Understand there could be trauma there

Do try to empathize with the fact that trauma may be behind one’s choice to not be vaccinated. They may have personally had bad reactions to vaccines in the past. They may have a loved one who had a severe reaction, or even a fatal reaction to a vaccine. They may have had bad experiences with medications in the past. We never fully know what someone has been through, nor can we say for certain that we wouldn’t behave the same way if we had their experiences. So approach these friends with empathy, just as they have for you in the past.
