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.
