David Ashton, Mullumbimby.
Isn’t it ironic that in a week when the anti-vaxxers are in full flight we have a serious outbreak of whooping cough in our area.
Congratulations Dr Douglas. You have sent a clear message. Vaccinations save lives. Talk of using science to refute the proven science of vaccinations is a red herring. The science is in and the results are clear.
Terrible diseases which have ravaged the world are now almost non existent. Yes, they exist in some places, mainly where there is no orderly vaccination program in place or where people choose not to participate.
Why put up a smoke screen regarding smoking? We know it destroys lives but this has no bearing on the topic of vaccination. And why raise the topic of asthma? Another red herring.
Vaccinations save lives.
