Vaccinations

 

Private insurance companies, which do the best liability studies, have totally abandoned coverage for damage to life and property due to:

*Acts of God

*Nuclear war and nuclear power plant accidents

*Vaccination

Mandatory vaccine programs are “A violation of the Nuremberg Code in that they force individuals to have medical treatment against their will, or to participate in the functional equivalent of a vast experiment without fully informed consent.” -- Dr. Jane Orient

 

"Even if all the experts agree, they may well be mistaken."--Bertrand Russell

 

"Vaccination is not necessary, not useful, does not protect. There are twice as many casualties from vaccination as from AIDS." --Dr. Gerhard Buchwald

"Do Not Take Any Vaccinations. This is the standard deceptive way you are given the Establishment's Biological Warfare infections." --Dr. William D. Kelly

"Like sheep being led to slaughter, people are following the advice of medical pundits as though they are gods with divine intellect. Why is it that so few dare even question what's in a shot before allowing a doctor to jab you with a needle?."--Greg Ciola

 

 

 

 

 

 

Swine Flu Swindle

Russell Blaylock Interview 1-18-12

 

 

"In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it is just as bad not to say it."
-- J. Cousteau, 1991 explorer and UNESCO courier



"The world today has 6.8 billion people. That's heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent." -- Bill Gates

 

 

Freedom of Information Act in the UK filed by a doctor there has revealed 30 years of secret official documents showing that government experts have

1. Known the vaccines don’t work

2. Known they cause the diseases they are supposed to prevent

3. Known they are a hazard to children

4. Colluded to lie to the public

5. Worked to prevent safety studies

 

Those are the same vaccines that are mandated to children in the US.

 

Educated parents can either get their children out of harm’s way or continue living inside one of the largest most evil lies in history, that vaccines – full of heavy metals, viral diseases, mycoplasma, fecal material, DNA fragments from other species, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80 (a sterilizing agent) – are a miracle of modern medicine.

 

Freedom of Information Act filed in the US with the CDC by a doctor with an autistic son, seeking information on what the CDC knows about the dangers of vaccines, had by law to be responded to in 20 days. Nearly 7 years later, the doctor went to court and the CDC argued it does not have to turn over documents. A judge ordered the CDC to turn over the documents on September 30th, 2011.

 

On October 26, 2011, a Denver Post editorial expressed shock that the Obama administration, after promising to be especially transparent, was proposing changes to the Freedom of Information Act that would allow it to go beyond declaring some documents secret and to actually allow government agencies (such as the CDC) to declare some document “non-existent.”

 

Simultaneous to this on-going massive CDC cover up involving its primary “health” not recommendation but MANDATE for American children, the CDC is in deep trouble over its decades of covering up the damaging effects of fluoride and affecting the lives of all Americans, especially children and the immune compromised. Lawsuits are being prepared. Children are ingesting 3-4 times more fluoride by body weight as adults and “the sheer number of potentially harmed citizens — persons with dental fluorosis, kidney patients tipped into needing dialysis, diabetics, thyroid patients, etc — numbers in the millions.”

 

The CDC is obviously acting against the health of the American people. But the threat to the lives of the American people posed by the CDC’s behavior does not stop there. It participated in designed pandemic laws that are on the books in every state in the US, which arrange for the government to use military to force unknown, untested vaccines, drugs, chemicals, and “medical” treatments on the entire country if it declares a pandemic emergency.

 

The CDC’s credibility in declaring such a pandemic emergency is non-existent, again based on Freedom of Information Act. For in 2009, after the CDC had declared the H1N1 “pandemic,” the CDC refused to respond to Freedom of Information Act filed by CBS News and the CDC also attempted to block their investigation. What the CDC was hiding was its part in one of the largest medical scandals in history, putting out wildly exaggerated data on what it claimed were H1N1 cases, and by doing so, created the false impression of a “pandemic” in the US.

 

The CDC was also covering up e financial scandal to rival the bailout since the vaccines for the false pandemic cost the US billions. And worse, the CDC put pregnant women first in line for an untested vaccine with a sterilizing agent, polysorbate 80, in it. Thanks to the CDC, “the number of vaccine-related “fetal demise” reports increased by 2,440 percent in 2009 compared to previous years, which is even more shocking than the miscarriage statistic [700% increase].

 

The exposure of the vaccine hoax is running neck and neck with the much older hoax of a deadly 1918-19 flu. It was aspirin that killed people in 1918-19, not a pandemic flu. It was the greatest industrial catastrophe in human history with 20-50 million people dying but it was blamed on a flu. The beginning of the drug industry began with that success (and Monsanto was part of it). The flu myth was used by George Bush to threaten the world with “another pandemic flu that could kill millions” – a terror tactic to get pandemic laws on the books in every state and worldwide. Then the CDC used hoax of the pandemic hoax to create terror over H1N1 and to push deadly vaccines on the public, killing thousands of unborn children and others. (CDC will not release the data and continues to push the same vaccine.)

 

The hoax of the vaccine schedule is over, exposed by FOIAs in the UK.

 

The hoax of the CDC’s interest in children’s lives has been exposed by its refusal to respond to a doctor’s FOIAs around its knowledge of vaccine dangers.

 

The 1918-19 pandemic hoax has been exposed by Dr. Karen Starko’s work on aspirin’s role in killing people.

 

And despite refusing to respond to FOIAS, the CDC’s scandalous hoax of a 2009 flu pandemic and its part in creating it, was exposed by CBS NEWS.

 

And the Obama administration, in attempting to salvage the last vestige of secrecy around what is really happening with vaccines, by declaring agency documents non-existent, has made its claim of transparency, non-existent. But pandemic laws arranging for unknown vaccines to be forced on the entire country are still in place with HHS creating a vaccine mixture that should never be used on anyone and all liability for vaccines having been removed. Meanwhile, a Canadian study has just proven that the flu vaccine containing the H1N1 vaccine which kills babies in utero, actually increases the risk of serious pandemic flu.

 

Americans who have been duped into submitting their children to the CDC’s deadly vaccines, have a means to respond now. People from every walk of life and every organization, must

1. take the information from the UK FOIAs exposing 30 years of vaccine lies, the refusal of the CDC to provide any information on what it knows about those lies, and the Obama Administration’s efforts to hide the CDC’s awareness of those lies, and go to their state legislatures, demand the immediate nullification of the CDC vaccine schedule and the pandemic laws.

2. inform every vet. active duty military person, law enforcement people, DHS agents and medical personnel they know, of the vaccine hoax, for their families are deeply threatened, too, but they may not be aware of it or that they have been folded into agency structures by the pharmaceutical industry (indistinguishable from the bankers and oil companies) that would make them agents of death for their country with the declaration of a “pandemic” emergency or “bio-terrorist” attack. It is completely clear now that the terrorism/bioterrorism structures are scams so that any actions taken to “protect” this country using those laws would in fact be what threatens the existence of Americans.

 

It was aspirin that killed millions in 1918-19. Now it is mandated and unknown, untested vaccines with banned adjuvants in them that threaten the country with millions of deaths. At the same time, the CDC is holding 500,000 mega-coffins, built to be incinerated, on its property outside Atlanta. Not to put too fine a point on this, but it’s clear now that the CDC should not be involved in any way with public health.

 

Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we know that vaccines are not a miracle of modern medicine. Any medical or government authority which insists vaccines prevent diseases is either ignorant of government documents (and endless studies) revealing the exact opposite or of the CDC’s attempts to hide the truth about vaccines from the public, or means harm to the public.

 

Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we know the vaccine schedule is a hoax.

 

The health danger to American children and adults are vaccines.

 

Read the paper here for the full evidence to back up these conclusions in its 45 pages: The vaccination policy and the Code of Practice of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI): are they at odds? http://www.ecomed.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/3-tomljenovic.pdf

 

Injection of vaccine via unnatural routes can use up 70 percent of the immune system's resources, instead of the usual three to four percent with a wild variety disease. Because the body has no extra antibodies waiting to counter the vaccine, the immune system goes into overdrive to deal with the vaccination, leaching critical vitamins away from bones and organs for the production of more antibodies. The resulting lack of vitamins can cause fractures, bruising and retinal bleeding and hemorrhaging, sometimes leading to an incorrectly diagnosed 'shaken baby syndrome' case.



Not only do vaccines weaken the immune system, but the body's massive surge of antibodies to deal with the additives in vaccines can also cause increased allergies and auto-immune diseases. The adrenals, pancreas, pituitary gland, thymus and the spleen also become over-stimulated, leaving the body unable to regulate itself, which has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, asthma and bronchitis, decrease in circulation of blood throughout the body, and atrophying of vascular vessels - to name a few.

 

Infant’s body atrophies after getting BCG vaccine [against tuberculosis], CDC says it is a case study

 

At the [Zhejiang Province] Anji County’s Dipu town clinic, lying in his mother’s arms, Little Ruirui opens his eyes, an IV drip hanging from his foot. He couldn’t possibly know what disease he has contracted, and all he feels is suffering.

7-month old Little Ruirui has already received several months of treatment at Hangzhou, Shanghai, and other places, but because his family couldn’t afford the expensive treatment costs, on May 5th, he has once again returned to Dipu. Now, he has lost his hair, his muscles loose, his head and body even shedding layers and layers of skin.

The Shanghai city Public Health Clinical Center diagnosed him with acute bronchial pneumonia, septicemia, pulmonary infection, disseminated BCG [tuberculosis] disease, hyper-IgE syndrome, and a zero-chance of curing him. A life that hasn’t yet begun has already entered its final moments...

 

 

You have to be unconscious, brainwashed or just plain stupid to allow this into your or your child's body. The majority of flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury, an amount considered unsafe by the EPA for anyone weighing less than 550 pounds. Now then, take the two-shot recommendation and you receive 50 micrograms of toxic mercury. But Big Pharma money talks louder than dead babies, so go ahead, get your toxic flu shot.

 

Local health departments all across the country are holding new drive-thru flu shot clinics as part of a nationwide “emergency preparedness drill” to see how quickly and efficiently large numbers of people can be vaccinated. Individuals are being encouraged to bring their family and friends along for the ride as they roll down their windows to get the free jabs, while officials monitor and track how rapidly the public can be processed through these various vaccine lines. This is being described as a test run for future forced vaccinations of large numbers of people, is taking place in Connecticut, Alabama, Georgia, California, Kansas, Virginia, Arizona, and many other states. And in some locations, administrators will actually be onsite timing with a stopwatch the rate at which vaccine providers are able to process people through the vaccine lines, all for the purpose of assessing whether or not such a feat might be possible on a much larger scale. But, flu vaccines, take roughly two weeks after being injected to even begin working, which makes the idea of rushing thousands or even millions of people through a vaccine processing line to avert a flu pandemic or other emergency scientifically ridiculous.

 

The U.S. government can't even agree among its own agencies about toxic mercury-based thimerosal used in vaccines. The Institute of Medicine advises that mercury-containing vaccines should not be injected into pregnant women, infants and children because of thimerosal's harmful effects on the immune, metabolic and nervous systems which has been widely documented.Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, and Sanofi-Pasteur, all three vaccine-makers of these Big Pharmas are currently using thimerosal in their products.

 

Pure thimerosal is toxic at the low nanomolar level—an extremely low concentration, about 10,000 times less than the thimerosal concentration found in most vaccines. These results leave little doubt about thimerosal being the toxic agent in the vaccines. -- Dr. J. Curtis Pendergrass

 

Mercury levels have been lowered in some infant vaccines but according to Dr. Boyd Haley of the University of Kentucky, mercury is still present in all child vaccines. Two groups are most vulnerable to methyl mercury: the fetus and children ages 14 and younger. Vaccinated children have three times the risk of hospitalization compared to unvaccinated children along with a significantly higher risk for hospitalized-vaccinated asthmatics. Children who get the flu vaccine are more at risk for hospitalization than ones who do not get the vaccine, according to research presented at the 105th International Conference of the American Thoracic Society in San Diego.

 

If you had your flu shot last year, you are twice as likely to contract swine flu this year. Pandemrix caused a 17-fold increase in narcolepsy among flu-vaccinated children. People at 55 years of age who receive the flu vaccine each year for five years in a row, increase their risk of developing Alzheimer's disease a whopping 1,000 percent. Flu vaccines do nothing in 98.5 percent of adults but do cause neurological disorders in 7.5 percent of vaccinated people. There is no proof that flu vaccines drop the level of flu occurrence but there is proof that they cause side effects and harm, but the choice is still yours. Make an informed one.

 

It was the Rockefeller Foundation that funded and developed vaccines designed to reduce your fertility, and intended to distribute these vaccines on a mass-scale. The focus has now drifted away from the thoroughly debunked global warming myth to poverty-reduction. As usually is the case, once the pretext is sold to the unsuspecting, the eugenicists move in to “reduce fertility.” Disease and poverty, intertwined as they are, can therefore be eliminated by mas-scale fertility reduction. The religion of the scientific dictatorship in a nutshell.

 

On October 2nd, 2012, a retired demographer at the World Bank admitted that vaccination campaigns are an integral part of the World Bank’s population policies. John F. May, the Bank’s leading demographer from 1992 to 2012, told the French web journal Sens Public that vaccination campaigns, especially in so-called “high-fertility countries,” are means to achieve population reduction in those countries. May: “The means used to implement population policies are “policy levers” or targeted actions such as vaccination campaigns or family planning to change certain key variables.”

 

Defining “population policy” as “a set of interventions implemented by government officials to better manage demographic variables and to try to attune population changes (number, structure by age and breakdown) to the country’s development aspirations”, May continues to explain that the World Bank is taking up the lead role in achieving general population reduction.

 

It is not the first time that World Bank officials boast about their willingness to implement strict population control policies in the Third World. In its 1984 World Development Report, the World Bank suggests using “sterilization vans” and “camps” to facilitate its sterilization policies for the third world. The report also threatens nations who are slow in implementing the bank’s population policies with “drastic steps, less compatible with individual choice and freedom.”

 

“Population policy has a long lead time; other development policies must adapt in the meantime. Inaction today forecloses options tomorrow, in overall development strategy and in future population policy. Worst of all, inaction today could mean that more drastic steps, less compatible with individual choice and freedom, will seem necessary tomorrow to slow population growth,” the report states. Some of those steps are now being taken.

