dc.description.abstractThis paper examines the conflict between an official bio-medical position and a dissenting view on mass childhood immunisation and some of the associated political and ethical dilemmas this gives rise to. In doing so, the results of a recent qualitative study by the authors of 'rational non-compliance' with MCI will be used. In outlining the components of this dissenting position the purpose is not to assess the scientific validity of alternative claims about immunisation. This would be an impossible task within this space, given the competing and shifting knowledge claims within epidemiology about the impact of immunisation and the natural history of diseases. Rather the purpose is to outline the rationale for becoming 'refusers' in the context of the official policy, knowledge and practices of primary health care workers in relation to MCI.en
