OPHA 2019 Luncheon Plenary Panel
"Taking a shot at vaccination conundrums"
Moderated by Paul Lewis, MD – Tri-county Public Health Officer

Vaccination has been a cornerstone of public health disease prevention since the 18th century, and, since their origin, vaccines have been the subject of public controversy and turmoil. While overall acceptance of vaccination remains high, a growing list of regions and groups are seeing vaccination rates fall amid intense allegations of risks and distrust of both government and industry.
Panelists will discuss the factors that shape today’s vaccine landscape with perspectives of history, medical anthropology, parent and provider education, traditional and social media, medicine, and public health. A moderated discussion and Q&A period will provide the opportunity for further exploration.
