Vaccines save lives. According to the CDC, if we could vaccinate every child born in the U.S. this year, we would save 33,000 lives, prevent 14 million infections, and save over $10 billion in health care costs. If Ms. Dunkle and other anti-vaccine activists succeed, children will fall ill, and some will die. Very young infants, the elderly, and people with compromised immunity are particularly at risk. We mustn't let Ms. Dunkle's fear-mongering and misinformation spread further.
