One of the best weapons against vaccine misinformation is YOU! By speaking to others in your community about the importance of vaccines, their safety and effectiveness, you can advocate simply by having a conversation.
Are you on the PTO, have children on sports teams, or are you a member of a church? These are all excellent groups to speak to because they all care about their children, and their community.
With so much misinformation on social media and the return or diseases like measles and whooping cough, it’s important for people to know that:
It’s natural for parents to be anxious about vaccinating, after all, we all want what’s best for our children, but studies have repeatedly shown that vaccines do not cause autism and are not full of toxic chemicals. And when it comes down to it, most parents do vaccinate their children, but by speaking about the safety of vaccines, we can help drown out the noise of the anti-vaxx movement.
