Nobody wants to face the public wrath of the internet but anti-vaxxers experience this daily as people continue to troll them, however, you know what's even worse than getting challenged by someone you don't know online - someone online with a medical degree. That's right according to data analysis from CNN measles cases in the United States have surpassed the highest number on record since the disease was declared eliminated nationwide in 2000.

Doctors are employing all strategies to fight the disease from using electronic medical records to identify unvaccinated patients living in outbreak zones to refusing to accept patients who haven't been vaccinated - and now they have taken the fight to Twitter. Sure some of these savage tweets are funny, but believe it or not, fighting misinformation on the internet is vitally important, even when it's done in a simple tweet. Scroll down below to read some anti-vaxxers get destroyed by doctors and don't forget to upvote your favs!

Love it! I always found that people that are anti-vaxx and yet still take their kids to regular pediatricians are being hypocrites. You care enough about your child's health to have them see a doctor for every cough, sniffle and hiccup..but you won't do the one thing that can prevent those symptoms. And you will trust your doctors advice on every other thing but vaccinations. Like the rest of their degree is legit but they are somehow misinformed about preventable medicine....

Umm, so you don’t have the kids with the health issues your speaking of stay away from your office for a week so that the kids your vaxing won’t get them sick? Those shots your giving “sluff off”, meaning they shed the virus. Which means it’s contagious after they get the shot. Why do you think the kids are NOT to be around those with autoimmune problems or the elderly? Look it up, its scientifically proven.

The vaccine schedule might need to be reevaluated because of the antivaxxers. Some vaccines may need to be given younger despite the risks because it's extremely likely that children of that age will be exposed to the diseases.

Medical professionals? haha that's hilarious.. I think the more appropriate description of them would be drug dealers in white lab coats lol.. Of course they think drugs are good.. What would be "magical" is if they were educated in what was truly healthy and not just prescribing drugs....

Medical fascism, absolutely unprofessional. To be this aggressive & ridiculing of sovereign persons' fundamental right to decide what to do with own their body is immature and unacceptable. We are not your playthings. We give more time energy and consideration to our individual situation than you do in your 5 minute consult with us. By all means, present your arguments, your product and service, sir. But you do NOT get the totalitarian power to make ultimate decisions for we, the people. Medical science is replete with history of errors (smoking is good for you, lobotomies, countless drug recalls - thalidomide, vioxx, etc etc) AND not every single person reacts identically to the same treatment: its a bell curve with out-liers. The law has always given ultimate choice to the person. Believe it or not, there are millions of highly educated critically analytical people who have well-founded questions about vaccines. This campaign of ridicule is insulting, soviet-style propaganda.

Vlad, while I agree children need to be vaccinated; due to manufacturers guidelines, not all children can be. I'm with you in regards to this docs aggressive & harmful attitude. Nothing is black and white and for our society to swing in the complete opposite direction is just as stupid as the anti-vaxrs hard line attitude. I personally know 2 grown men that suffered life threatening side effects from their flu shot and a woman in our community recently passed away after 40 years in a wheel chair after a childhood vaccination. Our govt has a compensation program for ppl that suffer life threatening side effects from vaccinations. This physicians policy violates his Hippocratic oath. Wouldn't it be better if he continued to provide care to the child while educating the parent without abandoning that child? At least there's hope for kid. Again, this is being set up as an US v THEM situation. Do you really not understand the love and fear a parent feels that leads them to such a decision? Let's get together to beat this. I bet there are many anti-vaxxers that have become vaxxers in light of this outbreak.

Measles became a nationally notifiable disease in the United States in 1912, meaning that health care providers and laboratories were required to report diagnosed cases. During the first decade of reporting, an average of about 6,000 measles-related deaths were reported annually.

In the 1950s, researchers found a way to isolate the measles virus in a patient's blood, and in the 1960s, they were successful in transforming the isolated virus into a vaccine. The vaccine was licensed and became part of the measles vaccination program, introduced in 1963.

Before the introduction of the measles vaccination program, according to the CDC, there was an estimated 3 to 4 million people getting infected with the disease yearly nationwide. Following this program the numbers of cases and deals from measles substantially dropped. In 1994 there were 963 reported cases, which fell to 508 cases in 1996.

Jump forward to 2000, when the disease was declared eliminated in the U.S and there were only 86 reported cases. This meant there had been no continuous transmission of the disease for over 12 months. These numbers only continued to plummet until a resurgence in 2014 where the country experienced 23 separate outbreaks, which occurred primarily among the unvaccinated Amish community.

In 2018 the U.S saw 17 separate outbreaks and the numbers continue to climb. According to the CDC, the disease was largely imported and spread among unvaccinated pockets: "Eighty-two people brought measles to the U.S. from other countries in 2018. This is the greatest number of imported cases since measles was eliminated from the U.S. in 2000."

Unfortunately, you see to this day parents with a cigarette on their hand pusing strollere, the smoke sinking to where the baby is lying. Thus, the unfortunate answer is that enough parents simply do not care.

Above explanation by Eve Switzer pretty much describes what anti-vaxxers do on the internet and in real life, and it also describes why they are sometimes succesful. "Health freedom" sounds so much better than being "pro desease" and "quackery".
