Moral Obligation, Epistemology and Public Health: The Case of Vaccine Hesitancy

The WHO lists vaccine hesitancy as a top ten global threat. This project looks at vaccine hesitancy as an understudied problem at the intersection of ethics and epistemology. The goal is to develop a framework for assessing both the moral and epistemic dimensions of vaccine hesitancy, to improve our understanding of the moral and epistemic risks associated with medical misinformation, and to develop recommendations for the improvement of vaccine science communication.
