Vaccinations are safe and protect the public from illness outbreaks.
Worse, vaccination hesitancy has been on the rise in America — as have the illnesses which those treatments prevent. Measles, for example, is on the rise.
This issue stems from anti-vaccination misinformation, which has spread through the internet like wildfire. This kind of information has led parents to question and, in many cases, not use this life-saving medicine.
Let’s use #SaludTues on Twitter on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, to discuss vaccinations and why they are so important for public health:
- WHAT: #SaludTues Tweetchat: “Vaccination Access and Awareness”
- TIME/DATE: 1-2 p.m. ET (Noon-1 p.m. CT), Tuesday, August 20, 2019
