Between the Lines

As COVID-19 vaccine rollouts get underway across the world, many are resting their hopes on vaccines as a pathway out of the pandemic. However, an increasing number of people believe vaccines are unsafe or unnecessary. Vaccine hesitancy is nothing new, indeed it is as old as vaccination itself. So, what can we learn from previous vaccine programmes, about what people’s concerns are and how they can be addressed?


In the latest episode of Between the Lines, IDS Director Melissa Leach joins Anthropologist and Founding Director of the Vaccine Confidence Project, Heidi Larson, to discuss her new book Stuck: How Vaccine Rumors Start and Why They Don't Go Away

They explore the social and emotional factors that contribute to vaccine hesitancy, the role of misinformation, and they look at considerations for more holistic public engagement.
