Exploring Vaccine Resistance Past and Present

Exploring Vaccine Resistance Past and Present

Deborah Brown, Ph.D. will discuss popular resistance to vaccines and other public health measures using past and present infectious disease pandemics as a backdrop. She will discuss some of the public health measures and mandates disseminated during tuberculosis, the 1918 Influenza pandemic, the polio epidemic, and our current SARS CoV-2 pandemic,  and the often present public pushback against these measures. Vaccine resistance is not a new phenomenon and approaches to increase public trust in science and enhance science literacy will be examined. 

This talk is co-hosted by North Country Live, Historic Saranac Lake and the Trudeau Institute and is one in a series of programs supported by Humanities New York.
