Vaccines: fighting prejudices through information

Vaccine communication is a complicated affair. On the one hand, the risk of oversimplification or making mistakes is always present; on the other, communicators, politicians, doctors and scientists have to face increasing skepticism on this issue. On Wednesday 10 May, a seminar organized by the Master course in Science Communication “Franco Prattico” will offer an interesting opportunity to discuss this critical topic. In the first part, Professor Andrea Grignolio, from the University of Rome "La Sapienza", will present the theme focusing on a historical perspective.
