Apparently, protesting kids getting vaccinated and protected against life-threatening diseases is now a thing.
Is it a new thing?
Understanding Immunization Signs That Protestors Carry
As anti-vaccine folks get kicked off of social media, they seem to be moving back into the “real world.”
It is important to understand that the signs are pure propaganda and the anti-immunization misinformation on the signs certainly isn’t new…
They all contain anti-vaccine talking points that are easily refuted.
As most of you understand, vaccine mandates don’t force anyone to get vaccinated. They are typically mandates to get vaccinated if you want your kids to attend daycare or school, etc.
Want your kids to opt out and not get vaccinated? Then in most cases you can keep them home.
You have a choice.
You would think they would at least try and get their propaganda straight.
One of their signs says kids got 9 doses in 1980 and another says 24. Which is it?
It shouldn’t be a surprise that nothing on the anti-immunization signs you might see is true.
- Vaccine mandates are not unconstitutional.
- Vaccine mandates do not go against the Nuremberg Code.
- Vaccines are tested against placebos, including saline placebos.
- Few live virus vaccines shed and spread diseases.
- Many safety studies have shown that vaccines are safe, including long-term safety studies.
- Vaccine ingredients do not cause cancer and do not cause autoimmune diseases. In fact, several vaccines prevent cancer!
- Vaccines are thoroughly tested for many years.
Do these folks have a right to protest?
Just like you have a right to ignore them and get your kids vaccinated and protected.
