Science podcasters encourage H1N1 vaccination

17 October 2009

FluWidgetMed_EnglishBecause of concerns about the safety and efficacy of the new vaccine against 2009 H1N1 influenza (”swine flu”) Marc Pelletier, PhD from Futures in Biotech and I teamed up to record a public service announcement to encourage vaccination. This announcement addresses safety and side effects, which are expected to be similar to those from any influenza vaccine. Ginger Campbell MD, an emergency room physician, and host of Brain Science Podcast and Sciencepodcasters.org, was kind enough to add her recommendations to the announcement.

I encourage you to listen the the announcement and share it with others. You are welcome to place it on websites, blogs, and podcasts. A copy of the mp3 file can be downloaded here.
