Re: The Anti-Antivaccination Backlash

Oh yea, this is most certainly a public health issue.
And, it's a crying shame. We were close to absolutely irradicating this diease from the US.

Sometimes our public health measures are victims of their own success. No one has seen a child die of measles, or a child born with mental retardation because his mother got german measles when she was pregnant in a long time here. So these diseases have ceased to be frightening, and people are focusing on imagined risks of the vaccine.

I guess it's a game of what you fear at the moment.
Can you imagine if an ebola vaccine had been available last October.
People would have been lining up for hours in Dallas and NYC to get it.Demanding it, begging for it.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.
