RFK Jr. Running Mate Lacks Basic Knowledge of Vaccine Policy

In The Politics of Autism, I analyze the discredited notion that vaccines cause autism. This bogus idea can hurt people by allowing diseases to spread  And among those diseases could be COVID-19.

Antivaxxers are sometimes violent, often abusive, and always wrongA leading anti-vaxxer is presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.  He has repeatedly compared vaccine mandates to the Holocaust.  Rolling Stone and Salon retracted an RFK article linking vaccines to autism.

RFK Jr. picked wealthy fellow antivaxxer Nicole Shanahan as his running mate.  Like him, she has spread the falsehood that vaccines cause autism.
