Vaccination: Where Does Freedom of Choice End?
November 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
With some states now including religious objection to vaccination for exclusion from public school, and with the growing number of reported cases of measles, vaccination is in the news. How far does an individual’s right to choose vaccination extend and exactly how much of a public safety issue is the choice to not get vaccinated? Are there legitimate alternatives to vaccines? Dr. Christine Joy Mackey of Joy Wellness in Wichita and Erik G. Gunderson, PharmD from the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy – Wichita Campus will discuss vaccinations, alternatives to vaccines and whether government has a legitimate interest in the personal decision to vaccinate. Co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters Wichita-Metro.
