Thank you so mauch for your talk! I’m speaking from Brazil, where I’m a social science researcher on/with indigenous peoples, anthropology and public health. Here we have a great national vaccination program, spread along so many diferents places,through the arms of a Nacional and Public Health System. Indigenous peoples are covered by a specific sub-system, inside the National one. They were usually getting vaccinated, from other several diseases, with relative success. Although their priorization, notably from those who lives in recognized territories, there are a huge number who refuse to get the vaccine. The Covid vaccine, may be due to an specific sociopolitical and anti-indigenous context in the country , seems to be more “vunerable” to distrust, misinformation or usefull – at least from the indigenous people perspectives – for purposes other than heal or protect then. By contrast, for the non-indians who doesn’t want vaccines, it seem’s that the main reason could be the TRUST in government. Do you have some research findings in this way? Trust or distrust, either, can result in vaccine “hesitation” (in the absence of a better term).
