Un vaccin à l’épreuve des controverses
Implantation de la vaccination anti-HPV en Suisse romande
Through the analysis of three points of controversy, the article examines how the HPV vaccine’s value is negotiated and redefined during its implementation in the French part of Switzerland. It considers how erasure, disconnection and alliance processes are used to render the vaccine indispensable. The article also shows how interests are locally constructed and how the vaccine redefines relations between general practitioners, a target population, and a disease.
