So Wrong! America’s Modern Angel of Death?

Thanks to advances in medicine we have inoculations which can prevent a number of illnesses and vaccinations which can reduce the severity of others. But there will always be those who believe they’re the ones most interested in and responsible for their own well being, and not their doctors, politicians, or press.

So, how do doctors try to get as many people as possible to take inoculations and vaccinations?

Well, back in May 2016 Dr. Carol Baker, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics, Molecular Virology and Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas provides her suggestion during a medical panel discussion:

“Achieving Childhood Vaccination Success in the U.S.”.


“…We’re talking about the minority [of vaccine refusers], and strategies against the minority. So I have the solution: Every study published in the last five years, when you look at vaccine refusers, I’m not talking about hesitance, most of them we can talk them into coming to terms, but refusers. We’ll just get rid of all the whites in the United States, because, Houston is the most diverse city in the entire United States. There are seven Asian language [sic] spoken in that city, I’ve been a minority for more than twenty years in the city of Houston, the majority is we call “Hispanic”, that is not a race or an ethnicity, that’s a political designation, but a lot of them are from Central, South America, Mexico. Guess who wants to get vaccinated the most? Immigrants!”

Dr. Baker was also the Chairperson of the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) from 2009-12: Fortunately for all the Caucasians out there she either didn’t make this suggestion to the Committee or her colleagues rejected it.

Her comment of “Every study published in the last five years” implies most of the vaccine “refusers” are White people.

Really, Doctor? What about this medical study, published in April, 2016, before your seemingly genocidal suggestion?

“Regarding children, there were racial/ethnic differences for three of the reasons for non-vaccination, and these remained significant in the multivariable models. The most noteworthy of these was that more black (44.4%) than white (24.0%) and other/multiple race (19.0%) parents had concerns about their child getting the flu from the vaccination.”

BTW: If you have some spare time, Dr. Baker, take a glance at medical studies published from 2011 to 2016 discussing vaccine refusal and hesitancy among racial / ethnic groups, with a focus on pediatrics.
