Colbert and the Anti-Vaxxers

Sometimes, other folks make it easy for me. I have nothing to add to this.

Except maybe this, also from Stephen Colbert, which is the next segment on his show where he interviews pro-health hero Paul Offit.

Oh, I'll add this, since Colbert doesn't really debunk it: Vaccines do not cause autism, the vast majority of vaccines don't contain mercury, the one flu shot that still does doesn't have it in a toxic form, and even then it has a dose smaller than what you get eating a can of tuna.

Vaccines are important. Talk to your board-certified health care provider and see if you need to get yours.
