Discussion of measles outbreak today at 1:35 pm on KOMO-Seattle

May 26th, 2011 → 12:53 pm @ // 2 Comments

According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Washington State has one of the highest school-immunization exemption rates in the country — and the current measles outbreak that’s spreading across the country has reached there as well.

Today at 1:35 pm PST, I’ll be on KOMO-Newsradio AM 1000/97.7 FM to talk about the ways in which declining vaccination rates have contributing to the situation. If you’re not in the station’s broadcast range, you can also listen online.

    The author is a apparently a doctor in the field of economics, and may be biased in her reporting, so I would take this expensive to read article with a grain of salt. Reminds me of the old “if your parents own a vacuum cleaner your more likely to go to university” correlation vs causation example from the abstract. Too bad we just can’t focus on the real science.
