    Vaccines are one of our best tools to prevent dangerous diseases, but they come with side effects. So would it be safer not to vaccinate?

  • Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    Dive into sources and further reading here: https://sites.google.com/view/sources-vaccines


    Vaccines and their side effects are a hard topic to cover – we know we keep saying this, but this case especially, there were a lot of things to consider. You can’t blame people for being worried, so we wanted to take their concerns seriously.


    Because it is impossible to cover everything there is to know about vaccines in a ten minute video our sources are extra extensive and explain a lot of aspects in more detail, with an extra focus on further reading.


    So if you want to dive in deeper or have more arguments at hand for your next heated discussion, here you go.

        Another problem that people promoting vaccination have is the media. News media unfortunately has to present things in a balanced manner, which is usually a good thing. However, when a news story is weighted as equal time given to the truth and anti-vaccination, perceived weight is then given to the happy-to-kill-children-through-ignorance group, and those who are unsure at the start of the news piece are left even more unsure at the end. So these parents may decide not to risk the vaccine for their children.

          I’m part of the tiny percent affected by vaccines. I got polio from the vaccine. Put me in a power chair for life. Still not anti-vaxx though.

          • Nadia Grzeszkiewicz-O'Neill

            Don't get vaccines! They have a ton of toxic ingredients in them!
            Full chemical ingredient list: Formaldehyde, Tryptophan, Threonine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lycine, Methionine, Cystine, Phenylalanine, Tyrosine, Valine, Argenine, Histidine, Alanine, Aspartic Acid, Glutamic Acid, Glycine, Proline, and Serine.
            Checkmate, dumb pro-vaxxers.





            Oh, wait, sorry, wrong ingredient list. Those are in apples, not vaccines. My bad.



            Edit: Yes, this is a joke. Don't kill me.

                So having a stem cell with a virus attached to it put into your body so your immunity can learn to recognise that virus is now a sexual act?

                  The Fact that such a Video like this exists is saddening.


                  We should not need to tell the People how vaccines are good for them.



                  How did the Anti-Vaccine movement even pick up speed?


                  Like, this is years of proven medical research dedicated to the betterment of human lives and you throw it out the window out of what? A single piece of paper that has been debunked so many times it honestly should just be burnt and forgotten?


                  Are you really going to risk the well-being of your child out of hearsay and a gut feeling?


                  I guess it is true.


                  A Person is Smart; People, are Dumb.


                  Just... why? Vaccinated Parents who don't Vaccinate their Child. Why do you willingly risk your kid getting measles and other nasty diseases that we, as a species, have striven to eliminate for years because they do nothing but cause human suffering?

                              the fact that people believe vaccines cause autism because a *"scientist"* said it even though people who made and support vaccines are also also *scientists* amaze me.

                                          then cut off the penis skin and convert to cream for face. The penis cream is inserted in face of sandra bulluck.. No kidding look it up on Ellan she admits it. Then left of stem cells are used in vaccines.
                                          so baby parts in vaccines.
                                          WHY? never needed it before?

                                            Using stem cells as a way to get a virus into your body isn't the same as being sexually aroused by a fetus.

                                                    Do anti-vax parents know that Autism is a genetically received disease? Like, its not like a 40 year old man is gonna be ok his entire life, BUT as soon as he gets his Measles vaccine he gets Autism. How retarded do you have to be?

                                                            I would rather my child get measles than receive the MMR vaccine. There have been no measles related deaths in the U.S. in 10+ years while the MMR vaccine has claimed more than 178 lives in the same amount of time. The measles death rate is only 1 in 10000 just as it was before the MMR vaccine was even on the market.
