The Anti-Vax Movement: How It Threatens Global Health is part of a series of unique events celebrating the Science Museum’s major new galleries Medicine: The Wellcome Galleries that opened in November 2019.
Immunisation is one of medicine’s greatest success stories and currently prevents 2 - 3 million deaths each year, but rising numbers of people are refusing vaccinations for themselves and their children based on misinformation. In this panel discussion, medical professionals and experts in infectious disease come together to examine the history of and science behind vaccination, to celebrate its success and to explore the root causes of vaccination conspiracy theories.
