Katalin Karikó and Drew Weissman have won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their work with pseudouridine, which allowed the development of mRNA vaccines against COVID-19. Antivaxxers are losing their minds over it, and I’m here for it.
An old school “vaccines cause autism” antivaxxer hosted new COVID-19 antivaxxers at an antivax conference last month. Although one new antivaxxer, Geert Vanden Bossche, was discomfited and pushed back against old antivax tropes, the rest joined Del Bigtree in spewing longstanding antivax tropes.
Robert Malone claims to be the “inventor of mRNA vaccines,.” Whether his claim is legitimate or not, his fans are editing Wikipedia, and he’s spreading COVID-19 misinformation of the worst kind.
