Finds anti-vaccine ad is inappropriate

OlympiaMarch 20, 2013 

I find it incredible that on the heals of a pertussis epidemic in Washington state, Clear Channel thinks it appropriate to advertise anti-vaccination propaganda and misinformation on its billboard downtown.

NVIC is the nation’s leading anti-vaccination lobby group and continues to ignore credible evidence proving the efficacy of vaccinations, instead choosing to publish hyperbole and innuendo. These baseless rumors spread like wildfire, leading to outbreaks of horrifying, heart wrenching illness and death among our state’s youths.
