IamA Karie Youngdahl, director of historyofvaccines.org, about diseases and vaccines through history. AMA!
I’m Karie Youngdahl, the director of historyofvaccines.org, an award-winning website from The College of Physicians of Philadelphia about vaccine history. Our aim is to explore the role of vaccines in human health, both historically and in the present. Given the current US measles outbreaks, I’ve been getting lots of calls from reporters and from the general public about vaccines, vaccine history, and measles history. AMA!
Victoria from Reddit is helping me today. Michelle Sipics, our former content developer, is here to help answer questions, too.
Thanks, everyone, for all the great questions. Signing off for now. You can always Tweet questions to @historyvaccines. I'll try to keep checking in throughout the rest of the day! You've been amazing!
