Anti-vaxxers causing measles outbreaks in US

Anti-vaxxers with their pseudo science are causing public health problems wherever they exist. Parents, themselves have been vaccinated, are no longer vaccinating their children. When generations emerged who have never seen the adverse and cataclysmic effects of disease, stupidity and privilege reign supreme.Worst worst part is the victims are always children (and sometimes the elderly). Children of uneducated parents who are susceptible to easily preventable diseases, and children who cannot be vaccinated (perhaps due to age).Unfortunately a change in the anti-vaccination movement won’t come until there is a widespread epidemic that will decimate children in small population counties. It’s eerie to consider that the “best” case scenario would be for outbreaks to be contained in highly religious or anti-science communities. But containment for infectious disease in highly populated areas is difficult. It’s only a matter of time before a lot of children get sick.
