Shot@Life Panel Discussion


One hundred years ago, infectious diseases were the main cause of death worldwide, even in the most developed countries. Before a vaccination campaign eliminated all natural occurrences of smallpox in 1980, the disease threatened 60% of the world’s population and killed one out of four victims. Between 2000 and 2006, measles deaths dropped worldwide by almost 68%.

Our subject matter experts will discuss general vaccination, the science behind it, the impact on early childhood development and personal choices. Come join our distinguished panelists for this FREE public discussion.

Donations to Shot@Life, a UN program that delivers vaccines to children in need across the world, will be accepted at the door. We host our event at the House of Pacific Relations in the Hall of Nations – DIRECTIONS HERE
