Enhancing the Effectiveness of Narratives Among Vaccine-Skeptical Parents

Vaccine-skeptics do not trust immunization recommendations and cause problems for public health. Among vaccine-skeptics we test how the mentioning of protagonists’ vaccine-skepticism increases the effectiveness of anecdotal messages. A narrative that portrayed vaccine-skeptical protagonists in a positive way produced the highest intention to vaccinate. Our findings are easy to implement.
