The Upside of the Measles Outbreak in California

It appears that parents are now looking for pediatricians who refuse antivaxxers as patients, because they are affraid of their wee bairns picking up something in the waiting room from unvaccinated kids:
Pediatricians around the country, faced with persistent opposition to childhood vaccinations, are increasingly grappling with the difficult decision of whether to dismiss those families from their practices to protect their other patients.

Doctors say they are more willing to take this last-resort step because the anti-vaccine movement in recent years has contributed to a resurgence of preventable childhood diseases such as measles, mumps and whooping cough. Their practices also have been emboldened by families who say they will only choose physicians who require other families to vaccinate.
Here's hoping this this becomes far more wide spread.

The science is bad, and they are putting other people's lives at risk.
