Protect your famly members. Get them vaccinated. is a registered user.

Protect your family members from this life threatening illess. Get them vaccinated. This is a third world problem--reintroduced by scattered groups of poorly informed parents who made bad choices based on bad information.

Check your sources before making medical decisions that affect your family's (and our society's) health.

If you or a member of our family is unvaccinated, talk with your doctor TODAY to understand the issues and do what you can to protect the people you love.

Vaccinate.

Poorly informed - that's so PC. One might add selfish, scientifically illiterate, perhaps even cult-ish.

Protect yourself and those medically unable to be vaccinated - it takes a village.


cult: ...thing that is popular or fashionable, especially among a particular section of society.
