They are among the most effective, safest, and cheap medicines ever discovered by humankind. Still, questions about vaccines resonate across our communities and in the media. Do vaccines cause autism? Are they harmful? What about their ingredients? Is vaccination a personal choice? In this talk, Francesco presents the basic facts about vaccines, and he will discuss these and many other questions. Communities need vaccines, and vaccines need communities.
Come for a talk and stay for discussion with other curious visitors.
