PODCAST FLASHBACK -- WORLD IMMUNIZATION WEEK -- DR. LIBBY RANNIGER, MD

09/17/20

This week's podcast is a rewind to April for World Immunization Week. However, child immunization is a vital issue in the age of COVID-19. Immunization saves millions of lives every year and is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful and cost-effective health interventions. Yet, there are still nearly 20 million children in the world today who are not getting the vaccines they need. Dr. Libby Ranniger, a pediatrician at CCMH, discusses the importance of getting children vaccinated as soon as possible after birth. She also dispels some myths regarding the side effects from vaccinations.
