    This week, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted unanimously to recommend the Pfizer vaccine be given to kids ages 12-15. We invited long-time ACIP member Patsy Stinchfield on the podcast to talk us through how this decision was made and when other age groups might be eligible. We asked her all the […]

    In May of 2020, I wrote an article after some COVID-19-related growing pains. It was shortly after my children’s very first vaccine appointment in the twelve years since I’d stopped vaccinating my oldest child. I felt I had to share my story because I knew that my experience—not being open to information, adhering to a […]

    Chelsea Clinton comes from a background of public service, so why is she working so hard on global health right now? And why is she willing to take a stand for vaccines? We invited her to Vax Talk to discuss this, and so much more! Links from this episode: Disinformation Dozen Clinton Foundation Remember to […]

    Don’t worry! We aren’t switching sides. Heather Simpson, former anti-vaccine influencer, already switched sides. She took a look at the science and decided she needed to vaccinate herself and her daughter. This is the audio from a previous Facebook Live event.

  • The First Shot Against COVID-19

    I have enrolled in a #COVIDvaccine trial and last week got my first shot.  This wasn’t always my plan, though. I had a surprising amount of hesitancy early on, so I want to share how I worked through it. As an avid advocate who believes that vaccines save lives, I found myself personally and professionally […]

  • Tracking the Anti-Vaccine Movement

    The anti-vaccine movement is as old as vaccines, but the modern movement began with concerns about the whole-cell pertussis vaccine and seizures. It famously later morphed into the primary purveyor of disinformation related to autism. Lately, however, the anti-vaccine movement more like a media empire and looks more like male-driven operation. How did they get […]
