Guest speaker Michael Weinstein is the Director of the New Jersey Immunization Network (NJIN).
NJIN's mission is to protect the health of all individuals through timely, age-appropriate immunization against vaccine-preventable diseases by educating the public, healthcare professionals, and policymakers about vaccine safety and benefits.
Michael will update us on the statistics of where we stand with meeting four lifespan vaccination priorities: Hepatitis B birth dose, the general schedule for children before age 3, adolescence, and adults. He'll explain the difference between the positions of vaccine hesitancy and the anti-vaccination movement, and the need for all of us, as parents and peers, and not just the medical community, to encourage following sound, scientific consensus on the safety and effectiveness of vaccines.
The program will start at 1:30pm in the Community Room (on the right just inside the front entrance).
A Q&A session will follow the talk.
Free and open to the public. Refreshments provided. After the meeting, everyone is welcome to join us for an early dinner at 4pm at Ruby Tuesday, 250 Davidson Ave, Somerset.

Widespread intellectual and moral docility may be convenient for leaders in the short term, but it is suicidal for nations in the long term. One of the criteria for national leadership should therefore be a talent for understanding, encouraging, and making constructive use of vigorous criticism.
- Carl Sagan
The lifestance of Humanism—guided by reason, inspired by compassion, and informed by experience—encourages us to live life well and fully. It evolved through the ages and continues to develop through the efforts of thoughtful people who recognize that values and ideals, however carefully wrought, are subject to change as our knowledge and understandings advance.
