But that my experience also matches the above study probably means I’m not living inside some weird bubble with regard to this. (For the record, too, all the politically active Democrats who seem progressive that I know personally are pro-vax.)

You and can match off our respective different experiences with regard to this, but did you read the study? Basically: anti-vaxxers vary a lot and are all over the political spectrum, though the study finds there’s more of a tilt to the Right. Not a big one though and not enough to define as a Right phenom with a few Left and others added to the mix.

And don’t get me wrong here. I’m aware of Left anti-bad people. I’m just talking about my friends, colleagues, and acquittances — the ones who’ve mentioned being vaccinations at all. I don’t go around pestering people on this and I don’t have any professional role that would me ask them.
