My technology is the hypodermic syringe, which is used as a method for the administration of numerous drugs and vaccines. There are numerous interesting cultural ideas that have developed surrounding vaccines, which are often represented by the hypodermic syringe. Anxieties over the potential dangers of injecting ourselves with substances has led to various interesting myths about the technology. Perhaps the most well known of these is the supposed link between vaccines and the development of autism in children. For my paper, I would like to further explore how these ideas came to be, as well as if the general acceptance by society that anti-vaccine people are crazy and refuse to listen to science is actually shutting down conversations about the real potential risks of requiring vaccinations for all children.
