Is your phd in aromatherapy?
Oh really? I didn’t know that! Crap! Here I was thinking we were going to start giving dilaudid out to everyone! Haa! I’m so stupid! Your the best! Thanks for telling me this! Phew!
Oh dear. What exactly do you do in healthcare?
Yep smallpox went away on its own now didnt it? You have higher odds at winning a high sum lottery prize than getting a disease from a vaccine a few people were unlucky a few billion never got sick you choose. Then there is the autism angle its not that there is more autism its that the spectrum has expanded and its being called what it is vs a false diagnosis of something else and autism symptoms are laid plain at or around the same time as vaccinations are recommended. Trust science or trust celebrities the choice is yours
Bahahahahahaha. Watch all the way to the end. Sums it up perfectly!
Bad injection technique in that photo!
Walt dies?! It wasn’t because he was vaccinated, was it?
You do realize that this is a satirical site. It’s meant to be humorous

How can you dispute the empirical evidence of the eradication of small pox worldwide and nearly the same with polio? It’s because of immunizations. Why is there suddenly rises in measles and e pertussis? Because people are not vaccinating their children. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out. But of course all the doctors and nurses with years of training must be brainwashed and wrong.
I’ve come across articles where psychologists have said that it actually quite difficult to change an anti-vaxxer’s mind. Personally I’ve kind of given up on the whole debate… Although everything I’ve learnt in all that time spent in immunology and medicine makes me go huh? All the time whenever I come across these opinions. I’d rather focus on kids in developing nations who still live under the scourge of these diseases and how to improve their lives. As a last comment though, I would have thought the Hib example would be an excellent point about how epiglottitis in young kids went from being a pretty common weekly paediatrician’s nightmare in the 90s to a once or twice yearly occurrence, and the only difference being the introduction of a fantastic vaccine. I guess if these diseases are going to come back then we younger doctors better start getting better at treating them.

and organic, gluten-free, peanut-free, etc. Works for me!
How? I’ve read hundreds of studies, most done by the drug companies themselves. The statistics are manipulated, the studies are incomplete, the sample sizes are biased. I have also read studies that show absolutely that the ingredients in vaccines are toxic chemicals that have the potential to cause very severe side effects up to and including death. But are those not science???? Is science only those studies that show what you want them to show? Or maybe you lie in favor of unaccountable pharmaceutical companies making billions “science”? How many drugs were once deemed “safe” with “mounds” of evidence? Who decides what evidenced based practices are and are not? Do you know? Let me just ask you a question, how much aluminum is allowed per kg injected into ones body in TPN and why? Why can’t we just inject aluminum? Why was lipstick with aluminum recalled? Well look it up. And then tell me how much aluminum is in a vaccine? How about 3 or 4 vaccines injected at once? Why does “science” tell us one thing in one instance and then not another? No, real science laws do not change! Brainwashing is a science too!
So sick and tired of these posts. Get a life people. Let everyone raise their children how even the heck they want to. Find something better to do with your life, rather than criticize people who vaccinate and people that don’t. I have no idea how this appeared on my feed, but I am just sick of it. We are all doing the best we can for our kids. So, just STOP IT!!!
You want studies done by the vaccine companies??? I thought they were just in it for the money. If anyone is in on the conspiracy it’s them. Right? The one thing I just can’t wrap my head around is how all these internet doctors, who must have special access to peer reviewed studies that support their anti- VAX agenda, cannot troll their way to a simple @&#%$&# statistics 101 page and learn the difference between correlation and causation. I think I’d crap myself if I EVER had one that knew what selection and observation bias even mean. Amazing, all that googling and not one useful page. And, Christy, I don’t know what you are getting a PHD in but it must be dancing or something because if it’s in a science, you have failed. You are breaking records on most logical flaws/fallacy in least characters typed. I’ll just touch on one: Certain diseases are more prevalent because we either understand them more or have better diagnostic tools. OK, I’m done. It’s not fun anymore.
Christy how can you work in healthcare, yet not believe the mounds of scientific evidence in vaccinations?
Ben you can treat me anytime. Your right
And they have been. NEJM had a study in about 2003. It was on the hoax of vax caused autism. 7 million kids total. Slightly more unvaccinated kids had autism, though not enough for statistical s
1. There is no correlation between the language used or sentiments expressed on this site and the manner in which healthcare professionals conduct themselves at work. This is a fun outlet for us to vent and commiserate with one another, which likely actually helps us maintain our compassion while on the job.
2. I wouldn’t expect to make a pro-Obama comment on a Tea Party website and not expect to get bombarded with contrary responses. Know your audience.
3. Resorting to pettiness regarding sentence formation or accusing people of bullying because they don’t agree with you doesn’t make your point any more valid.
There is a picture of you and two pretty little girls right beside your comment that you willingly posted on this thread to be judged so no… I was not trolling your FB page. This is obviously a page that is meant for people with healthcare knowledge to laugh at people like you… so to imply that you were not looking for this argument is ridiculous! Also, I would never wish ill on any person much less a child and was simply stating that heaven forbid your children get sick but if they do there will be a plethora of caring individuals that have dedicated their lives to taking care of others.
Well, obviously. If you don’t like vaccines, you wouldn’t want any more of my man-killing, toxic evidence based medicine.
