One of the most dangerous and irresponsible non-scientific mindsets of the last 15 years is the anti-vaccination movement. It can be directly linked to dozens of deaths and thousands of unneeded illnesses. One of the more frequent ant-vaxxer refrains of the past decade has been that giving the standard US vaccination schedule exposes young ones to too many vaccines/antigens/whatevers too early in life.
The research is pretty clear that this schedule is actually quite fine for kids and does not cause an increased risk for autism (which is the most commonly thrown out accusation). Now, the folks over at Academic Earth have put out a really great video called “Too Many Too Soon: The Anti-Vaccine Fallacy” that I would recommend watching and sharing. It shows just how untenable this “argument” is in the real world. I can’t embed it for some reason, so just click the below link and get to watching!
