Jennifer Lopez is joining the fight against Jenny McCarthy and the like, encouraging adults to get their whooping cough vaccines, and explaining perfectly what herd immunity is and why it’s important for everyone to get vaccinated.
The good news is that if you are an adult needing your TDaP vaccine and you’ll be at DragonCon this year, Skepchick has joined forces with the Women Thinking Free Foundation to host a vaccine clinic as a part of the WTFF’s Hug Me I’m Vaccinated campaign launch. The vaccines are completely free. All you have to do is walk over to the Mall at Peachtree Center, which is adjacent to the con, and follow the signs pointing to the Hug Me Vaccine Clinic.
And, as an added bonus, each free vaccine comes with a free hug!
If that’s not enough, then watch this video:
You can do your part to make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone you know. Get vaccinated. No one should have to die like this.
