When your first child is born you feel very protective. It is, frankly, a vulnerable time. I feel like an idiot for ever having been (partially) taken in by the anti-vaccine crowd. At first it sounded reasonable. Fortunately I only grumbled, but let my daughter have all the vaccinations. And I’ve totally repented of my error.
Read this long, but vital, post on a wonderful blog called Science-Based Medicine. Everybody should read it – especially anybody harboring doubts about vaccinating their kids.
(Among the great surprises: Jim Carrey is a raving moron. Who would have guessed?)
The irresponsibility of the luddites fighting against the greatest life-saving technology in history is nothing short of criminal. Don’t be taken in.
Vaccinate your kids.
