Anti-vaccine misinformation continues to spread around the nation and a new report from the Center for Countering Digital Hate and Anti-Vax Watch has identified that a mere 12 people who are leading anti-vax advocates are responsible for the majority of disinformation. The report dubs them the Disinformation Dozen and points out how many of them remain active on social media spreading dangerous lies that are contributing to vaccine hesitancy.
