I have been fighting against the anti vaccine anti social brigade in Social Media for a long time
For many years, I was the lone voice in Indian Cyber Space against terrorists with perverted mind like Jaganatha Chaterjee who went on spreading lies against vaccines.
The Tamil Cyber Space was equally bad with fake information regarding Blood Donations, Transplants, Pregnancy and I was fighting those too alone as recent as (or as far as – depending on how new you are to Social Media) 2013.
I would have given up in 2013, but for the Support I got from Doctors (Karthikeyan TheRebel Sir, Sidharth Parivallal Sen Balan as well as Non Medicos like Ravishankar Ayyakannu, Ravi Senthazal, Selvakumar Ramachandran, தோழர் அரக்கன், Ponnusamy Purushothaman . Ananthakrishnan Pakshirajan, Umamaheshvaran Panneerselvam, M.m. Abdulla Annan etc)
When the Rumours are floated in FB, G+ etc, we can atleast write a comment clariying it
When it comes to Whatsapp, there is no place to counter it and tell the truth and it spreads very rapidly
As told by Osai Chella, //..A 2011 report carried out by Haifa University concluded the opposition to vaccinations is “a trend rapidly gaining traction in the past years.” //
Why this is happening is easy to understand
There are two kinds of people in the world
- One : Wise Men Men and Women
- Two : Fools
Even when they are under the Shade, Wise Men Men and Women knew the importance of shade and the problem with being directly under Sun . .So they will always prefer to be under the shade
When a Fool is in shade for too long, he/she won’t know what it is to be directly under sun and hence won’t know the importance of shade and neglect it
Wise Men and Women know the importance of Vaccines even without seeing a child die due to diphtheria
Fools, who don’t have intelligence may not know the importance of vaccines when the disease is not widespread
Once these people see their kids becoming lame, blind, deaf or dead, they will rush to hospitals demanding vaccines
It is a matter of time
Till then Lots of Kids would be affected . . And Needless to say, the blood of those kids will be on the hands of every one in media and social media who has shared anti vaccine posts.
As Some one who has worked for three years in Primary Health Centres, As Some one who has got up at 4 AM and went alone in a TVS 50 carrying vaccines in Freezer Box to the remotest of hamlets for Pulse Polio, As a Neurosurgeon who has seen fair bit of Residual Polio and SSPE, reading the anti vaxxer’s stupidity spoils my mood
Those who want to know the need for vaccines, can read my old posts
In case of doubts, Please ask in the comments
The blood of those who die will be on the hands of everyone in media and social media who had created anti vaccine mindset the under garb of “reporting”, “inviting discussion” and “awareness”
Places in Hell are Reserved for these perverts.
Those who can’t realize the need of vaccines without experiencing the need yourself (sic), best of Luck.
Let your Realisation Come Soon (sic)
