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)

Update the Quack, there Are oral vaccines. (They must be too young to know about Polio). As for injectable food,, let me know when the coffee I.V. comes on the market.

If they keep anti-vaxxing, they'll learn about polio real soon.

Actually, most stuff that can be injected into you, like vaccines, would be totally safe to ingest. Worst case stomach acid or bowel fluid would degrade it or you'd get diarrhea. I dare you to try it with vaccinations. You won't get immunity, but nothing worse would happen.

In NZ, we have an oral vaccine for rotavirus, lol. You don't die, but you do get immunised against a horrible virus that used to send a lot of children and babies to the hospital.

At my old job, there were 5 women with 12 children under 10. When it would break out in the schools/day care, we called it Human Parvo. No one died, but they would get together and compare "how to clean poop or vomit" out of damn near everywhere!

this would be hilarious, had we not actually had ORAL VACCINE OPTIONS in many cases for a long time, and NASAL ones as well it's just more effective and controlled to go with the injection into a big muscle.... basic convo with my doctor covered that... and if a reaction occurrs you can see exactly where it came from.

Wow - unbelievable. i've been studying vaccines for over 7 years and know way more than almost all pediatricians and MDs - and i've NEVER run into "anti-vaxxers" like this. The stupid comments i normally hear are from the "JABBER" crowd. The vaxassination supporters that want everyone jabbed even though there is no proof of safety and no proof of effectiveness....

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...
