Episode 52: On the Subject of Vaccination

“Our life expectancy from the 20s to the current day increased by over 50 years for three reasons: public health, toilets and vaccines.” - Dr. Vincent Racaniello Ph.D

The subject of vaccination can be a touchy one to say the least. Join us as Columbia Professor and virologist, Dr. Vincent Racaniello, teaches us about how vaccines work, discusses some common fallacies about vaccination, and gives our listeners some well vetted, valuable resources on the subject of vaccination.
