Decline in herd immunity in the US

by Sofia

Much in line with the article I posted yesterday about how scientific fact can be easily disregarded comes this one about the decline of herd immunity in the United States due to a high rate of parents ditching vaccinations.

This is what the postmodern world looks like: one in which science and its hard-earned truth is merely one of many viable stories that can be subscribed to. It is not the end-all, and is not respected as such. So maybe I’m a modernist, after all.
