Medical Officer of Health to talk on vaccination

Maybe you have had the flu jab this year or taken part in the meningococcal B vaccination programme. But how much do you know about the vaccines that you have received?

Canterbury Medical Officer of Health Dr Mel Brieseman will speak on vaccination at this month's Science in the City lecture on Wednesday 31 August, 1.10pm-1.50pm at Our City O-Tautahi, cnr Worcester Boulevard and Oxford Tce.

His lecture will address some of the concerns around vaccination, provide a brief history of vaccination and give details of the local vaccination schedule. Science in the City is a joint effort by the Canterbury Branch of the Royal Society and Christchurch City Council to provide free lectures on topical scientific issues, principally for people who work and live in the central city.

Lectures are held on the last Wednesday of each month, starting at 1.10pm. For more information about events and exhibitions at Our City O-Tautahi visit the website www.ccc.govt.nz/ourcity
