Vaccination: Perceptions, Attitudes and Behaviour


Principal investigator


The introduction of vaccines has arguably had the greatest positive impact on health and health care worldwide, alongside clean water. Why then, does this topic cause such a continuum of views and attitudes within our society?

This research project explored the complex and context-specific influences which shape parental decision-making regarding vaccinating their children, and the emergence of values-based, rather than facts-based, approaches which aim to increase vaccine uptake.​​