 

The World Health Organization, the World Bank, The UN environmental department, the UN Population Fund, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and all the other arms of the creature we call the scientific dictatorship are closing in on all of humanity with mass-scale vaccination programs and genetically engineered food.

 

Where the mantra used to be “to combat global warming, we need a one world government,” now it sounds something along the lines of “when we wish to eradicate poverty, we must have a global government and reduce human numbers, by the way.” Any pretext will do. More recently it were oceans in need that prompted the World Bank to initiate a global “alliance.” The same argument can of course be applied and is being applied to every other possible calamity.

 

Following this line of reasoning will inevitably bring you to pretexts under which global population control can be sold. Want to reduce victims of drunk driving? Reduce human numbers. Looking to cure cancer? Reduce the birthrate so less people will die as a result of it. The scientific community has joined the effort, attempting to sell population reduction to stop poverty and disease worldwide.

 

Under the guidance of Ban Ki-moon’s top advisor, Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, several studies have been published which call for mass population reduction in the name of poverty-reduction. If you eradicate the human, you eradicate the disease- problem solved.

 

 

 

 

The US childhood immunization schedule now recommends that all infants receive 26 vaccine doses before they even reach the age of one.

 

The Arizona Department of Health Services wants to remind parents to inject their newborn babies with neurologically-damaging chemical adjuvants found in vaccines, and to aid in this effort, they've teamed up with Hallmark, the famous greeting card company. Hallmark has designed and provided a special "vaccine shot tracking" card -- an "Immunization Record" -- encouraging "death for America's babies." That's what these vaccines often cause, of course: Death, seizures, neurological damage, autism, fevers, vomiting and much more. Hallmark is a greeting card company that usually churns out feel-good blessings and warm fuzzy limericks but now is openly advocating chemicals that kill babies.

 

Gullible people who inject their own children with toxic vaccines come from all races and nationalities. The real agenda of pushing vaccines to new moms in Arizona is an effort to promote widespread infertility across the Latino population of Arizona. That's what vaccines do best -- induce infertility in both men and women. These vaccines create a trans-generational sterilization burden that increases with each successive generation until it brings newborns to the point of genetic extinction. They figure you can't just force all the Latinos to be sterilized by injection. So instead, you have to trick them into sterilizing their own little children. Nothing halts the family tree as quickly as a few rounds of voluntary vaccine shots for Mom and daughter. Even if the shots don't kill 'em, the child will have a weakened immune system which translates into a lifetime of Big Pharma revenue from sickness and disease.

 

Continuing the propaganda push, the AZ Department of Health Services includes yet another piece of printed propaganda, claiming that everyone around your baby must also get vaccinated with multiple vaccine shots. So now you're supposed to push every member of the family to go get vaccinated for the benefit of the baby! It's sort of like a viral form of socially-enforced sterilization, brought to you by the wonderful people at the state of Arizona and Hallmark, headquartered in Kansas City. Hallmark is also conspiring with Colorado officials to push vaccine shot compliance cards onto new moms across that state, too. It's yet another example of shameful corporate behavior that betrays the trust of the people while serving the selfish interests of the State.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New Study: Vaccinated Children Have 2 to 5 Times More Diseases and Disorders Than Unvaccinated Children

A German study released in September 2011 of about 8000 UNVACCINATED children, newborn to 19 years, show vaccinated children have at least 2 to 5 times more diseases and disorders than unvaccinated children. The results are presented in the complete data and study results here. The data is compared to the national German KIGGS health study of the children in the general population. Most of the respondents to the survey were from the U.S.

 

No study of health outcomes of vaccinated people versus unvaccinated has ever been conducted in the U.S. by CDC or any other agency in the 50 years or more of an accelerating schedule of vaccinations (now over 50 doses of 14 vaccines given before kindergarten, 26 doses in the first year). Most data collected by CDC is contained in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database. The VAERS is generally thought to contain only 3 to 5 percent of reportable incidents. This is simply because only some immediate reactions are reported by doctors; but many are not admitted to be reactions to the vaccine. Most importantly, the VAERS numbers are only immediate reactions, which I would place with a few hours to a few weeks. Long-term vaccine-induced diseases and disorders are not recognized by parents or doctors when these conditions develop perhaps a few months to five years or more and would never be realized to come from multiple vaccinations. In other words, many children and adults have diseases and disorders that are vaccine-induced and they never suspect they are from the vaccines, as this study indicates.

 

Since the first mandatory vaccination law was passed in the U.S. (1903), the belief in vaccination has been promoted by a pro-vaccine government, a pro-vaccine school system and a pro-vaccine western allopathic medicine industry.

The Vaccine Responsible for Half the Awards for Injury and Death

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama administration officials are debating whether or not a study should be launched which would lead to injecting healthy children with the anthrax vaccine in an experiment to “see whether the shots would safely protect them against a bioterrorism attack.”

Government officials are now calling for your children to be injected with the anthrax vaccine in order to ‘protect’ against bioterrorism. Of course the safety of the anthrax vaccine has been questioned in the past by health professionals and the former Senate Majority Leader — also a physician. That is why the Obama administration is using the threat of bioterrorism as a method of getting the public to submit to the study through fear. The administration had mainstream health officials touting the vaccine as a way to ‘protect’ the children from the threat of bioterrorism. Evidence shows the anthrax vaccine is actually quite dangerous — not ‘protective’ as the Obama administration officials make it out to be. There are very real and potentially serious side effects from the vaccine and anyone who elects to receive the vaccine needs to be made aware of that. There are too many side effects and if there is limited chance of exposure- the side effects would far outweigh any potential advantage. Serious adverse events include: death, hospitalization, permanent disability, or are life-threatening.

 

 

 

Former drug company scientist Helen Ratajczak recently created a firestorm of debate from all sides of the vaccine-autism issue when she published her comprehensive review of autism research. However, her 79-page review contains one detail that could easily go unnoticed—five words that reveal one of the most shocking secrets Big Pharma has ever kept from you. "…Grown in human fetal tissue."

The line reads (page 70):

"An additional increased spike in incidence of autism occurred in 1995 when the chicken pox vaccine was grown in human fetal tissue."

 

If you are struggling to recall how you could have missed this important fact when signing your vaccine consent form, it wasn't your error—because it wasn't disclosed on any consent form. Most people are unaware that human cell cultures derived from aborted human fetuses have been used extensively in vaccine production for decades. And vaccine makers are happy that most of the public has remained ignorant of this fact, as awareness of it could blow up in their faces.

 

Setting aside, for the moment, unknown long-term health consequences of DNA contamination and religious beliefs about use of aborted fetal tissues—the ethics of nondisclosure are reprehensible. Drug companies and vaccine policy-makers should not be allowed to decide whether or not to share this information with you. This is information you should have received PRIOR to making a choice about whether or not to vaccinate.

 

Chicken pox vaccine is not the only vaccine manufactured in this way. According to Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SCPI), the following 24 vaccines are produced using cells from aborted fetuses and/or contain DNA, proteins, or related cellular debris from cell cultures derived from aborted human fetuses:

 
Polio PolioVax, Pentacel, DT Polio Absorbed, Quadracel (Sanofi)
Measles, Mumps, Rubella MMR II, Meruvax II, MRVax, Biovax, ProQuad, MMR-V (Merck)
Priorix, Erolalix (GlaxoSmithKline)
Varicella (Chickenpox and Shingles) Varivax, ProQuad, MMR-V, Zostavax (Merck)
Varilix (GlaxoSmithKline)
Hepatitis A Vaqta (Merck)
Havrix, Twinrix (GlaxoSmithKine)
Avaxim, Vivaxim (Sanofi)
Epaxal (Crucell/Berna)
Rabies Imovax (Sanofi)

 

If you were informed that mercury in vaccines might double the risk of your son developing motor tics, increase his risk of "phonic tics" by nearly two-and-a-half times, and possibly cause speech, attention or behavioral problems in school, would you still allow him to be injected with the heavy metal -- which, by the way, is 100 times more neurotoxic than that lead coating on his Chinese toys? And what if your government's most trusted public health agency, the CDC, announced it had funded a study that replicated the findings of a 2003 CDC analysis, which also detected an association between vaccine mercury and tics, and that researchers were now suggesting "the potential need for further studies" between thimerosal and the neurological disorder? And what if the investigators also said they detected a small but statistically significant association between early thimerosal exposure and impaired "behavioral regulation" in boys?

 

Or what if they said that increased neonatal exposure (28 weeks or younger) was associated with "significantly lower scores in verbal IQ scores in girls," and "significantly poorer performance" in articulation tests among all children? And what if the authors further noted that speech problems were also found in the 2003 CDC study, where they said thimerosal exposure was associated with "an increased risk of language delays" at one test site?

 

Finally, what if those same authors claimed that their findings "suggest a possible adverse association between neonatal exposure to mercury and language development?"

 

An 8 pound baby injected with the hepatitis B vaccine at birth is exposed to 35 times the EPA daily safety level for mercury, (calculated by bodyweight) while a 4 pound infant is slammed with 70 times the EPA level.

 

Boys who received the highest amounts of thimerosal in the first seven months of life are determined by evaluators to be 2.19 times more likely to have motor tics at age 7-10 years, and 2.44 times more likely to have phonic tics, than boys with the lowest exposures. Any relative risk between exposure and outcome that exceeds 2.0, incidentally, is considered to be proof of causation in US courts of law.

 

The Encyclopedia of Mental Disorders defines "simple" motor tics as "brief, meaningless movements like eye blinking, facial grimacing, head jerks or shoulder shrugs," that usually last less than a second. It says that "complex" motor tics cause slower, longer, more intense movements, "like sustained looks, facial gestures, biting, banging, whirling or twisting around, or copropraxia (obscene gestures)."

 

On the phonic side, "simple" tics are called, "meaningless sounds or noises like throat clearing, coughing, sniffling, barking, or hissing." Complex phonic tics include, "syllables, words, phrases, and such statements as 'Shut up!' or 'Now you've done it!' The child's speech may be abnormal, with unusual rhythms, tones, accents or intensities." There is also the "echo phenomenon," (so familiar to autism parents) characterized by "the immediate repetition of one's own or another's words." Coprolalia, meanwhile, is a tic "made up of obscene, inappropriate or aggressive words and statements." Severe behavioral problems are sometimes associated with tics, as well, and "there is some evidence that temper tantrums, aggressiveness, and explosive behavior appear in preadolescence and intensify in adolescence."

 

Finally, many children with both phonic and motor tics are diagnosed with Tourette's disorder, which frequently causes "aggressiveness, self-harming behaviors, emotional immaturity, social withdrawal, physical complaints, conduct disorders, affective disorders, anxiety, panic attacks, stuttering, sleep disorders, migraine headaches, and inappropriate sexual behaviors," the Encyclopedia says. (Interestingly, Tourette's disorder is three-to-four times more common in males than females, the same ratio as autism, ADD and ADHD).

 

Now, if "simple" tics include head jerks and barking; and "complex" tics can entail biting, banging and screaming obscenities; and if thimerosal can more than double the chance of tics in boys; then Atlanta, we have a very big problem. It's perplexing that the CDC can report replicating a doubled risk for tics in boys, and an increased risk for speech disorders and attention and behavior problems in other kids, and still insist that this is all "very reassuring news."

 

 

We believe vaccines are the greatest contribution to public health because we believe they prevent the spread of infectious disease; we believe vaccines eradicated smallpox and polio in the western world.   We have been so thoroughly conditioned to believe that vaccines work we have never questioned how, or IF, they really do work.

 

Polio Redesignated

We are told that polio has been 'beaten' in most countries by a vaccine when all they have done is given the symptoms other names. Staggering, yes, but true.

 

All these scams and others caused the official figures for polio to fall dramatically and the credit was given to the vaccine when, in truth, cases of infantile paralysis were actually growing rapidly - doubling between 1957 and 1959.

 

Dr Bernard Greenberg, head of the Department of Biostatistics at the University of North Carolina, told a Congressional hearing in 1962 that infantile paralysis cases had increased after the introduction of the vaccine by 50 per cent from 1957 to 1958, and by 80 per cent from 1958 to 1959.

 

Infantile paralysis is today known as Acute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) and while America has been declared 'polio free' many thousands every year contract Acute Flaccid Paralysis - polio under another name.

 

Also there are thousands of cases a year in the United States of Guillian-Barré syndrome (re-designated polio) and the same with aseptic meningitis (re-designated polio). Then there are the thousands in America alone every year who contract a condition known as West Nile Fever which can cause a polio-like syndrome with paralysis and impaired breathing.

 

The pre-1957 definition of polio would today be recording many more cases than were seen during the epidemics of the 1950s which were supposed to have been eradicated by a vaccine that doesn't work, not least because polio is not caused by a virus - it is caused by pesticides and other toxins.

Under the guise of public health, genocidal agendas are being facilitated all over the world, often at gunpoint, through the mass and mandated delivery of vaccines, toxic chemical pesticides, herbicides, pharmaceutical drugs, fluoride, mercury, processed foods and contaminated water.

 

Two-hundred years of historical evidence and published medical literature support the following theses:

1. Vaccines cause, rather than prevent the spread of disease.

2. Vaccines prepare the body for infertility, chronic illness, behavioral/neurological disorders and/or sudden death.

 

Regardless that the first mass vaccination program, using Edward Jenner's smallpox vaccine in England, was officially declared a public health disaster by a Royal commission in 1896, the vaccine myth has survived. Today there are vaccines for many diseases and they contain the most toxic substances on earth. Among them are ethyl mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, live and dead viruses cultured in animal tissue and aborted human fetal tissue, phenols, monosodium glutamate, aspartame and ammonium sulfate. It is not uncommon for children to receive several vaccines in one day. It is, therefore, not uncommon for them to have injected into their bodies up to 60 times the safe allowable limit of mercury-the most toxic non-radioactive substance known to man.

 

If the public were fully informed of all the ingredients that go into flu shots, there would be a mass outrage against them. Unfortunately, your doctor will not tell you anything about this. The news media will not report the truth about these contaminants. The Centers for Disease Control is concealing data. Pharmaceutical companies don't properly warn consumers. Mass retailers pushing the shots don't care even after being warned about the potential dangers of administering vaccines. Churches across America think they are doing a service for the Lord by telling their congregants to go out and get a shot and have their churches being used as distribution outlets.

 

The theory is that small amounts of disease matter introduced into the body will enter the blood, creating antibodies that prevent the proliferation of the disease's wild form, thus preventing one from contracting the disease against which he has been vaccinated; this process allegedly creates an artificial immunity to the disease.

