Resistance to Adopting Childhood Vaccines

Is this a Rising Public Health Issue?

March 10, 2023 

12:00 PM- 1:00 PM CT 


A confirmation message and Zoom link will be sent immediately upon registering for the program. If you do not receive the confirmation with the Zoom link, please contact the IOMC office promptly by email at iomcstaff@iomc.org. 

Obtain the updates and the latest protocols related to Cook County Department of Public Health, CDC, and FDA.  Confusion and misleading information may be contributing the resistance to childhood vaccines. There are definite adverse implications if vaccines are not accepted especially for children. 

By attending this session, you will be able to answer:

  • How does Illinois and other states look in regards to vaccines and acceptance? 
  • Are we taking steps back?
  • How we can approach this pending public health issue and protect our children, their health, our schools and communities? 
  • What is misinformation and the real benefits?
