This is a big piece of the solution & where parent-led groups like @Voices4Vaccines can help. But to get this content disseminated on the Internet is $$ & often means fighting an uphill battle w/reco engines that amplify sensational content & conspiracy groups.
This is in large part bc there’s an asymmetry of passion - conspiracy & vax truther moms are out on the boards evangelizing constantly. We did 1 crunchy thing - cloth diapers - and FB reco engine pushed me AV groups constantly. Collaborative filtering.
They’re not convincing debaters, they use the same gish gallop, linkspam-into-submission style that other truthers do. But if someone challenge the misinfo they’re “attacking the parents of vaccine-injured children.” It’s a cudgel. Many mom groups just ban vaccine conversations.
