16 Celebs Who Have Been Very Vocal About The Importance Of Vaccinations
It’s absolutely insane that there is still a debate about vaccines in 2019. Not just a debate, an actual fight! Decades and decades of medical research prove the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Yet, thanks to one debunked study by a discredited and disgraced former doctor, we’re still doing this. One need only check the news to see how this dumb debate is harming people. 2018 gave us a near-record outbreak of measles, a disease preventable by a vaccine. Already in 2019, we’re seeing outbreaks of vaccine-controlled diseases all over the country and world. It’s terrifying and it’s putting people at risk. Unfortunately, the anti-vax movement appears to be growing at an alarming rate. Anti-vaxxers are loud, but so are we. And these pro-vaccine celebrities are using their platforms to spread truth and science.
You might be wondering why we need pro-vaccine celebrities. Well, we shouldn’t! We shouldn’t need a celeb to tell us their stance on life-saving vaccines. But … here we are. We’ve seen how much damage one celebrity has done to vaccination rates (looking at you, Jenny McCarthy). And we all know how celebrity-driven out country and culture is, right? So if it takes pro-vaccine celebrities to speak up and out about vaccinating your kids, so be it. We’ll take all the help we can get!
