U of T vaccine centre to fight anti-vaccine misinformation  

May 10, 2019

The University of Toronto has launched the Centre for Vaccine-Preventable Diseases, an interdisciplinary hub of academic research and educational practice to better understand and address the growth of preventable illnesses. A U of T release adds that fighting misinformation about vaccines will be central to the Centre’s mission. “Vaccine hesitancy is a highly complex problem because it mirrors the public’s historically low trust in institutions and experts overall,” said the Centre’s Director, Natasha Crowcroft. “With the return of diseases once thought to be eradicated in many countries, we need a much wider group of experts around the table.” U of T | Globe and Mail (ON)
