In this episode of the Research Comms podcast Heidi Larson, Professor of Anthropology Risk and Decision science at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, discusses the causes of loss of confidence in vaccines all over the globe, in the hope that we might develop a more constructive way to engage with people who have doubts over vaccinations. She also discusses the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on attitudes to vaccine safety, and the impact that those changing attitudes might have on our ability to fight the disease.
