What is their stated reason to oppose vaccination?

Because the plague spreading vermin I know literally just say "I don't wanna" or "I'm not taking the Mark of the Beast!"

They claim that a 53year-old uncle of a friend dropped dead three days after being vaccinated.

No weird religious stuff here. Just poor risk assessment.

"They claim"

Damn fee fees.

the others I've heard (but disagree with):

"I'm not taking some half-baked experimental drug"

"you can't make me" (the freedom argument)

"We don't know the long term consequences" (this one is ironically, tragically, funny)

and then various forms of "can't trust the gubment"
