À lire les sondages, la France se distingue par un haut niveau de défiance vaccinale. Mais, dans la pratique, les taux de couverture restent élevés, et la campagne de vaccination contre le Covid s’accélère. L’hésitation n’est pas toujours synonyme de refus ou de résistance.

This article draws on Charles Rosenberg’s classic essay “What Is an Epidemic?” (1989) to reflect on the complex narrative structures and temporalities of epidemics as they are experienced and storied. We begin with an analysis of Rosenberg’s use of Albert Camus’s The Plague and a discussion of how epidemics have been modeled in literature and in epidemiology concomitantly. Then, we argue that Charles Rosenberg’s characterization of epidemics as events bounded in time that display narrative and epidemiological purity fails to account for the reinvention of life within health crises. Adopting the ecological, archaeological, and anthropological perspectives developed within African studies enriches the range of available plots, roles, and temporal sequences and ultimately transforms our way of depicting epidemics. Instead of events oriented toward their own closure, epidemics might be approached as unsettling, seemingly endless periods during which life has to be recomposed.

This article explores the history of the immunization schedule—a table that orders mandatory and recommended vaccines and their boosters through time. My study focuses on France, from the late 1950s to the 1990s. A couple of conferences at the turn of the 1960s set the parameters for immunization schedules, providing insights into their expected disciplinary functions. In the wake of these conferences, a long series of clinical trials aimed to simplify and rationalize the schedules. These trials were carried out by the International Children's Center (ICC), an institution whose aim transitioned in the mid-1960s from the standardization of the sole vaccine against tuberculosis to the simplification of the expanding immunization device for children. I draw from the ICC's experimental work on schedules to define "simplification" with regard to the notion of standardization.

La pandémie a suscité un grand nombre de comparaisonsavec des épidémies historiques comme la peste noireou la grippe espagnole. Mais que faire de ces prétendues« leçons du passé » quand elles ne cherchent qu’à fairerentrer l’événement dans des cadres préconstruits hérités de récits répétitifs ?
