Flat Earthers

 Anti Vax carryover 

From the NYT:

A wave of parents has been radicalized by Covid-era misinformation to reject ordinary childhood immunizations — with potentially lethal consequences.

I have to think that if the Anti Vax covid hoax deniers had their way a hundred years ago, we would still be majorly fighting polio, tuberculosis and smallpox in this country. 

The following chart from the CDC shows the currently recommended immunizations for children.  I wonder if these diseases will have a comeback in the face of all this anti-science hysteria?

Big pharmacy has problems alright but it isn’t,making fortunes off of vaccines. Their preferred moneymakers are things like pills one takes every day. Those generate huge revenue streams.

It is hardly worth arguing about vaccines, if some of the dangerous contagious diseases return, the horror of the suffering they cause will make the case for vaccines.
