    My father’s parents were told he would die when he had polio and was hospitalized. I wouldn’t be here if the doctors were right. My mother was a little girl when the vaccine was new. Antivaxxers piss me off.

      My mom knew jack about science, nor cared. But she went off about how thankful they were for the polio vaccine. As a child, they were all scared shitless of it.

      Said much the same for smallpox. She had one of those ring scars from back in the day.
