Register to join Episode 56 'What is the scale of vaccine scepticism?' on Zoom here.

Following the rapid development of vaccines for COVID-19, successful vaccine delivery will be the most important factor in bringing this pandemic to an end.

In this episode, we will look at the scale of the hesitancy that surrounds COVID vaccines, and the impact that could have on delivery.

Our guests will be Professor Heidi Larson, Director of The Vaccine Confidence Project at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Professor Michael Parker, Director of the Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities, and the discussion will be moderated by Professor Sir Simon Wessely.
