Gresham Lecture on AntiVax in History

A History of the AntiVax movment

 Gresham Lecture by Professor Gareth Williams on AntiVax in History
it's about 60 minutes long, but worth watching.

 This is actually a cartoon ridiculing the antivax people, as they believe they are taking on the Cows attributes

Take note at about 40 minutes where you will see chiropractors saying vertebral subluxations to be the cause of all disease, so therefor Vaccination and Germ Theory are invalid..errr yeah...right, but some still believe it.
Professor Williams also mentions a more recent anti-vaxer called Viera Scheibner,  I have saved you the google search as he recommends, just watch this from Australian 60 Minutes:-  

  Today one of the big sources of Vaccination misinformation is the Australian Vaccination Network, headed up by Meryl Dorey you can read here how Stop the AVN is combating this menace.

 “I hope that some day the practice of producing cowpox in human beings will spread over the world - when that day comes, there will be no more smallpox” Edward Jenner
