Remember it is to fight against their negative ideas about vaccine not to support their ideas.
As COVID-19 vaccines become more available, you may find yourself having conversations with friends and family members about the vaccine. Some may be excited and hopeful about getting the vaccine, while others may be hesitant. For this assignment, we are going to practice finding reputable information about COVID-19 vaccines.
The assignment requires two posts, each completed individually.

A friend has been posting claims about the COVID-19 vaccines on social media.
Pick one of the claims below that your friend posted. Use the claim as the title of your discussion post. Before you pick a claim, check the discussion board to make sure that no one else has posted about the same claim.
