Letter: Don’t show shots

There are probably many reasons why many people are not getting vaccinated. Seems one reason, obvious to me, may be just plain fear of shots! Feeding this fear is the incessant showing of dozens of people being jabbed in the arms on national television. I know people with a deathly fear of needles. Too much of anything can be counterproductive. I have had my shots, but I still kind of wince every time I am shown another closeup of an arm being jabbed on my TV. I can see nothing well-intended by that. So why the national practice of feeding that fear?
