The most controversial issue, at least in my own mind, is the use of cell strains for vaccine research and production. Most people know little about why cell strains are important, and how these cell strains came about. Are vaccines complicit in abortion?
Since Jenner developed the first vaccine for smallpox, vaccine proponents experienced opposition. All subsequent vaccines faced that barrier to one degree or another, and the coronavirus vaccine is no different. Public trust eroded for both founded and unfounded reasons. Parents need the facts in order to decide about the coronavirus vaccine.
