Tomorrow evening “Frontline” on PBS will present an episode called The Vaccine War. The show will address the controversy surrounding vaccines and the differing perspectives of the general public, scientists, and public health officials. Visitors to Frontline’s website can interact with medical experts identified by Frontline who will be responding to comments and answering questions. Visitors can also take a survey featuring five key questions about their attitudes toward vaccines, and find out how well their responses match responses from a nationwide survey.
