I’m not sure if some anti-vax online communities have Google alerts turned on or what, but sometimes a few anti-vaxxers will descend on a story about vaccines and take over the comments section with nonsense and factz™. Sometimes they just respectfully disagree – but usually they spew a bunch of vitriol and nonsense. Here are a few of the latter examples, illustrated with the faces you’ll be making after you read them.

 

1. Vaccines cause disease, will quote creator of vaccine now.

I love, love, love anti-vaxxers who quote Jonas Salk. They always neglect to mention that he created the first successful inactive Polio vaccine. So, the originator of the killed-virus vaccine that we use today, is the default spokesperson for the anti-vax movement. That makes sense.

2. Science is flawed. Blah, blah, blah.
