KUOW online managing editor Isolde Raftery will discuss the history of vaccine hesitancy, starting with the American Revolution (smallpox), noting the rigor of the tuberculosis vaccine, and tying it with the measles outbreak in Vancouver, WA and other places. The discussion will also address the challenges a reporter faces when reporting on this issue, and how to incorporate the multiple perspectives and beliefs on this topic, while maintaining accurate and fact-based storytelling.
