Virulent: The Vaccine War

Special Film Screening

Virulent: The Vaccine War examines the consequences of vaccine hesitancy and denial. It’s a war anti-vax activists have been fighting for over a decade. And Covid-19 is what they practiced for—a national conversation about vaccine safety and mandates.
