How many of you watched this weeks Chicago Med about an unvaccianted child? I just got done watching it & there are quite a few mistakes in it.
Let the refutations begin -
1. A sick child holding a 2 month old? Ok, who in their right mind lets a sick child hold a baby? Or let a sick adult hold a baby? The baby's mom shouldn't have let it happen. The sick child's mom shouldn't have let it happen. There have been a couple of occasions where I was sick & I had the opportunity to get a baby fix. I turned it down because I didn't want to get the baby sick. If I'm not feeling well, I don't make the 4 hour drive to my sons house to spend time with my grandson.
2. The unvaccinated child & his dad are asked to leave the ER waiting room. The unvaccinated child is playing with other kids at a kids table. His dad & the unvaccinated child are ordered to leave the ER area. The unvaccianted child is exhibiting no signs of illness & has to leave the ER. Unvaccinated children pose no risk to other kids.
This is a Harvard Immunologist. She shows in this video how unvaccinated kids pose no risk to anybody.
3. The doctor who started the anti vaccination movement has been thoroughly debunked. This is in reference to Dr. Wakefield. Did Dr. Wakefield start the anti vax movement? Absolutely not. The anti vax movement started way back in the late 1800s.
This is from an anti vax publication in 1895.
And this is from 1902.
You also need to remember that Dr. Wakefield & his 12 co authors never said vaccines cause autism. What the conclusion of the study was We did not prove an association between measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine and the syndrome described. Virological studies are underway that may help to resolve this issue.
And there are at least 28 studies that have replicated what Dr. Wakefield & his co authors found in that famous paper.
So, whenever you see antivaxers degraded on TV. Do a little bit of research, you can usually debunk what they're saying with a little bit of homework.
Until next time,
