There was a segment on Wednesday’s edition of “Your World with Cavuto” on Fox News that I wanted to highlight.

Cavuto discussed vaccine hesitancy with Dr. Bob Lahita. The conversation started with Cavuto asking about President Joe Biden’s push for young people to receive the COVID vaccine.

“This is a big problem,” Lahita said. “The demand has gone down and obviously our approaching herd immunity is not going to be reached if we don’t get a critical number of people — roughly 70-80 percent of the population immunized — so we need to increase willingness.”

One-fifth of people would refuse unless required, Lahita said. He added he doesn’t require mandating vaccines, but added we have “hit a bump in the road.”

As for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine blood clot issues, Lahita said it is “exceedingly rare.”

“It’s analogous to getting hit by lightning, but you’re more likely to get hit by lightning than to have these blood clots form in your brain,” he said. “I still hear from patients saying ‘well, we’ll give it a year, we’ll give it two years. We’ll see what happens to everybody.’ That’s not the approach we need in order to stop this virus from infecting everybody.”

Cavuto pivoted to what Lahita tells young people to encourage them to receive the shot. Lahita said the “difficult” population to vaccinate is the people between 25-40.

“They’ve had enough time to think about it. They’ve had enough years to experience the flu vaccine and other vaccines,” he said. “So I think young people are not going to be that bad a group to convince.”
