Mayo Clinic Talks Episode 87: Addressing Misinformation and Vaccine Hesitancy in a Post-Fact Society
Mayo Clinic Talks Podcast
Gregory A. Poland, M.D.
The World Health Organization has listed vaccine hesitancy as a Top 10 Global Health Threat. How do you discuss vaccine myths with vaccine hesitant patients? What are the true risks associated with vaccines? How do you navigate conversation with a patient who refuses a flu vaccine because they had one in the past and still got the flu? Dr. Gregory Poland discusses vaccine hesitancy, immunization in pregnancy, late-season flu vaccines, antigenic burden and the evidence behind single session multiple vaccine administration, and the ethics of health care provider immunizations.
