This is the most intelligent, researched, nuanced and practically examination of the data and questions raised by the current iteration on the vaccine debate. I am thinking of asking her to send a copy to the Australian Federal Government too. Not that they are interested in research, intelligence, nuance or practicality. But please, read this through and distribute widely. It is also supported by the Public Health academics whom I have heard on NPR and in Australia. The current wedge politics, discrimination, intimidation of parents is not helpful to get enough people vaccinated (who are educated and choose that) and allow the people who choose not to (who are also educated and choose that) to co-exist, even in the public schools system.

Dear Legislator:My name is Tetyana Obukhanych. I hold a PhD in Immunology. I am writing this letter in the hope that it will correct several common misperceptions about vaccines in order to help you formulate a fair and balanced understanding that is supported by accepted vaccine theory and new scientific findings.Do unvaccinated children pose a higher threat to the public than the vaccinated?
