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!

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...

I wish someone would explain herd immunity to her, but doubt that she could grasp that her little bovines are healthy because others are getting immunized. I'd write "ignorant cow," but that would be an insult to cows everywhere.

Herd immunity was THEORIZED by MDs in the 1940s - PRIOR to vaccines for measles. They noted that when outbreaks had about 40% or so of the children infected (and in those days with permanent immunity - not vaccine bullshit "maybe" protection of 2-8 yrs) When that level was reached, outbreaks decreased until only about 10-12% of the youth were infected, at which point the outbreaks increased until the higher numbers were reached. Since vaccines can NEVER give immunity, they can't even do the protection of the 40s, lol. NOW the vax industry is calling for not 40-percent for herd protection, but it went to 60%, 70% 90% and then 95% and now some are calling for 99% and 100%. Bull. China has 99% compliance in a province with 300,000,000 people. 707 outbreaks. Not herd immunity. S Korea tried with chicken pox - now at 97% infant, 95% society compliance. Their chicken pox rate is 5X greater than when they started in 2005. You have been lied to about herd immunity. Can't with shots.

Right. Your neighbor didn't take her birth control pill so you are going to get pregnant because of that. If a kid doesn't have a disease - they don't have a disease. How can some person's NOT DOING A DAMN THING attract every damn pathogen in three counties, NOT affect the unvaccinated, and then wreak havoc and hell through the supposedly protected vaccine community? That is total bullshit, faulty logic, garbage propaganda. From reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction testing- we KNOW that there are times when the virus from the vaccine - in a vaccinated person, sheds and causes outbreaks. This is documented. We've never yet found a child without measles giving measles to anyone - and if your kid is all shot up, what is your worry - or are you actually intelligent enough to be aware that in current outbreaks - MOST of the infected people are vaccinated AGAINST THE DISEASE THEY JUST GOT and the vaccine just didn't phukken WORK!

Here's the bullshit of the response. 1 - vaccines are poorly tested for safety and have NEVER had a truly scientific safety test by the industry or the CDC. The ONLY way that you can prove safety in this instance is to compare your study group to a control group THAT HAS INERT INGREDIENTS THAT CAUSE NO BIOCHEMICAL ACTIVITY in the controol group. This never happens. Look at the MMRII vax insert - doc won't let you have it so look it up online. The "safety study" gave the study group MMRII AND 2 OTHER SHOTS. The fake control group RECEIVED THE TWO SHOTS WITHOUT THE MMR and a fake MMR shot with the other toxic ingredients. OF COURSE the outcomes are going to be extremely similar in biochemical response - and the industry labels this as being insignificantly different from the control group and therefore safe." That is total bullshit anti-science. It would be like making a cyanide vaccine and having the control group take arsenic. Both have some deaths and some sickness, but since they

are pretty similar, there is "no significant difference between the study and control groups" so like the vax industry you can pretend your cyanide vaccine is safe. Know more than your doctor? That's fukn EASY - they literally get a SHORT afternoon of flawed vax theory, dishonest history full of easily disproven lies, and the current CDC schedule. That's it. Nothing on ingredients, or genetic susceptibility or testing to find if your mitochondria put you at proven higher risk of autism. Nothing about the carcinogens, nothing about how your humoral immune system works, nothing about how people WITHOUT antibodies fight the same diseases and have the same outcomes as people with antibodies (which makes "antigen response" as a measure of vax effectiveness total bullshit) and on and on. They don't learn about Original Antigenic Sin, about the Canadian Flu Paradox, about the many examples proving there is no such thing as herd immunity from vaccines and in fact that vaccines provide zero
