    Vaccines are one of our best tools to prevent dangerous diseases, but they come with side effects. So would it be safer not to vaccinate?

  • Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    Dive into sources and further reading here: https://sites.google.com/view/sources-vaccines


    Vaccines and their side effects are a hard topic to cover – we know we keep saying this, but this case especially, there were a lot of things to consider. You can’t blame people for being worried, so we wanted to take their concerns seriously.


    Because it is impossible to cover everything there is to know about vaccines in a ten minute video our sources are extra extensive and explain a lot of aspects in more detail, with an extra focus on further reading.


    So if you want to dive in deeper or have more arguments at hand for your next heated discussion, here you go.

      I'm sorry, but we are the sickest species ON THE PLANET. Just think about that for ONE minute.
      Our gut microbiome is being sterilized by pesticides like round up, and we are told they are safe(yes, they kill the bacteria in your gut - shocker), but DON'T WORRY, they have something you can buy for that.

      We are developing autoimmune diseases left and right. A study was just released that shows how millennials health plummets at around age 27, and no one is concerned that it's something to do with out healthcare? "healthcare" - that's a misnomer at this point.

      The SAME people that push round-up as being safe(now proven to cause cancer in a court of law), "provide" us with cancer treatments and vaccines.

      The same people who sell us vaccines, treat our children of these chronic illnesses. NO ONE is brave enough(or intelligent enough) to raise an eyebrow to that?

      Oh, wait, they are, but then they are told they are just crazy conspiracy theorists who are probably literally hitler and voted for trump. And people fall for it because it makes them FEEL safe. Meanwhile over FIFTY PERCENT of our youth(YOUTH!) have chronic illnesses that the AMA says they will NEVER recover from. And it's not enough for these mega corps to make millions or billions, now they are pushing for trillions.

      That's not fishy to you guys?

      I swear, people have thrown common sense directly out of the nearest window for, "double blind published data" We will NEVER get it. There are too many variables involved and you know this, that's why you keep asking.

      Honestly it makes me sick and people who are working for them should be ashamed of themselves. They aren't, because they have money in the bank, but one day, people are going to have had enough and they will be found and prosecuted.

      How many more of our loved ones have to suffer and die before it gets to that point?

      thank you for making this video, its been a great help for my social justice project. I hope to use this as a source to help write my letter to a politician, (who is undecided as of writing this), I really hope to make a change and to make vaccinations more mandatory in the united states!

        instead of calling them anti vaxxers we should call them pro disease!

          So... Vaccines are basically injections filled with bacteria that might harm us...and we use them so our immune system get used to them and make new memory cells, oh.. Ok... Now we have an even more reason to be scared of vaccines

                  Stupid people looking at this video... it isn't even real! Vaccines have loads of harmful ingredients in them such as Aluminium, Taste improvers (I am not even joking, that's in there) Thiomersal <--- THATS A TYPE OF MERCURY, and GMO's. We should be ALL NATURAL
                  Be organic as much as possible! Wash your hands, be hygienic. Big pharma is poisoning us and we will all be autistic!

                    The idiocy in this comments section is absolutely staggering. You guys REALLY think this video is educational? I bet you think Bill Nye and Myth Busters are just peachy and have an "I fucking love science" t-shirt, dontcha? You know what feels even better than acting like you're smart? Actually doing your research and knowing what you're talking about.
                    But you know what's easier than thinking for yourself? Letting other people think for you. Then you make "savage" comments about people who dare to disagree, while projecting your stupidity onto them(by calling them stupid).
                    Hell, most of you haven't even been able to read long enough to make it to the end of this comment. TL;DR! LOL! But if you have, I'll commend you and ask you not to believe me. DO your own research and particularly, look into the work of Dr. Shoenfeld. His resume and qualifications are so extensive that I can't even post it all without copy/pasting, and that gets my comments deleted. He's dedicated his entire life to studying autoimmune diseases. He says vaccines are causing them when you have the right genetics for it. That's why not everyone gets them. He has videos on youtube. You can read his qualifications there(one being the HEAD CHAIR of medicine at TEL AVIV university(the most prestigious university in Israel and top ten in the world outside of the US). Over 1600 published papers and he's been cited by professionals over 20,000 times. He's no quack. Look into it. Or keep letting other people think for you and hope you never lose a loved one to chronic illness that you could have stopped if you weren't so damn lazy/distracted/willfully ignorant.

