Oh ok.
I wouldn't use droves. haha. I don't think it matches what I am saying. I am talking about a demographic shift in the circles I am familiar with. The numbers may even be similar. Just...

For a lot of people I know that have changed their minds and chosen to vaccinate their children, I think it was easier than it would be for people that are very vocally dogmatic. The issue has...
