Wonderkamer special on vaccination fear

HHH member Tinne Claes edited a special issue of Wonderkamer, the magazine of Gewina. Central theme: distrust of vaccinations from a historical perspective.

We may think that conspiration theories about vaccines are exclusive to this day and age, but in the past outrageous stories and people refusing to get a shot were not uncommon either. Tinne: “Our research shows that trust in vaccinations is about more than facts alone. Succesful vaccination campaigns are not only rooted in science, but also in emotion and superstition.”

The special issue can be ordered through the Gewina website.
