My vulnerable son won't get vaccinated because his sister says "it's a hoax"

DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE the pandemic happened, my daughter has become obsessed with conspiracy theories and is filling my son’s head with this rubbish.

My daughter and son live in our marital home. She’s 20 and my son is 23. I’m a 48-year-old man.

My daughter started reading that Covid-19 was the “work of an elite gang who want to control the masses”.

She also believes that “Covid vaccines are killing people”.

She thinks anything Donald Trump spouts is fact, that climate change is “a hoax” and that “injecting disinfectant” to fight the Covid-19 infection might work.

I’m so stressed with it all.

I’ve had all three vaccines but my son is vulnerable and hasn’t had any because my daughter is filling his head with this nonsense.

DEIDRE SAYS: There will always be a proportion of the population who believe conspiracy theories and these wild ideas take on a life of their own through social media.

If you cannot convince your daughter she has been misinformed, you may be able to talk to your son about the importance of getting the vaccine.

Encourage him to talk to his GP, who would give him their impartial opinion.

My support pack Standing Up For Yourself may help you tell your daughter that her beliefs have no foundation – and that many more would have died without this vaccine.
