I bet the topic needs no introduction. Ever since Kat von D posted a picture on Instagram, claiming that she would raise her child without vaccination, it has been all over the internet.
And I am kind of glad it is. Not because someone with a huge following and influence spoke out against vaccines. That is harmful to the cause and has in the past proven to lead to a decrease in vaccination.
But because vaccination is a hot topic once again, with other influential people speaking up about their experiences (Caroline Hirons, just to name one).
See, transmittable diseases and vaccination are part of my daytime job. I have been on the radio numerous times, I am going to speak on a panel on this topic come Monday and if the time for talking is done, I am one of the squad that visits your school/kindergarten/whatever to see if the outbreak of measles happening there puts your child in danger and if quarantine is needed.