                      It is educational though that's the thing, and if anything, this comment is hypocritical. "But you know what's easier than thinking for yourself? Letting other people think for you." You then go tell us to listen to some other guy and believe everything he says. "Then you make "savage" comments about people who dare to disagree, while projecting your stupidity onto them(by calling them stupid)." Your entire comment is dedicated to calling people stupid for believing something. And yes, I did read the entire comment. You ask me not to believe you, but I will post this comment anyway, because I am already a lot of words in and I am not letting this go to waste.

                      Edit: Could you please link some of doctor Shoenfield's videos and articles? I can't seem to find any.

                              Unfortunately, one of the devastating conditions I received from big pharma as a vaccine injured child, I've been diagnosed with:
                              Living over the age of five
                              Not dying in measles outbreaks
                              Not being sick constantly
                              Being unable to spread deadly disease to those who are unable to get vaccinated

                              Please pray for me 😭😭😭 It's difficult waking up every day to find out that I'm not going to die of easily preventable disease.

                                      One note for the creator of the vid, you should also take care WHO give you vaccines. Under-trained pharmacists have had a few cases of accidentally injecting joints with flu-shots, and causing permanent damage.

                                          The story about Bill Gates not vaccinating his kids is from a writer for one of the most infamous misinformation news websites on the internet. It's called "YourNewsWire" - look it up. If you want to believe that fake news then that really shows who's ignorant here. Also, the Martin Gore tragedy, while sad, is not some unexpected phenomena. Everyone knows that, in rare cases, vaccines can cause some serious side effects, especially for someone Gore's age. The thing is, the risks involved with the yellow fever vaccine that he died from are much less serious then the disease it prevents.

                                          Remember: Vaccines can cause serious health problems including brain inflammation and autoimmune disorders, allergies, ear infections, and more There's a very real association between vaccine complications and learning and behavioral disorders in children The components of vaccines have never been proven safe The ingredients and contaminants in vaccines can be detrimental to your health There are far safer and more effective ways to protect your children and yourself against disease. For example, a Japanese study from last year showed that school children taking vitamin D3 supplements were 58 percent less likely to catch influenza A. That's a higher effectiveness than any flu vaccine can claim, and doesn't come with a barrage of potentially devastating side effects!

                                            There isn't a "very real association between vaccine complications and behavioral disorders in children." This is essentially an unnecessary, long winded way to say that "vaccines cause autism", and they don't. Stop spreading this misinformation that has absolutely zero evidence.

                                            The components in vaccines are rigorously tested. Vaccines have one of the highest research standards of any medical procedure since they are used as a preventative measure instead of a treatment. You get far more of some of the components in vaccines from the food you eat and the environment you live in than from vaccines themselves.

                                            There currently isn't a more effective way to prevent some diseases other than getting vaccinated. While you may be able to take vitamin D3 or whatever for the influenza virus, you can't do the same for measles, polio, tetanus and others. No vitamin or nutritional supplement is going to save any kid from getting ravaged by those horrible diseases.

                                          Another great video on an important topic, but I think it fell short on the most important point to make to anti-vaxxers: vaccines and Autism. Yes, you said they don't cause Autism, but there's no explanation for why people think that. Mainly, the similar age between when Autism can be diagnosed and when vaccines are given, but this correlation is not causation. Both vaccines and diagnosing Autism happen around the same age for completely separate but specific reasons, which are not at all related to each other. THAT is the information anti-vaxxers need to hear.

                                              Vaccinations aren't inherently bad. The MMR vaccines, however, are bad, since they're given to children at 4 months of age. Not only that, they'll give you 14 or so of them in one session.

