Program Description

Event Details

In 2000 the United States declared measles was eradicated thanks to the MMR vaccine; two decades later, the World Health Organization has reported that outbreaks are on the rise. Vaccines are a powerful tool for protecting ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities from disease. But many fear that they carry their own risks, and don’t participate. So what are the facts, and what are the stakes? Join three local scientists from the University of Colorado to discuss the history, science, and medicine of vaccinations.
