Five lists to fit into five days! Five lists associated with vaccines.

The Top Ten

1 Vaccines contain toxic metals.

Wish I could vote for all of these. In 8th grade I did a long paper on vaccines and it scared me so much. I never want to take them again. So sorry for everyone who was affected by these awful things. There are absolutely terrible.

People with weak immune systems can't get rid of all of the toxic metals, so the metals affect the blood and the brain, and problems occur. - Wolftail

Mercury is also something know to be in them. I don't know about you but I fm the want mercury in me.

2 Vaccines can kill people.

A baby in the USA (I'm not naming names) had some vaccines. She developed breathing problems. Later on she had more vaccines, which made her breathing worse. One night her parents went out. They were called by the baby's babysitter that the baby wasn't breathing. The baby was rushed to hospital and later died. I guess I've proved my point. - Wolftail

But NOT getting vaccines kills exponentially more people.

Also, vaccines don't kill people. - keycha1n

3 Vaccines contain a small bit of the disease it is supposed to prevent.

That's the idea. It gives someone a weaker version of the disease so the body creates antibodies-so if they ever got the disease for real, they can fight it off. - keycha1n

4 The HPV vaccine (also known as Gardasil) killed 85 people in one year.

"Correlation does not equal causation."
No.
But it's a good place to start.

5 The first vaccine was invented in 1796 by Edward Jenner.

I think it was for smallpox. - Wolftail

Yes, he infected people unknowingly with a cow's udder disease, noticing that people who got it (from milking cows) didn't get smallpox. The people didn't get smallpox, and he continued on researching that. He was actually quite lucky to have not killed anyone in the process... - keycha1n

6 Some vaccines are not safety tested.

The pharmaceutical companies just want to make money quickly. - Wolftail

7 Vaccinating a large group of people is called 'herd immunity'. V 1 Comment
8 Vaccines prevent more than 2.5 million deaths each year.

Despite the problems vaccines may cause, the sheer numbers of lives saved are staggeringly in their favour. - PetSounds

Humanity survived before the advent of rabies vaccine.
It most certainly and obviously would not "wipe us out."
Equally obviously, this IS a life-saving vaccine.

A) Is that 2.5 million lives allegedly saved globally?
B) 2.5 million lives allegedly saved out of how many people vaccinated?
C) What is the source of this information?

9 Not all vaccines are given as shots.

I think some vaccines are taken orally. - Wolftail
