While 63% of Californians are now vaccinated against COVID-19, in many parts of the state health officials are struggling with how to convince those who are reluctant.  Forum looks at the varied reasons for vaccine hesitancy by training a spotlight on Fresno county, where less than half of residents are fully vaccinated. We check in with residents about how they’re making vaccine decisions and talk with health officials about what they’re doing to change minds, address concerns and improve access.
