Reckless disregard by anti-vaxxers

My granddaughter’s close friend nearly died from measles. She was born prematurely and couldn’t be vaccinated for a while. When she was in the pediatrician’s office, another child came in who had the measles because her parents were anti-vaccines. It took heroic measures, but she survived.

The ignorance and disregard for other people’s health of the anti-vaccine people is incredible, especially in light of the clear overwhelming data on the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines. Unfortunately their innocent children are the victims of their parents’ choices.
