Door Frankema is one of the leaders of the antivax movement in the Netherlands. Originally trained as a physiotherapist, she now works as a full-time antivax advocate. She operates the website Vaccinvrij.nl[1] (Dutch for vaccine free); she also wrote a book with the same name, and has a mildly popular Facebook page.[2] She does lectures and workshops.

She has quite a fanatic group of followers, that try to influence the debate by textbombing forums and Facebook pages with her theories, by repeating the same rhetorical questions over and over again in the hope that reasonable people will stop responding and to lure unsuspecting good willing parents to their ideas. They also keep a vast archive of screenshots of discussions and utterances of people that oppose their views.
