Vaccines: It’s Up to You

Vaccines: It’s Up to You

A few weeks ago, I shared part of an online conversation I had about vaccines. Initially, I was hesitant to reply but after rereading a callous response made by a woman I’d never met, I needed say something.

Long a staple of high school and college literature classes, the story is set in the year 2540 AD—or rather, 632 AF (“After Ford,” a nod to the introduction of the Model T car and the technology…
