1.Young People Affected by Online Rumors Fearing Side Effects of CCP Virus Vaccine, Refuse Vaccination

According to Hebei Shinbun, on the 23rd, vaccination against the CCP virus for people under 64 years old is in full swing in Tohoku, Japan. Still, the younger generation is apparently reluctant to get vaccinated. This is due to various rumors spreading around about the effects and side effects of the vaccine, questioning the benefits of vaccination. Experts call for the dissemination and acceptance of science-based information. The rejection of vaccination is particularly evident among people whose information relies mainly on the Internet and social media platforms. Various information is mixed in newspapers, television, and other media, making it impossible to judge the truth. According to the survey, it was found that the younger generation in their twenties and those who lack confidence in the government, and those who have no experience with influenza vaccination tend to refuse to receive the CCP virus vaccine. And according to a survey conducted by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, young people and women are more likely to have symptoms such as pain and fever after receiving the CCP virus vaccine.
