There's a Facebook page called The Vaccination Station and it's doing god's work. Instead of belittling anti-vaxxers, they are trying to show that immunization works.

"This is a pro-vaxx page sharing information about all aspects of vaccination. Questions are welcome, but unsubstantiated claims will be treated with the scepticism they deserve. If you want to disagree, bring science and evidence," The Vaccination Station introduced itself.

After gathering information from reputable professionals qualified in relevant fields, the page presents it with comprehensible posters. Not everyone has the patience or the time to read scientific papers, so this format is perfect not only for convincing anti-vaxxers to change their minds, but to prepare those who might meet them as well.

Sadly these posters won’t convince those anti-vaxx morons, they only see what they want to see and I doubt they can even read properly anyway.

“I am deeply concerned by the resurgence of the modern anti-vaxx movement and its negative impact on public health; an impact which can be traced directly (though not exclusively) to Andrew Wakefield’s fraudulent MMR study of 1998,” the man behind The Vaccination Station, Dave, told Bored Panda. “I want to demystify vaccination by explaining it in terms that anyone can understand.”

This is the right poster, putting things into relation. Do the same with formaldehyde and you realize that babies probably smelmore vapours from cleaning agents (which adults do not even sense).

Throughout his life, Dave has met only met a few anti-vaxxers in the real world. “Most of them were personal friends who have since cut me off. Discussions about vaccines did not go well; they simply refused to listen.” However, many have reached out to him via social media. “I am regularly accused of being a paid shill for the pharmaceutical industry,” he said. “One person even said I must be a bot! The truth is that I’m just a regular dad with a Facebook page that I manage by myself, with no funding from anyone.”

According to anti-vaxxers all these children have been brain-washes | paid by the goverment | misinformed by the pharma industry | forces by their reptilian overlords. Pick any one you like.

While working on the project, Dave has learned quite a few things. “Firstly, anti-vaxx propaganda must be engaged & refuted at its primary source: social media. The influence of the ‘post-truth’ era has sadly eroded public confidence in professional expertise. Furthermore, there is an urgent need to teach & promote critical thinking skills such as logic & deductive reasoning.”

“Scientific consensus is based on strength of evidence, not volume of voices,” he added. “No amount of sincere belief will change facts that are inconvenient to your worldview.”

In addition, in Australia, when you are vaccinated the doctor or pharmacist (you can often get fast vaccinations in pharmacies) will have you wait for a requisite period just in case there is a reaction despite how unusual it is. You can have the choice between the (unlikely chance of) having a reaction right NEXT to trained medical professionals - or catching a serious illness and realising you're in trouble at home or work.

So anti-vaxxers should talk to their doctors and not listen to fools like kat von D.

Vague so can get away with not lying but misleading. Look at the safy studies. Only one that had a inert saline Placebo study was HPV and they hid the results in the Aluminum adjuvant "placebo" group.

This meme is a straghit out lie: https://academic.oup.com/jid/article/216/8/977/4084678 Immunity works differently for different people but generally my parents generation, who everyone got the measles even if it was asymptomatic as the CDC does (or at least did last time I looked) not recommend the MMR if you where born before 1957, has life long immunity but there is a reason the CDC is talking about getting a 3rd MMR at college and constantly over a lifetime every x amount of years.

Autism diagnosed at the same rate. See anti-vaxxers - it is just given at the same time and you have all been blaming a coincidence.

Yeah, do the anti-vaxxers wonder why they aren't sick all the time? "Oh, I use essential oils every morning and eat healthy." No, while you were a child, your parents got you vaccinated from all of these preventable diseases, but you are too selfish to realize you are killing your child. Anti-vaxxers will only realize their mistakes when someone close to them dies from the sickness, because they didn't vaccinate them.

This makes sense, because if a child has a subclinical infection it might increase their chance of SIDD without being detectable.

As a woman with HPV 16, I have already had one count of abnormal cells, face annual Pap smears, and if I have a second abnormal smear, it has been suggested as I have been through menopause, I should have a hysterectomy. If only we had gardasil vaccine when I was young. This is given free in Australian schools, and as a teacher, who use to take my class down for their injections. I was stunned at the number who opted out. Point of interest, boys are also susceptible to these viruses and should also be vaccinated.

It also takes a lot of mercury to adversely effect the brain. The Mad Hatter from Alice and Wonderland was portrayed as crazy because he was representing old time Haberdashers who used to treat the brims of hats with mercury to kill bacteria while protecting the fabric. Eventually, after years and years of use...they would go crazy from the build up of mercury. The amount in a few vaccines, even if it did accumulated in the blood, would not be enough to cause brain damage.

Actually you can't give the pneumococcal 13 & meningicoccal vaccines together (need a minimum of 4 weeks between doses) so this post isn't factually correct

And here is the key. I can talk to antivaxxers for hours about research, but the thing that gets through is always my anecdotical evidence when telling them how a difteria or pertussis child look, sound and suffer.

And it is the healthy children who can protect the ones who, for whatever reason, do not have that strong immune system.

Question: Is "Herd Immunity Threshhold" the number of vaccinated people, or tje number requiered to contain the disease? Because, if its the first option, there seems to be a higher R0, the higher the Treshhold is. Can someone explain, please?

Actually, I'm sick of Vaxxers who buy Big Pharma and their co-horts in the government that ignore independent testing showing the harm and poison being injected into young children and adults.
