I noticed a political cartoon in the July 17 edition of The Herald apparently mocking Dr. Anthony Fauci for encouraging vaccinations. I wondered if such a cartoon would also apply to Dr. Jonas Salk, who was responsible for the development and encouragement of the polio vaccine?
Should it apply to those other scientists and researchers responsible for the development of antibiotics, tuberculosis, MMR and small pox vaccines? Sadly, this covid pandemic has been politicized from the beginning and should not have been. Ignorance and misinformation has added to hospitalizations and deaths that could have been avoided. A political cartoon such as this one only adds to the general pandemonium of misinformation.