 

 

 

Parents deserve more from their pediatricians and doctors who they entrust with their children's lives, than denials, hostility and disrespect. They deserve to have their questions about vaccination answered honestly, their concerns about vaccine risks taken seriously, and their children treated with the same compassion that doctors would treat their own children. They expect that their doctor / pediatrician would at least explore the possibility that vaccine(s) played a role when their children regress after vaccination into poor health, autism, learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, epilepsy, asthma, diabetes, arthritus, intestinal bowel disorders and many other kinds of brain and immune system dysfunction.

 

When one develops a holistic understanding of how body systems work in concert to prevent toxic materials from entering the bloodstream, it becomes obvious that the antibody theory of disease prevention is absurd. Even the CDC recognizes that the presence of disease antibodies, the creation of which comprise the entire justification for vaccines, does not necessarily result in immunity from the disease. The toxic materials of vaccines forever circulating in our bodies, coupled with malnutrition, dehydration, constant exposure to other toxins and/or stress, create the bodily environment conducive to the development of neuroses, cancer, asthma, AIDS, multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases currently epidemic in the world.

 

Health authorities credit vaccines for disease declines, and assure us of their safety and effectiveness. Yet these seemingly rock-solid assumptions are directly contradicted by government statistics, medical studies, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports, and reputable research scientists from around the world. In fact, infectious diseases declined steadily for decades prior to vaccinations, U.S. doctors report thousands of serious vaccine reactions each year including hundreds of deaths and permanent disabilities, fully vaccinated populations have experienced epidemics, and researchers attribute dozens of chronic immunological and neurological conditions to mass immunization programs. Documented safe and effective alternatives to vaccination have been available for decades but suppressed by the medical and pharmaceutical establishments.

 

Repeatedly, you hear of people getting the flu after getting a shot while those who didn’t get a shot didn’t "get the flu." Some say the reason the folks who "caught the flu" after getting the shots is because their immune system was too weak to respond properly or the vaccine was not designed to work against the strain of flu going around that year.

 

There are so many strains of constantly mutating viruses and bacteria. And now—thanks to sorcerer’s apprentices playing gods with DNA, bacteriological warfare experiments, genetically modified cross species vectors etc.—guessing which virus or viruses will strike in any season is akin to guessing the outcome of the lottery.

 

Another deception perpetuated by the vaccine cartel is that the flu shot contains inactive or dead viruses. If these viruses were completely inactive, then the shot would never stimulate an immune response. The flu shot contains "attenuated" virus. Attenuated means half-killed. The infectious agent is weakened so that it is just below the threshold of being able to trigger an inflammatory response in 99% of people. By allowing the implantation of an attenuated virus or bacteria into the body, we have done something nature would never permit. We have violated the sanctity of the bloodstream. We have tricked the immune system into not mounting an all-out response to a foreign agent. If the vaccine's microorganisms were not attenuated, the powers of the natural immune system would join together to repel and attack the invader.

 

Theoretically if the entire virus is killed it shouldn’t infect you when the nurse injects it into your body. How do scientists attempt to kill the virus? They mix it with formaldehyde, a dangerous carcinogen, and other poisons, such as ethylene glycol (antifreeze), a kidney destroyer. Formaldehyde is classified as a toxic, colorless, water-soluble gas, which has a suffocating odor. It's used predominantly in embalming fluid and vaccines as a disinfectant and preservative.

 

Because scientists breed bacteria and virus strains in such nasty things as rotten eggs, sheep guts, monkey brains and fetal diploid tissue (minced aborted babies), they have to preserve it. The cheapest way is thimerosal, a mercury derivative that is a highly toxic heavy metal that attacks every organ and system in your body. Mercury is strongly implicated in Alzheimer’s disease and the epidemic of autism in vaccinated children. To make thimerosal, scientists start with elemental mercury. Then, they hop it up 1,000 times by converting it to ethyl mercury. Then, they add aluminum to the the vaccine that has a synergistic effect with the mercury, causing it to be 10,000 times more toxic than elemental mercury. Mercury is used to sterilize the flu vaccine. Consider this insanity: Researchers tell us that it's unsafe to touch or swallow the mercury from a broken thermometer yet it's perfectly acceptable to inject the same poison directly into your body through a vaccine. How is the human body supposed to build immunity by being exposed to neuro-toxic poisons like mercury and formaldehyde? Don't worry. Your doctor knows what's best for you!

 

Dr. Leonard Horowitz uncovered documents proving that the disease we know as AIDS was developed for the U.S. military by its chemical and biological weapons contractors. The disease was intentionally delivered (free of charge) to the world in the late 70s. Hundreds of thousands of Africans were infected with AIDS through contaminated smallpox vaccine; contaminated hepatitis B vaccine was given (again, free of charge) to gays and drug addicts in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

 

The World Health Organization estimates that by 2020, AIDS will have killed 28.5 million Africans-a number greater than all the deaths from all wars in the last 100 years. It is estimated that 40 million people in the world are currently living with AIDS and numbers of new infections are on the rise.

 

 

The percentage of an element found in a compound is based on the % weight the element gives to the total weight of the compound. The sodium salt of thimerosal contains the following elements:

 

atom #atoms atomic weight total weight
Hg 1 200.59 200.59
C 9 12 108
S 1 32 32
O 2 16 32
H 9 1.0 9
Na 1 23 23

 

 

The above gives a formula weight for the sodium salt of thimerosal of 404.59, and mercury contributes 200.59. Dividing 200.49 by 404.59 = 0.4959 and converting to % this equals 49.59%. Therefore, mercury is 49.59% of the weight of thimerosal as determined using conventional chemical calculations.

 

The toxicity of mercury from ingestion, i.e. that level set by the EPA in the USA is 0.1 microgram Hg per kilogram body weight per day based on ingestion of methylmercury from a fish diet. Notice that the level of mercury is presented in a fraction of grams. Therefore, to determine the toxicity of mercury in thimerosal or ethylmercury you have to determine the amount of mercury in fractions of grams. This is the way that all toxicologists do this. The amount of mercury by weight in the vaccines would make it safe by EPA standards if the subject getting the shot weighed 125 kilograms or 275 lbs.

 

Thimerosal is known to rapidly release ethylmercury in aqueous systems. Ethylmercury is extremely neurotoxic, killing neurons at 10-25 nanomolar levels. A vaccine is 125,000 nanomolar in thimerosal and injecting one vaccine (12.5 micrograms) into one 4-6 lb infant would represent a very toxic exposure. Unlike many elements (N,O,C, etc.) Hg has no known usefulness in biological systems, being toxic to them all. Also, all occurring forms of Hg (methylmercury, ethylmercury, thimerosal dental amalgams, Hg vapor, Hg2+, etc.) have been reported to be extremely toxic.

 

To give this concoction a kick they add a dose of aluminum, another poisonous metal also strongly correlated with Alzheimer’s made many times worse when associated with mercury and fluoride. To this witches’ brew, they have to add antibiotics to keep the bacteria from growing. In 2004, the antibiotics didn’t work, so over 46 million vaccines were recalled due to bacterial contamination.

 

If flu vaccines infect people with weaker immune systems, why does the government say the elderly and babies should go to the head of the line? People who believe in conspiracies might say killing off the elderly will stave off the bankruptcy of Social Security; and killing off the babies who survive the abortion mills will make it easier to replace Americans with cheap foreign workers. If you don’t get the flu shot, you won’t necessarily come down with the flu. Whether you become ill depends on how strong your immune system is. So you might say that it’s not a virus that gives you the flu; a weak immune system is what gives you the flu. The key is immunity.

 

Vaccines caused substantial increases in polio after years of steady declines, and they are the sole cause of polio in the U.S. today. The long term adverse effects of vaccinations have been virtually ignored, in spite of direct correlations with many chronic conditions. There are hundreds of published medical studies documenting vaccine failure and adverse effects, and dozens of books written by doctors, researchers, and independent investigators that reveal serious flaws in immunization theory and practice. Ironically, most pediatricians and parents are completely unaware of these findings. However, this has begun to change in recent years, as a growing number of parents and healthcare providers around the world are becoming aware of the problems and starting to question the use of widespread, mandatory vaccinations.

 

The medical literature has a surprising number of studies documenting vaccine failure. Measles, mumps, small pox, polio and Hib outbreaks have all occurred in vaccinated populations. In 1989 the CDC reported: "Among school-aged children, measles outbreaks have occurred in schools with vaccination levels of greater than 98 percent. They have occurred in all parts of the country, including areas that had not reported measles for years." The CDC even reported a measles outbreak in a documented 100 percent vaccinated population.

 

If vaccinations really work, those vaccinated will be immune to the disease, so what does it matter if some people choose to go unvaccinated? What do the vaccinated have to worry about? Aren't they protected? Shouldn't people have the choice whether or not to have their children vaccinated--a choice based on full disclosure of risks and benefits?

 

As we mature and age, the immune foundation we develop during our first years of life will remain vitally important. At birth, certain immune defense mechanisms are already in place. Substances secreted in the skin and mucous membranes serve as the first line of defense, and white blood cells that destroy foreign agents by engulfing them (phagocytosis) and other functions are a second line of defense. Although newborns aren't able to produce all the antibodies and other immune defenses they will need, they are already capable of recognizing more than a million different identifying characteristics of foreign substances, or antigens. Infants who are breast-fed receive maternal antibodies and immune-cell stimulating substances from breast milk. For the first few months of life, these maternal antibodies can provide passive immunity against many specific infections.

 

During the first year of life, babies develop their own antibodies. Other immune defenses also continue to develop as body cells mature and as the child is exposed to numerous bacteria, yeast and fungi in the environment, which stimulate long-term or even life-long immune-cell memory. The subsequent resistance to a specific antigen is called natural immunity. By contrast, artificial immunity--as conferred by vaccination against disease such as polio and pertussis--is quite different. Vaccinated immunity relies only on antibody response to inoculation with specific antigen strains. But there are intrinsic problems with vaccination theory.

 

The immune system is not a one-truck fire station: Antibodies aren't the only way to snuff out invading agents. There are many, many immune defense mechanisms (including biological response modifiers such as interferon, produced by white blood cells) and different biochemical messengers (including hormones and neurotransmitters). All are involved in maintaining strong natural immunity. A larger problem with vaccination, however, is that it appears to have an adverse effect on immune function. In the case of childhood vaccination, it is thought that current vaccines cause serious defects in immune development and function.

 

While the assumption has always been that we can have both vaccinated immunity and a healthy immune system, this is apparently untrue. When an immune system, especially a developing one, is bombarded with "inactivated" antigens suspended in solutions of toxic additives, contaminants and solvents, immune function can become impaired. We're programmed to think of immunization and vaccination as synonyms. That's no accident. It cost plenty to make us think they're the same. The word "immunization" instead of "vaccination" is now pervasive in both medical and mainstream literature, creating a semantic reality that cannot be supported by evidence. There's a big difference between the two. Immunization means to make someone immune to something. Vaccination, by contrast, according to Dorland's Medical Dictionary, just means to inject "a suspension of attenuated or killed microorganisms, administered for prevention, or treatment of infectious disease." Vaccination does not guarantee immunity.

 

Natural immunity happens only after one recovers from the actual disease. During the disease, the foreign substance usually has to pass through many of the body's natural immune defense systems--in the nose, throat lungs, digestive tract and lymph tissue--before it reaches the bloodstream. As it does, the substance triggers many biological events that are essential in building true natural immunity. When a child gets a new immune challenge, he may feel sick for several days, but, in the vast majority of cases, he will recover.

 

Millions of children are partaking in an enormous, crude experiment; and no sincere, organized effort is being made by the medical community to track the negative side effects or determine the long-term consequences. Vaccination history is riddled with documented instances of deceit designed to portray vaccines as mighty disease conquerors, when many times they have actually delayed and even reversed disease declines. There is no evidence whatsoever of the ability of vaccines to prevent any diseases. To the contrary, there is a great wealth of evidence that they cause serious side effects. Doctors cannot warn you about what they themselves do not know, and with little time for further education once they begin practice, they are in a sense held captive by a system which discourages them from acquiring information independently and forming their own opinions. As medical students, few doctors have reason to question the information taught.

 

The first vaccines by Pasteur and Koch, and also most modern ones, were and are made up of experimental proteins from rotting, diseased samples of animal tissue (cows, sheep, monkeys and horses) carrying some "weakened" infectious agent. Others are toxic by-products of microorganisms that are neutralized by formaldehyde and aluminum. Most vaccines have components called adjuvants, or helpers. These include human blood and formaldehyde, a carcinogenic liquid, used for embalming. Mercury is used as an adjuvant; it is added in the form of thimerosal, a preservative. It can cause nerve damage, autoimmune disorders and cancer. Another adjuvant, aluminum, is a proven neurotoxin, positively associated with a number of disorders. The thinking behind vaccination is that if the person gets a "minor" case of the disease under the "controlled" conditions of vaccination, he will produce his own antibodies to the disease agent, and this will confer immunity because his immune system will remember what the "bad bug" looks like. The next time the bug shows up, immune defense cells will be ready to kill it. But there is no general agreement that this truly happens as a result of vaccination. Ironically, medicine is a field that demands conformity; there is little tolerance for opinions opposing the status quo.

 

Those few who dare to question the status quo are frequently ostracized, and in any case they are still legally bound to adhere to the system's legal mandates. Unless parents sign exemption forms, children must be vaccinated before they can get into school. This is the law, and lobbying controls legislation. The second most powerful lobby in Washington is the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmaceutical companies are inventing new vaccines every year, all with the hope of their being included in the mandated vaccination schedule. It's very big money. And there are more vaccines on the back burner. Yet there are never long-term safety studies before vaccines get approved for mass use. There are also never any follow-up studies about long-term effectiveness of vaccines. This is why vaccines are always being altered and replaced--they cause negative side effects.

 

That is why, since 1986, the U.S. Federal Government's National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) has paid out over $1.2 billion in taxpayer dollars to parents of vaccine-injured and killed children. As of December 2000, 40 vaccinations are currently mandated for children in the American Pediatric Association's immunization (i.e. vaccination) schedule. The word mandated doesn't mean mandatory, but for all intents and purposes, it might as well. Seven of these are legally required for schoolchildren in nearly all fifty states. Vaccination is so accepted, is seen as so necessary by most people, that they don't even question it. If they do, the consequences can be ostracism or worse. The reactions to this multitude of shots are what can spell trouble for the infant. Children, by law, must be vaccinated against the five traditional childhood diseases of mumps, measles, rubella, diphtheria and pertussis, plus tetanus and polio.

