Research Guide: Vaccinations and the Anti-Vaxx Movement

Finding Articles

Since the late 1990s, there has been a growing anti-vaccination (Anti-Vaxx) movement. The science behind the group's claims has been thoroughly debunked but the movement has raised interesting questions about parents' rights. Here are some searches to get you started:

vaccination AND "herd immunity"
vaccination AND disease AND eradication
vaccination AND autism
vaccination AND parents
vaccination AND epidemics
vaccination AND conspiracy
Andrew Wakefield



You can also try searching for these terms in ScienceDirect Journals.
