Dear parents, you are being lied to.

Non-vaccination (whether willfully ignorant or simply negligent) has been causing outbreaks of ENTIRELY PREVENTABLE DISEASES here in Orange County. Kids are getting violently sick because their parents are not doing their job in taking proper care of their children.
