Dear Anti-Vaxxers: Mosquitos And Ticks Are Right Now Vaccinating Your Child

by Richard Sullivan

Illogical parents who don’t give a whit about their child or yours have been enlisting their own precious offspring to work out their personal conspiracy issues as they relate to vaccinations against deadly crippling pandemics.

These parents are somehow unaware that all summer long their kids are being vaccinated — daily.

Mosquitos, flies, bees, wasps, ticks, mites, fleas, bedbugs and other stinging, biting, chewing, blood-sucking organisms are having at us wholesale. The common backyard mosquito needles deep into our blood vessels, injecting bacteria, viruses and assorted filth, leading to West Nile virus disease, malaria and other horrors. Ticks inject us with Lyme disease. Both insects have historically proven to be deadly little bastards, yet anti-vaxxers seem to be fine with this.

I see no organized effort by these parents to rid our environment of any of these trillions of living pests despite the death and damage they have caused to millions of humans. Why aren't these concerned parents wrapping their children in mosquito netting and dunking them in 55 gallon barrels of insect repellant?

Interestingly, this week news of a malaria vaccine approved for use in Europe presents a conundrum for anti-vaxxers: should you vaccinate your child against a disease that is itself caused by entomological vaccination?
