Don’t question their intelligence

Resist the urge to question the intelligence of individuals who don’t want the vaccine. Certainly don’t call them dumb, or speak to them in a condescending tone. When have you ever been more inclined to listen to what someone has to say, when they speak to you like you’re dumb? That’s a surefire way to get anyone to stop listening to you. You probably have friends who have different beliefs from you on many things, from gun control to religion to whether or not humans should move to Mars. If you can speak to them with a respectful tone, then you can speak to an unvaccinated friend that way, too. Only respect will nurture productive conversations.