                                              All these many thousand years of scientific advancements to reach vaccines and now we have to defend them from people afraid their child might develop high-functioning autism or get "poisoned".


                                              I so wish they would actually listen to reason and take in the information from videos and sources like this... but the truth is I doubt any of them would listen no matter how calmly or rationally you tried to convince them. In their minds, they are right and you are just an ignorant fool for trying to explain otherwise. Hence, I lose my temper and tell them what I really think of them.


                                              I don't feel it makes a difference either way. They are set in their ways and only the deaths of their children (and themselves) will show them otherwise. I will not feel sorry for them, because by then they'll have killed many unvaccinated people who could not get the treatment that others could for one reason or another.


                                              Vaccines save lives. If can't see that, you just don't want to and I do not respect you for that. No one should.

                                                But frankly, I wouldn't feel bad to hear about it. They are causing serious harm to both scientific progress and putting tons of children at risk. Not even just children, but people with compromised or otherwise ineffective immune systems. I swear, if even one person I care about comes CLOSE to someone with a preventable disease because of these people, I might have to be restrained to not pull out a gun myself.

                                              My nanny (Grandma) grew up in the era where there was NO VACCINES. She contracted EVERYTHING. She survived the measles, chickenpox, & mumps. Other people, sadly, didn't. The only reasons people shouldn't get vaccinated is that 1. If you or your child are allergic. 2. If you have a severe medical condition (Cancer, HIV/AIDS, etc.). Or 3. If you are too old or too young to get vaccinated. If you are healthy, not allergic, and at the right age range, you SHOULD get vaccinated. The pros of vaccines will always outweigh the cons. As for my nanny, she's alive and well at the age of 82.

                                                And no he did not say that but the way he said it was misleading. He thinks that better healthcare overall will result in negative population growth (but the overall population will still grow). In simple terms he wants to decrease child birth rates in order to stabilize the world population. He’s not saying vaccines or better healthcare will actually reduce the population overall or negative in anyway. Now how he came up with that conclusion I have no clue. If you want to know you can search that up

Vaccines kill people as well and give them life changing defaults that they have to deal with for the rest of their lives. Hasn't anyone seen Bill Gates talking about depopulation, he says " with the right vaccine we could bring that number down" he is talking about the co2 and carbon footprint of people per year, so with the right vaccines he could reduce the co2 & carbon by way of vaccine kill the people stop global warming.

                                                        I really don't believe Kurzgesagt made a clickbait title to lure in antivaxxers (even though that is a good thing). I think they're just being as honest and upfront about vaccines as they can be, so no one can see them as "one-sided", or "manipulative". They are acknowledging that there are risks.

                                                              properly, how would you feel? And what if there was a one in three chance that it was downright
                                                              dangerous? Faced by these sorts of statistics, most consumers would be furious. And yet
                                                              according to an article in the ‘Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics’, entitled ‘Institutional

                                                              Dr Tom Jefferson of the independent Cochrane Collaboration has undertaken
                                                              comprehensive reviews of some vaccines. According to his findings the ‘flu vaccine for example
                                                              showed “

                                                              from pneumonia”. .In other words, the flu vaccine policy, ‘while eminently agreeable, is
                                                              unsupported by evidence that has been systematically collected, critically evaluated, and

                                                              makers. He states that ‘in my opinion,

                                                              It is also worth pondering the words of immunologist Dr Tetyana Obukhanych, author of
                                                              ‘Vaccine Illusion’
                                                              “I am very concerned that “immunologic memory” of adjuvant-containing vaccines is actually

                                                              than the basis of immunity.
                                                              Furthermore, I am very concerned that “successful” prevention of childhood diseases by means

                                                              I am also very concerned that vaccination campaigns work by disrupting disease transmission,
                                                              which reduces the chances of exposure, rather than by establishing a population’s immunity. By

                                                              campaigns have ensured that it is long gone.
                                                              All of this is a direct outcome of the “desired” vaccination effects, the impact of which hasn’t

                                                              We thought that
                                                              vaccines work just like natural immunity. We
