Science Says: Don’t Fear Vaccines. They Are Our Friends.
As a scientist conducting microplastics research, I am concerned about how plastics can affect human health. In my current research, I’ve developed a methodology to detect plastics in human tissues, which we were excited to complete as quickly as we did given all of the strict lab protocols and restrictions put in place due to COVID. During this pandemic, we have seen a massive spike in single-use plastic items like masks, gloves, shields, etc., all essential for keeping us safe, but worrisome in regards to the impact this will have on the environment.
That is why I think we are all eager for the distribution of a COVID vaccine to end this global pandemic.
However, I was surprised to learn that many people may be hesitant to receive a vaccine. Therefore, I thought I would address some concerns here.
