“Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism.” Note the capitalization. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has spoken against anti-vaxxers – people who are opposed to vaccinations because they believe they’re connected to autism and other disorders, despite no scientific evidence to support such a theory.

And even though, according to the World Health Organization, immunizations prevent 2 million to 3 million people from losing their lives each year, anti-vaxxers persist. Arguing with them via loads of common sense and scientific evidence seems to be pointless, so frustrated pro-vaxxers have found another outlet: memes.
