The antivax idea of “purebloods” is back and endangering a child’s life. Same as it ever was, unfortunately.
Recently, Novavax, an “old school” recombinant protein-based COVID-19 vaccine, was granted emergency use authorization. Now antivaxxers are fear mongering about its use of “moth cells” and “tree bark.” That’s because to antivaxxers, it’s about the vaccines, not any specific technology.
Antivaxxers frequently make the false claim that mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines “permanently alter your DNA”. These claims are really a concern about “impurifying” their “purity of essence” and have now gone into some truly disturbing territory, such as antivaxxers calling themselves “purebloods.”
