In a 2018 interview, Akon stated that Black people don't need to be vaccinated in order to go to Africa. This week, we discuss the role of culture in medical misinformation. Plus, we chat to Dr Furaha Asani as to why certain communities might be less likely to accept vaccinations and why labeling them "anti-vax" ignores their legitimate concerns

- Here's a link to Furaha's article in New Scientist - Labelling people "anti-vaxxers" ignores real roots of their concerns
