What Are Your Questions About Vaccines?

Measles outbreaks are popping up in other parts of the country, most recently in Washington state,  which has reported 55 cases so far this year. Most of those cases have been in unvaccinated children under 10. Gov. Jay Inslee has declared a state of emergency.

On Wednesday, Feb. 13, The Exchange will explore the issues of vaccinations, and look at what the science tells us about why they're critical to containing these types of diseases. We'll also look at why some parents choose not to vaccinate their children.

New Hampshire has one of the best vaccination coverage rates in the country, but it's also the only state without an immunization registry.

What are your questions about vaccines? Send them to us before the show, and tune in live at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 13.
