AUSTIN, TX – Local anti-vaccer Katherine Vondee was recently extolling the virtues of sanitation and clean drinking water to a pro-vaccine shill on Twitter when she was shown a disturbing graph:
As anyone with a brain knows, the measles vaccine had nothing to do with the drop in measles cases, so what is up with this graph?
“It doesn’t really make any sense to me. All the graphs and information I’ve ever seen show that measles was on the decline long before the vaccine came around,” explained Vondee. “I just don’t get it.”
It turns out that anti-vaccers only show graphs of measles DEATHS, not CASES, which were indeed on the decline before the vaccine came around due to better public health measures, better medication, etc. It was only when the vaccine was introduced did we see a sharp decline in measles cases.
“That graph is used by pro-vaccers and pharma shills all the time and its not even true,” said Mike Adams, pro-disease advocate. “Those numbers all come from the government which we know can’t be trusted. Except for Trump. Him we can trust.”
As for Vondee, she has taken this information back to her anti-vaccine Facebook groups in hopes of getting some more anti-science talking points to combat these pesky facts.
