"The study was of just 12 children and it was by this guy, Andrew Wakefield, and if you're wondering why I didn't say 'Dr". Or one Doctor Bob Sears who, while admitting that there's no scientific basis for his delayed "selective vaccine schedule" whatsoever, still spouts unscientific gibberish like "vaccines don't cause autism. except when they do" in order to keep his distressingly popular position as anti-vaxxer spokesman and author viable.
The anti-vaccine movement, which has been around for years, has gained momentum as anti-vaxxers have expressed concerns that immunizations - as well as the number and frequency of injections - may harm developing children. Never. And there are major consequences that go along with this kind of paranoia. And that leads to crises like a Somali community in Minnesota where there has been a recent outbreak. I know first hand the dangers of over vaccinating and leaving your child in the care of poor doctors. Oliver stressed an important point that there are a lot of people whose immune systems are too weak for them to get vaccinated. Measles breakouts are occurring more often and the disease is spreading, children who can't get vaccinated are more at risk of becoming sick, and completely preventable diseases are causing permanent damage and death. Why would you choose not to do that?
"Vaccines are one of humanity's most incredible accomplishments and they've saved millions of lives", Oliver began.
