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)

My #1 dispute against anti-vaxxers is this- the government needs tax payers to grow old and work for as long as possible to continue to fill government pockets. Why would they deliberately and knowingly make people sick/kill people?? The government would go broke. Their argument is redundant

It doesn't matter what qualifications you have, what experience, what relevant job, these people do not want to hear it and so will not, ever. And they absolutely cannot ever be seen to back down either, or that will make their life a mockery, and who wants that? They love their high horse. You cannot win.

They don't know how vaccins work... No science. They have statistic proof. And for example,they vacationed survivors of an epidemic on an island and after they claim the vaccins works, but the people were resistant anyway. So this is how they got statistic working. Amalgam in fillings contain mercury and are leaking mercury , uh polio vaccine safe?

Whenever a thing doesn't make sense, try following the money. Won't always lead to something, but it often does. There is no proof that vaccines cause autism (& a lot of evidence against it). However, there are other chemicals kids consume frequently, if not every day, that have been correlated to increased risk of development or behavioral disorders. When people are falsely blaming vaccines for these problems, it allows big companies to keep making chemicals that MAY harm children without many waves. The pharmaceutical companies make money off the drugs to try to treat the problems. See one of the worst, chlorpyrifos, a nerge agent: https://earthjustice.org/features/what-you-need-to-know-about-chlorpyrifos. How often do you hear about this? "Chlorpyrifos is acutely toxic and associated with neurodevelopmental harms in children. Prenatal exposures to chlorpyrifos are associated with lower birth weight, reduced IQ, loss of working memory, attention disorders, and delayed motor..."

On the other hand i went to the EPA site 2 yrs ago and the human safe level for both ethyl and methyl mercury were 0.0 parts per billion - (fiction) NO LEVEL OF MERCURY IN ANY FORM IS SAFE IN HUMANS and that "silver amalgam filling" that is about 52% mercury in your mouth? By law (not that it's followed) your dentist has to pull that from your mouth and put it in a level III toxic waste dump.

There has never been a placebo controlled study on vaccinations. Interestingly for half a century we believed sugar was fine until we found the proof had been hidden from us. Tobacco too. As a victim myself of a serious vaccine reaction, I think parents should have the right to choose.

It is also striking that anti-vaxxers seem to be (borderline?) autistic in not accepting clear evidence just because it doesn’t fit their view of things...

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!

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...
