New Bonus Episode: Anti-Vaxxers and the Haredi Jewish Community of New York

Our latest bonus episode for our Controversies and Contraband series is with the lovely Dr Heather Munro, available now on Patreon:

Following on from our previous episode on Haredi and Hasidic Jewish identity (Episode 36), this part II focuses on the anti-vax movement existent amongst the Haredi community of New York. With a history of mistrust towards the medical community, this has been compounded by the increased fear of population control and sterilization, which is believed to have links to the COVID vaccine. In this episode, Dr Munro explores the reasons for vaccine hesitancy within the Haredi community and why a lot of decisions to vaccinate family members comes down to good communication and trust between Haredi clients and their family doctors.
