Vaccine hesitancy – the global impact on immunisation programs

Posted on 29 Sep, 2015

For too long the global health community has neglected the importance of recognising the “risk as feelings” domain when dealing with the vaccine confidence according to Dr Heidi Larson from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The causes and impact of vaccination hesitancy are complex and context-specific but this growing phenomenon can not be ignored.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Commission joined forces to tackle the issue at the first global vaccination summit. Although many of them live in developing countries with poor access to vaccines, scientists are worried that anti-vaccination campaigners in the developed world are spreading misinformation on social media. So what’s the cure for their scepticism?

Emilie Karafillakis, research fellow for the Vaccine Confidence Project, speaks to France 24 about the rising anti-vaccination sentiment that is rising throughout Europe, especially in France where a recent study revealed 1 in 3 citizens believe vaccines are unsafe.

In this episode of Take as Directed, J. Stephen Morrison speaks with Dr. Heidi Larson on why vaccine confidence is currently in crisis, and how this has fueled outbreaks such as measles and the persistence of polio in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
