This meme about peanut butter isn’t one of them.
Vaccinate your kids or I’ll expose them to a potentially deadly allergen?
Anyway, it’s Jif peanut butter.
There is no such thing as Jiffy peanut butter.
Peanut Butter or the Plague?
And since it isn’t just unvaccinated kids who have peanut allergies, the whole idea of this meme really makes no sense.
Well, maybe the first part does. After all, sometimes we do things to protect others from getting sick.
Getting vaccinated and protected to promote herd immunity is one of them. In addition to protecting ourselves from life-threatening vaccine-preventable diseases, if we don’t get sick, we avoid exposing those who can’t be protected by vaccines, including those who are too young to be vaccinated and those with immune system problems.
Of course, there is another reason the meme doesn’t make sense.
A peanut allergy is a medical condition. Sending your intentionally unvaccinated kid to school is a choice.
Stop sharing this meme.
It’s insulting to parents of kids with severe food allergies and does nothing to advocate for vaccines.
