Who’s immune to fake news? Addressing patient motivation and vaccine hesitancy
Misinformation regarding vaccines, lack of understanding regarding their important benefits, and limiting fears and beliefs are factors that present challenges to vaccination. The amount of misinformation about vaccines circulating on the Internet in recent years has generated a worrying level of hesitancy or outright opposition to the use of vaccines by growing anti-vaccination groups in many countries. This has been associated with the return or increase of diseases such as measles and whooping cough. Pharmacists play a critical role in building confidence in vaccines and providing evidence-based advice.
