Episode Info: Vaccine hesitancy and vaccine refusal. New York is in crisis. Who is hesitant, who is refusing, what should you do? We asked Dr Margie Danchin. She knows. New York Measles Crisis. This is not a paediatric issue. This affects us all. Margie Danchin has been thinking about vaccines and the related controversy for many years.
