Since when did getting vaccinated become a religious issue, except for faith healers, some Christian Scientists? Or even more, a political test of loyalty? With these folks, polio would still be rampant. Maybe it is a pride that doesn’t allow folks to admit they were wrong. Half a million plus … dead wrong.
