Vaccination vs. Evolution

A few reports of measles are launched into the news-o-sphere while anti-vaxxers are demonized. The Ontario Government adds a few more “required” vaccines to every school child’s immunization schedule while simultaneously permitting children to opt out of the requirement to be vaccinated at all. Methinks there is a lot of nonsense going on in the market for mass immunization.

Modern vaccination can be wonderful on an individual basis but it runs counter to human evolutionary salvation. I am an anti-vaccinator for different curious reasons but I want to explore mass vaccination campaigns solely from an evolutionary perspective. Increasing numbers of weak members of the gene pool make human survival increasingly more expensive and less predictable in the future.

For their own sake, I would rather my sons had a healthy, strong and reliable female gene-pool from which to choose their mates than what the future of mass vaccination has to offer.
