Anti-vaccine activists, Web 2.0, and the postmodern paradigm – An overview of tactics and tropes used online by the anti-vaccination movementArchived

ECDC comment

​The arguments of anti-vaccine groups mix scientific evidence (e.g. on side effects) with their views in a manner that makes it very difficult to differentiate between the two, and are often effective using emotional communication. Recognizing antivaccine tropes is essential in order to critically evaluate the information and misinformation encountered online.
