What is it about?
People's willingness to get a certain vaccine depends on many factors. This research tested whether one of those factors is a bias that arises from the vaccine's national origin. The test concluded that although vaccines from different countries are very similar in technology and quality, people preferred certain vaccines based on where they came from.
