Description

  • FRONTLINE: The Vaccine War

    In 2010, FRONTLINE reported on the warnings of doctors and public health experts that growing skepticism about vaccines could enable the return of preventable diseases once thought to be eliminated. Now, in 2015, those warnings appear to be coming true, with measles, mumps, and whooping cough all making a comeback.

    Building on years of research, this updated documentary explores both the roots of the vaccine debate, and the latest chapter in the heated controversy: Are parents who choose not to vaccinate their children putting the health of our nation at risk?

    From the unfolding legislative battle over personal belief exemptions and whether children should be allowed to attend public schools if they are not vaccinated, to the growth of the vaccine-skeptic movement, to the struggles of health care providers trying to reassure parents that vaccines are safe, to the science at the heart of it all, The Vaccine War is a compelling and timely report on an issue that remains highly emotional and deeply divisive.
