Let’s talk #VaccineLiability. There’s a vaccine court that has a lower evidentiary bar than any civil court in the US. If a plaintiff fails there, he can STILL sue in civil court afterward. Our system does protect families. #VaccinesSaveLives
Let’s talk #VAERS. It’s an important database in which anyone can voluntarily report any effect of a vaccine: injection site soreness,fever,fussiness,redness. I’ve reported. So when #ProPlague #Antivaxxers quote numbers, just ask for the breakdown of VAERs reports.#VaccinesWork
The #VAERS system helps monitor concerning symptoms that could start to appear (eg, ⬆️’d soreness or fever with a specific batch of vaccines). It helped identify concerns w/rotavirus so it could undergo rigorous safety testing. It’s a great 1st step in safety.#VaccineMonitoring

The GOP is still determined to end access to #healthcare for millions of Americans like me with #cancer and other life-threatening #PreExistingConditions.

Trump joins #antivaxxers to attack #Obamacare thinkprogress.org/trump-anti-vax… via @thinkprogress
Also, before the #ACA (also known as #Obamacare, which is a law not insurance) became law, women paid twice as much as men for health insurance, pregnancy was a #PreExistingCondition, mammograms and PAP tests were out-of-pocket expenses and 60M Americans were uninsured.
The #ACA has expanded #Medicaid in many states, created the healthcare marketplace which shows people a range of options within their states for affordable healthcare & it has saved millions of lives.
ACA will still be law after #M4A because it's essential healthcare protection.

It's about time this dangerous cult of #antivaxxers was held accountable for killing people with their irresponsible anti-science lunacy.

Rand Paul is a doctor.
This is the height of irresponsibility.

Monday I made a decision I should have made in 2016: I will no longer engage people deliberately lying about anything, be it me, the election, the events of 2016, Trump.

Wilfull ignorance is not a good faith position.
I like to engage readers, but not on false premises.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. None of us--myself included--is entitled to their own facts.

#FACT: Bernie Sanders lost the 2016 primary because he got 4M fewer votes. Period.
#FACT: Trump is a criminal. He was cited as a felon in the #MichaelCohen case. Period.

#FACT: Trump is a racist. As far back as the 1970s Trump was investigated by the DOJ for racial bias. He consistently attacks black celebrities and athletes. He announced his candidacy for president by calling Mexican immigrants rapists, murderers and drug dealers.

And why aren't parents who refuse to vaccinate also subject to charges of child abuse?
These children are being subjected to needless suffering and even future cancers because their parents choose #antivaxxer anti-science rhetoric over actual science in place since 1798.
And extending this liability question, if a son or daughter gets #cancer later due to failure of parents to vaccinate for #HPV, and/or is made sterile due to failure to vaccinate for mumps, can they sue their parents for damages?

An average person with the measles is likely to infect 12 to 18 others in an unvaccinated population. So what starts as an isolated case can rapidly become a full-blown epidemic. 53eig.ht/2DpOEPG

Tired of fighting the #antivaxxers on Twitter? Need some help in responding to their unsubstantiated claims and nonsense? Feel free to use this thread, or add your own comments. Be warned: it contains some crazy shit. And cursing. #wildride #VaccinesWork
I’ve asked several #antivaxxers for 1 peer-reviewed research study that supports their claim that vaccines cause autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Most never respond but some @ me a list of "studies" they claim make this link. For fun I started to read…
