The smallpox vaccination was invented in 1796.
For cholera, we had to wait until 1885.
For diptheria, 1921.
Thank you, scientists around the world, for these and many, many more medical miracles.
It is not the majority that is excluding the unvaccinated from enjoying the simplicities of life – but by placing themselves above the wisdom of scientists, the un-vaccinated also place themselves outside of mainstream community living.
But no doubt they will continue to enjoy the benefit of other scientific inventions such as clean water, electricity, plentiful food, mechanized transportation, etc., etc.
