Comical Immunity

Speaking of vaccines, my pal Maki Naro is a fantastic illustrator and pro-science guy, and he just put up a wonderful comic about why vaccines are important.

I love this. He hits on lots of critical topics, like how our immune system works, how vaccines prime that system to fight off diseases, why herd immunity is important, and why it's hard to keep up with evolving viruses.

Just as importantly, he hammers the anti-vaxxers who so richly deserve it, like Jenny McCarthy, Andrew Wakefield, and RFK Jr. Maki shows why their claims are not just wrong but in most cases hugely, egregiously wrong. And it's all done in a lovely, palatable comic form, making it easy and fun to read. 

Maki draws more comics like this for Popular Science, too. I like his style, and I hope you do too.
