Listen to Paul, learn from history

 “Because we are unwilling to learn from history, we are starting to relive it. And children are the victims of our ignorance. An ignorance that, ironically, is cloaked in education, wealth and privilege.”

— Dr. Paul A. Offit, professor of pediatrics in the division of infectious diseases and director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
