    How anti-vaxxers set the stage for pandemic conspiracies

    How anti-vaxxers set the stage for pandemic conspiracies

    When the pandemic began more than a year ago, there wasn’t much hope of a vaccine against a disease that had just emerged in humans. Now, though, millions of people around the world are getting vaccinated against COVID-19 every day.

    But not everyone will get the shot. While the vast majority of Canadians say they’ll get vaccinated, there are still about 21 percent of people who are vaccine hesitant. About seven percent of them say they will not be vaccinated. As COVID spread around the world, so too did the anti-vaccination movement.

    In today’s episode, reporter Dalson Chen, of the Windsor Star in Windsor, Ontario, takes us for a journey into the history of the anti-vax movement. And explains why it is still going strong today.
