(Prepare For Change) “We have to maintain 95% vaccine coverage to prevent outbreaks!” they say. Translation: we need to blame the 2% of people who conscientiously opt-out of some or all vaccines for the fact that we have a few dozen cases of measles in the country. Now math is sort of my thing, but I know it’s not everyone’s. If we take 2% of those filing for exemptions and subtract it from 100% of the population, we end up with 98%…a number that is already higher than the “95% threshold” they claim we need to eradicate measles. →
