Vaccine Activism: The Day The Vaxxed Bus Came To Town



This January, a few days after our local SkeptiCamp, the Vaxxed bus visited Monterey, California. Itís a problem anytime the Vaxxed bus visits anywhere, but this was my city and I wasnít happy about it.

First a bit of information. Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe is an American pseudoscience ďdocumentaryĒ directed by discredited doctor Andrew Wakefield and Produced by Del Bigtree. It was released in 2016 and has been a thorn in the science world ever since. The documentary is about a senior scientist whistleblower at the CDC. For the sake of brevity, letís just say that Vaxxed is pseudoscientific nonsense that seeks to keep people from getting vaccinated. Iím sure they would argue with that description.

In 2016, Vaxxed sent around a large bus to communities where people could visit and record their stories about how vaccines have harmed them. People write their names on the outside of the bus. The 2019 sequel, Vaxxed II: The Peopleís Truth, tells those stories.

When I learned that the Vaxxed bus was visiting Fishermanís Wharf in Monterey, California, I saw red. The idea of their nonsense being pushed in our area and a group of unvaccinated people mingling with people in a popular tourist destination was too much for me.

I might have overreacted.

2. Wakefield has been stripped of his medical license

by the UK. He will never get another license to practice medicine. Anywhere.
