The suggestions are based on psychological research on persuasion, on research in public health, communication studies and on WHO risk communication guidelines.

 The strategies presented in the following chapters convey two main rules that serve as guiding principles to rethink the way you debate and achieve the primary goal of a public discussion with a vocal vaccine denier, which is to make the public resilient against anti-vaccine rhetoric:

1 - The general public is your target audience, not the vocal vaccine denier.

2 - Aim to correct the content [LIE] AND unmask the techniques that the vocal vaccine denier is using.

GOAL - Make the public audience more resilient against anti-vaccine statements and stories; support the vaccine hesitants in their vaccine acceptance decision.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5
