Vaccination is a health topic that can polarise a community with extreme positions on either side of the debate. Groups that adamantly support general vaccination and those who vehemently oppose any government mandate to make it compulsory. By-and-large these are minority groups. So what about the people in the middle? People who may be wavering in their decision to vaccinate or not to vaccinate? Julie Leask, an associate professor and social scientist at the University of Sydney talks about strategies to engage those who are undecided on vaccination. As a leading policy researcher who specialises in vaccine acceptance Julie has advised the Global Vaccine Action Plan group, which includes the World Health Organisation, UNICEF and the Gates Foundation.
