An open letter to Congress on immunization policy

In the leadup to Jenny McCarthy’s little antivaccination-fest tomorrow, it appears the the medical community has at least roused itself enough to write an open letter to Congress about immunizations. It’s not much, but at least it’s something. I hope all the signatories are ready for a P.R. blitz to counter Jenny McCarthy.

That’s enough about this for now. I don’t plan on blogging about it tomorrow unless something really interesting comes up. Maybe I’ll do an all-science Wednesday instead after I get back from ASCO this afternoon.
