    I honestly feel like people have forgotten how serious some of these diseases actually are. Whooping Cough, Diphtheria, Polio are not diseases that should be taken lightly. Many of these vaccine naysayers are still protected by virtue of a high immunization rate among the general population. If the vaccination rates fall low enough you won't have this protection and honestly I think that's what it will take to get this silly idea out of some peoples head. I just feel bad for the kid who ends up getting a horrible disease because their loving(yet misguided) parents won't vaccinate them.

    When my grandson was a little boy he had his first vaccination shot and he immediately had a violent reaction. Needless-to-say, he hasn't had any further shots. And neither has his little brother.

    If you're taking science out of education, you might as well take it out of health care, too.
