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?!

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 not convinced by the portrayal of hygienic Helen (though I have zero experience with anti-vaxxers). I mean, if she understands they are safe and effective, how can she believe that disease was eradicated with soap? She either understands the mechanism or not.

Lace Neil

If the sole purpose of vaccines is to make money, then the NHS is doing it wrong by offering them for free. I think sometimes that a lot of these anti vaxxer morons are genuinely unaware that other countries exist outside America.

How could doctors possibly,profit from the free, routine vaccinations? Government funding is notoriously frugal by definition. The government won't pay for overpriced drugs if they have alternatives.

Industry peer review of autism: Literally - ONE ingredient, out of ONE vaccine.... Yep, thorough is a word they heard but DON'T understand. EPA website states there is NO safe level of either type of mercury for humans. (point- mine) Formaldehyde IS carcinogenic and neurotoxic. Yes - you meet some in nature, but NOT in those amounts and NEVER delivered directly into your muscles and short circuiting or bypassing your immune system protections. Uhm - can you say Bill Gates? Developing vaccines and literally stating that vaccination will cut down on the earth's population? Did you hear about Rockefeller Foundation developing the sterilizing agent hCG - human Chorionic Gonadotriptin - which shuts down female messenger molecules? This is put in vaccines - 2,300,000 Kenyan child-bearing females given "series of 3"tetanus shots. Like men/boys can't get tetanus, right? 200,000 Phillipino child-bearing females, same "tetanus" series. The hCG prevents the female body from knowing a fertile eg

fertile egg exists - so with the onset of next menstrual cycle the new baby is miscarried. India now is experimenting with this hCG component - IN VACCINES for the purpose of sterilizing the poor. Check. $$$? If a pediatrician keeps 64% of his practice up to CDC recommended schedule - they get $400 per kid. A practice of 3 pediatricians can make a bonus 2 million dollars each year by dumping uncooperative parents who drop their percentages and $$$. CDC is private Dunn&Bradstreet listed corporation. They hold 52 patents for vaccines and related things. They make over $6,000,000,000 per year on flu shots. No wonder that even when they admit they work, they still tell you to get a shot as the best thing. Hygiene (dirty cartoon face is propaganda) Well 99% of the diseases were eradicated PRIOR to vaccines being developed. The vaccine didn't make disease or death rates drop any faster. Diseases which we don't vaccinate for disappeared at the same time and rate as the vaccine diseases -

I really hope nobody thinks that making fun of people is going to change minds. Lower right is outright disingenuous. Vaccines didn't double the average life span, so stop trying to subtly equate it will all of modern medicine. Vaccine freaks use the exact same tactics as SJW's. They just insult and shout people down.

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...
