Fixed it for you.

They can't be well educated if they aren't vaccinating.

If they're really antivaxxers, they should seek out people with measles and hold a measles party for their kids. That way their kids can have lifetime immunity to measles. That's what lots of people did before there was a vaccine. Likewise people used to have chickenpox parties too.


Well, they probably decided, rightly so, that those parties are to dangerous. Back in the days there simply was nothing better you could do.

They are an especially bad way to find out your child is immune compromised ....

Just because you are educated does not mean you have the ability for logical/rational thought.
Never take financial advice from co-workers.

Not all degrees include that, and no matter how well you are educated, you can still be a Dunning-Kruger victim as well as the whole other lot...

They don't seem to have chosen rightly. If they had, they would have vaccinated their children against measles with the MMR. My mother was a speech therapist. She saw the effects of rubella on children whose mothers got rubella while pregnant. The MMR prevents measles, mumps and rubella. I was born before the mumps vaccination, so I had the mumps when I was 5. I was the most miserable from mumps than any childhood disease I had including chickenpox. My paternal uncle was not so lucky. He and my Dad got the mumps at the same time. My Dad was just 4, but his brother was 18. In adults the mumps often attacks the gonads. In my uncle's case they attacked his testes and rendered him sterile. He was never able to father children with his wife.
