Communicate To Vaccinate

Measles are spreading again, here in America, where, in 2000, they were declared "all but gone."

Here, in Armpit, TN, Mumps and Whooping Cough have hit epidemic levels.

Anti-vaxxers are crossing a line into deadly irresponsibility, and destroying decades of progress in disease eradication.

Get yourself and your kids vaccinated, and maintain booster shots.

Greg Fallis likens the anti-vaxxers to the Measles Liberation Front in this pointed satire.

NTodd at Dohiyi Mir compares them to drunks on the road. I think that low-balls the threat.

Vixen Strangely says, It's about not being a jerk who compromises your whole community's health.

Ogged at Unfogged notes that anti-vaxxers are having sad feels. Isn't charitable.
