Colbert Calls Vaccines a "Waste of Money" Since Kids Didn't Get Sick

Dr. Paul Offit talks about vaccines with Steven Colbert on Monday night.  This is Colbert at his absolute best.  By asking absurd questions and making equally absurd claims, Colbert allows Dr. Offit to take down the many baseless arguments against vaccines.


"I feel like a chump because I had my kids immunized against Rubella.  Guess what? They never got Rubella.  It was a waste of money." - Colbert's best line

Offit makes a great argument saying that there are 500,000 people who cannot be vaccinated due to sicknesses.  We must all be vaccinated in order to prevent it from spreading to the the few who are not.
