Concerning the ongoing contentious debate on this Forum concerning vaccinations. Without addressing other issues, let me just make one clarification that is undebatable concerning VAERS, which anti-vaxxers repeatedly present as a “gotcha.”

or Google: Politifact, VAERS, Aug 9th.

VAERS explicitly only “registers” reports about alleged vaccine issues without any attempt to verify accuracy. Because anti-vaxxers know this, VAERS has become a breeding ground for misinformation.

The AMA, WHO, CDC, and others, in reviewing the reports and comparing them to death certificates and autopsies, have yet (as of Aug 21) to find a SINGLE vaccine-caused death or miscarriage. 

This is the insidious nature of social media today.
