Science in the News: The History and Science of Vaccines: What, How, WHO, Why

February 21

6:30-7:45 pm Join three local scientists from the University of Colorado to discuss the history, science, and medicine of vaccinations.

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. Ideal for ages 13 and up – accompanied by an adult.
