Pandemics, Pertussis and Vaccine

by: DemFromCT

Sun Jul 25, 2010 at 11:06:19 AM EDT

At Netroots Nation, I was fortunate enough to participate in a science panel moderated by Mark Sumner and featuring Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway (Merchants of Doubt), and Josh Roseneau (National Center for Science Education.) Their pieces can be found here, here, and here in the order they were given and are well worth the time to view.

For my part, I had a piece about pandemics and vaccination, noting that one of the interesting effects of having a non-seasonal flu H1N1 influenza pandemic was the result of people being more willing to get a non-H1N1 seasonal flu vaccine. It's important to review this topic; like the engineers reviewing the management failure that happened in the Gulf, it's the only way to make use of the lessons learned.

Still, there was reasonable success in vaccinating people, especially high risk groups. The Northeast was especially good about it, due primarily to the strategy of using schools to vaccinate children. The Southeast wasn't so good, and had small late outbreaks of pandemic flu relative to the rest of the country.
