Vaccination: The Record

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 19:42

Mark Crislip has an excellent post on the number of lives saved by vaccines. And it ends with this very quotable line:

Green our vaccines? The only green you will see by getting rid of vaccines or decreasing their use is the grass growing on the graves of children needlessly killed by preventable infections.

He cuts Amanda Peet some slack for her off-the cuff “parasites” remark. I’d agree that it’s inaccurate. But people who refuse to vaccinate their children are every bit as reprehensible as parasites. Just calling them “child abusers” doesn’t cover it, because others suffer beyond their own unfortunate children.
