Let's get it back on track. Why vaccinate them?I'm going to pull a @Grace T. here, but I was in GATE. I don't think dumbing down public education is a great direction, but there were serious problems with GATE when I was in it. Primarily, the parents of all the GATE kids were high motivated and deeply involved in their kids lives. There was an inherent inequality about that. So I can see where @MacDre is coming from.
Bringing this back to vaccines, first, I want to say that this entire thread has been incredibly entertaining (in a good way). While I don't agree with a lot of what many you have to say, I'm sure we could knock back a beer or two and laugh about it. In a couple of weeks when we're getting our youngers vaccinated I will, no doubt, be thinking of you all.
