Global Health Conversation with Heidi Larson and Paul Costello on Vaccine Confidence

The Stanford Center for Innovation in Global Health hosted a conversation with The Vaccine Confidence Project’s Dr. Heidi Larson, a world renowned anthropologist from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. In conversation with Stanford Medicine’s Paul Costello, Dr. Larson discussed her research and investigations into vaccine mistrust and disinformation around the world, as well as her timely debut book, STUCK: How Vaccine Rumors Start—and Why They Don’t Go Away. With more than 200 COVID-19 vaccines around the world racing towards rapid deployment, polls show public trust in a vaccine is waning dramatically at a time when their acceptance and public adoption is most needed.
