Event description

Description

Dr. Barbara Pahud will discuss the issues of vaccinations locally, nationally, and globally. She will examine the truths and myths, and everything you need to know to stay up-to-date and be able to tell fake news from true science. Topics will include: What’s in a vaccine? Do we still need to immunize against polio if we don’t have cases in the U.S.? Why do we have so many measles lately? And was “X” caused by a vaccine and how can doctors tell?
