Yes We Can

I was listening to my 10 daily minutes of NPR (otherwise known as "shower radio time") and there was a science friday show about the vaccination issue. Whoever they had on the program (a researcher of some sort) made an offhand remark about how while people trust their Pediatricians on this issue, we [roughly] "can't send them door to door." It was just a throwaway remark without much context, so I'm not knocking the guy, but, you know, we could send Pediatricians (or nurses) door to door if we wanted to! If ever there is, say, a measles epidemic, I'm pretty sure we will (or at least certainly should!) send them door to door. Because, you know, public health.
