Why are the French so sceptical about vaccines?
The Covid-19 pandemic has put vaccine scepticism in the spotlight around the world, especially in France.

In this episode of French Connections Plus, Florence Villeminot and Genie Godula take a stab at where this vaccine hesitancy comes from and why it's so hard to cure.
