FORMER DOH SEC. JANETTE GARIN
“My conscience is clear,” says former Health Secretary Janette Garin. She blames the controversy and hysteria as the reason why “public health is threatened.” People now fear life-saving and time-tested vaccines because of misinformation. Disinformation is dangerous when it causes people to change their behavior.
What is the answer to misinformation and deliberate propaganda? Release immediate corrections through official government channels. Perhaps media literacy and massive public information brigade are needed.
