Anti Vax

Posted on Mon, Aug 23, 2010 at 12:21 AM

How many children have to die before people realize that to protect themselves, their children, and the rest of the population, they NEED to get themselves and their families vaccinated? I have two close relatives that, because of medical conditions, cannot get vaccinated against diseases that could make them very sick and even kill them. So they have to rely on the rest of the population being vaccinated, it's called herd immunity.

Seeing what's going on in California, loss of herd immunity, outbreak, un-vaccinated infants dying needlessly, it scares the shit out of me. Because I hear it here all the time "vaccines cause autism", "they put mercury in those things", "big pharma is paying doctors to keep us sick".

How can people be so ignorant? People are actually dying from preventable illnesses, courtesy of Anti Vax fear mongering and their disgustingly irresponsible campaign of misinformation, and we have the technology to stop it! Yet people not only still reject it, but they fight against it! And attack the very people who are trying to save their lives. What's the body count at now? 600 something? What will the number have to be before you're convinced? —Vaccinated

Wake up and get vaccinated before it's too late.
