Season 1, Episode 3,  Sep 03, 2020, 03:01 PM

Vaccine hesitancy and vaccine refusal have long been a problem in pediatrics. Last year's measles epidemic served as a signal of what the sentiments could mean for a disease that had been considered vanquished. COVID-19 has halted the lives of many people and many of those people have pinned their hopes for returning to normalcy on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Contemporary Pediatrics sat down with Andrew J. Schuman, MD, to discuss the vaccine hesitancy and the potential ramifications those antivax sentiments could have on the future COVID-19 vaccine.
