Abstract

Public authorities assume that a reluctance to take the COVID vaccine is due to misinformation. But for migrants trying to cross the border between Italy and France, the reason is simpler: they face an arduous journey across the Alps and do not want to suffer flu-like side-effects from the jab. Costanza Torre (LSE) meets people on the move at a safehouse near the border.
