from SLATE:

Fighting anti-vaxxers is critical. The misinformation they spread is incredibly dangerous. First, because it’s simply wrong, almost to a letter. Second, because it spreads fear, and then parents don’t vaccinate their kids or get booster shots themselves. And when that happens, herd immunity drops, and when herd immunity drops, kids start getting infected. Some die. This is no joke: It happens in Australia, it happens in the United Kingdom, it happens here in the United States. Boulder, CO had a breakout last year and one baby came very close to death.

We need to get the word out: Vaccines save lives. And we also need to fight the forces of ignorance when we can.

Vaccines changed my sons life for the worse. We will no longer be vaxing.

Do what you want with your family, but stay the hell out of my business.

Ok, I understand that, but you can't force people to vax their kids.

Everything you said can also be said for the opposing side. No vaccinating likely saved my son's life.
