This would probably be my least favourite “debate”. Growing up with a doctor as parent and grandparent, it has always upset me that some people don’t trust their doctors, or worse, are sceptical of the expertise of doctors and scientists who have dedicated years to study and research.
However, it’s important to acknowledge that whenever people have a choice, some will exercise that choice and their reasons can be diverse. Vaccination is a complex issue and emotions can run high in the debate, which can prevent people from understanding each other’s position. Which is what I have tried to do.
