Combating Vaccine Hesitancy: Article and Websites
Do you think you made a reasonable decision not to get vaccinated? Think again. You're just vaccine hesitant and there are some organizations that hope to change that.
And you thought you had simply made a reasonable decision not to get vaccinated. Step back a moment and admit you are “vaccine hesitant,” just a frightened little citizen that doesn’t like needles.
I first heard the term, “vaccine hesitant,” from a friend of mine back in May of 2021. We were are on a hike in the Laguna Mountains here in Southern Commiefornia discussing the vaccines. He was expounding on people who were “vaccine hesitant.” I said something like, “I’m not ‘vaccine hesitant,’ I have chosen not to get the vaccine. There’s not a hesitant bone in my body because I’m never going to get it.”
But I had never heard the term before, so started looking around on Mainstream Media and sure enough, it was everywhere. That’s when I realized just how propagandized my friend was and how fortunate I was not to be reading the Mainstream Media.
As much as we’d like to think the pandemic is on the way out, the powers that be are still pushing vaccines and trying to fight the ‘vaccine hesitant’ with propaganda to change behavior for the next pandemic and vaccine rollout.
DO NOT COMPLY!
CDC Partners With ‘Social and Behavior Change’ Initiative to Silence Vaccine Hesitancy
Website: The Epoch Times

This article is not unbelievable…we are way past that, but instructive. This is what we’re fighting.
The video [by Dr. Mary Talley Bowden] received thousands of comments, including from Team Halo members Dr. Zachary Rubin, a pediatrician, and Christina Kim, an oncology nurse practitioner. Team Halo is a social media influencer campaign formed as part of the United Nations Verified initiative and the Vaccine Confidence Project to increase vaccine uptake.
“That doc is problematic,” Rubin wrote. Kim followed with, “Wow. That ‘doctor’ should have her license revoked.”
Some cyber “gang stalking”
Moreover, Shots Heard doesn’t limit itself to simply “reporting.” When Bowden posted on Twitter, “Are Americans supposed to take this [expletive]? We don’t want your shot, and we especially don’t want it for our kids,” her post was flagged and flooded with Shots Heard member comments.
Such tactics are called “gang stalking,” Nicole Sirotek, a registered nurse in Nevada and the founder of American Frontline Nurses, told The Epoch Times.
Shots Heard Round the World (a website)
From their home page:
If you stand up for vaccine science, we’ll stand up for you.
Shots Heard is a rapid-response digital cavalry dedicated to protecting the online safety of health care providers and practices.
We know what this means. They are only “stand[ing] up” for a particular narrative. I wonder who funds them? They also write this:
The Shots Heard toolkit
Download the comprehensive guide to preparing for, defending against, and cleaning up after an anti-vax attack online.
On the PDF you can download on their site, the front page says:
Guidance on how to prepare for, defend against, and move forward after an anti-vaccination attack.
It’s funny…the left always approaches these things by explaining their very own tactics against those they don’t agree with. I suppose we could just replace “anti-vaxxers” with “Covidians” and have a manual of our own.
The Public Good Projects (a website)
This is the “public health nonprofit” that Shots Heard Round the World uses to fight all those nasty anti-vaxxers. From their home page:
PGP (The Public Good Projects) is a public health nonprofit specializing in large-scale media monitoring programs, social and behavior change interventions, and cross-sector initiatives.
From their “Services” page:
Social influencers build trust with their followers, and we use that authentic connection with communities to drive statistically significant shifts in knowledge, attitudes, and behavior.

This article also appears on my website, The Asylum. The website also has several things that are not possible to do on Substack: The World Economic Forum Members Reference (thanks to Dr. Malone), Red State/Blue State reference showing Senate and House percentages by party affiliation, quotes, a large resources section, a robust search feature and some other things unique to the site: quizzes, word games and leaked communications. These latter three are satirical and funny, at least in my mind, but you'll have to be the ultimate judge on that.
