Based on a small qualitative empirical study, this article explores in what sense parents’ vaccine attitudes can be understood as existential narratives. My main argument is based on the idea that by studying vaccine attitudes as existential narratives, one can increase the understanding of vaccine attitudes in general, but also of meaning-making aspects of life – such as parenthood. I argue this to be a unique perspective on vaccine attitudes and vaccine behavior that also reveals the larger context surrounding questions related to vaccine choices.
