Connections: Discussing the latest measles outbreak and the importance of vaccines

We discuss the recent measles outbreak in the Pacific Northwest, where most of the victims were not vaccinated.

Monroe County Public Health Commissioner Dr. Mike Mendoza says he wants to communicate with parents who are against vaccines to share the message that it is dangerous not to vaccinate children. He joins us, along with Dr. Elizabeth Murray and Dr. Lori Anderson, to discuss the outbreak and address parents’ concerns. Our guests:
