We had eradicated these diseases.
And then some charlatan falsifies evidence that vaccines cause autism. And a couple celebrities get behind it. That’s all it takes, and potentially deadly pathogens are back in the population.
Let me tell you something, if you’re on the fence about this and haven’t bothered to read the science, at least read this. Our elderly and our immunocompromised population are at risk EVEN IF they’ve been vaccinated.
Public schools should require them. If someone makes the choice to put their own child at risk, okay. That’s their choice. But don’t allow them to endanger whole groups of people around them just because of their ill informed decision.
