The vast majority of pro-vaxxers are content advocating behind a screen–whether they are emailing lawmakers, commenting on social media, or sharing online articles. But when the anti-vaxxers roll a bus into their neighborhoods, sitting behind a screen no longer suffices.
Enter Craig Egan. This Tacoma, Washington father is known in pro-vaccine circles as their funny friend who somehow changes the minds of certain kinds of vaccine refusers. Recently, though, he has put down his laptop (after setting up a GoFundMe account) and taken to the road, following a bus/RV/vector that has been promoting the Wakefield-produced anti-vaccine film Vaxxed.
It sounds like a publicity stunt or a lark, but along the way, Craig has met fascinating people and come back with some real insights. We invite you to listen to our conversation with Craig on our podcast.
