And Cons Of Vaccines
Vaccines are substance that are generally injected into a person or animal to protect against a particular disease. The advantages and disadvantages of vaccinations have been discussed by scientists such as Shizuo Akira or David Amaral. There have been studies conducted all over the world but mainly in United States and Europe. The main controversy surrounding vaccines is whether or not getting vaccinated is worth the potential side effects. Society is impacted in many ways but the largest way being that these potential side effects can be deadly at times.…
Do Vaccinations Cause Autism?
The vaccines that infants received contained mercury, which is an extremely toxic substance. Mercury is in the preservative called thimerosal. Thimerosal is used as a preservative so that vaccines can be packaged in multi-dose bottles and used on multiple children. The amount of mercury in typical doses of vaccines, given to infants, can be as high as 400 times the amount which is considered safe for adult exposure. National Autism Association (n.d.)…

Reflection of autism and vaccine
The purpose of this article is to reveal the reason that the vaccine/autism controversy still lives on and the importance of understanding this controversy. Since the early 1990’s the incidence of autism has dramatically increased, Researchers claimed an epidemic of autism. Some publications showed evidence that mercury and thimerosal in vaccines might cause autism. However, the opponents of this controversy stated that although "thimerosal is no longer present in any recommended childhood vaccines since 2001", the incidence of autism hasn’t decrease. Some researchers even questioned the claim of autism epidemic. Unfortunately, though the IOM panel found no evidence of a causal relationship between MMR and autism “at the population level”, it couldn't rule out the possibility that it might contribute to autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in a subset of children.…

Attenuated Vaccination Paper
Many parents fear that allowing their child to be vaccinated can and/or will cause harm. One undisputed fact is that vaccines are not considered 100 percent safe. According to the CDC (2014), all vaccines carry a risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) in about one per million children. The ingredients in some vaccines are not found naturally, such as thimerosal which is mercury based (Smith & Bouck, 2009). Some people are against the fact that vaccines are presented as being compulsory, but exemptions are allowed in most states. Natural immunity lasts longer, whereas as vaccine may not last a lifetime and boosters may be required. It is important for parents to ask questions and stay informed. Parents are entitled to know what they are giving their children. What is a possible solution to the…

