Aug. 30, 2019, marks the centennial of the birth of Maurice Hilleman. Dr. Hilleman helped to create more than half of the vaccines children routinely receive in the first few years of life. To celebrate his birth, the Vaccine Makers Project, the classroom-based program of the Vaccine Education Center (VEC), is offering free viewing of the complete version of the award-winning documentary, Hilleman: A Perilous Quest to Save the World’s Children, on Aug. 30. If you have not seen the film, this is a great opportunity to see it for free.
