John Oliver on Vaccines

Of course, how could we not share another great John Oliver video that covers an ID topic even if it’s NSFW. One of the more insightful sections starts around 6:00, where he admits he understands why people are afraid of vaccines, since they are “getting injected by a needle filled with science juice.” He also describes antibiotics as “poison used to murder things living in you.” Now wouldn’t antimicrobial stewardship be easier if patients and physicians thought of antibiotics as poisons and not just magical pills that have few side effects? What if we treated antibiotics like cancer chemotherapies?
