The impact of anti-vaccination culture on the population and subsequent representation

Analyse how anti-vaccination culture is encouraged and mis-information is spread, by forms other than word-of-mouth, especially the role of social media. How can incorrect factual information be so widespread and such a current issue when access to internet and correct information etc. is even more available than ever.

  • I should point out that mistrust and fear of vaccines is nothing new. Anti-vaccination sentiments have been around for as long as vaccines themselves have been. The problem nowadays is that the internet encourages people to segregate into echo chambers that reinforce whatever views they already have. So, the correct information is out there, but people who already dislike vaccines aren't looking for it. – Debs 3 years ago
  • I think this is a great topic but can you expand on this with an example of literature, film that a person writing for this topic might start with. What do you think the answer to your question "How can incorrect factual information be so widespread" might be as a result? Don't be afraid to explore possible answers that a writer might use... – Elpis1988 3 years ago
  • This issue will receive a great deal more attention once a vaccine to COVID-19 is developed. We will see lots of stories on people in nonsense political and Constitutional language mode talk about why they will not take the vaccine. I suspect what will happen is a vast number of these people will be confronted by their employers giving them the option to take a vaccine or lose their jobs. In addition, I suspect we will see pressure placed on parents from school districts. In other words, any essay addressing this needs to examine that people who say they will not take a vaccine will not be as completely free of pressures as they may hope. – Joseph Cernik 2 years ago
