now i'm no public health expert, but i do try to keep up on such things. from what i understand all that noise about vaccinations being linked to autism was based on faulty science. that's not to say there might not still be a link. however, the link between low rates of vaccination and outbreaks of diseases we thought were licked is known and quite strong. in other words, folks, i agree with the overall message of the entire campaign that includes this ad i saw on the train.
what i find hopelessly funny is that a public health ad would show the sick person taking their temperature with the thermometer in backwards. "wow, honey, you've got a fever, but your temperature's also a perfect 72F room temperature. this must be a new strain of flu. why didn't we get the vaccination?!! WHY?!!!"
