Tuesday Topics: Vaccination: Where Does Freedom of Choice End

November 19, noon – 1pm

Advanced Learning Library, 711 W. 2nd St, click for a map
11:30 am – Socializing with BYO brown bag lunch
Noon – Program and discussion
With some states now including religious objection to vaccination for exclusion from public school and with the growing number of reported cases of measles, vaccination is in the news! It all makes a person wonder just how far an individual’s right to choose vaccination goes and exactly how much of a public safety issue the choice to not get vaccinated should be. And are there legitimate alternatives to vaccines? All this and much more will be on the agenda as Dr. Christine Joy Mackey of Joy Wellness in Wichita and a representative from the Sedgwick County Health Department discuss the pros and cons of vaccinations, alternatives to vaccines and whether government has a legitimate interest in the personal decision to vaccinate.

NOTE: The November Tuesday Topics is moved to the third Tuesday of the month due to conflicts with the Thanksgiving holiday during the fourth week.

This event is open to everyone. Check out our complete calendar.
