Anti Vaxxers target and harrass pro-Vax people[edit]

Now anti-Vaxxers have targeted a doctor who made a pro-Vax Speech on Tik Tok.

Here is the California incident involving anti-vaxxers. — Unsigned, by: 2601:640:c600:3c20:3d38:5f01:5ee9:fd5c / talk / contribs

Qui prodest?[edit]

Asking to add the separate section describing underlying motives of anti-vaxxers, when they are more or less known. Some people are honestly stupid or several screws loose, but "researchers" like Wakefield are funded by someone, and these someones aren't doing it for shits and giggles (I think). There are some points already present, scattered across the page, like fundies against Gardasil, but they are not focused on motives. Arisano (talk)

Agree with that there should be section about biases that cause people to be antivaxxers. There is a good youtube video:The science of Anti-Vaccination by SciShow. -- (talk) 23:21, 18 October 2021 (UTC)

Biases and motives are different - bias suggests genuine belief, but many antivaxers are simply lying to advance their own agenda. Like Wakefield, who initially wanted to push his own, "safer" line of vaccines, until the scheme blew into his face. --Arisano (talk) 17:23, 28 March 2022 (UTC)

Vitamin K Injections[edit]

Anti-vaxxers have been trying to gin up fear about the vitamin K shot given to babies to prevent catastrophic bleeding. There's already a small discussion of this on the "Vitamin and mineral supplements" page. Should it have a section here, too? — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Anti-vax glossary?[edit]

With the increase in euphemistic language in order to circumvent filters and moderation on social media, might it be useful to have an anti-vax glossary section/page? Twentydragon (talk) 08:40, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

Right now, probably just add the code words to the article, but if it gets expansive enough, we can have.a glossary. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 01:03, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

Zombie vaxxers[edit]

Some mention of the 'I am Legend' anti-vaxxer meme should be made - [1] is one of many reports. Anna Livia (talk) 22:57, 10 August 2021 (UTC)

White Rose movement[edit]

Can mention be made of this UK anti-vax group (ie not the anti-Nazi group, nor 'any group connected connected with Edward IV and Richard III'), having seen some of the stickers. This provides a good summary. Anna Livia (talk) 20:20, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
