The Show regularly checks in with Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about the big issues facing the state and the region — featured in the newspaper’s Viewpoints section.

Although health officials in the U.S. made the official declaration that measles was eradicated in this country in 2000, an increasing number of people deciding not to vaccinate their children has created current worries and a growing list of Americans with the disease.

In response, the Arizona Republic editorial board decided to turn their page over to doctors and nurses in the state who vaccinate their own kids and to explain why vaccinations are important.

Phil Boas, editorial director for the Arizona Republic, joined The Show for his weekly appearance to talk about the project and vaccinations.
