When Celebrities Should Shut the F**K Up and Talk to a Doctor

June 10, 2008

Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards are fighting some more, this time their girls are caught in the cross fire.  While media whoring Richards is usually just as wrong as the womanizing junkie Sheen, in this situation I side with her.  Like a small but growing group of uninformed, reckless parents Sheen doesn’t want his children vaccinated.

I have news for you Charlie: vaccinations are safe and effective.  negative reactions are rare.  autism has not been linked to vaccines.  the biggest vaccine problems occur from improper supervision afterwards (parents need to monitor for a fever) or allergic reactions.  but more important than all the science in the world, since some parents will believe whatever they want anyway: vaccination is not just about your kids, it makes all kids safer to be in an immunized community.

And so the tool bag of the day award goes to Charlie Sheen.
