Washington Post: Even LDS leaders are struggling to get Mormons vaccinated against the coronavirus

Washington Post: Even LDS leaders are struggling to get Mormons vaccinated against the coronavirus. “Less than half of eligible residents of Utah, where members constitute a majority of the population, are fully vaccinated, placing the state in the lower half of the nation. One study revealed that 33 percent of Mormons were vaccine hesitant, with another 17 percent refusing the vaccine altogether. This skepticism, despite encouragement from LDS leaders in the typically hierarchical religion, stems from Latter-day Saints’ embrace of political and religious conservatism in the wake of World War II.”
