For a Doctorate of Nursing program discussion post. I need to respond to this classmate’s post. I need 1-2 references to go with this. My
opinion is for a Vaccine mandate. Write a response to the Classmates post.
I will attach the rubric for responding to discussion post.
Classmates post that I need to respond to:
1. While we have personal opinions about almost everything in our daily lives, how did this one mandate make you practice differently, or did it?
In regards to mandates, American have “freedom from personal restraint and a wider freedom to engage in daily life without significant risk of exposure to safety hazards.” The justification for mandating vaccines are reflected by such freedoms. (Gostin, 2021)
As I was not practicing as a Family Nurse Practitioner during the time of the mandate, I did not have to deal directly with the opinions and concerns of actual patients. However, several friends and family members did request my personal opinion on the matter. I would always answer the same, “I ask myself, would those that have already died choose the vaccine or death, had they been given the choice we have today.” The response from those asking usually entailed the obvious answer, that the vaccine would have likely been chosen.
2. There was a fair amount of distrust regarding the vaccines, especially in this area. What historical events played a part of this? How do we as APRNs approach this?
Technology has been one of the greatest enemies in the push against covid vaccinations. The mere use of the internet, smart devices allowing text messages, and social media. Technology allows the spread of misinformation to be rapid and vast, meaning it can be done within seconds and reach millions in the process.
Many individuals felt that the vaccine was not necessary as Covid-19 was a hoax, they also felt the virus was just a form of influenza, and some thought the government was the cause of the virus. Unfortunately, distrust of vaccination began before the pandemic. For instance, many parents became anti-vaxers secondary to reports that Autism is the result of childhood vaccinations.
As human beings, I feel as though we should have the right to choose what medications are injected into our bodies. Although, as a practitioner, I also understand the seriousness of the situation that the entire world faced by allowing such a choice. The APRN should understand that there will always be patients that are willing to accept, some that will refuse regardless of what they are told, many that are fearful and need reassurance, and those that just want or need more information. It is the provider’s duty to research and obtain the most factual and updated information available to assist patients with making the best decision possible.
3. What ethical/historical considerations do you think played a part in vaccination rates?
In addition to misinformation, many were hesitant to accept vaccination due to several other reasons. A study was conducted in Portugal to determine factors associated with vaccine hesitancy. The factors that were identified included perception of contracting Covid-19 was of low risk, health authorities did not provide consistent information related to the pandemic, potential complications of vaccination, and uncertainty of efficacy and safety of the vaccines. (Soares et al., 2021) The reasons for hesitancy in America were much of the same as evidenced by continuous reports through social media and news networks.
4. What do you think we have learned, as a medical profession, about vaccines, mandates, and what the future will look like as a result if we should have to do this again? How does your role, or future role, as a PMHNP address this without bias?
Likely, those within the medical profession truly understand the magnitude of power that social media boasts. The majority of people initially seek advice from internet sources before contacting healthcare professionals. As issues arise, providers must learn to use social media for the benefit of their patients. The professionals must learn to fully engage such resources to help curb the spread of misinformation for those seeking advice.
