Highlights

• We investigate whether exposure to previous epidemics affected trust in science and scientists.
• Past epidemic exposure has no impact on views of science as an endeavor.
• It significantly reduces trust in scientists and in the benefits of their work.
• Epidemic-induced distrust translates into lower compliance with health-related policies.
