To the editor:
The anti-vaxers have been busy demonstrating around the country. One person was observed carrying a placard that read: “My body, My choice, Includes vaccines too.” That person should be thankful that parents, without giving a choice to their children, have them vaccinated against various diseases. Another placard stated: “COVID-19 is a scam.” With that line of reasoning, small pox, polio, measles, rubella, chicken pox, and other diseases are also scams.
A person observing the anti-vaccine rally and wearing a protective mask was asked why she was vaccinated. Her response: “It’s my civic duty.” Yes, with freedom comes responsibility — to yourself, your family, and to society.
