Today's news that a measles-infected LinkedIn employee may have exposed hundreds of SF Transit riders to the disease is keeping the already hot vaccination debate burning.
For many people following the story, this serves as yet more evidence that the upper middle class and the rich are the most likely culprits for vaccine non-compliance.
