Vaccine misinformation has run rampant on pregnancy apps

One swipe to the left, however — to the “Discussions” tab, or the chat forum — and things quickly got murky. A discussion page titled “Any moms not sure about Vaccines” touted “Doctor Paul Thomas’s delayed vaccine schedule plan” for routine childhood vaccinations. The plan recommends “no vaccines” during pregnancy, skipping babies’ vaccinations for Hepatitis B, Rotavirus, and IPV, among others, and makes the MMR vaccine optional. A respondent pointed out that Thomas had his medical license suspended for misleading patients about vaccinations; another replied, “That just makes me want to follow his vaccine schedule.” Thomas didn’t respond to a request for comment.
