the conclusion seems so obvious, what's the meaning of this study?

We need even the most obvious truths codified on paper and indisputable. It's a serious problem.

And yet antivaxxers still exist.

Imagine the amount of antivaxxers there would be if credible, peer reviewed scientific studies on the topic did not exist because vaccination working is 'the most obvious truth'.

On second thought, maybe don't imagine that. And stop thinking about antivaxxers, it's almost weekend ;)

I'm not anti-vax but acting like they are the worst corner of society is dumb. There are things that are far more intuitively evident that people still argue about

And I was literally replying to a five-word comment out of which the most important word was 'antivaxxers'.

Would have been a bit strange if I were to attempt naming 'the worst corner of society' simply out of nowhere, don't you think?

Any scientist will tell you, just because it's published in a peer reviewed paper, doesn't mean it's "indisputable"

If that were true, many scientists would be out of a job

Half of science is skepticism

They got paid to do this study.

To be fair, a lot of rich people / politicians insist people will pay anything for medical care they want. It might be worth rebutting.

You mean we don't have the best health care system on the planet? Surely my congressman wouldn't lie to me!

I don't disagree with your point, but this paper is based on the healthcare system in Vietnam

You don't need studies to rebutt such people. Don't try to defemd an utterly pointless study that someone though is worth sharing.

It's an obvious conclusion, but you need the data to back it up, otherwise it's just an anecdote.

Oppositional politicians will say you can't make even an obvious claim unless you have data to back it up. Those same oppositional politicians will still ignore this evidence and enjoy the profit of the healthcare industry.

Those people now say you need more evidence, and when you get more evidence they'll ask for more. Hard to convince someone that something is true when they're paid to believe it's not.
