Delta Airlines is running an insidious anti-vaccination ad on their in-flight TV right now, sponsored by the notorious reality-challenged (and Orwellianly-named) National Vaccine Information Center. These ads make it out as if getting the flu is no big deal, when in fact preventing the flu is a very
big deal. The link below from Skepchick.org will give you the details.
I will not fly Delta until they remove these ads. It's that simple. I tweeted about it (http://twitter.com/#!/BadAstronomer/status/132116584591409154
) and I ask folks to spread the word.
Vaccines are one of the greatest achievements of medical science, saving millions of lives every year
. I won't sit back and let a well-funded fringe groups spread blatantly false misinformation about them.
