The CDC Vaccine Price List Conspiracy is Officially Dead

You remember the CDC Vaccine Price List Conspiracy, right?

The birth of a new anti-vaccine conspiracy theory!
The birth of a new anti-vaccine conspiracy theory!

After all, they just made it up last week..

Anyway, it was notable for not only being one of the sillier conspiracy theories anti-vaccine folks have come up with lately, but for spawning a secondary conspiracy theory that was even worse.

Apparently you can make up your own anti-vaccine conspiracy theories.
You can’t make this stuff up – apparently you can…

Yes, they thought that there “was so much hysteria around measles” because the vaccines were expiring.

Of course, MMR vaccine isn’t expiring…

This box of MMR was received in March 2019 and doesn’t expire until October 2020.

And those expiring contracts?

They were renewed! Just like they are every year.

So did everyone stop talking about measles and getting folks vaccinated?

Are all of the measles outbreaks over? Do they still have medical martial law in New York?

Did you buy into this conspiracy theory? Although it was obviously ridiculous, it only took a few minutes of real research to find proof of why it was so ridiculous.

Is the CDC Pushing Vaccines Because a Batch of MMR Is About to Expire?

OMG!

Where do they come up with this stuff?

The expiring MMR conspiracy theory might have been born because this guy on twittter misunderstood the CDC price list conspiracy theory.

Oh that’s right, they just make them up…

Is the CDC Pushing Vaccines Because a Batch of MMR Is About to Expire?

I thought I had this one covered when I wrote about the CDC price list conspiracy theory

Nope.

It is still going…

This box of MMR was received in March 2019 and doesn't expire until October 2020.
This box of MMR was received in March 2019 and doesn’t expire until October 2020.

And although it is silly that we have to refute this new conspiracy theory, especially since they offer no evidence that it was true, it is easy to see that the vaccines we are now getting (3/19 = March 2019) don’t expire for quite a while.

Especially since the average pediatrician rarely keeps more than a month or two of vaccine inventory in the office, I would say that having eighteen months until this batch expires busts another anti-vaccine conspiracy theory.

The only question that remains, is why are folks so ready to believe this kind of misinformation that will put their kids at risk to get measles or another disease?

The CDC Vaccine Price List Conspiracy

Have you ever wondered where anti-vaccine conspiracy theories come from?

I’ve always figured they just make this stuff up…

The birth of a new anti-vaccine conspiracy theory!
The birth of a new anti-vaccine conspiracy theory!

And it is pretty clear that they do!

The CDC Vaccine Price List Conspiracy

Just consider their latest conspiracy, which they think explains “the measles outbreak and the scare tactics.”

Apparently you can make up your own anti-vaccine conspiracy theories.

It’s funny how the theory has already morphed into something even more unintelligible. Notice how it has already changed from their contract expiring to the vaccines themselves expiring.

Either way, how does that explain that a lot more folks are getting measles this year?!?

There were only 37 cases of measles in the United States in 2004…

More importantly, when the CDC vaccine contracts expired in 2004, as they do each and every year, why didn’t we see big jumps in measles cases? Didn’t they need to inflate the case counts to help with the re-negotiations?

What about all of the other years?

Did you buy into this conspiracy theory? Although it was obviously ridiculous, it only took a few minutes of real research to find proof of why it was so ridiculous.
