Join us for a screening of Pacific alumnus Chris Schueler's documentary about misinformation around vaccinations. There will be Q&A following the documentary screening with Schueler and Rear Admiral (RADM, ret) Pamela Schweitzer, former Assistant Surgeon General and Chief Pharmacist Officer of the United States Public Health Service (PHS).
In the age of social media, we can all be fooled by misinformation in many ways. “Vaccination from the Misinformation Virus” explains how to overcome our bias to understand why vaccines are safe, crucial to community health and save millions of lives annually. With an overview of how viruses spread, how we contain them and a brief history of the development of vaccines, the program includes information about how vaccines work and their future uses.
