No jokes today. Just a bunch of jokers.

Ok, I know I've been blogging a lot about vaccination in a Very Serious Way lately, but I honestly haven't had a lot of time to do anything on this here page except pass on stuff from others. And now I'm about to do it again.

This pdf file is an open letter to parents about the big fat fibs told by the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN), which, despite its important-sounding name, doesn't do anything helpful. Instead they try to convince people that childhood vaccines are more risky than beneficial. And that's not true. The Australian Skeptics have published this letter in order to have it freely distributed about the country, no doubt in an effort to destroy what little persuasive power and credibility the AVN has left.

Please print it, post it, paste it and do whatever you like with it. Unless you disagree with it, in which case, please do some more research.

Thanks, Australian Skeptics.

  1. phew, for a moment there I thought you were a no-vax kinda gal.

    I also find some of the no-vax arguments laughable (& I have heard many of them from friends with unvaccinated kids who are horrified by my decision)
