“If you ask me the question, ‘What do I fear most about this whole pandemic?’ it’s actually not the variants. … It’s that there would be a significant percentage of the population that is going to choose not to vaccinate so much so that we can’t get to that 80+% of population immunity we need to slow this virus.” —Paul Offit

Understanding science

#159 – Peter Hotez, M.D., Ph.D.: Evolution of the anti-vaccine movement, the causes of autism, and COVID-19 vaccine state of affairs
