about

Vaccine reluctance and refusal are no longer limited to the margins of society. Debates around vaccines'' necessity - along with quesitons around their side effects - have gone mainstream, blending with geopolitical conflicts, political campaigns, celebrity causes, and "natural" lifestyles to win a growing number of hearts and minds.
