Vaccine hesitancy is not so much a problem as a smart choice

In vaccines we no longer trust. Jennifer Margulis and Joe Wang explains why that’s a good thing.

In a recent article in Nature, freelance writer Michael Einstein reports that vaccination rates are falling—and not just because people are refusing the COVID-19 vaccines.

Indeed, global vaccine rates are at their lowest since 2008. The World Health Organization calls this the “largest sustained decline in childhood vaccinations in approximately 30 years.”

The draconian lockdowns imposed by state public health authorities in the United States and federal agencies in other countries made parents afraid, unwilling, or unable to bring their children to the doctor.

But, more importantly, the sudden deaths of young people associated with mRNA and other COVID-19 vaccines, as well as the slew of devastating side effects (including heart damage, abnormal blood, lethal clotting disorders, eye disturbances, and unusually fast-growing tumors), and a willful blindness on the part of the state and government agencies to the growing number of vaccine injuries have all contributed to the decline of trust in vaccines.

The experts Einstein interviewed believe that vaccine hesitancy and vaccine refusal is a bad thing. They’re concerned that families refusing vaccines will lead to millions of avoidable deaths worldwide.

“We’re talking about tens of millions of lives that are at stake,” Kate O’Brien, Executive Director of the International Vaccine Access Center at the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland, told Nature.

But we see the fact that parents seem less willing than ever to blindly believe everything health authorities try to force upon them as a good thing—a step forward towards more individualized medicine and away from profit-driven overmedication.
