Vaccination Awareness Week Round-Up

There’s still officially one more day of Anti-Vaccine Awareness Week (two really, as it’s an American idea) but here’s a round up of the posts anyway. While I know there are lots of great in-depth posts around the blogosphere on this the following list has been restricted to NZ posts to keep the local flavour. The posts are in roughly chronological order.

The University of Auckland Library at Tamaki Library blog Misinformation spread about HPV vaccine

Me Anti-Vaccination in NZ

Scott at Imperatorfish They Can’t Vaccinate Against Tin-Foil Hat Syndrome

Michelle at Skeptics In The Pub Vaccines: The actual facts (well, the links to some anyway…)

Alison Campbell at Bioblog on polio

Michelle at Skeptics In The Pub More facts about vaccines….

Me A Side Benefit of the ‘Flu Vaccine – Reduction in Heart Attacks

Michael Edmondsat Sciblogs Guest Work “I’m not a Scientist but …”; Dissection of an antivaxxer’s argument

Alison Campbell at Bioblog chelation quackery around vaccination

The next couple are not specifically about vaccination but I think are worth a mention:

If anyone knows of a post I’ve missed then please feel free to add it in the comments.

For those of you interested in the international posts, blogger Liz Ditz has done an awesome job collating all of the posts here:

  1. While getting even further away from vaccines, I’ll be putting up tonight an article that serves as a worked example of the thinking in “If presenting a claim on a popular issue”. (The example relates the vitamin C as treatment for severe pneumonia as per the now not-so-recent documentary on TVNZ, but I hope it makes the earlier, more abstract, post clearer.)

  2. Look forward to it. Might be useful when discussing with those who seem to be uncritically accepting these ideas.
