Jimmy Kimmel catches hell from anti-vaxxers, launches counter-attack

Given the fact that Jimmy Kimmel is a comedian and not a medical professional, he enlisted the help of trained medical professionals to record an exasperated PSA urging parents to vaccinate their children.

Not everyone was willing to see the light however, and Kimmel was subject to an onslaught of responses by crazed anti-vaxxers accusing him of being a corporate shill on behalf of Big Pharma, among other things. He reads the “best” of the responses on air before unleashing his own team of anti-vaxxers out into the wild to ask parents if they believe children should have a choice regarding vaccinations. Or, in this case, they want to know if children should have a choice between a shot in the arm with a needle or a sweet lollipop.
