Nurse Shoots Down Anti-Vaxxers By Using Their Own Flawed Logic

Clark Sparky 19 Dec 2018

This nurse thinks it's fine for people to choose not to get vaccinated, but she has a message for people who blame "big pharma."

Her Argument

Giphy

Some people refuse to get their kids vaccinated because of the completely debunked theory that it causes autism. But there's another class of anti-vaxxers who don't get the shots because they think it's all a conspiracy by Big Pharma to get our money and poison us. OK, sure.

A nurse took to her Facebook page to try and open some eyes:

But the caveat to that is this:
Then they should NOT go to the doctor or the hospital when they get sick, looking for treatment.
That’s right. And here’s why: Big pharma makes those antibiotics we are going to pump you full of when you are about to die from sepsis.
The steroids and epi we might give you to save your life from your anaphylaxis? Yep, big pharma is behind that too.
That inhaler you need to treat your kids asthma? Better pass on that as well, because... you guessed it... brought to you by Big P.

It's Also Kind of Offensive

Giphy

Not only is she out to debunk the arguments behind not vaccinating, but she also wants people to know their opinions are offense:

Believe me when I say that not vaccinating yourself or your children because you believe that big pharma only cares about profit or that the scientific medical community has been duped, is 100% insanity.
I personally take offense to anyone who implies that medical professionals, like myself, would ever administer anything to anyone, especially a child, that would intentionally harm them. I take even more offense to anyone that would imply that a college educated professional, like myself, is incapable of “doing the research.”

So anyway, please just get yourself and your kids vaccinated, OK?

'Pick An Choose'

The reactions here are great and seem to be right on her side. There's a lot of "picking and choosing" all around, but it still fits.

'Easily Been Prevented'

Facebook

This is too correct for many situations. Most people don't treat an idea as serious or real until it affects them. It's the classic line from Jaws brought to reality -- people won't care until a disease swims up and bites them or their kids in the ass.

The Flu Is Deadly

Facebook

The real consequence of skipping out on vaccinating your kids, especially with the flu, is death. The flu is deadly as can be if it goes untreated.

No Angry Faces

The group wasn't having any angry faces on the post by our nurse friend. They had a place for those people to go if they disagreed.

Good Enough For You?

Facebook

The bottom line: If it is good enough for you as a kid, why should it be any different for your kids. Vaccines changed the world for the good, why is that being ignored?
