There’s still officially one more day of
Anti-Vaccine Awareness Week (two really, as it’s an American idea) but here’s a round up of the posts anyway. While I know there are lots of great in-depth posts around the blogosphere on this the following list has been restricted to NZ posts to keep the local flavour. The posts are in roughly chronological order.
The University of Auckland Library at Tamaki Library blog Misinformation spread about HPV vaccine
Scott at Imperatorfish They Can’t Vaccinate Against Tin-Foil Hat Syndrome
Michelle at Skeptics In The Pub Vaccines: The actual facts (well, the links to some anyway…)
Alison Campbell at Bioblog on polio
Michelle at Skeptics In The Pub More facts about vaccines….
Michael Edmondsat Sciblogs Guest Work ’I’m not a Scientist but …’; Dissection of an antivaxxer’s argument
Alison Campbell at Bioblog chelation quackery around vaccination
Grant Jacobs at Code for Life Immunisation, then and now
Alison Campbell at Bioblog homeopathic vaccinations — fail
The next couple are not specifically about vaccination but I think are worth a mention:

Megan Leask at Southern Genes This Week in Science History: 1-11-10
If anyone knows of a post I’ve missed then please feel free to add it in the comments.
