The mainstream media begrudgingly was forced into reporting news that doesn’t comfortably intertwine within their narrative. NBC News is reporting that support for vaccines has languished over the past ten years.
NBC was quick to clarify that “most Americans still vaccinate,” but the issue is in how they feel about them. In other words, even people who still use vaccinations don’t trust them nearly as much as they once did.
“This is a flag that confidence is slipping a bit,” said Mary Woolley, president and CEO of Research America, which commissioned the survey (NBC News article).
The CDC touts that almost 90% of kids under 3-years-old get their recommended vaccines, however, the powers that be are clearly concerned with dropping sentiment. The pharmaceutical industry got overly greedy by pushing more and more vaccines, leading many parents to question all vaccines. Oddly, had the CDC simply kept the schedule from the 80’s in place, its unlikely vaccine sentiments would have changed.
The article goes on to blame anti-vaxxers for “measles and whooping cough outbreaks” and recites the flawed concept of “herd immunity.”
Asked “how important do you believe vaccines are to the health of our society today,” 70 percent said “very important” and 22 percent said “somewhat important”. In 2008, 80 percent said they were very important and 17 percent said somewhat important.
“It’s hard to believe that there’s anybody who doesn’t think it is important,” Woolley said.
Well, the numbers certainly don’t lie.
