Increasing vaccination uptake. What works?

Gary Finnegan, editor of Vaccines Today, has published a very useful blog, which sets out some of the evidence in terms of what works in increasing uptake of vaccination. The blog draws on new research  published in Vaccine  which “suggests reminding the public about why we vaccinate and about the positive health effects of immunisation”. Finnegan points out that the paper recommends “proactively engaging with the news media, mixing positive stories backed up by rigorous science.
