Disneyland

The happiest place on Earth. Yeah, really. Because we all want to pay $200 per person to stand in line all day, eat lousy food and listen to children cry. In the happiest place on Earth.

Now you too can become part of the great social experiment being foisted upon the rest of us by people who think vaccinations are evil. You see, there’s a measles outbreak that is spreading throughout the globe. So far, about 2 dozen cases have been traced back to Disneyland directly. Of those, half were unvaccinated people.

In my city, 300 people were put at risk when a child with measles was brought into an ER. The child was unvaccinated and had been to Disneyland. That doesn’t count the number of other people this family exposed as they dragged their sick child through cities and towns.

Seriously, vaccines do not cause Autism (an easy reading version http://www2.aap.org/immunization/families/mmr.html) and while it’s possible for someone to have a reaction to a vaccine, it’s very rare.

The diseases are more common than vaccine reactions. From January 1-August 16, 2014, 17,325 cases of pertussis have been reported to CDC by 50 states and Washington, D.C.; this represents a 30% increase compared with the same time period in 2013. (http://www.cdc.gov/pertussis/outbreaks/trends.html).

If you’re a conspiracy theorist, too bad. There is way more evidence out there that vaccines do more good than harm. Nothing is perfect. When it comes down to it, I’d rather run the risk of a slight fever and some grumpiness over the death of my child.

As for me, I can no longer receive vaccines because of my illnesses. If I could, I would. So I rely on YOU to do your part. The more people who are vaccinated, the smaller the outbreaks. Selfish, I know. But there are literally hundreds of thousands of people who have cancer and autoimmune disorders who would also appreciate your cooperation. In reality, I think everyone would appreciate your cooperation, even the idiot anti-vaxxers.

So, if you are an anti-vaxxer think about the deaths of your loved ones because that’s what you are inviting. Measles was well on its way to being eradicated in the 1970’s due to vaccinations. Now we have outbreaks all over. Including the happiest place on Earth.

It’s a choice. I get that. But perhaps you should choose life in this case.
