Tara Haelle will focus on vaccine hesitancy and vaccine refusal. This is a global health threat that lurks unnoticed until it erupts into unpredictable disease outbreaks that are difficult to contain. She explains what underlies the fear and hesitancy that many people have toward vaccines, why it’s not as irrational as some believe, and what’s necessary to address it.

Tara Haelle is a freelance science and multimedia journalist who writes regularly at Forbes, NPR, Scientific American, Slate, Medscape, and other U.S.-based publications. She co-wrote “The Informed Parent: A Science-Based Guide to the First Four Years” with science journalist Emily Willingham, and she blogs about science and parenting at Red Wine & Applesauce. She holds a master’s in photojournalism from the University of Texas at Austin and has published her images in several publications.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

She quotes Ben Franklin in the worst most emotional time in his life…oh from 250 years ago. Yeah really pertinent.

Laura Powers says:

She is selling shame as a tool. No science in shaming anyone.

There is Dihydrogen Monoxide in vaccines

You think we live longer today? You think we are stronger and faster today?

Why vaccines cause Brain Damage and many, many other neurological and physiological diseases – Wake Up to the fact that Vaccines are creating a pandemic of illness – @t

Christa Clark says:

Apparently she is unaware of her own ignorance and bias

Janet Hofmann says:

Tara, you seem like a very sincere person that believes all of what you just said. But to truly understand vaccine hesitation amongst educated folks you need to watch all of the Vaccines Revealed documentaries and address the MANY safety issues, lack of sound testing, testimonies of whistleblowers, Doctors marginalized for speaking out….. please show me a valid, fact based analysis of these concerns.

Norbert Kleespieß says:

Becouse all the viruses like polio were created and designed in a lab for profit only! Think about it!

Andrea Breton says:

Its one a couple minutes in and id like to mention pandas disease where the childs body is not creating antibodies resulting in needing plasma transfusions

Steven Blade says:

What about vaccines containing animal organs.

sam mink George says:

Can some body wake this woman up, and ask her where all those bad viruses or bacteria in the first place come from, I personally thinks that we ( humanity ) are living in a huge farms or labs and every farm has a flag and borders to divide humanity like a (green house )and this place called earth and somebody doing all sort of experiments on us and humanity must pay for everything's from the times we are born until we dies from drinking water to drinking milk even every time we breath or sleep or we eat or when we dies we pay big sum and we all pay for every minutes we spent on earth, and from the time we are born they start vaccinate us until death and also we experiencing sickness from the time we are born until death none stop, lets imagine if this true what every human thinks is vaccine really to saves lives, or the same labs create the viruses and the vaccine and not just that they also create or engineered wars, famine, drought, and now the united nation agenda 21 which is saying wants to eliminate %75 to %95 of earth populations with in ten years, so does any one thinks that this woman on the stage talking none since and so many like her perhaps for money or positions.

Alexa Horse says:

Pray vaccine to come soon as God Jesus loved, healed n died 4 all to take ur punishment of ur sins upon Himself n arose from the grave on the 3rd day…. C 'miracles of Jesus' in Google..

Alexander Kurtz says:

I hate it when I see Karens and other idiots infecting comment sections on these videos. You do not know what you are talking about or have minimal understanding. You need to stop with your conspiracy bs, or COVID will never end. This, (outbreaks and pandemics) are partly your fault, they are. The mental gymnastics for you required to back your claims with anecdotes and incredulous evidence is insanity. Shut up to all you Karens.

jessica haskins says:

This lady has no idea what she is talking about

C0gitoZ33 Droid says:

super-obese woman talking about health issues???????????

R says:

I'll get my health information from someone who doesn't look like a cow.

Anonymous says:

The same reason people who have buffets are afraid of you.

Melanie Evans says:

5:25 “ polio returned to Syria when civil unrest broke out there…..” Hmmmm. Sorta like a political response—and there’s the rub—

Melanie Evans says:

And HOW MANY vaccinations must we make, how many diseases must we release by 2030?

Melanie Evans says:

My healthy nephew infant DIED within twenty-four hours after his routine vaccinations.

5445 says:

You didn't convince me vaccines are safe.

Marilyn Aderson says:

Why so many Big Pharma backed pro-vaccine talks – choose for yourself – human trafficking is the real issue – address not my child and not your child either – stop all infringement on Constitutional Rights – there is NO Proof the Polio Vaccine helped at all – do your research. Too much BS sponsored by Big Pharma.

Traci Mann says:

people are afraid of the "franken – virus" that's contained within the vaccine. I'ts not just a pathogen anymore it's a vaccine made of parts of this and that, including nano tech.

Anonymous says:

I imagine buffet restaurants fear her when she walks in the door.

Beyond Belief says:

Could you please provide one double-blind, placebo-controlled study that can prove the safety and effectiveness of vaccines?

Could you please provide scientific evidence on ANY study which can confirm the long-term safety and effectiveness of vaccines?

Could you please provide scientific evidence which can prove that disease reduction in any part of the world, at any point in history was attributable to inoculation of populations?

Could you please explain how the safety and mechanism of vaccines in the human body are scientifically proven if their pharmacokinetics (the study of bodily absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of ingredients) are never examined or analyzed in any vaccine study?

Could you please provide scientific justification as to how injecting a human being with a confirmed neurotoxin is beneficial to human health and prevents disease?

Can you provide a risk/benefit profile on how the benefits of injecting a known neurotoxin exceeds its risks to human health for the intended goal of preventing disease?

Could you please provide scientific justification on how bypassing the respiratory tract (or mucous membrane) is advantageous and how directly injecting viruses into the bloodstream enhances immune functioning and prevents future infections?

Could you please provide scientific justification on how a vaccine would prevent viruses from mutating?

Could you please provide scientific justification as to how a vaccination can target a virus in an infected individual who does not have the exact viral configuration or strain the vaccine was developed for?

Blocking relevant questions is pure cowardice