 

Health authorities credit vaccines for disease declines, and assure us of their safety and effectiveness. Yet health statistics, medical studies, FDA and CDC reports, and reputable research scientists from around the world directly contradict these seemingly rock-solid assumptions. US doctors report thousands of serious vaccine reactions each year, including hundreds of deaths and permanent disabilities. Fully vaccinated populations have experienced epidemics, and researchers attribute dozens of chronic immunologic and neurologic conditions to mass immunization programs. There are hundreds of published medical studies documenting vaccine failure and adverse effects, and dozens of books written by doctors, researchers and independent investigators that reveal serious flaws in immunization theory and practice. Chances are you won't hear any information about vaccines from a pediatrician during a "well baby" visit. After all, an M.D. could be committing career suicide by taking a stand against vaccination. It's a $30 billion a year industry. Ironically, most pediatricians and parents are completely unaware of these findings. However, this has begun to change in recent years as a growing number of parents and healthcare providers around the world are becoming aware of the problems and are starting to question the use of widespread, mandatory vaccinations.

 

Unbelievably, not until recently was there a centralized U.S. record-keeping agency to which physicians could report vaccine reactions. It wasn't until 1991 that the CDC and FDA's VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System) was set up. It receives about 11,000 reports of serious adverse reactions to vaccination annually, some 1% (112+) of which are deaths from vaccine reactions. Some 33,000 reactions were reported between 1992 and 1996. Before then, it's anybody's guess how many reactions and deaths there were, because no agency was keeping track. Many of the adverse reactions to vaccination probably haven't even shown up yet. After all, someone may not get a disease as a result of a vaccine that contained atypical forms of a disease agent or other contaminants until years after vaccination. And for many vaccines, a 48-hour limit has been arbitrarily set for reporting a reaction.

If a baby dies 50 hours after a shot, that death is not reported as an adverse reaction. Doctors make the majority of these reports, and the majority of deaths are attributed to the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine--the "P in DPT. This figure alone is alarming, yet it is only the "tip of the iceberg." Pertussis toxin is used to create encephalitis in lab animals. The FDA estimates that only about 10% of adverse reactions are reported--a figure supported by two National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) investigations. In fact, the NVIC reported that, "In New York, only one out of 40 doctor's offices (2.5%) confirmed that they report a death or injury following vaccination"--so 97.5% of vaccine-related deaths and disabilities go unreported there. Doctors are legally required to report serious adverse events. These findings suggest that vaccine deaths actually occurring each year in the US may be well over 1,000.

 

With pertussis, the number of vaccine-related deaths dwarfs the number of disease deaths, which have been about 10 annually for recent years according to the CDC, and only eight in 1993, the last peak-incidence year. (Pertussis runs in three-to-four-year cycles) Simply put, the vaccine is 100 times more deadly than the disease. The vast majority of disease declines this century occurred before compulsory vaccinations. This enormous number of vaccine casualties can hardly be considered a necessary sacrifice for the benefit of a disease-free society. Before mass vaccination programs, the term Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) didn't exist. Now, at least 10,000 American babies mysteriously die each year with the catch-all SIDS diagnosis.

One study found the peak incidence of SIDS occurrs at the ages of two and four months in the US--precisely when the first two routine immunizations are given, while another found a clear pattern of correlation extending three weeks after immunization. Another study found that 3,000 children die within four days of vaccination each year in the US, while yet another researcher's studies led to the conclusion that half of SIDS cases--that would be 2,500 to 5,000 infant deaths in the US each year--are caused by vaccines.

 

In the mid-1970s the Japanese raised their vaccination age from two months to two years; their incidence of SIDS dropped dramatically. In spite of this, the US medical community has chosen a posture of denial. Coroners refuse to check the vaccination status of SIDS victims and unsuspecting families continue to pay the price, unaware of the dangers and denied the right to make a choice. Low adverse-event reporting also suggests that the total number of adverse reactions actually occurring in the US each year may be more than 100,000. Due to doctors' failure to report, no one knows how many of these are permanent disabilities, but statistics suggest that these are several times the number of deaths. One study showed 1 in 175 children who completed the full DPT series suffered severe reactions, and a doctor's report for attorneys which found that one in 300 DPT immunizations resulted in seizures. Some of the most frequent complications of vaccinations seem to be diseases of the central nervous system. It's easy to understand why, in the case of children. Their nervous systems are in the process of forming, and nerve tissue is sensitive to minute changes in its biological environment. The insulation around the nerves--the myelin--is not complete yet. The presence in the blood of a diseased vaccine protein, plus the toxins mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde can trigger processes that contribute to abnormal nerve growth. Harris Coulter, Ph.D., has chronicled a skyrocketing incidence of post-vaccination neurological disorders, including hyperactivity, learning disabilities, mental retardation, encephalitis and Guillain-Barre' syndrome.

 

Studies

Many health professionals are speaking out about their concern that childhood vaccines harm the developing immune system. At the same time, questions are being raised about the skyrocketing rate of chronic illness and disease among children. It doesn't seem likely those processed foods, environmental toxins, dental toxins, psychological stress and over used antibiotic drugs are the only culprits. Illnesses tend to begin when babies are three or four months old--the point at which maternal antibodies are beginning to wear out, leaving babies susceptible to environmental substances. These babies aren't developing their own antibodies in response to the challenges. Investigators need to spend more time investigating immune system reactions to vaccines. Investigations thus far have produced the same conclusion: Vaccines can trigger immune suppression.

 

A 1996 study in the New England Journal of Medicine revealed that tetanus vaccine disables the immune system by producing a drop in immune T cells, a classic marker of immune deficiency, in 10 of 13 patients. In one study, published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, it was shown that the measles vaccine has a long-term depressed interferon production. The vaccination of one-year-olds with measles vaccine caused a precipitous drop in their level of alpha-interferon production. This decline was still persisting one year following vaccination, when the study was terminated. Results of a study in New Zealand, published in 1997 in Epidemiology, point to higher rates of asthma and allergy episodes among vaccinated children.

 

And in a study using the Mumps-Measles-Rubella (MMR) vaccine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, researchers investigated the association between childhood asthma and live-virus viral strains may be contributory to the rise in IgE (antibody)-mediated disorders. Other researchers are saying that vaccines are disabling our bodies' ability to react normally to disease, thereby creating autoimmune conditions. In 1994, a committee of investigators at the Institutes of Medicine directly associated vaccines with the rising occurrence of autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, that attack and destroy the myelin sheaths (insulation) of nerves. They said "it's plausible that injection of an inactivated virus, bacterium, or live attenuated virus might induce in the susceptible host an autoimmune response by deregulation of the immune response, by nonspecific activation of the T cells directed against myelin proteins, or by autoimmunity triggered by sequence similarities of proteins in the vaccine to host proteins such as those of myelin."

 

A study published in the New Zealand Medical Journal in 1996 revealed that an epidemic of diabetes followed a massive campaign to vaccinate children against hepatitis-B. The study showed a 60% increase in childhood insulin-dependent diabetes, an autoimmune disease, occurring in the years following the 1989-1991-vaccination program of children aged 6 to 16. Others have shown that widespread use of the Hemophilus meningitis vaccine has resulted in diabetes epidemics. Diabetes has also been frequently observed a a consequence of the mumps vaccine: Three European studies reported 22 cases of diabetes that began within 30 days of mumps vaccination. These are just a very few studies amidst the growing proof that tampering with the immune system ca cause devastating disease. These statistics are missing in the pediatric profession.

 

Adverse reactions usually don't get reported and are routinely met with denial: There are many documented case histories of mothers given the brush-off when reporting a vaccine reaction to their pediatricians. Vaccinations are the bread and butter of pediatricians. In 1998, the worldwide market for pediatric vaccines was $1.8 billion. Vaccines are the very foundation of the "well baby" programs and the livelihood of the entire pediatric industry. The declining health of our children is becoming obvious. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the figures for asthma incidence since 1980 have gone from 6.7 million to 17.3 million cases. Most of the increase is in children. More than 5,000 die each year from asthma attacks. The overall health of American children is pathetic: Asthma, allergies, autoimmune disease and the very infectious diseases for which they were vaccinated--are all on the rise. These include certain cancers, leukemia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), lupus and the motor neuron disease, Guillain Barre' syndrome.

 

Immune Theory

According to the Immune Theory, natural immunity is developed through actual contact and contracting the disease. The mucus membranes of the nose, nasal and air passages assist the body and the immune system in preparing the correct response. These systems are bypassed with artificial immunity. Artificial immunity is a science project with an unknown length of protection, while natural immunity is nature taking its course and generally leads to lifetime protection. Vaccination immunity is clearly less than complete, as 1988 CDC figures showed that of 795 reported cases of pertussis in infants aged three to six months, Forty-nine percent of them had been fully vaccinated. The concept behind vaccination is to "scientifically improve" immune response by introducing foreign protein, such as the theoretical, disease-causing bacterium or "virus" called an antigen, into the body. The clinical evidence for vaccinations is their ability to stimulate antibody production in the recipient--a fact that is not disputed. What is not clear, however, is whether or not such antibody production constitutes immunity. For example, agammaglobulin-anemic children are incapable of producing antibodies, yet they recover from infectious diseases almost as quickly as do other children. The immune system is then supposed to wage a mini-campaign against the foreign matter and develop antibodies tailored for that disease organism, for future reference, in case the child contacts the pathogens in the environment.

 

Artificial immunity from vaccination has created the modern phenomenon of atypical forms of the original condition appearing during adulthood. The process of creating a vaccine involves making a disease agent gradually weaker and weaker, disguising it until it is below the threshold of making your body become ill when the vaccine is injected into your blood. That means your immune system does not get triggered normally. By allowing the inoculation of an attenuated (half-killed) substance into the body, we have done something nature would never permit. We have violated the sanctity of the bloodstream. We have tricked the immune system into not mounting an all-out response to a foreign agent. If the vaccine's microorganisms were not attenuated, all the powers of the natural immune system would join together to attack the invader.

 

Harvard Medical School's Richard Moskowitz, M.D., explains that the way vaccines are evolved is to make them weaker, just to the point where they don't produce any immediate inflammatory response. He believes that, in this form, the altered virus or bacteria can penetrate deeper into our tissues than would naturally be possible. They can remain latent for a short time or for years. Then when something triggers them into action, they can manifest themselves in virtually any place or system of the body, causing major dysfunction degenerative disease, or even death. In his book, The Lives of a Cell, Dr. Lewis Thomas discusses our contemporary obsession with the lowly microorganism and its "dangerous" but imagined, relation to disease. He reminds us that the microbial inhabitants of our world are part of a symbiotic arrangement and that every creature is connected to and dependent upon the rest. Another paragraph explains: "It has been estimated that we probably have real knowledge of only a small proportion of the microbes of the earth, because most of them cannot be cultivated alone. With our present technology, we can no more isolate one from the rest, and rear it alone, than we can keep a single bee from drying up like a desquamated cell when removed from his hive."

 

A study published by the British Medical Council in 1950, during a diphtheria epidemic, concluded that there was no relationship between antibody count and disease incidence; researchers found resistant people with extremely low antibody counts and sick people with high counts. Natural immunity is a complex phenomenon involving many organs and systems; it cannot be fully replicated by the artificial stimulation of antibody production. Research also indicates that vaccination commits immune cells to the specific antigens involved in the vaccine, rendering them incapable of reacting to other infections. Our immunological reserve may thus actually be reduced, causing a generally lowered resistance. Another component of immunization theory is herd immunity, which states that when enough people in a community are immunized, all are protected. There are many documented instances showing just the opposite: fully vaccinated populations do contract diseases. With measles, this actually seems to be the direct result of high vaccination rates. The Genetic Theory Of Disease comes into play and the mental retardation can be blamed on faulty genes of the mother, the father or the grandparents. There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculation can be credited with eliminating any infectious disease. If vaccinations were responsible for the disappearance of these diseases in the U.S., why did these diseases disappear simultaneously in Europe, where mass vaccinations did not take place?

 

Natural Immunity

Natural immunity is a complex phenomenon involving many organs and systems; it cannot be fully replicated by the artificial stimulation of antibody production. Vaccination by direct injection is based on the unproven assumption that the mere artificial stimulation of antibodies by the sudden presence of a foreign agent in the bloodstream confers immunity. It doesn't. If the body is allowed to figure out how to fight the condition on its own, without the added confusion and burden of vaccines and drugs, the body can develop natural immunity and will not be susceptible to the same condition in the future. It now has a memory of how to fight it. Artificial immunity from vaccination is often temporary. This helps explain why some individuals still develop the condition they were vaccinated against. This also is the reason for booster shots. From the moment you began passing through your mother's birth canal during labor, your body began contacting, and picking up, numerous beneficial bacterial microorganisms. These beneficial bacteria, which are absolutely essential to proper human function, entered your body through your mouth as you passed through the birth canal. From there, they rapidly made their way into your intestinal tract, where they established themselves in large colonies.

 

Your mother's milk contained just the right ingredients to nourish these bacteria once they become established in your intestines. These beneficial microorganisms soon became an integral part of your gastrointestinal ecology. Once established, they go to work performing or stimulating a number of important functions. They are part of the first line of defense--the immune system (natural vaginal birth and nursed). Our immune systems also start with the colostrum in breast milk from our mothers. The immune system is in constant change from this point on, adapting to every little need and defense your body requires to ward-off invaders. Our immune system develops through exposure to our environment. Contracting measles or mumps will not only give life-long immunity to the one disease, research has shown that, as a result of naturally acquiring mumps or measles, one is less likely to contract breast cancer, prostate cancer and degenerative diseases. Artificial immunity, on the other hand, has been linked to autoimmune diseases, such as arthritis and diabetes.

 

To escape a weak immune system, a few immune weakening factors should be avoided: (1) Chemicals that impair the immune system, such as fluoride, antibiotics, immunizations and refined sugar. (2) Blood transfusions or injections of factors from pooled-human blood. (3) Injectibles (by hypodermic needles) of street drugs, especially with shared syringes. This includes any drug usage--prescription or street drugs. At the same time, one should supplement the diet with nutrients known to maintain the immune system such as ionized calcium, real vitamin C, zinc, real B-complex and nutritional copper. Vitamin A and magnesium are also essential for a healthy immune system; in fact, good nutrition is absolutely imperative. A major part of "civilized" populations are ingesting huge amounts of refined carbohydrates (sugar) as a large part of the daily diet.

