Vaccine injury anecdotes are no joke

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

The pro-vaccine contingent (also called "vaccine defenders") seems to be awfully fond of making fun of people who have suffered vaccine injuries, and they especially seem to enjoy making fun of anyone who even refers to serious adverse reactions to vaccines.

 

Here is an excellent article by MDC member, Sandy Gottstein:

Well, yes They have sympathy for the 0.1% of serious reactions that have happened, but since 99.9% of "reactions" are not REALLY reactions, but just the overactive imagination of hysterical and misinformed parents, I can see why they get frustrated!!! eyesroll.gif

" 99.9% of "reactions" are not REALLY reactions, but just the overactive imagination of hysterical and misinformed parents,"


Really? I'm not saying things aren't blamed on vax that aren't related... But your statement underscores the dismissal of so many for reactions that very likely ARE related. I'm not sure what else to say...

Um - for those that are not regulars here - sassy is correct -  I was being sarcastic hence the eyerolling emoticon. The topic makes me crazy and I often use sarcasm and humor but I always indicate this with a nice little emoticon. Thought that was clear, but my apologies if it wasn't. 

 

FTR  - the dismissal of vaccine reactions is one of my greatest pet peeves.
