Exercise 15, No Jab No Play
Mr Jeff advocates the withdrawal of all children from day-care centres if they are not fully immunised. (big picture) To increase his credibility/authenticity/trustworthiness, he uses his experience/knowledge/expertise as a public health consultant and staunchly/stridently defends the public health needs of all children in day-care facilities.
Mr Jeff encourages families to vaccinate their children by depriving childcare benefits from those who don’t.
(persuasive word level analysis) He seeks to shame/ isolate those parents who appear to be self-indulgently protecting their own “trendy lifestyle” at the expense of the general health of the community.
Mr Jeff also encourages citizens to support a harsh /uncompromising policy stance against those who fail to immunise.
The colloquial reference to the fact that such children should be “yanked out of school’ leaves parents and policy officials in no doubt as to the harsh/tough measures that must be taken.
