And even though vaccination rates have rebounded some since
So in honor of World Immunization Week, take a moment to be thankful for having access to the measles vaccine. Not every kid has that luxury. Not every kid on the other side of the world. Not in every country. Not in every village.
If you have another minute here's what you can do before the bus comes or dinner burns (whichever happens first):

Thanks, I mean it. Tomorrow it's back to skewering the parenting media. I promise.
