The 4 types of vaccine refusers, and how to sway them
VACCINE refusers tend to fall into one of four categories, researchers say in a new literature review.
They say there are four basic reasons patients are non-vaccinators and different strategies are needed to sway them.
1. Complacency - people who don’t care about vaccination
How to sway them?
- Informational interventions that appeal to social motives, raise risk perceptions, foster vaccine acceptance;
- Debunking vaccination myths;
- Structural interventions such as incentives, mandatory/compulsory vaccination;
