Rethinking Vaccine Hesitancy

Dr. Maya Goldenberg

Dr. Maya Goldenberg is an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Guelph. Her research is in philosophy of medicine and bioethics. She is author of Vaccine Hesitancy: Public Trust, Expertise, and the War on Science (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2021) and has more than 30 single-authored journal publications addressing philosophical issues in evidence-based medicine, vaccination, clinical care, and women’s health.

This talk is a philosopher’s rethinking of vaccine hesitancy, arguing that the empirical evidence has been misconstrued to support the position that scientific misinformation is the driver of vaccine hesitancy. This talk will:

  • Argue against scientific misinformation as a driver of vaccine hesitancy.
  • Connect vaccine hesitancy with broader social and political concerns including mistrust of scientific institutions and government.
