Vaccines are not a Democrat-Republican issue, or a left-right issue. Vaccines are a matter of public health. The only division is between the rational and the irrational.

I'm hearing that the anti-vaxxers are all over him for this stance, although I'm waiting for the evidence. Meanwhile, I think it's great to have a leading statewide official standing for public health and safety.
