And now a word from your local public health authorities…

Headline from a Scientific American blog posting:

Measles is back, and it’s because your kids aren’t vaccinated

There was a measles epidemic in the canton of Vaud in Switzerland this year. MSF was thinking about intervening and setting up a vaccination site in Place Ripon, but the corrupt, inefficient, and chronically underfunded local health authorities managed to handle the crisis themselves and MSF just monitored the situation from it’s base in Geneva.

Hello parents…. it is not the vaccine that is hurting kids, it’s your stupidity. And, unfortunately, there is no vaccine for stupidity (though turning off the TV certainly helps some).
