2 If you’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19, you know it can be a big relief. And you may be eager for your friends and loved ones to take advantage of that opportunity too. But some people are hesitant. And it can be difficult to know how to have a conversation about what’s holding them back. This is new territory for all of us, after all. If you’re ready to dive into those conversations, though, your support can make a difference—if you do it in a positive way. Here are some tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other experts: 1 Listen without judgment. It’s normal to have questions or concerns about new vaccines. Before you were vaccinated, you may have had some doubts at first too. It’s important to acknowledge any concerns your loved one has and try to understand them. Try to ask open-ended questions and really listen to the answers without interrupting. Remember: The goal is not to win an argument. It’s to learn what the other person is worried about and to offer information that could put their mind at ease.
