Get a Anti-Vaxxer mug for your mate Beatrix.
A person dead set on listening to conspiracy theories about "Big Pharma" and ignoring all evidence to the contrary. Hallmarks of your typical anti-vaxxer include a staggeringly overinflated ego, pervasive selfishness, and insistence that they know more than real doctors/researchers because they read mommy blogs. An anti-vaxxer is also likely to view children as their property with no medical rights of their own (MY child, MY choice).
