The AVN (formerly the Australian Vaccination Network) has vandals that support them. This does not make them look credible again.
Two billboards in Fremantle promoting immunisation of children, have been defaced.
The billboards on South Street share stories of local parents who follow an alternative type of lifestyle but also immunise their children.
The campaign was launched three weeks ago by the Immunisation Alliance of WA in response to figures showing that the Fremantle area had one of the lowest rates of vaccination in the country.
Both billboards have been sprayed with red paint spelling out the website of anti-immunisation group, Australian Vaccination Network.
Dr Katie Atwell from Immunisation WA said had been expecting the billboards to be vandalised for some time because of the level of opposition in the community.
Other than being mean spirited and getting out some anger and aggression, how is this useful? It’s not. It’s the last gasp attempts of a dead idea in a remaining supportive enclave. The AVN has been on the ropes for a while now. They have lost credibility and have lost their name as well.
