Vaccines at the Crossroads: Outbreaks On the Rise Across America
Date:8/29/2014

WASHINGTON, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Diseases largely eradicated in the United States a generation ago are returning. Measles was declared eliminated in 2000, yet the CDC reports 593 confirmed cases in 2014 as of August 15—the highest incidence in 20 years. In July, California's public health department declared whooping cough a problem of "epidemic proportions."

Across America, children are getting sick and dying from these preventable diseases—in part because some parents (more than 10 percent) choose to skip or delay their children's immunizations. What are parents' biggest concerns? What are the risks to the child and society when people decide to forego immunization?

The National Press Club Journalism Institute, in partnership with NOVA and Tangled Bank Studios, will co-host a media briefing, Vaccines at the Crossroads, on these questions and trends at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 4, in the First Amendment Lounge, National Press Club, 529 14th Street NW, 13th Floor, DC. The panel will include experts on vaccines and vaccination issues and the producers of an upcoming show on the PBS NOVA program: Vaccines – Calling the Shots, which will air September 10 and then be available for viewing on the NOVA website.

Panelists include:

  • Dr. Paul Offit, leading pediatrician and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases and Director of the Vaccine Education Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, author of several books on vaccines and immunizations;
  • Dr. Brian Zikmund-Fisher, Associate Professor of Health Behavior and Health Education at the University of Mi
