With the spotlight shining firmly on the havoc wreaked by vaccine deniers, tons of material for and against vaccination has received huge engagement on the Internet.
Anyone who has followed DeadState knows exactly where we stand on the issue, and as the debate (or lack thereof) has progressed, so has the focus.
