Are "Vaccine Refusals" To Blame for High Vaccine Costs?

This is among the more absurd things I've read in awhile. Is there anything for which *they* DON'T blame non-compliant parents? Pretty soon, we'll shoulder the blame for fracking and honeybee...

Off topic a bit, but I love your wording. Vax critics get accused to being "first world" for declining one or more vaccines. But yes, the first-worlders may actually be the mommy play groups who...

Yes! And following the data that we have, those clusters were probably even bigger years ago.