COVID-19: What we know about the future of COVID-19 vaccines
Today marks the start of the World Immunization Week. The COVID-19 pandemic, while draws the world’s attention to the vaccine, also reminds us of the importance of immunization, which saves millions of lives each year.
WHO is working with partners all over the world to accelerate research and development of a safe and effective vaccine and ensure equitable access for the billions of people who will need it. But even with an expedited process, development of a vaccine for COVID-19 will take time.
The ongoing pandemic disrupts routine immunization services in many countries. When immunization services are disrupted, even for brief periods during emergencies, the risk of vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks, such as measles and polio, increase. Further disease outbreaks will also overwhelm health systems already battling the impacts of COVID-19.
WHO continues to support countries to maintain essential immunization for all vaccine preventable diseases. We issued guidance on immunization services during the COVID-19 pandemic , which provides guiding principles and considerations to support countries in their decision-making regarding provision of immunization services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Question 1: The world is waiting for a vaccine against COVID-19. Could you explain how vaccines work to prevent disease?
Answer : Vaccination is a simple, safe, and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases. Vaccines reduce risks of getting diseases by working with our body’s natural defenses to build protection. When we get a vaccine, our immune system responds, it
· recognizes the invading germ, such as the virus or bacteria,
· produces antibodies, proteins produced naturally by the immune system to fight disease;
· remembers the disease and how to fight it. If you are then exposed to the germ in the future, your immune system can quickly destroy it before you become unwell.
Question 2: News says dozens of vaccine candidates are being research. How long does it usually take to develop a vaccine? What is the process people use to test a candidate vaccine and the process is important?
Answer: Process of vaccine development usually needs a few years or even decades. Once a promising candidate vaccine is identified in research, it will firstly undergo scrupulous laboratory testing and preclinical studies, before the manufacture can apply for clinical trials: 
The clinical trials are bound by strict regulations and take place across three phases:
- During Phase I, small groups (approximately 20-50 people) receive the vaccine. This phase will assess the safety, side effects, appropriate dosage, method of administration and composition of the vaccine.
- If it is successful, it will proceed to Phase II. At this stage, the vaccine is usually given to several hundred people. This group will have the same characteristics (e.g. age, sex) as the people for whom the vaccine is intended to be given.
- In Phase III, the vaccine is usually given to thousands of people to help ensure it is safe and effective for broader use. 
The results of all these studies will be rigorously assessed when regulators decide whether to approve a vaccine. Once a vaccine is approved for use, the vaccine must be continuously monitored to ensure the safety for the vaccinated peoples. 
Question 3: How do we know if vaccination will be safe? I know some people will have negative reactions after vaccination?
Answer: Vaccines approved by competent national regulatory authorities are very safe. As with all medicines, side effects can occur after getting a vaccine. However, these are usually very minor and of short duration, such as a sore arm or a mild fever. More serious side effects are possible, but extremely rare. A person is far more likely to be seriously harmed by a disease than by a vaccine. 
WHO works closely with national authorities to ensure that global standards are developed and made readily available to assess the quality, safety and immunogenicity of biological products including vaccines. 
Question 4: Have human ever successfully curb a pandemic with vaccines?
Answer : Every year, millions of lives are saved thanks to immunization and it is recognized widely as one of the most successful and cost-effective health interventions.
Last December, the world celebrated the 40 th anniversary of eradicating smallpox, which killed 300 million people in the 20th century alone. The success was attributed to an intense global smallpox vaccination campaign, in coordinated with broader public health measures.  ,  Today, we are seeing progress to similar success in polio. With effective polio vaccine and immunization efforts, the world has reduced wild polio cases by 99%, averting 18 million irreversible paralyze and 1.5 million children’s lives. 
In China, the successful childhood vaccination program has been certified wild poliovirus-free, verified maternal and neo-natal tetanus elimination in 2012, verified children under 5 were HBV-infected decreased to 0.32% in 2014, dramatically and consistently reduced vaccine-prevention diseases (VPDs) incidences to historically recorded low level by 2018 (e.g., 2.8 per million population for measles, 2.8 per million for rubella, and 1.3 per 100,000 for Japanese encephalitis), and achieved over 95% national coverage for all vaccines used for infants in 2018  .
Question 5: What is WHO doing in accelerating the development of vaccines against COVID-19
Answer: Researchers around the world are working hard on accelerating the development of vaccines and therapeutics for COVID-19. WHO has launched various working groups to accelerate various aspects of vaccine development. A call was made by 130 scientists, funders and manufacturers to help speed the availability of a vaccine against COVID-19. More than 70 vaccines are in development globally, and several therapeutics are in clinical trials  . WHO is committed to ensuring that as medicines and vaccines are developed, they are shared equitably with all countries and people.
Question 6: What else can we do to protect ourselves while we are waiting for the vaccine against COVID-19?
Answer: As the response to COVID-19 continues, countries must act now protect immunization services, in order to further minimize disease outbreaks and loss of life. New WHO guidelines on immunization and COVID-19 recommend that governments temporarily pause preventive immunization campaigns where there is no active outbreak of a vaccine-preventable disease. But it urges countries prioritize the continuation of routine immunization of children in essential service delivery, as well as adult vaccinations such as influenza for groups most at risk. If immunization services must be suspended, urgent catch-up vaccinations should be rescheduled as soon as possible, prioritizing those most at risk. 
To date, there is no vaccine and no specific antiviral medicine to prevent or treat COVID-2019. Until specific and effective pharmaceutical interventions (e.g. therapies and vaccines) are available, people should continue to follow personal protection recommendations. At the individual level, people should follow procedures for reducing the risk of spread, such as proper hand-washing, covering your nose when sneezing, coughing into your elbow, not to touch your face, and keep practicing physical distancing.
