Hesitancy to take a stab at the jab

Posted on: Fri 6 Aug 2021

Governments around the world have turned to vaccination as the pathway out of the medical, economical and social crises caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr Katie Attwell, a senior lecturer at The University of Western Australia’s School of Social Sciences and mandatory vaccine policy specialist, joins Breakfast’s Soph Landau and Paul Davies to discuss why some people might be hesitant to get vaccinated.
