No, @108, she's out to lunch- don't listen to her. Vaccination is the most effective mechanism of any kind that humans have come up with, hands down; Everyone should vaccinate their kids.
You can't put comfrey on mumps. Joan M's family's health is greatly in part due to the broad and obedient use of vaccine amongst her neighbors and friends.
I understand the natural reaction to injecting medicine into a totally healthy child. It goes against the "natural" lifestyle, and is at odds with what feels right. However, a quick look at the math and the epidemiology leaves absolutely NO DOUBT as to the complete truth of my first paragraph.

This post is absolutely perfect in every way. Of course, you can't make this shit up, but I'm just sayin': This hit every kind of humorous and geographical angle that I'm looking for in a SLOG post. Brilliant.

Yeah, I mean.... I trust Dan's assessment of this woman as a homeless person. I don't know what planet you're from, but on Earth, you can identify them from about 20 feet away, except for a minority of cleaned-up ones. But the dirty ones... c'mon man. Bluetooth. Heh.
