Is VACCINATION an option? What about the new vaccines against HPV, tick-transmitted pathogens or stationary flu? Are we over-vaccinated? Can we choose not to vaccinate ourselves or our kids? How are our decisions regarding vaccination impacting other people’s lives?
When: 20th September 19:30h
Where: Cervantes Institute, Alfons-Goppel-Straße 7, 80539 München
