  1. People please, let’s us not be divided between vaxxers and anti vaxxers.

    We all know the terms should be survivors and future slaves of the enhanced human race

  2. See, number 1 proves anti-vaxxers are morons and a threat to the survival of the human race. The rest of these are just due to impoverished countries and I do feel really bad for them. Seriously, my heart goes out to them.

  3. Polio I have polio my mom never vaccinated me the emotional and physical pain as been unbearable please please vaccinate your children

  4. One of my uber drivers had polio and his legs were amputated. Now he drives with metal rods on the brake and gas.

  5. Bruh I’ve had whooping cough like fucking 7 times in the last 3 years and I have never coughed more
