ANTI-VAXXERS

& OTHER SCEPTICS

6.00–7.15pm, Tuesday 20 October

 


 

Will a future COVID vaccine be undermined by anti-vaxxers? What are the causes of declining vaccination rates? Why does this medical scepticism persist, and how might it be tackled? Or might there be times when scepticism is justified? And if so, how are we to determine when we should and when we should not trust the experts? Rohin Francis, Katherine Furman, and Heidi Larson discuss the causes of and cures for distrust in medical expertise.
