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.
Anti-Vaxxers Should Be Able to Answer These Questions Correctly
Since it is immoral and dangerous to push misinformation that scares parents away from vaccinating and protecting their kids, it would be nice if anti-vaccine folks would answer these questions before they tried to persuade anyone to not get vaccinated:
Name 5 vaccine ingredients that you think are toxic and how exactly they can be toxic at the amounts present in vaccines.
If today’s vaccines already contain far fewer antigens than they did in the old days, what would be the extra benefit of splitting them up even further into separate shots for each vaccine-preventable disease?
