Free Screening: Vaccines – Calling the Shots

Free Screening: Vaccines – Calling the Shots

By: Leah Hollenberger

There has been a lot of information shared regarding vaccinations and their safety. An upcoming free film and discussion may help answer some of your questions.

The film, “Vaccines – Calling the Shots,” is from NOVA, the long-running, award-winning science documentary series from PBS. The film will be followed by a Q&A with providers from the Hardwick Health Center. Come watch the movie and join in the conversation Thursday, April 27 at 6:30pm at the Greensboro Free Library.

This NOVA film highlights that diseases that were largely eradicated in the United States a generation ago—whooping cough, measles, mumps—are returning. NOVA 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.

It is a good opportunity to talk candidly with primary care providers about vaccine safety, the risks of opting out, and any other concerns you may have.

For details, call 472-3300.

This free event is sponsored by the Hardwick Health Center. Presentations at the Greensboro Free Library are part of an open and free exchange of views, and may not necessarily represent the views of the library.
