Nice bit of aggressive pro-vaccine medical advertising

21 November, 2018

Here is somthing someone posted on FaceBook regarding vaccination which you may find interesting:

----------

Not vaccinating your kids leaves them vulnerable to disease their whole lives.

When your daughter gets rubella when pregnant, how are you going to explain that you chose to leave her at risk?

What will you say when she calls you and tells you she has cervical cancer, because you decided that she wouldn’t need the HPV vaccine?

What do you tell your son when he breaks the news to you that he cannot have kids, thanks to the mumps that he got as a teenager?

And what do you say when he gives influenza to his grandma? How do you explain that she won’t be coming home from the hospital? Not ever.

Do you tell them that you didn’t think these diseases were that serious? That you thought that your organic, home-cooked food was enough to protect them?

Do you say, “sorry”?
