Vaccines have been in the news a lot this week because Wednesday was exclusion day in Oregon schools. (The first day unvaccinated students aren’t allowed to attend school without records explaining the decision.)
OHSU Oregon National Primate Research Center researcher Mark Slifka, Ph.D., has appeared in several stories to talk about vaccines and the role they play.
Dr. Slifka will talk further about vaccine research and it’s accomplishments during a free lecture tonight at 7:30 p.m. More info here.
Meanwhile, if you want to know how successful vaccines have been in preventing illness over the years, an amazing graphic can be found in this Forbes story.
