This is an actual paragraph from a New York Times report about vaccine hesitancy among employees of an eyewear company in New York,
One employee said she was concerned because she thought a vaccine had caused the characters in the film “I Am Legend” to turn into zombies. People opposed to vaccines have circulated that claim about the movie’s plot widely on social media. But the plague that turned people into zombies in the movie was caused by a genetically reprogrammed virus, not by a vaccine.
We can debate how significant foreign governments’ influence campaigns, homegrown anti-vaccination sentiment, and conspiracy theories are. But little of that ultimately matters when you have people so devoid of critical thinking that they use events from a fictional movie to decide whether to get vaccinated against a deadly disease.