 

Sugar definitely weakens the immune system and it has been scientifically established that ingestion of 100 grams of sugar reduces the immune function 50 percent within an hour. A level teaspoon of white sugar is 5 grams; so about 20 teaspoons of sugar would amount to 100 grams. A 12-ounce bottle of cola contains up to 9 teaspoons of sugar. It is well known that malnutrition, drugs, chemicals and numerous medical procedures play havoc with the immune system. Alone or in concert they contribute to AIDS. A few examples include:

1. Public water supply contamination with sodium fluoride (NaF) or related compounds. Adequate studies have been conducted to show that fluoride ingestion can result in leukopenia, anemia and lowered serum B12. Ann. Stomatol., Vol. 9, pp. 1-14, 1960. Since the cited study, demonstrated that 1-ppm of NaF (1.0 mg. per liter) can cause leukopenia, there's no valid reason to question whether-or-not fluoridated water, fluoride containing dentifrices and atmospheric fluoride pollution can contribute to immune deficiency. Fluoride is just one of many environmental chemicals known to depress bone marrow function.

 

2. Microbiology, Davis, Dulvecco, Eisen, Ginsberg and Wood, 2nd Ed., Harper & Row, page 499 mentions drugs and diagnostic procedures that cause immuno-suppression. "Lympholytic agents (X-rays, radiomimetic alkylating drugs, corticosteroids) cause destruction of lymphocytes." On page 501, it mentions antimetabolite type drugs and antimicrobials, which includes antibiotics, as being immunosuppressive.

 

3. Going back to the 1980 publication: Basic & Clinical Immunology, Eisen, Ginsberg and Wood, 2nd Ed., Harper & Row, page 133, it is recognized that: "Malnutrition may profoundly affect immune responses and particularly may depress delayed hypersensitivity responses. In addition, the presence of iron deficiency and certain vitamin deficiencies...have been associated with decreased delayed hypersensitivity responses."

 

Childhood Diseases

Dangers of childhood diseases are greatly exaggerated in order to scare parents into compliance with a questionable but profitable procedure. Most childhood infectious diseases have few serious consequences in today's modern world. Even conservative CDC statistics for pertussis during 1992-94 indicate a 99.8% recovery rate. The vast majority of the time, childhood infectious disease is benign and self-limiting. They also impart lifelong immunity, whereas vaccine-induced immunity is only temporary. About half of measles cases in the resurgence of the late 1980s were in adolescents and adults most of whom were vaccinated as children. Moreover, recommended booster shots may provide protection for less than six months. In fact, the temporary nature of vaccine immunity can create amore dangerous situation in a child's future. For example, the new chicken-pox vaccine has an effectiveness estimated at six to 10 years. If effective, it will postpone the child's vulnerability until adulthood, when death from the disease is 20 times more likely. Furthermore, some healthcare professionals are concerned that the virus from the chicken-pox vaccine may reactivate later in life in the form of herpes zoster (shingles) or other immune system disorders. We don't know the risks involved in injecting mutated DNA (herpes virus) into the host genome (children). The truth is, no one knows, but the vaccine is now licensed and recommended by health authorities. Not only are most infectious diseases rarely dangerous, but also they actually play a vital role in the development of a strong, healthy immune system. Persons who have not had measles have a higher incidence of certain skin diseases, degenerative diseases of bone and cartilage, and certain tumors; while absence of mumps is linked to higher risks of ovarian cancer.

 

 

 

 

Thimerosal

It is a common myth today that the vaccines administered to children no longer contain the toxic additive thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative linked to causing permanent neurological damage. But a recent federal case involving the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has revealed that, contrary to this widely-held belief, thimerosal is actually still present in many batch vaccines, including in the annual influenza vaccine that is now administered to children as young as six months old.

 

Another myth often spread by thimerosal advocates claims that the ethylmercury compounds that compose roughly 50 percent of the preservative are not actually harmful because they are different from the type found in a can of tuna. But a comprehensive review conducted by Dr. Paul G. King has proven otherwise, showing that ethylmercury is first metabolized by the body into toxic methylmercury, which is then metabolized into inorganic mercury. Both methylmercury and inorganic mercury are listed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as toxic substances responsible for causing neurological problems, brain disorders, nervous system illnesses, gastrointestinal problems, kidney failure, respiratory illness, and death.

 

U.S. public health officials claim that there is no problem with the vaccine industry's use of mercury compound that they say prevents contamination. However, a growing number of doctors and scientists are questioning its use, saying that the amounts of mercury getting into infant bodies through this route appear to be killing people slowly. The compound is called thimerosal and it is as controversial as mercury is toxic.

 

Dr. Mark Geier, MD, PhD, director of the Genetic Centers of America, cited statistics from the Department of Education: In the 1970s, Geier said, the estimate of autism rate was about one in 25,000. However, in the 1980s, he claimed, it rose to one in 2,500. In the 1990s, he said it was about one in 250. Today, the estimate in the United States is about one in 150, he said. "That estimate is by Eli Lilly, which makes thimerosal," said Geier.

 

What happened in 1990 is that we added HIB, Thermopolis D and also Hepatitis B vaccines to our routine childhood vaccine schedule, which was previously only DPT. So we actually tripled the amount of mercury at that moment in the vaccines," said Geier. " But worse than that, it's not limited to autism," said Geier. According to researchers, Geier said that reading disorders are up 30-fold. Speech disorders are up--currently one in eight children in the United States are in special education.

 

"You have to be six years old to be in special education, so we're all shaking to see what the next figure will be for the next six years, and we already have some early indicators. It's going to come out between one in six and one in five," said Geier. All this special education and special care are at a premium cost, say experts. And when these children mature into adults, they will not be productive--they will cost "an estimated $20 trillion," said Rep. Dan Burton, whose House committee is looking at this issue.

 

Geier places the blame for the pandemic of autism squarely on mercury toxicity--primarily thimerosol used in childhood vaccines. "Fortunately, we know the culprit is thimerosal, including the authorities, even though they are covering it up. It's still in some of the vaccines, though they say they are removing it. That's the reason incidentally you don't see them out looking for any other cause of autism. If they didn't believe we were right, they would be looking for a poison out of a factory or terrorists or something. They are doing nothing," said Geier.

 

Geier said that officials have attempted to attribute the rise in the number of cases of autism to genetics. "I'm a board certified geneticist and know that there are no genetic epidemics. An epidemic means a rapid rise in human disease. The fastest known change in genetics is 1 percent per 100 years," he said. "The epidemic is due to thimerosal and not due to genetics," he said. Geier said there are more than 5,000 papers on thimerosal available at pubmedcentral.nih.gov, the web site of the National Library of Medicine's digital archive. He said that many of these papers warn of the dangers and call for removal from the vaccines.

 

So, who is responsible for this mess? Geier blames the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the FDA. The FDA licenses vaccines and the CDC is supposed to monitor their safety, said Geier. "The vaccine system in this country is such that whatever time they want to make a change in vaccines, they have a committee that meets. Unfortunately, as Dan Burton's committee has shown--he can't find a single meeting where the vote does not involve owners of patents, or holders of large numbers of shares in the vaccine company, or who take large amounts of vaccine money or are actually working for the vaccine companies," said Geier.

 

Geier says what is hapening may be illegal. "It's more than a revolving door. It's not just that they are going to hire them after they leave industry; they are hiring them while they are there," he said. "The government is encouraged to 'work with industry.' So, you can go to the CDC and you can see people that are helping the CDC, paid for by Eli Lilly--the producers of thimerosal. If you have workers who work for the company you are regulating, there has to be some question to how well you're doing it," he said.

 

 

52 Inoculations in the First 16 Months of Life

Approximately 100 years ago, children were on the receiving end of one vaccine, smallpox. Approximately 40 years ago there were five vaccines being promoted: diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio and smallpox. Usually the child received eight shots of one kind or another by age two. A detailed count reveals that kids now get 52 vaccines via 15 shots by age 16 months, if parents stand still for the shots recommended by AMA medicine. Included is the preventive pediatrics pneumonia shot.

 

Vaccines contain Thimerosal (mercury), MSG, aluminum, formaldehyde, sucrose and phenoxyethanol (antifreeze). Thimerosal is nearly 50 percent mercury. In turn, mercury is a neurotoxin with an EPA safe level of .01 microgram per 1 kilogram bodyweight per day. Vaccines contain 12.5 to 25 micrograms of mercury. A visit to the clinic can inject 50 to 62.5 micrograms of mercury into the bloodstream. This is if the 10-dose vials were properly shaken each time they were used. If not, the recipient of the last couple of doses receives vastly larger quantities of mercury that precipitated to the bottom of the vial.

 

A child usually gets a hepatitis-B shot on the day of birth. It contains 12 micrograms of mercury, or 30 times the safe level. Four months later, the average American child receives the DTap-HiB combined vaccine. This one contains 50 micrograms of mercury, 60 times the safe level. At 6 months of age, Hep-B and Polio vaccines are given the “protected” child. The mercury load is 62.5 micrograms, or 78 times the safe level. It isn’t over yet. At 15 months of age, the same child receives an additional 50 micrograms of mercury housed in shots, or 41 times the safe level.

 

These data are recited here because even low levels of mercury have been associated with neurological disorders, including attention deficit disorder, autism and under-developed speech. Add to this the accumulated toxic load of mercury from the mother’s amalgam dental fillings the child received in utero through the placental blood, and after birth through breast-feeding and they will have an incredibly high level of mercury in the first few months of life and it then builds up from that time on from the various sources of exposure in our environment, especially from dental amalgam fillings.

 

Smallpox Vaccine

Among the organizations that have opposed the plan for mandatory mass vaccinations is the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). The risk of serious adverse incidents outweighs any benefit that might derive from mass vaccinations for smallpox, according to an AAP policy statement issued in September 2002. Possible complications of vaccination, the statement said, would include generalized rashes, eczema, progressive vaccinia, encephalitis and death. Smallpox vaccine has been known for decades to produce significant adverse effects, especially in immunocompromised persons. Smallpox is virtually an extinct disease. Globally, the last case of smallpox occurred in Somalia in 1977. In 1972, routine smallpox immunizaiton was halted in the United States. Stockpiles of vaccine have been used only for laboratory research since then. In 1980, the World Health Organization declared that smallpox had been successfully eradicated worldwide. The AAP agrees witht he Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which advocate an alternative to the Bush plan to "fight bioterrorism." At this time, there are no validated estimates of the chance of smallpox being introduced into the U.S. population, but many bioterrorism experts consider it to be quite unlikely. "The public should be educated about the possible serious effects of smallpox immunization, especially for children, because surveillance studies demonstrate that they have a higher incidence of adverse effects," said the AAP policy statement.

 

Some of the Ingredients Used To Make a Vaccine:

Ethylene glycol (antifreeze)

Phenol also known as carbolic acid (this is used as a disinfectant & dye)

Formaldehyde a known cancer causing agent

Aluminum which is associated with Alzheimer's disease and seizures also cancer producing in laboratory mice (it is used as an additive to promote antibody response)

Thimerosal (used as a mercury disinfectant/ preservative) can result in brain injury and autoimmune disease.

Neomycin, Streptomycin (used as antibiotic) have caused allergic reaction in some people

 

These vaccines are also grown and strained thru animal or human tissue like monkey kidney tissue, chicken embryo, embryonic guinea pig cells, calf serum, human diploid cells (the dissected organs of aborted human fetuses as in the case of rubella, hepatitis A, and chickenpox vaccines).

 

Dangers

The medical authorities keep lying. Vaccination has been a disaster on the immune system. It actually causes a lot of illnesses. We are changing our genetic code through vaccination. Soon, we will know that the biggest crimes against humanity were vaccines and mercury dental fillings. We are taught to believe that untoward reactions to vaccines are rare. In the professional literature there are over 5,000 pages of documented reports telling the truth about the medical folly of immunizations. They are seldom if ever published in the newspapers or magazines written for the public. Most parents are unaware that polio vaccination in this country entails a small number of human sacrifices each year. Dr. Robert S. Mendelsohn M.D. in January of 1983, stated: "A growing number of parents now recognize that those deadly baby shots, falsely sacrificed by the Doctor/Priest, have tragically changed their lives and the lives of their children and grandchildren. A larger group of parents now appreciate that the life and death decision of immunizing children is an awesome responsibility."

 

For years, critics on the fringes of medicine have pointed to problems with vaccines. The theory that science can inject a virus into a child and render the child immune from the disease is a wonderful concept but, along with the virus or bacterial agents, vaccines contain other foreign and toxic substances. Most vaccines contain some of the following: Thimerosol (Mercury derivative), Formaldehyde (disinfectant), Mercury, Phenol (disinfectant/dye), Aluminum, Acetone, Ethylene Glycol (anti-freeze), Methylparaben (antifungal/preservative), Pig and Horse blood, Cow Pox Pus, Rabbit brain, Dog kidney tissue. There is no acceptable, safe amount of formaldehyde, which can be injected into a living human body. These harmful substances are known carcinogenic toxins that do terrible things to the human body; especially an infant with rapidly developing systems. And, when given to those with compromised immune systems, they are immuno-suppressive.

 

Viral elements in vaccines may persist and mutate in the human body for years, with unknown consequences. Most adverse reactions disable the infant's developing nervous system to some extent. The nervous system is up and functioning during the fifth month of uterine life. A protective and functional layer of fat must develop around the nerves and brain. This fatty tissue is called myelin. Myelin coats the nerves like insulation on a wire and helps to speed the nerve impulses between the brain and the body. If this process of myelination is interfered with, neurological damage results. Neurological damage causes such conditions as autism, stuttering and even the subtle influencing of left or right-handedness. The nervous system controls every aspect of the body and therefore, interfering with the development of the nervous system can affect any system or function of the body. Here are a few examples of documented interference with the myelination process: Autism, Stuttering, Dyslexia, Asthma, Severe Headaches, Vision Problems, Obesity, Hypo/Hyperactivity, Epilepsy, Seizures. The DPT shot, among all vaccinations in use, produces the most serious adverse reactions. Before 1985, parents were never adequately advised (if at all) of the potentially harmful side effects of DPT. Even today pediatricians still usually downplay the risks. In the U.S., approximately 1,000 infants die annually as a direct result of DPT vaccinations, and these are classified as SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) deaths. From just the DPT vaccination:

One infant in:

--875 shots suffered convulsion, shock, and inflammation;

--389 shots suffered neurological reaction;

--363 shots suffered from unusual crying;

--3,500 shots died.

