Abstract

The contestations arising from the introduction in various European countries of mandatory vaccination against Covid-19 for certain categories of workers are expressionsof a profound malaise, not new and common to Western societies. Misinformation about vaccines is not a new phenomenon, but has been heightened due to the rise of social media, clearly evident during the Covid-19 emergency. These conflicts have a significant social impact and can hinder the struggle against the spread of the virus. This work analyses the origins and legal implications of this growing social mistrust in science, whichjeopardises the stability of the constitutional order, founded on the principles of trust and solidarity
