Ever since the medical journal Lancet published a discredited study linking autism to immunizations in 1998, vaccines have remained controversial and spurred an anti-vaccine movement. Now that movement is gaining traction in Utah public schools, where more parents of kindergartners are opting out of immunizations for their children.
On Tuesday at 12:15 p.m., pediatrician William Cosgrove, Becky Ward of the Utah Department of Health and Tribune health reporter Kirsten Stewart join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about the ongoing distrust of immunizations and the public health implications.
