❝.. Well, science depends on whether you believe that science is the final say on everything. ..❞
— Michael Leunig (2015-May-29), ABC News Breakfast.


Michael Leunig is known for being pretty much out there with a whimsical Mr Curly approach to life, but recently Leunig has gone off into the anti-vax deep end. His cartoon today in The Age ‘Immunisation!!!’ with the *Evil Science Pixies* has been one of several recent anti-vax opinion pieces, this was a follow up to his interview on ABC News Breakfast where he compared vaccination to Thalidomide.
