Letter: Anti-vaxxers’ children are victims

My granddaughter’s close friend nearly died from measles. She was born prematurely and couldn’t be vaccinated for a while. When she was in the pediatrician’s office, another child came in who had the measles because her parents were anti-vaxxers. It took heroic measures, but she survived.

The ignorance and disregard for other people’s health of the anti-vaxxers is incredible. Unfortunately, their innocent children are the victims of their guilty parents’ attitudes and need to be segregated.
