The issue of vaccinating children for diseases has made headlines for much of 2015 because of the measles outbreak in California.

The Centers for Disease Control notes there have been 154 cases of measles so far in the U.S. this year, and urges people to get their children vaccinated.

While most people do get their kids vaccinated, there are a growing number of "anti-vaxxers" who refuse to do so. Many of these parents cite a long-debunked study, noted

Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Georgia) told a town hall last week that he and his wife didn't vaccinate most of their "healthy" children.

However, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel brought some doctors on his show last night in the form of a brutally honest public service announcement in which the physicians schooled and cursed parents for not getting their kids vaccinated, reports Pop Sugar (video below).
