WHYY Spring Break Middle School Journalists: Vaccines

The recent alarming outbreak of Mumps at Temple University led our Spring Break Journalism students to use their new skills in reporting, shooting and editing to look deeper into the importance of vaccines. Lucas Fraser, Sarria Joe and Ruben Barrett spoke to a representative from the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, a postdoctoral fellow at the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania and a current Temple Student to gauge the city’s response to the outbreak and ways to educate the public about vaccines.
