WHAT have vaccines ever done for us?

Well, they’ve eliminated smallpox.

They’ve severely restricted diseases that were once widespread, causing them to be eliminated altogether in some parts of the world - these include polio, tetanus, influenza, hepatitis B, hepatitis A, rubella, measles, whooping cough, pneumococcal

disease, rotavirus, mumps, chickenpox, diphtheria.

Now we have a crisis on our hands: Covid.

We have a vaccine for it.

For heaven’s sake, that is good news.

So why are the anti-vaxxers up in arms?

Why are they trying to spread confusion about it?

What are they afraid of?

They were out in force in Stroud High Street recently spreading their totally irresponsible message.

Please, people, do not be misled by them.

Lives depend on it!