I would not be “lucky” to be treated by a bully healthcare worker, if my child had either an illness or a severe vaccine injury. Amy, you think I do not understand the seriousness of the issue, I do. Do you know why you cannot sue a vaccine manufacture if you are injured? Because the federal government has ruled that vaccines are inherent unsafe! All I am saying is I want them to be safe. I want better studies done that are honest and not done by the vaccine companies themselves! Do you get this? You blindly take a side and regurgitate rhetoric that you don’t fully understand. Do you understand that there is vaccine injury compensation program that has paid out millions for vaccine injuries? Have you looked at the instance of disease (even before vaccines) versus vaccine reactions and done the math? I do not appreciate you trolling my Facebook and making vague threats and evil wishes upon me and my family. I am not an antivaxer, I want truth. Thank you.
Well, Ben, you seem to be a very nice kind upstanding person in healthcare. Thank you for your articulate thoughts. That was sarcasm, by the way. I am in healthcare as well. If I ever am a patient, I hope to never be treated by you. I hope you have a better day, you sound miserable in the profession you have chosen. Better luck to you.
Christy… you have beautiful babies. Lucky for you, all of these bully healthcare workers will be there to take care of your children if they contract a preventable disease because of your ignorance and arrogance. Your welcome.
Caitlin – I see your point about cigarettes- and for how many years did they say they were safe?
Wow. For those of you in healthcare, you are extremely rude bullies. Actually I’m working on my PHD. I do a lot of research. Sorry for a comment that may have opened your mind. Have a nice day. Linda, please make complete sentences.
Best sketch EVER
There are groups who are already unvaxed that can be studied.
This argument is truly about population control and natural selection.
My brother and I were truly lucky survivors of polio. Nothing to screw with, along with the other deadly diseases that the “moderns” think will just “go away” without vaccines. Go ahead and go back to the 18th Century, but don’t take others with you.
Eileen, don’t *** someone’s spelling if you don’t proof read your comments. There’s no bigger way to look like an ass and have everyone laughing at you.
I can see what she’s getting at, some of them, like influenza, are rushed and understudied. Although the basics have been used for a long time and show a very positive outcome. Where as now we pump newborns with Hep B that people my age (30) and older don’t have unless they work(ed) healthcare, is it going to hold up it’s titter getting it so early when many adults have to redo them?
You bet not one of these doctors has read a study? I would like to take you up on the bet. Let’s set the wagers. How about the future of your ability to seek healthcare, or your ability to come online and post asinine comments?
They distract us with Polio and Measles… Why the real menace takes hold of our children.
Vaccines are organic, so that solve everything.
1) a study like that would not be ethical. There’s also no double blind study on the effects of cigarettes, yet we know they’re unsafe.
2) If you don’t trust the ample research that already exists that says vaccines are overwhelmingly safe and effective, what would one more study accomplish? You loons have changed the narrative so much to fit your crazy beliefs even though, time and time again, research has proven you wrong.
I have seen a kid with bacterial meningitis – it is s horrible, horrible thing.
Independent double blind study that vaccines are safe?! How about that they have been around since 1963 and the majority of America has received them without issue! Including most of you idiotic anti-vaxxers who live on to be a pain in my ass. There’s your 51 year independent huge study. Please enjoy they data.
Or your immunization free infant starts having high fevers, starts seizing due to bacterial meningitis?
So do you go to the pediatrician for anything else ? Just curious if you carry it through – if you don’t believe them about immunes – why believe then when they want to give your daughter antibiotics when there is puss in her urine, she is vomiting , she had back pain and 105 fever?
Folks she’s too busy working on 6 pack abs for science lessons.
Gomerblog – instead of showing unhappy children getting shots, show a picture of a child in an iron lung, or in a wheel chair, after getting polio. We need to see the consequences of getting vaccine preventable diseases.
You know, when I took microbiology, polio was its own little virus. It still has a specific shape and size, etc., yet antivaccine nuts think we just “renamed it”. Christy, why don’t you take a microbiology class so you can learn some science, if that is even possible for you.
Lol I love parents protesting yet they got same vaccines and are fine!
*there (are none)
And fyi, the SV40 virus (your cancer causing “gene”) has not been in polio vaccines since 1963 and has never been linked to cancer in humans.
Christy See I don’t know why I’m wasting my time explaining this but here it goes. You can’t do random double blind studies if the group randomized to placebo is potentially put in harms way. We can’t give half the study participants a vaccine while allowing the other half to go unvaccinated. Not that you antivax folks care but science is not on your side. Facts are not on your side and logic, clearly, is not on your side.
Hey Christy, isn’t there an anti vaxxer board you can go troll. This is a site for those of us who work in healthcare can go to get away from the “yous” in the world. In the office we kindly listen to your mindless drivel while you occupy 50 minutes for your 15 min acute visit but here we don’t have to. Yes, your position is so laughable, it gets an article on “the onion” for medicine. Just follow Jimmy’s advice and treat yourself, since you have it all figured out. Let me know how that works out for you in your 60-70’s. Sorry all for the rant but I feel this is my/our space and I do have to listen to this #&$% at work, I don’t want to here :)
What did they rename polio?
Seriously. Next time you get a laceration, grab that sewing kit and buck up.
And no independent double blind trials for parachutes either!
It’s all a global conspiracy!
Keep up the great work!
Cuz Jimmy is an expert! I bet not one of them has read a vaccine insert or study. Do they mention that polio was renamed? Or that the vaccine actually gave thousands polio, or that it carried a cancer gene doubling our cancer rates today? Oh yea- but I’m so stupid. . . . Just give me an independent double blind study that vaccines are safe . . . Rant about the fact that their are none. . . Be mad at “science” not me for demanding transparency.
Freaking hilarious. Love these docs.
Fear gluten more than small pox…
