A documentary that explores questions and myths about immunizations and the vaccine crisis facing the U.S., as well as a panel discussion of the film by health experts, are part of a community effort to educate parents about their children’s health.

“Invisible Threat” is a 42-minute, student-created documentary about vaccines and the danger of declining immunization rates. Doctors and other health professionals along with two local survivors, permanently crippled from life threatening vaccine-preventable diseases, will discuss the film and answer audience questions about vaccines on these dates and locations:

• Tuesday, March 4, 5:30 p.m., at the Florida Room, St. Petersburg College’s Allstate Center, 3200 34th St. S., St. Petersburg

• Saturday, April 26, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., during the Playing Unplugged event at the Largo Cultural Center, 105 Third St. SE, Largo

Additional showings are scheduled on Saturday, Feb. 22, and Saturday, March 22, at locations to be determined.

For information about “Invisible Threat,” visit www.chstvfilms.org.

The newly formed Pinellas Immunizations Team sponsors the film showings and panel discussions for Community Health, or PITCH. With the leadership of the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, doctors, health professionals, community agencies and committed individuals have joined together to address the childhood immunization rate in the county, which is below the Florida Department of Health’s goal of 90 percent of 2-year-olds fully immunized.

For information about PITCH or to join the coalition, call 820-4105.
