Spotted this sign a local grocery store in Toronto. What do you think are the behavioral implications to posting the staff vaccination rate, in terms of impact on the staff, the store, and the general public?

Since we were talking about giving feedback in the context of energy nudges, I thought I would share something I found helpful in providing practice feedback in a healthcare setting. I have referred to this document a few times in my work and recently shared this during one of our seminars.

Not to compete against the amazing BIG seminar series, but for those of you interested in nudging and healthcare, there is a symposium Thursday May 20th held by the Penn Medicine nudge unit:

Thanks for sharing this, @Bradley Langford27. Also, the headline of this talk is "NACI recommends J&J vaccine for 30+, call for informed choice for vaccines." 

All vaccines are not equivalent but have gone through a three-phased process under many regulations and safety protocols. All this is to prevent communities from getting diseases and stop infections. People like her should promote vaccinations and not give mixed messages. She is highlighting a lot of negatives. 

The message should be clear and concise. People have the right to choose, and they will.
