Conversations with Vaccine-critical Parents

Kaisu Koski

The documentary is based on interviews with vaccine-critical parents and their home videos in the Netherlands and Finland. It explores the health beliefs and concepts backgrounding the parents’ vaccine criticism, such as their understanding of the immune system and importance of illness in a child's development. The parents' perceptions on health have been interpreted in arts-based diagrams and discussed with a vaccine researcher.
