276 people took the pledge
By politely responding to posts that promote anti-vaccine propaganda we can make it clear that those posts will not go unchallenged.
Most people who post material of that sort do not expect to be challenged. If they are repeatedly challenged they will usually stop posting or de-friend the challengers.
By challenging the propaganda you will ensure that the facts are represented in the comments. By discouraging postings you will contribute to, perhaps, thousands fewer people being exposed to damaging misinformation.
I invite you to pledge to respond whenever you see anti-vaccine propaganda and to share this invitation with every rational person you can.
If you see a pro-vaccine post on your timeline, I invite you to share it with your friends.
Together we can discourage the spread of this damaging and dangerous propaganda.

Update #3Posted by Daniel Weinstein (Campaign Leader) on Jul 4, 2012
I've created a new Cause called Vaccines Save Lives. And I've created a new action called The Flu Vaccine Initiative. Please take the time and have a look. Pledge if it's valid for you and pass it on if you think it's worthwhile. Thanks.
Update #2Posted by Daniel Weinstein (Campaign Leader) on Jun 28, 2012
If you wish to post comments, please go to https://www.facebook.com/AntiAntiVaccine. Abusive commenters will still be removed, but for others the comments will be open. (I know about the typo in the last update, but there doesn't seem to be a way to correct it.)
Update #1Posted by Daniel Weinstein (Campaign Leader) on Jun 28, 2012
The number of comments this campaign ha received is very large and mostly take the anti-vaccine line. From now on there will be no comments shown on this pledge. A communication channel will be set up soon for every non-abusesive commenter to have his or her say.
