Does more need to be done to combat misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine and vaccination in general? ?

I am a regular user of social media and you often see all sorts of nonsense about vaccination. One person earlier was even claiming that vaccines are designed to kill LGBT people, which is odd as I'm bisexual and have yet to be killed by a vaccine.

Update:

I'm not sure why there are two question marks.

    The antivax conspiracy theory has attached itself deeply into society, much like an Alien Facehugger, and it's not letting us go. It afflicts both liberals and conservatives equally, one of the few times that both sides have something in common. This is one of those times when the divisions in society are not political affiliation, but scientific knowledge levels.

    Even after the original report author that linked vaccines to autism has had his paper debunked several times over, and he has had his license to practice medicine revoked, people still believe it, because they want to believe it. At this point nothing can be done to help those people, they are a lost cause, and all we can do is vaccinate ourselves, and hopefully it'll help them become immune through herd immunity (yes, herd immunity actually works after you develop a vaccine, not before).

    Regarding the double question marks in your headline, it's likely due to the fact that there might be an extraneous space after your original question mark. The Yahoo Answers portal automatically looks for the last character in your question, and if there is a question mark there, then it won't add an automatic one. In this case it looked at the last character and didn't see a question mark there, but a space, and so it thought there wasn't a question mark there, so it added one.

    If people had half a brain, they'd realise that most of Social Media is a total joke.  Anyone that believes that vaccines have any way of knowing whether a human is bisexual etc is a total moron and there is nothing anyone can do to stop gullible morons, except sending them back to School.

    Thje only lies and misinformation about vaccines is coming from the government and the so called scientists. They are all in it to make money at the people's expense.

    It wouldn't hurt I guess.. Of course the thing about social media is everybody's got their own information sources selected to confirm whatever they already believe. Anyway this is a nice one:

    The reason there are two question marks is this site automatically adds one to the end of every question by default.
