Analysis / Bias
Vaccine Safety Info routinely publishes conspiracies and pseudoscience regarding vaccines. They do not produce original content but rather curate content from questionable sources such as Children’s Health Defense 17 Pharma Henchmen Who Voted to Experiment on Your Kids. While they state, “The intent of this site is to curate news, research, perspectives, and data on vaccines and their safety to support people being able to make informed decisions,” this is not true as they never publish any scientific reports that are positive (factual) about vaccines.
For example, they typically publish so-called research from Pseudoscience websites such as GreenMedInfo, which has an abysmal track record with fact-checkers: 22 Studies and Reports Raise Doubts About COVID Vaccine Efficacy and. In general, Vaccine Safety Info promotes anti-vaccine information and is rarely factual.
