From as early as 1796 and the introduction of the first smallpox vaccine, people have shown apprehension to vaccines. In Maya Goldenberg's new book "Vaccine Hesitancy: Public Trust, Expertise and The War on Science" she reframes vaccine hesitancy as a crisis of public trust rather than a war on science, arguing that having good scientific support of vaccine efficacy and safety is not enough.
University of Guelph Department of Philosophy Associate Professor Maya Goldenberg, PhD joins Cincinnati Edition to discuss her book. She will be giving a virtual talk through the Mercantile Library on March 31 at 7pm.
Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
