Whether or not to vaccinate your children has continued to be a hot button argument across discussion platforms. Famous make-up and tattoo artist Kat Von D got in hot water recently for posting on Instagram that her unborn baby would not be vaccinated.

While substantial research shows vaccines are safe and vital in disease prevention, refusal of childhood vaccines at the doctor is on the rise. It could be argued that having these famous allies has emboldened anti-vaxxer groups, whatever the reason never shy away from sharing their opinions online. When science isn't on your side it can make these arguments tricky, but as you’ll see in these examples that doesn't stop them from trying. Some people tried to embellish their medical background, while others could benefit from a class in logic.

Bored Panda shares some of the best anti-vaxxer fails below, to show you better have your proof together before coming to the internet. (Facebook cover image: MangoStar Studio l Cover image: Andriano Cz)

Do people don't understand we have dangerous diseases that can't be obliterated by our immune system alone because a) those diseases are new b) therefore our immune system isn't familiar with them and can't fight on its own?!

Wow. I wish when people are trying to sound more intelligent and learned that all the doctors, scientists and biologists, that they would learn to spell and at least take a stab at punctuation. They'd still sound ignorant, but at least it wouldn't be so painful to read their arguments.

My doctor has a Facebook page, it has been fun over the years watching her eviscerate anti-vaxxers and anti-flu shot proponents with facts and logic. Some idiot came at her with the "for profit" argument about the flu shots and she gave a very detailed, itemized list of her expenses regarding flu shots and explained how she not only doesn't make a profit, some years takes a huge loss and made him look like a total dolt. She's awesome!

I'm a type 1 diabetic and I got the disease at the age of 4 when my immune system couldn't cope with a really really bad flu. It basically ate everything that was inside of my pancreas. I did happen to also get a vaccine against that particular flu which happened to kill a bunch of people that year. I had an anti-vaxx guy in a Diabetes group literally harass me when the topic of "How did you get your diabetes" came up because he insisted that my diabetes is due to the vaccines. No sir. If I didn't get those vaccines I would've probably died. I'm lucky I got away with an autoimmune disease. I had to block the guy.

Here's a bit of useless knowledge; Before "diabetes" was coined the medical personnel of the past knew of a disease that the sufferer had sweet smelling urine. They determined someone had this condition by putting the patient's urine in a pan and watched to see if ant's were attacked.

Before reliable diabetes treatment, children had diabetes 1, and died before diagnosis, and had they lived, it would have been in misery.

Um... pardon me if I'm wrong, but isn't type 1 diabetes very rarely contracted later on in life? I thought it was more commonly born with.

Type 1 is a genetic disease and the way you live has nothing to do with it. If it runs in the family you're more likely to get it but if and when it appears is completely random.

Oh my. They probably didn't catch it and die from it because all the sane people who are vaccinated massively reduced everyone's odds of catching it. How can these people not see that, if we all gave up vaccines, these diseases would re-establish over time?!

Strictly speaking, Washington had his troops variolated - innoculated with a less deadly form of the smallpox virus, variola major. Soon after Washington's innoculation process Edward Jenner worked out that inoculation with the much more harmless vaccinia virus (commonly known at the time as copox) gave cross-protection with smallpox, and instituted the practice of vaccination. Washington's innoculation, whilst completely successful, was more potentially more dangerous, but it certainly helped to establish the principle of protection by innoculation. And finally - antivaccination is a totally borked notion...
