Prateek Waghre was quoted in Vice world news on India’s Vaccination drive. The article by Pallavi Pundir argued that India was witnessing vaccine hesitancy. Prateek was quoted as saying:
So far, we have seen no major history of vaccine hesitancy in India. The polio vaccination campaign is a good example of that. What’s happening during COVID-19 pandemic, however, is that narratives are changing much faster. The way things have been unfolding in India—around data availability, contracted development periods, etc—have led to a tricky situation: How do you ask questions without fuelling more vaccine hesitancy?
