What's the best way to convince the vaccine hesitant to get their shots? One U of M public health expert says the reasons for not getting vaccinated vary, and the solutions will have to be just as varied.

Today on Stateside, as the delta variant continues to spread in Michigan, we'll talk about the variety of reasons some people are still hesitant to get vaccinated. A public health expert says there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Then, we talk to a Michigan man turns his paddleboard-making hobby into a full-time career. And, we'll hear about the patchwork regulations on using paddleboards on Michigan lakes. Also, the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Artifacts connects the dots between racist antiques of the past and the racial politics of today.
