Ask them (kindly) to explain their fears

Many vaccinated individuals are not hearing out anti-vaxxers. And with any two groups who stand on vastly different sides of an issue, yelling at one another – either directly in person, through aggressive protest signs, or through social media rants – does not lead to productive conversations. If anything, it pushes either side further to their side. Why would anyone trust the opinions of a group that acts like bullies? Ask your unvaccinated friends to share with you their concerns about the vaccine. You might be able to dispel some of the myths they believe. You might not. But speaking to them in kind and hearing them out might make them more amenable to hearing you out.
