Healthier Hawaii: Questions about Vaccinations

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - On this segment of Healthier Hawaii, we’re talking about vaccinations. Our guest is Dr. Doug Kwock, chief medical officer and pediatrician from the Pali Momi Center.

Grace Lee asked him to address the number of cases of measles in particular. Dr. Kwock not only talked about measles, but also the mumps outbreak and flu season.

Dr. Kwock also answered questions like:

  • Should it should be alarming even if the majority of us have been vaccinated? Why is this such a danger?
  • What would you say to those people who worry about the unknown effects of a vaccination?
  • Who should you go to figure out if you’re up to date or if you need a new vaccine?
