Let's create a fake "top secret" blacklist of them: publicly oppose vaccines, fine, now you can't get a vaccine. Like a no-fly list. Leak a memo that says we don't want them or their diseased offspring to be vaccinated because we need to thin the herd of idiots and the anti-vaxxer movement was an intentional ploy to make that happen. They'd be practically begging for vaccines once it dropped, and the entire movement would die overnight.

/Yeah yeah, herd immunity, etc etc....

I mean...Yes. Of course. Totally fake.

This is why I am constantly eating peanuts. It keeps people who aren't vaccinated against them away.

January 1st is a terrible time to take on an exercise routine. It's cold and rainy. No wonder people give up so quickly.

Maybe we should have "Spring Resolutions" instead - are there maybe any Spring holidays that would work well for such a purpose? Could Easter become about the celebration of the resurrection of the self without pissing off the religious folks? Or maybe Memorial Day Resolutions?

Always try to be the dumbest person in the room, but keep your mouth shut so that the smart people don't catch on and make you leave.

Of course, this is an impossible goal. Only Donald Trump has ever achieved as much as half of that.

Mad_Radhu: Anti-vaxxers are one reason I got my TDaP booster when i was due. I don't want to get whooping cough because you don't want vaccinate your kids.


Any child that dies from Whooping Cough dies of neglect.  Not because they didn't get vaccinated, but because they didn't recieve appropriate medical attention when they began showing signs of a respiratory infection.  Whooping Cough is 100% responsive to macrolide antibiotics provided you bring you infant/early toddler to the doctor when it becomes obvious that it needs one.

Also, the vaccine for Whooping Cough doesn't actually protect against infection of Whooping Cough.  Rather it targets toxins secreted by the bacterium.  Vaccinated persons exposed to Whooping Cough become asymtomatic carriers that walk around infecting people while displaying minimal symptoms.  That's not good for a vaccine that requires a booster every few years from someone charging $400 a visit.

I'd like to see a citation for these claims.
Although I'm not current on the science, these arguments are inconsistent with what I was taught several decades ago.
I'm fairly certain that no therapeutic intervention is 100% effective for pertussis. And I am fairly certain that the several pertussis vaccines are not completely effective in in every instance, they do not cause the person who has been immunized to be a vector of the disease.
Most local public health departments offer free immunization against vaccine preventable diseases. Or is that no longer the case?
Finally, I'm embarrassed to admit that I can't decide whether you are for or against routine immunization programs.  I'm inclined to believe that you are not against.
