Political Party Affiliation Can Boost COVID-19 Booster Vaccine Acceptance

Steven J. Schweon, Infection prevention consultant, Saylorsburg, PA

South Dakotan nurses who identified as Democrats were more likely to receive a COVID-19 booster when compared to independents and Republicans. “Older” nurses (age range not defined) and nurses receiving a flu vaccine during the previous influenza vaccine season were also more likely to receive the COVID-19 booster vaccine. In conclusion, the authors note vaccine acceptance is a now a personal health and political decision.
