The risk is better than the alternative

Are these vaccines—is this injection—100 percent safe? As a parent of two children that go to this school, I’m not willing to take the chance on a question mark.

This is infuriating. Nothing is 100% safe – do you drive your kids to work? Do you wear seatbelts? Why? Because they are safer than driving without them, despite the fact that they could, perhaps, kill your child.

Like everything else, it’s a risk, but that risk is absolutely better than the alternative. I have a feeling these parents know this, but want to outsource that risk to other parents/children so that they can go on living their lives with the knowledge that other people will pull the weight of public health for them.
