Vocal vaccine deniers don’t like to get called out for pushing anti-vaccine misinformation.
They like to think they are giving folks ‘more information.’
In reality, it’s just more misinformation about vaccines…
It’s Just More Anti-Vaccine Misinformation
It’s not even just Bob doing it anymore.
That’s a lot of misinformation stuffed into one comment…
- mischaracterizing measles as just a “week
- saying that the MMR vaccine doesn’t work and doesn’t provide immunity
- something about shedding
- making up a statistic about vaccine variant measles
- closing with vaccine injury
Got something else?
Yup. Measles. A lot of measles.
A week-long rash that is accompanied by a high fever, cough, and irritability. A week-long rash that can sometimes lead to encephalitis and even death.
A week-long rash that is easily prevented with two doses of the MMR vaccine, which doesn’t shed, rarely causes vaccine-associated measles (38%???), and rarely causes serious side effects.
A life-threatening disease that your kids might unnecessarily be at risk to get because you are listening to these folks who don’t think that vaccines are ever necessary or ever work.
Is that what you believe?
Del Spreads Misinformation
And there are still others spreading misinformation.
“I know that a lot of people read, ‘Oh, Del spreads misinformation,’” he said. “That’s an opinion. I like to call it missed information. This is the information that the mainstream media establishment doesn’t want you to hear.”I attended an Orthodox anti-vaccine rally. Here’s what I saw.
So what’s some of the “missed information” that Del Bigtree is spreading?
“Over the course of about 12 minutes, Bigtree linked vaccines to the Holocaust and then to child sacrifice. He compared them to Nazi experimentation on unwilling Jewish medical subjects, then to the intentional ritual murder of children, in an effort to debunk the scientific consensus that a critical mass of vaccinated people, or herd immunity, means that even those who cannot be vaccinated for genuine medical reasons will have some protection from getting sick.”I attended an Orthodox anti-vaccine rally. Here’s what I saw.
While it isn’t surprising that someone like Del Bigtree would say these things, that he would do it at an anti-vaccine rally in the middle of the biggest measles outbreak in 27 years in New York is unbelievable.
More Misinformation from Bob Sears
Want to hear the latest misinformation from Bob Sears?
The guy who brought us his own made up vaccine schedule is claiming that there are “physical pieces of fetal tissue” in vaccines.
Yes, some vaccines are made with fetal embryo fibroblast cells from cell lines that were derived (they can replicate infinitely) from two electively terminated pregnancies in the 1960s.
That certainly does not mean that any vaccines contain aborted fetal tissue though.
The cells used today have been copied, over and over again. They are descendant cells, which is why a common way to explain all of this is to say that vaccines are said to have a “distant association with abortion.”
Missed Information About Vaccines
Not only do vaccines not contain aborted fetal tissue, the fetal embryo fibroblast cells that are used to grow the viruses in these vaccines are mostly removed from the final vaccine our kids get!
“Some vaccines may contain residual quantities of components used during the manufacturing process, including inactivating agents, antibiotics, and cellular residuals. These agents are removed at the end of the manufacturing process, but trace amounts may be present in some vaccines.”NIH on Other Vaccine Ingredients
If any of the fetal embryo fibroblast cells are present, it is only in trace amounts and as cellular residuals, not even as complete cells.
Anti-vaccine folks don’t usually tell you that…
What ever they now want to call the anti-vaccine misinformation they are pushing to folks, just understand that it is all the same propaganda that is designed to scare you away from vaccinating and protecting your kids.

1 thought on “It’s Just More Anti-Vaccine Misinformation”
I understand that the two original 1960sl fetuses were aborted because they were lethally infected with rubella.