 

There are 35,000 acute neurological reactions occurring within forty-eight hours of a DPT shot among America's children every year. Injection of filthy, pathological debris into a young person's body--theoretically to prevent measles--introduces seeds of future degenerative diseases, later manifested as multiple sclerosis, cancer, etc. In 1970/71, there were more than 33,000 cases of pertussis, with 41 fatal cases among well-immunized British children. After more than 50 years after the DPT vaccine was introduced, no accepted parameters have been developed for prescreening hypersensitive children who might be at risk from DPT. The November 1979 issue of Current Prescribing is a bit enlightening about the effectiveness of the DPT vaccine. In a section headlined, Doubts Over Safety, Efficacy of Pertussis Vaccine Continue--the truth got out. It reveals the following booboo: "The most interesting feature of the study was the outbreak started and spread among the older children. The immunization rate in this group was 94%. If the immunization had been effective, this high rate should have produced herd immunity sufficient to have prevented an epidemic." If the victims could have been grazing on grass in the fields or picking ticks off each other in the trees, perhaps the hypothetical herd immunity would have prevented the epidemic--but, was anyone giving vaccinations a million years ago?

 

There are many side effects from smallpox vaccine: (encephalitis, eczema vaccinatum, accidental implant of vaccinia on eye, super-infection or other skin conditions), Pertussis or Whooping cough: (high fever, convulsions, encephalopathy) and Measles: (encephalitis, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, ataxia, retardation, learning disability, hyperactivity, aseptic meningitis, seizure disorders, hemiparesis). These are now viewed as classical--that is, these are the more commonly seen complications as described by the medical profession'not to mention side effects, not yet questioned by doctors, resulting from vaccination. Simply because the physician has not made a connection between these symptoms and inoculation, doesn't assure us that none exists. Recently, medical men who are critical of World Health Organization's (WHO) expertise have reported that WHO was responsible for vaccinating millions of Africans with smallpox vaccine which was contaminated with AIDS "virus". At a press conference in Washington on July 24, 1942, the Secretary of War reported that 28,585 cases of jaundice had been observed in the American Army between January 1 and July 4 after yellow fever vaccination, and of these 62 proved fatal.

 

Hepatitis-B statistics:

--16,000 adverse reactions since 1990

--24,775 adverse reactions of which, 9,673 were serious reactions involving emergency room visits, hospitalization, and disablement

--439 deaths

 

The government estimates that only ten percent of all injuries are reported. The risk of death from smallpox vaccine is now greater than the risk of death from smallpox itself. The credit for the decline in the incidence of smallpox could not be given to vaccination. The fact is that its incidence declined in all parts of Europe, whether or not vaccination was employed. Smallpox, like typhus, has been dying out (in England) since 1780. English history provides interesting facts regarding smallpox. The incidence of smallpox actually increased with the introduction of smallpox vaccine. Prior to 1853 (and the complete vaccination of the nation) there had been about 2,000 deaths per two-year-period. Nearly 20 years later, after the vaccination program had been in effect for those years, the biggest smallpox epidemic of 23,062 occurred. Towns where there had been the most thorough enforcement were the most severely hit. By 1900, the effects of health care improvements had been weighed against the effects of inoculation and the English began to resist immunization programs.

 

The British still managed to rigidly enforce compulsory vaccination in India. India's smallpox death rate compared horribly with England's at the turn of this century. In 1929, the League of Nations reported India as "the greatest center of smallpox today." In our country, smallpox vaccination lost its appeal by 1927 or so when it was realized that the vaccinated suffered the worst effects of the disease. A brief look at the statistics for the U.S.: 1902--2,121 deaths, when smallpox vaccine was at the height of its use, by 1927--138, when it had for the most part been abandoned. Around this time, the Philippines had experienced a ten-year campaign of vaccination against smallpox: the death rate rose from 10% to 74%. In 1918, after ten years of vaccination, more than 18,000 Philippinos died from smallpox. In England and Wales, after smallpox vaccination was terminated, two-thirds of the children were not vaccinated; of those two-thirds, only TWO died of smallpox. However, of the one-third vaccinated, 91 died of smallpox. (British Ministry of Health, The Independent, April 1961).

 

Carefully selected epidemiological studies are yet another justification for vaccination programs. However, many of these may not be legitimate sources from which to draw conclusions about vaccine effectiveness. For example, if 100 people are vaccinated and five contract the disease, the vaccine is declared to be 95% effective. But if only 10 of the 100 are actually exposed to the disease, then the vaccine is really only 50% effective. Since no one is willing to directly expose an entire population--even a fully vaccinated one--to disease, vaccine effectiveness rates do not indicate a vaccine's true effectiveness. Yet another surprising concern about immunization practice is its assumption that all children, regardless of age, are virtually the same. An eight-pound, two-month-old receives the same dosage as a 40-pound, five-year-old. Infants with immature, undeveloped immune systems may receive five or more times the dosage (relative to body weight) as older children. Furthermore, the number of "units" within doses has been found upon random testing to range from a half to three times what the label indicates. Manufacturing quality controls appear to tolerate a rather large margin of error. "Hot lots"--vaccine lots with disproportionately high death and disability rates--have been identified repeatedly by the NVIC, but the FDA refuses to intervene to prevent further unnecessary injury and deaths.

 

Finally, vaccination practice assumes that all recipients, regardless of race, culture, diet, geographic location or any other circumstances, will respond in the same way. This was dramatically disproved a few years ago in Australia's Northern Territory, where stepped-up immunization campaigns resulted in an incredible 50% infant mortality rate in the native Aborigines. A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine revealed that a substantial number of Romanian children were contracting polio from the vaccine--a less common phenomenon in most developed countries. Correlations with injections of antibiotics were found: a single injection within one month of vaccination raised the risk of polio eight times; two to nine injections raised the risk 27-fold; and 10 or more injections raised the risk 182 times. We will not begin to comprehend fully the scope of this danger until researchers begin looking and reporting in earnest. In the meantime, entire countries' populations are unwitting gamblers in a game that many might very well choose not to play if they were given all the rules in advance.

 

The goal of complete immunization is actually counterproductive--a notion underscored by instances in which epidemics followed complete immunization of entire nations. Japan experienced yearly increases in smallpox following the introduction of compulsory vaccines in 1872. By 1892 there were 29,979 deaths, and all had been vaccinated. Early in this century, the Philippines experienced their worst smallpox epidemic ever, after eight million people received 24.5 million vaccine doses; the death rate quadrupled. In 1989 Oman experienced a widespread polio outbreak six months after achieving complete vaccination. In the US in 1986, 90% of 1,300 pertussis cases in Kansas were "adequately vaccinated."

 

In the 1993 Chicago pertussis outbreak, 72% of cases were fully up-to-date with their vaccinations. The medical literature has a surprising number of studies documenting vaccine failure. Measles, mumps, smallpox, polio and Hib outbreaks have all occurred in vaccinated populations. In 1989 the CDC reported: "Among school-aged children, measles outbreaks have occurred in schools with vaccination levels of greater than 98%. They have occurred in all parts of the country, including areas that had not reported measles for years." The CDS even reported a measles outbreak in a documented 100%-vaccinate population. Now, the frequently stated reservation surfaces: Well, if vaccination is worthless and dangerous how can one explain the wonderful demise of polio, smallpox, etc? Six New England states reported increases in polio one year after the Salk vaccine was introduced--increases ranging form a more than doubling in Vermont to an astounding 642% in Massachusetts. In 1959, 77.5% of Massachusetts" paralytic cases had received three doses of IPV (injected polio vaccine).

 

Just before and during World War I, the doctrine of vaccinal immunity got its big start. In fact, much evidence is extant to support, or at least strongly suggest, that mass vaccinations played a large part in sparking the Spanish Flu Epidemic that decimated over 20 million persons--mostly young, military age. The majority of deaths occurred among young men of military age--not the elderly or infants as would be normally expected. The Spanish Flu Epidemic started at Fort Riley, Kansas, then went to the Brooklyn and Norfolk Navy Yards, and later jumped across the country to San Quentin prison. A very strange phenomenon! The common denominator being the first time in the history of organized medicine, a captive audience was gathered together to submit, without option, to the medical experimentation of mass inoculation. The big lie that the epidemic started in Spain is pure hogwash, but it took the finger of guilt away from the true perpetrators; murderers of millions, whether by folly or for monetary gain.

 

By checking the military records of World War II, the majority of patients in veteran's hospitals never saw combat and many went to the hospital from boot camps or basic training. Over 70% of veterans hospital admissions, at one time, were directly from basic training camps rather than front-line duty. All were vaccinated! A Minnesota state epidemiologist concluded that the Hib vaccine increases the risk of illness, when a study revealed that vaccinated children were five times more likely to contract meningitis than were the unvaccinated children. The highly respected textbook of Robbins-Cotran, Pathologic Basis Of Disease, 2nd. ed., 1979, pretty well summed up the truth about whether or not Immunology is something upon which you wish to hang your future. It states and clarifies: "It must be obvious that there is no dearth of speculation about the origins of autoimmunity and that all theories are built on fragmentary observations held together by gossamer threads. However, it is likely that the tremendous advances now being made in basic immunology will soon separate fact from fancy." So, the whole theory behind immunological procedures, upon which vaccination is based, hangs upon gossamer threads.

 

Costs

The vaccine industry is lucrative. Merck, some of the big three vaccine manufacturers makes over 1 billion dollars per year in vaccine sales alone. With this being only one company that produces vaccines, it is clear that this is a multi-billion dollar industry. Do you think companies like Merck, Lederle, Wyeth, Connaugh, Parke-Davis, Eli-Lilly & Co will let anything stand in their way of profits? These companies hire the researchers to do the vaccine research! Not only have vaccines been under-researched by the government, the manufacturers, and the researchers paid for by the manufacturers; the government has issued laws that protect the manufacturers from any liability from adverse reactions or complications. The act is the National Vaccination Compensation Act of 1987. This federal government act protects the vaccine manufacturer from people suing the manufacturer for the adverse reaction or complications arising from the vaccine injection. In 1998, drug companies spent over $6 billion to tell us what drugs we need! Vaccinations cost us much more than just the lives and health of our children.

 

The US Federal Government's National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) has paid out over $724.4 million in taxpayers' dollars to parents of vaccine-injured and vaccine-killed children. The NVICP has received over 5,000 petitions since 1988, including over 700 for vaccine-related deaths, and there are still some 2,000 total death and injury cases pending that may take years to be resolved. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical companies have a captive market. Vaccines are legally mandated in all 50 US states (though legally avoidable in most), yet these same companies are "immune" from accountability for the consequences of their products. Furthermore, they have been allowed to use "gag orders" as a leverage tool in vaccine-damage legal settlements to prevent disclosure of information about vaccination dangers to the public. Such arrangements are clearly unethical; they force an unconsenting American public to pay for vaccine manufacturer's liabilities, while attempting to ensure that this same public will remain ignorant of the dangers of their products. Insurance companies (who do the best liability studies) refuse to cover vaccine adverse reactions.

Statistics

Studies used to support immunization are so flawed that it is impossible to say if immunization provides a net benefit to anyone or to society in general. This question can only be determined by proper studies that have never been performed. The flaws of previous studies were that there was no long-term follow up, and chronic toxicity was not considered. The United Kingdom's Department of Health admitted that vaccination status determined the diagnosis of subsequent diseases: those found in vaccinated patients received alternative diagnoses; hospital records and death certificates were falsified. Today, many doctors are still reluctant to diagnose disease in vaccinated children, and so the "myth" about vaccine success continues. The combined death rate from scarlet fever, diphtheria, whooping cough and measles among children up to fifteen, shows that nearly 90% of the total decline in mortality between 1860 and 1965 had occurred before the introduction of antibiotics and widespread immunization. The diseases in question have continued to break out even in highly immunized populations. Spotty statistics from the FDA indicate that no more than one death occurs per five million inoculations, while, according to the CDC, 10 of the 2,177 reported pertussis cases led to death.

 

But, Dr. Young, who had been an investigator at the NIH and a department chairman at his university, called that low iatrogenic (doctor caused) fatality rate an artifact of a voluntary reporting system, as the FDA cited widespread reluctance by physicians to report adverse reactions." There had been a lowering of mortality rates from pertussis of approximately 80% by the time immunization was introduced on a mass scale, in the mid-nineteen fifties. No credit can be given to vaccination for the major part of the decline since it was not in use. During 1962, US congressional hearings, Dr Bernard Greenberg, Dept. of Biostatistics for the University of North Carolina School of Public Health, testified that not only did the cases of polio increase substantially after mandatory vaccinations (50% increase from 1957-58, 80% increase from 1958-59), but the statistics were manipulated by the Public Health Service to give the opposite impression.

 

According to researcher/author Dr. Viera Scheibner, summarized her investigation of some 30,000 pages of medical literature on vaccination in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), a 1999 letter to Congress: "Immunizations, including those practiced on babies, not only did not prevent any infectious diseases, they caused more suffering and more deaths than has any other human activity in the entire history of medical intervention. It will be decades before the mopping-up after the disasters caused by childhood vaccination will be completed. All vaccinations should cease forthwith, and all victims of their side effects should be appropriately compensated." Jane Orient, M.D., Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons agrees: "Public policy regarding vaccines is fundamentally flawed--permeated by conflicts of interest. It is based on poor scientific studies that are too small, too short and too limited."

