You could argue ignorance is not a good defence on this board and I would agree (at least among regular posters/lurkers).
In which case, it likely is a case of not looking at something too closely or avoiding the issue entirely because it does not suit their purposes.
The "dose makes the poison" is central to vaccine defence. I don't think it is anything they plan to give up saying, even if it is untrue some of the time, and possibly in the case of vaccines.
I do not like being misrepresented as being anti-sceince or a science denier for questioning vaccines, I doubt they like being called a science denier.
I doubt they deny all science - but I do think they pick and choose what to consider based on their belief system.
I also think there are pro-vaxxers who are decidedly vaccine advocates. Ergo, it makes no sense to focus on uncomfortable truths if it could promote a vaccine critical POV.
Note no one disagrees with you, they just do not talk about it, while going on to repeat the same lines (dose/poison) over and over again.
