“Vaccination hesitancy” and its origins were introduced in the preceding presentation. In this second presentation, emerging veterinary manifestations of vaccine hesitancy, an overview of the findings of a large WSAVA member survey, and some ideas about how we, the veterinary profession, might respond to vaccine hesitancy will be presented. Vaccine hesitancy has been defined as “...delay in acceptance or refusal of vaccination despite availability of vaccination services”.1 This definition is perhaps not inclusive enough for small companion animal practitioners. Many people who choose not to vaccinate their pets do so without consulting a veterinarian. So they do not delay acceptance, nor refuse, they simply avoid discussion. Nevertheless, such individuals certainly need to be included in our consideration.
