Who is Melissa Floyd?

Melissa Floyd got her start pushing misinformation, conspiracy theories, and propaganda about vaccines sitting next to Bob Sears.

Bob Sears doesn't mention it as he parades in his Star Wars costume, but there were 450 deaths per year in 1988 that are now prevented by the Hib and Prevnar vaccines.

But has since branched out on her own.

Who is Melissa Floyd?

I guess she thought she had learned so much about vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases from Bob Sears that she could start misinforming people on her own.

Actually, the real TRUTH is that only about 1/3 of the kids and 1/5 of the adults were vaccinated. Most were unvaccinated.

She didn’t…

The numbers don’t always add up correctly when anti-vax folks try to do math. The problem, as most folks know, is that the 2% of folks (on a state wide level) with exemptions often cluster together in the same communities and schools, so that immunization rates in those areas fall to 50 to 60%.

Well, she learned enough to impress Bob Sears

Melissa Floyd is hitting the streets without a mask in the middle of a pandemic.

Hey Bob, is it cool to see her scaring people away from getting a COVID-19 vaccine that hasn’t even been approved yet.

Not surprisingly, like many folks who push misinformation and propaganda about vaccines, Melissa Floyd has moved on to COVID-19.

The number of COVID-19 deaths in the US literally doubled in just a few months this summer, but that’s hard to see on this chart because of the scale she used. #propaganda

A vaccine that is being developed for a disease that has killed over 200,000 people in the United States alone and nearly one million people around the world?

Are You Going to Listen to Melissa Floyd?

Are Melissa Floyd’s followers well informed?

Do they know the truth?

It should be clear that they know what she tells them…

There is only one thing to understand from folks plastering these COVID-19 misinformation cards and stickers around...

And that’s a whole lot of misinformation and propaganda about vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases. And COVID-19.

Although she often talks about informed consent, she is actually providing the exact opposite of informed consent, as you can’t make an informed decision when someone is feeding you false information.

She obviously hasn't learned anything about irony...

If you are going to survive the pandemic and avoid a vaccine-preventable disease, like measles, chickenpox, or pertussis, etc., it is going to be by not listening to folks like Melissa Floyd.

  1. Melissa met Bob through the organized opposition to SB277 in 2015.

    June 10, 2015

    The final witness for the opposition was Melissa Floyd, a data analyst and 15-year educator with a specialty in mathematics. Floyd pointed to what she called a misclassifying of most of the 2.5% of children with personal belief exemptions on file as unvaccinated. “In fact, less than 1 percent of children in California are completely unvaccinated.”

    Floyd states, “The authors have said that over 100,000 people die if measles every year, but what they’re not telling you is those are global numbers. The CDC says not one has died in California or in our entire country in 12 years.

    “Important to note, there is no correlation between the PBE percentage rate and the incidence of disease. L.A. County has a PBE rate of 1.62%, that’s very low and they had almost 30 cases of measles. Marin County on the other has over than 6.5% PBE and they had two cases. The same can be said about Pertussis last year. Three of the seven counties that had the most cases were over 95% vaccination coverage.”

    Aliso Viejo mother, Melissa Floyd, says her 2-year-old daughter Serenity suffered inconsolable crying fits and silent seizures after being vaccinated.

    “This is a life-changing event for so many families. This is not a casual decision for us,” Floyd said. “We did vaccinate and here we are in a situation where she suffered those adverse reactions twice, and why is she being punished? Why are we being punished?”

    Floyd says she will apply for a medical exemption on behalf of her daughter, but there are no guarantees she will receive one — especially since Serenity’s pediatrician refuses to see her for a well-visit appointment because of her partially-vaccinated status.

    “We are going to keep fighting this because we’re confident this is unconstitutional,” Floyd said.

  2. I enjoy Melissa, she’s smart and very careful with her research. My son was also vaccine injured (encephalitis following TDaP) so I empathize with her. I think personal choice is very important for medical decisions. I fully support everyone’s right to choose the medical treatments that are best for them.
