Vaccine reluctance and refusal are no longer limited to the margins of society. Debates around vaccines’ necessity — along with questions around their side effects — have gone mainstream, blending with geopolitical conflicts, political campaigns, celebrity causes, and “natural” lifestyles to win a growing number of hearts and minds. Today’s anti-vaccine positions find audiences where they’ve never existed previously.

Stuck examines how the issues surrounding vaccine hesitancy are, more than anything, about people feeling left out of the conversation. A new dialogue is long overdue, one that addresses the many types of vaccine hesitancy and the social factors that perpetuate them. To do this, Stuck provides a clear-eyed examination of the social vectors that transmit vaccine rumors, their manifestations around the globe, and how these individual threads are all connected.
