According to the CDC, more than 5 million Americans have contracted COVID-19. As the race to create a coronavirus vaccine continues, a new Gallup poll says, “many Americans appear reluctant to be vaccinated, even if a vaccine were FDA-approved and available to them at no cost. Asked if they would get such a COVID-19 vaccine… 35% would not.” A new episode of “What Would You Do?” features a teenager begging his anti-vaccine mom to let him get a vaccine. “What Would You Do?” airs on Tuesday, August 18 (9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET) on ABC.
“What Would You Do?” with Anchor John Quiñones reveals how people behave when they think no one is watching by using hidden cameras to record real reactions to thought-provoking scenarios created by actors.
