The recent measles outbreak that infected more than 150 people in the U.S. cast the spotlight on the debate over childhood vaccinations. While the debate hit its peak with the Disneyland outbreak, many parents have been teetering on the vaccination fence for decades.
On Thursday, March 19, 2015, Dr. Gerard Rubin of CCS Pediatrics will explore the immunization dilemma some parents face, weigh the pros and cons of the shots, and talk about potential side effects, during a presentation at Lepage Large Conference Room at 99 Campus Avenue in Lewiston. The talk will begin at 5:30 pm and will follow with a question and answer session. Seating is limited so register today by calling 777-8481.
