Shot in the arm: Professor HEIDI LARSON on the anti-vaxxer movement

A vaccine is seen as the primary route out of the COVID19 crisis, but only half of Brits surveyed by Kings College London say they would be likely to get one. Professor HEIDI LARSON, director of The Vaccine Confidence Project, tells Ros Taylor the reasons people give for not wanting a vaccine, and how we can build public trust in health interventions.


  • “If Facebook closed their doors tomorrow, these sentiments would not go away”
  • “We need a more diverse group of entities to embrace vaccines”
  • “I’m constantly struck at how little people really understand vaccines”