 

Dozens of other legitimate researchers and doctors have come to the same conclusion. Hundreds of published medical studies document vaccine failure and adverse effects; several dozen books have been written expounding on these and related information condemning vaccines. Yet, most pediatricians and parents are completely unaware of these findings. Health authorities eliminated from statistics, 90% of polio cases by redefinition of the disease when the vaccine was introduced. For example, in the US, thousands of cases of viral and aseptic meningitis are reported each year. These were routinely diagnosed as polio before the Salk vaccine was introduced. The number of cases needed for an epidemic to be declared was raised from 20 to 35, and the requirement for inclusion in paralysis statistics was changed from symptoms for 24 hours to symptoms for over 60 days. It's no wonder that polio decreased radically after the introduction of vaccines--at least on paper. In 1985, the CDC reported that 87% of polio cases in the US between 1973 and 1983 were caused by the vaccine, and later declared that all but a few imported cases since were caused by the vaccine--and most of the imported cases occurred in fully immunized individuals. Jonas Salk, inventor of the IPV, testified before a Senate subcommittee that the oral polio vaccine caused nearly all polio outbreaks since 1961.

 

Since the 1940's and 50's, the time period when mass vaccinations began:

--11-14% infants have breathing disorders, Asthma, wheezing

--47% increase in respiratory disease and

--65% increase in Asthma from 69 - 81

--1 in 500 infants per year die from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

--15 Autistic children for every 10,000 births

--4,500 cases of Autism per year in US, only 150 reported prior to 1958

--A disproportionate increase in the left-handedness

--Learning disorders (ADD, ADHD, and Dyslexia) have increased

--80% increase in nervous system and mental disorders

--120% increase in diseases of the eyes and ears from 1969 - 1981

--129% increase in bilateral hearing loss from 1969 - 1981

 

This represents only a sample of the documented conditions linked to vaccines. The germ theory of disease must be re-examined.

Legislation

It was a 1904 U.S. Supreme Court decision that set the precedent for state-mandated vaccination requirements. A man named Jacobson, of Cambridge, Mass., protested a 1902 city Board of Health regulation that required all citizens to take the smallpox vaccination. Jacobson claimed he had reacted adversely to smallpox vaccination previously, and forcing him to submit would be tantamount to "an assault upon his person." But in Jacobson v. Massachusetts the Supreme Court rejected Jacobson's argument and set a major precedent as well. Physicians could be trusted, the Court ruled, to determine vaccination safety. The states' police power included "such reasonable regulations established directly by legislative enactment as will protect the public health and public safety." Moreover, an individual citizen must sacrifice his or her own "wishes or convenience" for the "welfare, safety and comfort of the many." And a lower court could not countermand state laws and re-decide medical issues. This was a landmark decision. It endorsed the states' right to pass mandatory vaccination laws and placed the burden on the individual refusing vaccination to prove that because of a unique health condition the vaccination could cause irreparable injury."

 

This precedent has been upheld for eight decades in a variety of state court decisions, and it laid the groundwork for national legislation. In 1965 Congress passed the Immunization Assistance Act, which was a grant program for states and large cities to set up public vaccination programs. In the 1970s U.S. Senator Dale Bumpers of Arkansas inspired Congress to underwrite a 100% mass vaccination program for school children, following the successful one in his own state. During the Carter administration, Bumpers' initiative boosted federal allotments for public vaccination from $7.5 million in 1974 to $46.9 million in 1979. In 1984 $30 million more was allotted to the CDC to work toward the goal of vaccination for 90% of all American children by the age of two. One short-lived vaccination crusade in the mid-1970s was not as successful. The notorious swine-flu mass vaccination program promoted by President Ford in 1976 for $135 million was an unqualified disaster, ending in deaths and lawsuits--the CDC's greatest blunder until the AIDS hoax and AZT. It all began in 1976 when CDC scientists saw that a "virus" involved in a flu attack outbreak at Fort Dix, N.J., that killed 500,000 Americans in 1918, was similar to the swine-flu "virus" (sic). Health officials immediately launched a 100-million dollar program to immunize every American. But the expected epidemic never materialized, and the vaccine led to partial paralysis in 532 people--there was 32 deaths. By 1977 claims of $1.3 billion in over 3,000 lawsuits had been filed against the federal government or drug companies for personal damages from the vaccine.

 

The world's biggest trial (conducted in south India) was launched in 1968 by the Indian Council of Medical Research with assistance from WHO and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia, to assess the value of BCG tuberculosis vaccine and made the startling revelation that the vaccine "does not give any protection against bacillary forms of tuberculosis." Between December 10, 1929 and April 30, 1930, 251 of 412 infants born in Lubeck received three doses of BCG vaccine by the mouth during the first ten days of life. Of these 251, 72 died of tuberculosis, most of them in two to five months and all but one before the end of the first year. In addition, 135 suffered from clinical tuberculosis but eventually recovered; and 44 became tuberculin-positive but remained well. None of the 161 unvaccinated infants born at the time was affected in this way and none of these died of tuberculosis within the following three years. Bobby G. Young, Ph.D., a professor at the University of Maryland and an investigator at the National Institutes of Health, reported his findings from scientifically conducted studies by researchers more interested in truth than concealing adverse effects benefiting the multi-billion-dollar vaccine industry. It was in the Medical Tribune of July, 1981, that Dr. Young's embarrassing facts slipped out. It suggested that the scientists were very careless in their scholarly, vaccine-guarding estimates of adverse effects.

 

It revealed the following: "The study had found that one case of brain damage results from 20,000 vaccinations, (not 310,000), one death from 54,000, and one neurotoxic reaction (screaming syndrome, convulsions or collapse) from 3,500." So, out of one million children receiving the DPT vaccine, about 20 die. About twice that many (50) have admitted brain damage, and, about 300 children suffer brain damage that is not called "brain damage," but a nice and harmless neurotoxic reaction characterized by uncontrollable screaming. These include convulsions and collapse.

 

The above-mentioned neurotoxic reaction, which occurs in one of 3,500 DPT vaccinations, is actually damage to the child's brain, and by no stretch of the imagination can it be classified as temporary or permanent. Years later, the truth will emerge when the child reaches puberty. Then, if the child is mentally normal--the damage was temporary. If the child is retarded and/or incorrigible the damage was permanent. But, the public health authorities, at that time, would never consider a childhood vaccine as being in any way related. Instead, they then label the child as ADHD or give some other in-vogue medical sentence and place the child on brain-damaging psychiatric drugs to treat the "biochemical imbalance" created by the immunizations. If the parents dissent, they can be charged with child-abuse and have their kids taken from them!

 

No one should be able to inject anything into your body or your teeth without your informed consent. Wake up people, stop letting poison be injected into your children's little maturing bodies, or your own, with the hope of preventing every disease known.

 

Poliomyelitis

Poliomyelitis was not wiped out, only the name was changed. In the 10th Ed., of Cecil and Loeb, A Textbook Of Medicine, page 63, it reveals: Previously the term non-paralytic poliomyelitis was employed, but a recommendation from the WHO called for its elimination and substitution of aseptic meningitis." Most cases reported prior to July 1, 1958, as non-paralytic poliomyelitis are now reported as viral or aseptic meningitis." Dr. Paavo Airola, Ph.D., presented the following information: "Polio vaccine has now been implicated as the major cause of polio in the U.S. by no lesser an expert than Dr. Jonas Salk." He writes in Science Abstracts: "Live virus vaccines against influenza and paralytic poliomyelitis, for example, may in each instance cause the disease it is intended to prevent; the live virus vaccines against measles and mumps may produce such side effects as encephalitis. The live virus polio vaccine is now the principle cause of polio in the U.S. and in other countries--evidence now exists that the live virus vaccine cannot be administered without risk of inducing paralysis--in vaccinated individuals or their contacts."

 

Dr. Salk did not vaccinate his own child. Poliomyelitis infection actually produces no symptoms in 90 % of its recipients and only 1-2 % of children infected develop its classic symptoms. Polio vaccine, required at three to four doses nationwide, comes in two forms: Salk killed-virus injection and Sabin live-virus oral vaccine.

 

Mumps

Mumps, or parotitis--a routine, relatively innocuous condition resembling measles and lasts one to two weeks and requires no medical treatment. Two-thirds of infected children develop a self-limiting illness with swollen salivary glands; fever, headache and appetite loss, but afterwards they have lifetime immunity. A single vaccination of live virus is given at age 15 months, usually as part of a triple injection called MMR.

 

Measles

Measles is a contagious condition that lasts two weeks. Characteristic symptoms are a high fever and a rash of pink spots, but more serious complications include eye and ear inflammations, pneumonia, or, sometimes encephalitis. The live virus vaccine was introduced in America in 1963 although the measles mortality rate had already dropped from 13.3 per 100,000 cases to 0.3 per 100,000 by 1955. Cecil's Textbook of Medicine page 229 teaches, "mumps and para-influenza viruses are indistinguishable by electron microscopy and even share antigens in common. The common features of viral infections can be considered as useful generalizations." Hardly a specific, scientific and absolute conclusion. The measles vaccine has been associated with:

a. Encephalitis (inflammation of the brain).

b. Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.

c. Demyelinating disease like Multiple Sclerosis.

d. Encephalopathy and hyperactivity, (JAMA 3/26/73).

e. Many reported deaths.

 

Rubella

Rubella (German measles) is often a benign condition with symptoms so mild they often escape detection. There is a three-day rash, fever, a slight cold, and sore throat. The principal danger is congenital rubella syndrome (CRS), whereby a pregnant woman can expose her fetus to injury if she contracts rubella in her first trimester. A children's mass immunization program for rubella began in 1969 after a CRS epidemic among 20,000 babies in 1964. In a study of German measles (rubella) researcher Dorothy Horstman (Yale) established that persons having been vaccinated are 20 times more apt to have the disease a second time over those who gain natural immunity from having had rubella. She reports, "In one study of military recruits, the reinfection rate (2nd episode) was 80% compared with 4% (2nd episodes) in naturally immune individuals."

 

Diphtheria

Diphtheria has nearly disappeared from America, where it was once greatly feared as a highly contagious bacterial disease with a mortality rate at 3-10 percent. Medical treatment with penicillin or erythromycin is usually indicated. Although mortality rates from diphtheria had dropped by 50 percent before a vaccine was developed, today three to five doses are required.

 

Pertussis

Pertussis, or whooping cough, is probably the most virulent of the traditional childhood conditions and it can be life threatening. The infectious agent, bordetella pertussis, was first isolated in France in 1906. Pertussis vaccination, using whole-cell killed virus, began in 1936 and became widespread by 1957. Pertussis symptoms, including a paroxysmal cough, usually afflict infants younger than two years. Today thirty-nine states require three to five injections, beginning at age two months.

 

Tetanus

Tetanus, technically not a childhood condition, is a potentially dangerous, sometimes fatal, random bacterial infection. Tetanus infection can produce severe neurological symptoms and muscular spasms (the spasms in the jaw gave the disease the name of "lockjaw"), and worldwide it has a 30-50 percent mortality rate. It is especially prevalent in tropical countries. A regimen of one to five tetanus inoculations is required by forty-seven states, beginning at age two months.

 

Reporting

"Prior to 1988 there was no nationally mandated reporting system one which required physicians or health departments to file reports on adverse reactions. Accurate data of prevalence of adverse reactions is lacking and estimates vary widely. Often pediatricians fail (or refuse) to make the connection between a DPT injection and adverse reactions, even when occurring within hours of each other. There is suspicion by people like Dr. Robert Simpson of Rutgers University that immunizations are allergy shots and the introduction of any foreign protein by injection into the body may later lead to the immunologic diseases like M.S., Parkinson's and rheumatoid arthritis," said Robert Mendelsohn, M.D. He adds, "In the total absence of controlled studies, all vaccines today remain, scientifically speaking, unproven remedies--the polite term for medical quackery. The only proven characteristic of vaccines is their devastating adverse effects." Dr. Mendelsohn also emphasized that parents do not know about controversies going on inside the medical journals. Doctors in Connecticut had rubella and mumps immunizations stopped.

 

Dr. Edward Shaw, a pediatrician from California came out against pertussis vaccine saying that it is not effective and it has a lot of neurological dangers, says Mendelsohn. "We are so conditioned to the idea that our doctor's word is to be trusted without question," said one mother whose infant died thirty-three hours after a DPT shot. "I am a nurse. I watched my son die that day and I didn't even know what was happening until it was all over." Richard Moskowitz M.D., Homeopath, and former president of the National Center for Homeopathy, is one of many holistic practitioners who have corroborated Mendelsohn's early indications. In Moskowitz's view, all vaccinations may be injurious to the functioning and integrity of the immune system. He argues that vaccination may produce a form of immuno-suppression and chronic immune failure (AIDS). The "virus," because it has been artificially weakened before injection, no longer initiates "a generalized, acute inflammatory response." Instead, it tricks the body into an antibody response--an isolated technical feat--and only an aspect of the overall immune ability. Worse, the condition may persist in the blood for prolonged periods, perhaps permanently. "Far from producing a genuine immunity, vaccines may actually interfere with or suppress the natural immune response," says Moskowitz. "By making it difficult or impossible to mount a vigorous, acute response to infection, artificial immunization substitutes a much weaker chronic response with little or no tendency for the body to heal itself spontaneously." The foregoing reports on the assininity of theoretical immunization, is based upon Darwinian concepts of evolution.

 

Dick O' Grunion, M.D. said, "Show me a child under the care of a modern-medicine pediatrician and I will show you a child that will never be well. Show me a child under the continuous care of an immunologist and I will show you a child who might never become an adult." "The epidemiologists look at mass vaccination the way a military general studies a battle. A general knows he must sacrifice men to take a hill. This is how government health officials see mass vaccination. They think that some children are expendable. I cannot think of any other instance in our society where we say it's okay to kill children--to have them be brain-damaged--because it's for the greater welfare of society," says mother-activist, Bonnie Fisher. She continues, "When it happens to your child, the risks are 100 percent." Why are we so willing to suspend our common sense and deny reality to believe in the infallibility of medicine and our doctors? We believe vaccines are completely safe and effective because that is what we have been told by our pediatricians and/or because we came from a family full of doctors and nurses and other health professionals who had dedicated their lives to medicine. People have absolutely no idea that a vaccination can result in brain damage or death. Today, parents of school children sign a paper agreeing not to sue if complications arise from compulsory immunizations. In California, there is a law providing up to $25,000 for medical expenses for kids who have catastrophic reactions to mandatory immunizations.

 

The fact that this law was enacted shows us that such reactions are common. If immunizations work, if they aren't harmful and they're safe, then why are they repeated? Why aren't the efficacy and safety guaranteed in writing? Why are adverse reactions kept hush-hush? Multiple sclerosis, cancer or auto-immune disease is just one of the little prices one has to pay for good preventative medicine! Wouldn't you much rather have MS, cancer or AIDS than the horrible rash of three-day measles? Thousands of competent medical physicians and scientists have written tens of thousands of papers exposing the untenable vaccination theories.

