You're free to define circlejerk as arbitrarily as you like and call everything circlejerking. Might even say going around criticizing what other people enjoy seeing for circlejerking is its own little circlejerk.
I would say a real circlejerk is if people either get together and just agree with each other, like stereotypical fake bitches complementing each other on everything. Or more related to this site, if you see a string of comments with an opinion and everybody after that being like, "yeah, I agree" or, "you're totally right" and, "I feel the same way about this," etc.
However, I disagree in that anybody who is pleased by this content is enjoying a dick-grabbin' good time. I looked through it, thought it was neat, and made mental notes of points I thought were well phrased to save for later (because I DO come across people who think eating organic can replace vaccines, and it's fucking annoying) without interacting with anybody else who said they liked the post.

You captured the forceful element, but maybe less so appropriateness and clarity. What do you even mean by that first line? That if you believe in the information you put forth, it is thus invalidated?
And whatever, the intent behind creating this work, the fact that it exists means it can be used for other purposes. A television, car, or rice cooker would be produced to earn money (and in the case of goods or services that are more so unique or luxury/quality oriented, recognition) for a company, but the consumers buy them to use them. The point here isn't that the comic is exactly the same as a product you'd buy, but that the people who make things and the people who use things can have different end goals in mind. It's an inherent part of the interaction.
So let's look at the claims you make here.
"The comic was made to ride off it's popularity"
The popularity of people agreeing vaccination is good? Good. Keep the herd immunity going strong so that we don't forget that vaccination is important since society has clearly lapsed in this department lately.
"get the artist more recognition"
Well, it would suck if the artist got no appreciation for their abilities, and no recognition for the time and effort that goes into a project.
"not educate people"
Perhaps the artist isn't doing it by himself or herself, but they've created a tool for other people to use. That in itself has merit. On the other hand, how do we know whoever made this had no intention whatsoever of educating people in an engaging manner. What if they had more than one goal for making this comic? These are not questions we can certainly answer, but I think it's good to keep possibilities in mind.
And how can we say that it hasn't helped anybody to better understand the scope of the controversy or to fight misinformation? If even a single person decides that antivaxxing is stupid, then the comic had a beneficial effect on society. And in the end, you and I won't be able to measure for sure how many people this content and the reactions to this content will affect. As such, we've no real ability to say for sure what effect it has despite the creator's intentions. It's pointless to seriously speculate due to lack of evidence, but hoping that this content can inform, or at the very least entertain, is fine.

Just admit that you're easy to manipulate. At the end of the day that's all this is. It's all it will ever be. You'll see it enough times and maybe you'll realize it. Doesn't make you wise to rationalize it, just makes you a tool like the rest of them. Don't waste your mind like this.
