Study: Rural Residents Hesitant To Receive Vaccine — But A Trusted Doctor Can Help

Jan 19, 2021


As of Tuesday morning, the state reports 10,762 people have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in Idaho.

According to a new report, that answer may change depending on whether you live in a rural or urban area. Kaiser Family Foundation researcher Ashley Kirzinger joins Idaho Matters to tell us more.
