This week: Vaccination

Posted in upcoming shows by Desiree on November 16, 2008

This week we’ll be speaking to Dr. Kathryn Koliaska about vaccinations and the burgeoning anti-vaccination movement.

From Jenny McCarthy and her multiple appearances on Oprah claiming a pediatric vaccine caused her sons autism, to the recent mumps epidemic that was traced back to a non-vaccinating religious community, to the ethics of mandatory immunization, to the widespread belief that flu shots will actually give you the flu…or something worse…we’ve got a lot to talk about.

See you Friday.
