That's goddam funny, JB. And spot-on.

I take exception, though, to the choice of words used by those docs at the start of their rant:
"I'm xxx, and I believe in vaccinations."

This ain't no goddam religion...this is science, and medicine. Facts stand by themselves...you can either choose to acknowledge them, or stick your head in the sand (which is up your arse) and ignore them.

For a lot of educated parents videos like the above are counter productive. I'm not going to give my children something for herd immunity that can cause:

Deafness.
Long-term seizures, coma, lowered consciousness.
Permanent brain damage.

Without thorough and accurate knowledge of the risks involved. When my son was born in 2001 we couldn't find actual statistics and we delayed some of his shots. It's gotten much better lately. Not all parents don't immunize because of beliefs, some don't immunize because of lack of scientific understanding of the risks. Or some kids have bad reactions to one shot and the parents don't want to risk more shots.

My wife has had patients who wanted the Ebola vaccine but refused the flu vaccine.

What is really needed in this country is a brain vaccine.
