For decades the definition of ‘vaccine’ had remained the same according to the Webster Dictionary. Earlier this year Webster changed the definition.
For decades the definition of Vaccine had been: ‘A preparation of killed microorganisms, living attenuated organisms or living fully virulent organisms that is administered to produce or artificially increase immunity to a particular disease’
The definition now reads ‘a preparation that is administered (as by injection) to stimulate the body’s immune response against a specific infectious agent or disease: such as a: an antigenic preparation of a typically inactivated or attenuated pathogenic agent (such as a bacterium or virus) or one of its components or products (such as a protein or toxin)’
Additionally, the definition of the word “anti-vaxxer” was changed. The definition now reads “A person who opposes the use of vaccines or regulations mandating vaccination”
While the term “anti-vaxxer” has always been extremely controversial and politicized, it appears that anyone who opposes the covid-19 vaccine, or mandates in any way is now considered anti-vaxx.
