Get Kids Vaccinated Now

February 16, 2015

It is appalling that individuals think their right not to vaccinate supersedes the lives and values of the population in general. I am old enough to know the ravages of an epidemic caused by lack of vaccinations regardless of the disease.

This me-first attitude has got to stop. Too many of our citizens think their individual concerns should come before the health of millions of school students. Everyone seems to have forgotten that older generations have experienced plagues and diseases that killed millions because of a lack of a vaccine.

If you do not want to vaccinate your children, then do not send them to school. If you care about your neighbor, children and their families then get your kids vaccinated. The good of the whole is more important than one individual’s reaction to a vaccination.
