I joke…I hope.
What is true is that on Wednesday 20 July at 9pm, a new documentary, called Unvaccinated, with Professor Hannah Fry will be airing. Hopefully it will be an unbiased look at why people decided not to have the Covid-19 vaccines but I don’t hold out much hope.
The BBC, when announcing the programme wrote this teaser.
Covid-19 is on the rise again in the UK. After multiple lockdowns and more than 197,000 deaths, experts are warning we’re now entering a fifth wave of the pandemic. But why are so many people in the UK still yet to receive a single dose of the vaccine?
In this timely, eye-opening investigation commissioned by BBC Factual for BBC Two and BBC iPlayer, due to air on Wednesday 20 July at 9pm, Professor Hannah Fry seeks to understand why a portion of the population remain unvaccinated against Covid-19.
Professor Hannah Fry is a British Mathematician who worked on the data that helped bring the UK out of its first lockdown. Following the largest UK-wide survey since the vaccine rollout began, she’s on a mission to get behind the headlines and find out what the nation thinks today.
To fully explore this complex and deeply divisive debate, Hannah will bring seven unvaccinated participants together under one roof to unpack the long-held opinions, beliefs and fears that have prevented them from getting the vaccine. Together, they will come face to face with leading experts, confronting the latest science and statistics to emerge in the field and dissecting how misinformation spreads on social media.
At the end of the experiment each contributor will be asked if what they have learned has changed their mind, and whether they will now take up the vaccine. Scientists say we are likely to face more pandemics, and more vaccine roll outs – what will it take to convince those who are unvaccinated to get their first Covid-19 vaccination?
Tom Coveney, BBC Commissioning Editor, Science, says: “With Covid infections on the rise again, there couldn’t be a more important time to examine the reasons why so many adults are still not getting the vaccine.
