16 Reasons Why Vaccinating Your Kids Is The Worst Thing You Can Do

It's just plain irresponsible.

Posted on

You know, these days there's a whole lot in the news about people deciding not to vaccinate their children. In fact, anti-vaxxers have been called everything from "incredibly stupid" to "astoundingly dumb" to "shockingly ignorant".

Well, they're also another thing: completely right! I'm here to say why absolutely NO ONE should vaccinate their kids.

1. Honestly, this looks fun!

2. Sign me up!

#ThrowbackThursday 1946 was considered the worst yr for Polio in US. We had 3 "iron lung" machines to treat patients!

3. This doesn't look bad at all.

People, this is what measles looks like. Get your kids vaccinated:

4. Nope, not bad at all.

5. I mean, come on! Think of the children!

This is what life was life before vaccination.

6. This is nothing!

8. Looks perfectly fine and normal to me.
