My 91yo patient returns 4y after I was hit by a car. My old note states she would go "to farm every summer in MD, have raw milk daily, liked fresh ice cream, rode aunt's horse home from town at age 5 [it knew the way]."

Let the record show that it's possible for politicians with the most self-serving and political of motivations to stumble upon a really good idea. Such is the case with the latest blue state trend — proposed laws that require candidates running for president to release five years of tax returns or be denied a place on the ballot.

Shape your response so that it addresses the specific bit(s) of misinformation in the post, rather than a broad criticism of vaccine opposition
Science is a crucial component of combatting misinformation, but so are stories. Organizations like ShotByShot.Org, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Immunization Action Coalition and Texas Children's Hospital  http://www.immunizeusa.org/blog/2016/february/23/how-to-respond-to-inaccurate-posts-about-vaccines-on-social-media/
The Immunization Partnership is a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating vaccine-preventable diseases through education, advocacy and the promotion of best practices.
