Tuesday 12 November 2013 - UCL Lunch Hour Lecture: Learning from vaccine scares: MMR and beyond
13.15 - 13.55 - UCL Darwin Lecture Theatre, Malet Place, London, WC1E 7JE
Speaker: Dr Helen Bedford (UCL Institute of Child Health)
After clean water, childhood immunisation is the most effective intervention for protecting children against infectious diseases. In the UK, vaccine uptake rates are high, in spite of some parents considering immunisation to be unnecessary or even detrimental to children’s health and wellbeing. This lecture will review recent vaccine safety scares, and how we might learn from such events to ensure successful immunisation programmes in the future.
