After the presentation by Pierre Fourier, where he highlighted the hurdles facing the vaccine industry, which I have mentioned above, an attendee asked the direct question as to how he thinks the anti-vaccination movement can be addressed. Surprisingly, he admitted that this is not an area that is being formally addressed by vaccine scientists at this time but believed that this must change. Currently the scientific experts in this field are loosing their voice in the public arena, Pierre suggested that perhaps we need to have experts that do not just tout the rhetoric of the vaccine industry but communicate with facts supported by overwhelmingly convincing data that is available. He also suggested that these experts should not be from industry, due to the lack of trust with these institutions but should come from elected government and independent healthcare organisations.
