21 Celebrity Anti-Vaxxers

In recent years, a growing number of celebrities have been speaking out against the supposed "dangers" of vaccinations. Some of these famous people believe that the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine caused their children to develop autism, which has been disproven countless times. Other celebrities simply think that vaccinations should be a personal choice that is not mandated by the government.

Who is the most famous celebrity anti-vaxxer? Charlie Sheen ranks high. In 2008, he wrote a legal letter to his daughters' doctor, which stated that he did not consent to the vaccinations, reportedly viewing them as "poison." TV personality Jenny McCarthy is perhaps the most famous face of the anti-vaccine movement, as she believes that the MMR vaccine caused autism in her son, Evan. 

Many other celebrities have chosen to not vaccinate their children, due to their beliefs that the vaccines cause autism or are otherwise harmful and unnecessary for their kids.
