Missouri governor says door-to-door vaccine push would not be effective
That’s a tweet from Missouri Governor Mike Parson on Wednesday. This, after one official noted the effort to combat the coronavirus could include door-to-door promotion of the vaccine.
The state is combating an influx of coronavirus cases. Missouri asked for help last week from the nearly formed federal “surge response” teams. Public health officials blame the increase on the fast-spreading delta variant and deep-seated concerns about the vaccine.
On Thursday, White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeffrey Zeints said that the best people to talk with about vaccinations are “local trusted messengers.” This would include doctors, faith leaders and community leaders, who may go door to door.
Parson has urged people to get the vaccination. Instead of enacting restrictions to control the virus’ spread, he has asked residents to take personal responsibility.
