So I reviewed comments.
To sum up Vaccine Awareness Week, all I will do (for which I apologize) is the following:
- Link to this aggregate of pro-vaccine blogs and resources (many of them are reviews, analyses, and deconstructions of specific content produced for this week by anti-vaccine activists such as Barbara Loe Fisher or of cranks in general such as Joe Mercola, Mike Adams, or Gary Null - so if you want to see what anti-vaccine activists and profiteers have to say for themselves, you can).
- As of approximately 9:45 PM on Saturday night, when I did a Google search for 'vaccine awareness week', the first page was dominated either by official resources on vaccines, links regarding official immunization awareness weeks/months (which are at other times of the year) or pro-vaccine posts (often specifically intended to counter the Mercola.com/NVIC Vaccine Awareness Week). Not until page 3 does a hit come up sympathetic to the aims of the anti-vaccine movement.
- Remind you, the reader, if you haven't already, to check out the rest of my posts for the week.
What's In the Future for this Blog?
While I mentioned, in my inaugural post, that the urge to do something to help attenuate the influence of ant-vaccine activism was the motivation to start this blog, I hardly intend on focussing on health issues.
This coming week, in fact, I intend to examine musical and other artistic/cultural pieces, creations, or trends related to or inspired by Remembrance Day (Veteran's Day for the US). And I won't be posting every day, either.
