Probe 2017: Debate on mandatory vaccination

Home » Events » Probe 2017: Debate on mandatory vaccination

Other European countries such as France and Italy have recently made the decision to make some of their vaccines compulsory. With more people becoming concerned about vaccines, and vaccination rates dropping in the Western world, will there come a time where Ireland has to make the decision to make vaccines compulsory? Join us to debate this controversial but important subject. This discussion will be chaired by Aoife McLysaght, who will be joined by clinician Clíona Ní Cheallaigh, researcher Kingston Mills and ethicist Louise Campbell.

Please note, this event takes place in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute.
