A fifteen page story about the MMR vaccination controversy. As ever, I'm sure a few spelling errors have slipped past me. Feel free to point any out so I can correct them.

The reference links for the strip are in the next blog entry.

Now! Let's have a heated debate!

2013 update. Since I wrote this blog entry, this cartoon strip as well as many others on such subjects as homeopathy, chiropratic, evolution, and the supposed NASA Moon hoax landings, have been published in a book: Science Tales in the UK (Myriad Edtions) and How To Fake A Moon Landing in the US and Canada (Abrams). Here's the link to my main blog.

I don't know if this has already been mentioned in the comments (there are a lot and I'm lazy), but this week in Wales a young man died of measles. Even if there was a link between the two (which there isn't), which would you rather have - an autistic kid or a dead one? As the mother of an autistic kid, I can say without a doubt which I'd choose.

Wakefield should be prosecuted for manslaughter for every person who has died of measles because their parents chose not to vaccinate them based on his lies.

In the late 70's my mother decided not to vaccinate my youngest sister because she'd been taken in by someone claiming a link between whooping cough vaccine and eczema. She thought that the chance of her catching it in our isolated farming community was small. It wasn't, thanks to the hundreds of other mothers who had also been taken in. My sister was only three years old when she caught it, she was deathly ill for months, and her lungs were permanently damaged. Last year 14 children died of whooping cough in the UK.

Not getting kids vaccinated doesn't just put the child at risk, it puts the whole community at risk. A child with measles/whooping cough/etc, walking into a hospital can have a devastating effect on immune-compromised patients, babies and hospital staff.
