This appeared today on her blog post  <a href="http://gianelloni.wordpress.com/2014/03/20/dear-blog-bullies-i-dont-see-your-comments/#comments">"Dear Blog Bullies, I don't See Your Comments"</a>.

 

It's brilliant.

I know, I said that in the title, but really, it is. Her response:

The favorite vax-pushing argument:  ”You fail to realize that many kids can still get measles even if they got the vaccine. So your un-vaccinated child could potentially infect a vaccinated one. Your behavior is actually putting other children at risk”

 

Her response:  Here’s how I read that last one: “You fail to realize that vaccines don’t work. So your unvaccinated child could potentially infect a vaccinated one. So go get your unvaccinated child vaccinated with a vaccine that doesn’t work to protect the vaccinated child who wasn’t originally protected from the vaccine that didn’t work”

Why have none of us been able to put it into words like that before?  It's so simple!


They want us to vaccinate our children with a vaccine that doesn't always work, to protect another child for whom the vaccine didn't work?
