Tonight, after President Obama speaks, PBS airs a NOVA documentary about vaccine science and safety. Vaccines: Calling The Shots. It’s told through the parent, pediatrician, and community lens. If you’ve ever wondered about vaccines in America, it’s time to tune in. I’ve been in touch with the team producing this documentary. Seriously excited to hear this story unfold tonight.
(update Sept 11: watch Calling The Shots online)
I think this is a big deal. This is an investigation on the science of vaccines.
The less the disease exists, the safer I am.
It’s a balancing act. The risks happen to be minuscule… the benefits are enormous
If inclined, follow a team of parents, pediatricians, and communities tonight on Twitter while it airs: #vaccinesNOVA
