Tim Dickinson of Rolling Stone: Anti-Vaxxer Factor

For many of us, the increasing availability of Covid vaccinations glows brightly, a light at the end of what has been a long and dreary tunnel. For others, however, that glowing represents a falsehood promoted by governmental and medical charlatans conspiring to dupe the public. People convinced of the danger of these vaccines comprise a varied demographic, although they may have some things in common, namely an oversized mistrust of science, the media, and government. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak to Tim Dickinson, senior writer at Rolling Stone, about his piece on the anti-vaxxer movement. We examine the public health threat caused by vaccine hesitancy, look at the characters behind the movement, and discuss best strategies to get more folks to trust science.
