Vaccine – Calling the Shots (PBS Video)

Diseases that were largely eradicated in the United States a generation ago—whooping cough, measles, mumps—are returning, in part because nervous parents are skipping their children’s shots. NOVA (the highest rated science series on television and the most watched documentary series on public television) has posted a video on PBS called “Vaccines—Calling the Shots” which takes viewers around the world to track epidemics, explore the science behind vaccinations, hear from parents wrestling with vaccine-related questions, and shed light on the risks of opting out.

Video Details: The program examines the science behind vaccinations, the return of preventable diseases, and the risks of opting out.
