(CNN)Could wearing a Covid-19 vaccine sticker after you get vaccinated really encourage other people to do the same?
The CDC designed two Covid-19 vaccine stickers to encourage health care workers to wear them after getting vaccinated.
Wearing a sticker may even give people a sense that hope that we're heading in the right direction, Malaty Rivera said.
"I don't think that the stickers are going to do much to change peoples' minds on their preconceived conclusions about the vaccine," Malaty Rivera said.
"Vaccine hesitancy predates the Covid-19 vaccine and we have a long history of it here in this country and the way to curb that is to dispel myths, debunk misinformation and equip people with accurate information and data to help them feel confident in the process," she said.
