VACCINES: Make world safer

| May 27, 2020 1:00 AM

There is much discussion now about vaccines. There will be a lot of trial and error before the new one is ready and we can’t be hasty.

In defense of vaccines in general, if smallpox, measles, whooping cough or polio re-surged nowadays it would make COVID-19 seem like a Sunday School picnic. My generation grew up with all of these. We had most of them and we feared the IRON LUNG (look it up).

To not have a defense for these would de-populate the planet more than anything Bill Gates is accused of proposing. Personally, I was glad to be able to defend my children from what we grew up with. I’m grateful to those who made the world safer for children.