 

An excellent overview can be had, by reading: Immunization-The Reality Behind the Myth, by Walene James (Bergin and Garvey, $10.95). This book is thoroughly documented to establish that vaccination is genocidal and diabolical. To inject disease filth into an infant or child is the epitome of medical insanity. "It is time we as parents begin to take back the right and responsibility for our children's health instead of taking the easy way out and leaving the decisions up to doctors," says Bonnie Fisher, a mother who, one day in 1980, held down her two-and-a-half-year-old son, so the doctor could give him his fourth DPT shot--resulting in a mild encephalopathy that left him with brain damage, multiple learning disabilities and an impaired immunity. Thus in 1982 Fisher founded Dissatisfied Parents Together (DPT) in Washington, D.C., to spear head the drive for greater public awareness and to initiate legislative change.

 

Each year another 3.5 million babies are born in America, who will be legally required to have some 40 vaccinations and shots. American Medical News of 12-19-86 tells us that the AMA delegates voted to: "Encourage third-party payers to provide coverage for immunizations of adults and to explore ways to address and correct the problem of underutilization by adults of vaccines, and urge physicians to advocate immunization with all adult patients--provide vaccines to ambulatory as well as hospitalized patients." An article in Discover, August 1988, has some typical medical hyperbole alerting its readers that an AIDS vaccine is on the way. A careful perusal of the article (page 22) does reveal a fact or two, but also destroys the basic premise of immunology. The article, in part, relates: ...HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is notoriously elusive, continually changing its chemical identity, thus slipping past the immune system and vaccines." These questions come to mind: (1) This HIV, a piece of dead protein with no IQ is very elusive and changes its chemical makeup! How and why? (2) This virus somehow slips past the immune system. If that is true, where do the so-called AIDS antibodies (detected by the ELISA test) derive? (3) Basic immunology teaches that the HIV (foreign protein) is an antigen, which, upon entering the body, provokes an immune reaction (the production of antibodies) and the so-called, theoretical antibodies assist the leucocytes in the identification and destruction of the virus. If that is so, why is a vaccine needed to do a job that has already been accomplished?

 

In the past, when one had antibodies in their blood, it meant they had had the disease and now were totally and permanently immune. Antibodies today are not what they used to be! Consider a paragraph from the article cited: "Normally, when a virus strikes, distinctive chemical markers on its protein coat--called antigens--allow the immune system to recognize a virus as an intruder and attack it. A vaccine, in effect, forewarns the body of a potential invader by behaving like a harmless small-scale infection. By exposing the immune system to a fragment of a virus's surface, or to a whole virus that's been killed or weakened, the vaccine stimulates the immune system to create antibodies to the virus and arms it against a future, actual infection." If you comprehend the foregoing, you will ask yourself: (1) Today, people with a positive antibody test have been infected with the whole, live virus (not a particle of, or killed or weakened virus). They have produced the "specific" antibody to AIDS. However, the immunological protection (HIV-ELISA positive) does nothing in this particular case--give them the "protection" but a prognosis of death by AIDS within a few years. So then, why inject a person with more AIDS virus or particles thereof? Yes, the immune system is obviously intact; the elusive HIV did not elude the immune system as evidenced by the AIDS antibodies. Then, why would a vaccine be a solution?

 

The real answer: Billions of dollars will be allocated to AIDS research; many, many researchers will become wealthy; and one or more pharmaceutical houses will produce vaccines (with no proof of efficacy). But billions of dollars will be leached from the gullible public for the research and worthless, dangerous vaccines developed. French immunologist Daniel Zagury, in his quest for a vaccine, prepared a cowpox virus (source of smallpox vaccine) and spliced a gene from the AIDS virus onto it. This was called "One Small Step Toward a Vaccine." Zagury's viral innovation can, in effect, give you syphilis and AIDS at the same time. A real step forward! From Journal of the National Academy of Research Biochemists August, 1983 Dr. Murray shared with us: Nature Vol. 303, June 1983, reports: "The U.S. Public Health Service has found an extra pot of gold for research on AIDS. So how should the U.S. Public Health Service spend its extra $14.5 million? This article not only reveals that AIDS is a medical goldmine for public health budgets, but tells that the horrible connotations of AIDS is not in its contagion or high mortality among those affected, but from "sheer ignorance" of the cause.

 

"Unrelated to AIDS, the cited issue of Nature does give some insight into the flimsy virus theory. On page 378, in a discussion about the design of certain viruses, it says: "This construction (spherical) raises an interesting problem for a structure that must be capable of assembling itself without instructions." "Yes, the little organism of lifeless, crystalline protein is a mystery in itself. Without a central nervous system--no brain--it has an IQ of over 150 in that it can create itself without design, blueprint or instruction, slip into the human body, cross cell-membranes, enter a cell, pick out the ribosome and biochemically reprogram the ribosome to clone the invading virus."

 

"We might as well give up as no human can outsmart the virus. But, there again, maybe the virus is not a fragment of construction. Perhaps it is a fragment of destruction, such as intracellular protein catabolism--the embers of a dying cell. No, that's much too simple and would wipe out the backward retrovirus theory and its required reverse transcriptase enzyme. But, then again, perhaps the reverse transcriptase enzyme is in reality a common, ordinary intracellular proteolytic enzyme released from the lysosomes to digest dead cytoplasm or dead cellular organelles. No, still too simple; that explains away too many gold-bearing viruses with billions of dollars of research money wasted."

 

No one, as yet, knows for certain that a virus causes AIDS. Theoretically, a virus (or something of a protein nature) has been called the AIDS "VIRUS." If the protein fragment called HIV actually causes AIDS, then the questionable and inaccurate tests now available would be of questionable benefit. However, if the HIV virus theory is bunkum--and many reputable scientists have serious questions and reservations thereof--hundreds of thousands of people are being emotionally tortured by modern microbiologists--better named micromythologists.

 

Norbert Rapoza, Ph.D., A.M.A. Dept. of Drugs, apprises us: "I'm persuaded that AIDS began in Central Africa, probably as a monkey virus that jumped species--spread by mosquitoes--then, the virus may have mutated and when tribesmen moved to the cities--became involved with prostitutes--picked up other sexually transmitted diseases and they were treated for these diseases with dirty needles--two routes of transmission--sex and dirty needles." That's a wild story that should get the Nobel Prize for Medical Comedy! Groundwork for the sequel--in case it becomes a movie--is Dr. Rapoza's addendum: "Or, the original virus may have come from a hooved animal--a cow or a pig--and have been transmitted by some African's custom of cutting the neck and drinking the blood."

 

In 1987 a consultant for the World Health Organization announced in the London Times that the prevalence of smallpox vaccinations over a thirteen-year period in seven African nations actually triggered the AIDS virus outbreak in those countries. In 1985 a scientist at Harvard's School of Public Health revealed that STLV-3, an AIDS-type virus, had been found in the green monkey (Cercopithecus) whose kidney cells were routinely used to culture oral polio vaccine.

 

With the tacit approval of the medical establishment, scientists are forging ahead in a vaccine research explosion to develop a variety of "brave and promising" new super-vaccines--Omni 1987. Prospective vaccines include a genetically engineered shot for hepatitis-B, skin cancer, colo-rectal cancer, toxoplasmosis, malaria, chicken pox, RSV virus, ear infection, pneumonia, Hib-meningitis, herpes, infant diarrhea and gonorrhea. Other researchers are developing an anti-pregnancy shot. Yet another research emphasis is the "trident missile approach"--the introduction of "vaccine cocktails"--multiple antigenic inoculations of up to twenty different viral or bacterial strains at once. The American Academy of Pediatrics is very supportive of research towards the development of any prophylactic (preventive) method,: "whether it's immuno-prophylaxis vaccines or chemo-prophylaxis antibiotics, that would prevent or modify any childhood condition, disease, or illness.

 

Exemptions

Should parents opt to take up a "different model of reality," they will find that there are basically three legal routes available for exemptions to mandatory vaccinations--medical, religious and philosophical. All fifty states allow a medical exemption for high-risk children. Generally what is required is a written statement by a licensed M.D. indicating that the proposed vaccination is medically contraindicated, based on a previous adverse reaction, a family history of reactions, or a personal history of convulsions, neurological disorders, severe allergies, prematurity, or recent severe, chronic illness. On the positive side, Washington State recently licensed naturopaths to give vaccinations, which means they can also grant exemptions. In some states, including Florida, chiropractors are allowed to write medical exemptions.

 

The cracks in the orthodoxy may be gradually widening to allow parents more latitude. An exemption from vaccinations based on religious beliefs is permitted in all states except West Virginia and Mississippi. Recent favorable litigation in New York has expanded the legal interpretation of religious beliefs, granting parents further options. One group that would like to have the religious exemption removed from state laws is the AMA. In June 1987, the AMA's 406-member House of Delegates, which represents 271,000 doctors, voted to call for the elimination of the religious exemption. The House cited recent outbreaks of polio and measles among unvaccinated Christian Scientists and added, "These exemptions may play an important role in initiating and sustaining the transmission of vaccine-preventable disease."

 

The report referred to "the folly of such individual attitudes" among those taking the exemption and warned that the practice could present a problem in achieving the vaccination program goals. State medical associations were encouraged to seek removal of such exemptions in statutes,: and physicians were urged to "work with" public health officials "to inform religious groups of the benefits of vaccinations and the risk to their own health and that of the general public if they refuse to accept them."

 

An increasing number of states allow philosophical or personal exemption, in recognition of the controversy and/or violation of freedom that mandated vaccination laws impose. Generally, exempted children may not be banned from attending public schools and colleges except during local outbreaks. The best sources for obtaining a copy of your state's vaccination laws are state health officials and your public library. A phone call to the state epidemiology department may be all that it takes to get a copy mailed to you.

 

Litigation

Another option whereby parents can either redress damages sustained by their vaccinated children or may contribute to a critical litigious mass, is through taking the drug companies, or the physicians, to court. "As an attorney I believe the courts should restore the rights to parents to make these decisions for their children's well-being," contends attorney Tom Finn of New Port Richey, Florida. In 1981 Finn successfully defended Tanya James in a Virginia trial over a rejected medical exemption. Since then, Finn has counseled many parents and summarized his legal strategies and a rundown of legal precedents in a booklet, Dangers of Compulsory Immunizations: How to Avoid Them Legally (Family Fitness Press, 1978). He also argues post-damage cases in court. While this is a slow, painful route towards achieving legislative change, Finn believes a flush of successful damage suits will have a cumulative impact.

 

"Once the courts get inundated with claims, they'll start thinking twice about whether they want to keep these vaccinations mandatory. It's going to come down to dollars and cents." The kind of money it's coming down to is quite considerable. The three major vaccine manufacturer, American Cyanamid, Lederle and Wyeth, since 1984 have been deluged with hundreds of lawsuits, with claims totaling billions of dollars. The grounds for lawsuits are strictly liability, negligence or design defect, and often they are settled out of court with a ban on publicity. In Graham v. Wyeth (1988), a $3.6 million award went to the parents of Joshua Cavallo, suffering seizure, retardation and death after a DPT injection. In June 1988 Congress voted to appropriate funds to finance the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, passed in 1986. This was an important piece of legislation on several counts. Barbara Fisher's DPT coalition had struggled through hearings, lobbying, compromises, and setbacks in the Capital since 1982 to secure passage of the bill. It was an important admission, on the national level, of the legitimacy of DPT damages. The federal government earmarked $320 million (parceled out at $80 million a year for four years) to compensate parents of vaccine-damaged or killed children prior to October 1988. Parents may file a lawsuit against the drug company or apply for federal compensation at the rate of $250,000 for a vaccine-related death or $30,000 maximum for "pain and suffering."

 

Only 3,500 complaints will be tendered in cases prior to October 1988 and these will be carefully scrutinized for demonstrable causal relationships. The right of freedom of choice in vaccinations is clearly a difficult one to wrest from the hands of the medical establishment. We're dealing with a very powerful and formidable force, including the government backed pharmaceutical industry, health agencies, and organized medicine. Medical history for 200 years reveals over and over again that yesterday's doctrines are today's follies. That, of course, is of little benefit to those dying prematurely because the doctrine was fallacious and the presumptive diagnosis resulted in wrong therapy.

 

According to the NVIC, there are over 250 new vaccines being developed for everything from earaches to birth control to diarrhea, with about 100 of these already in clinical trials. Researchers are working on vaccine delivery through nasal sprays, mosquitoes, and the fruits of "transgenic" plants (genetically engineered) in which vaccine viruses are grown. With every child and adult on the planet a potential, required recipient of multiple doses, and every healthcare system and government a potential buyer, it is little wonder that countless millions of dollars are spent nurturing the growing multi-billion-dollar vaccine industry. Without public outcry, we will see more and more new vaccines required of our children and us. And while profits are readily calculable, the real human costs are being ignored. The continued denial of evidence against vaccines only perpetuates the "myths" and their negative consequences on our children and society. Aggressive and comprehensive scientific investigation is clearly warranted, yet immunization programs continue to expand in the absence of such research. Manufacturer profits are guaranteed, while accountability for the negative effects is conspicuously absent. This is sad given the available safe and effective alternatives.

 

On November 26, 2002, atttorneys for the Bush Administration asked a federal court to order that documents on hundreds of cases of autism allegedly caused by childhood vaccines be kept from the public. Department of Justice lawyers asked a special master in the US Court of Federal Claims to seal the documents, arguing that allowing their automatic disclosure would take away the right of federal agencies to decide when and how the material should be released. Attorneys for the families of hundreds of autistic children charged that the government was trying to keep the information out of civil courts, where juries might be convinced to award large judgments against vaccine manufacturers.

 

Adjuvants in Vaccines

Vaccines contain a number of substances that can be divided into the following groups:

1. Microorganisms, either bacteria or viruses, thought to be causing certain infectious diseases and which the vaccine is supposed to prevent. These are whole-cell proteins or just the broken-cell protein envelopes, and are called antigens.

 

2. Chemical substances that are supposed to enhance the immune response to the vaccine, called adjuvants.

 

3. Chemical substances which act as preservatives and tissue fixatives, which are supposed to halt any fur ther chemical reactions and putrefaction (decomposition or multiplication) of the live or attenuated (killed) biological constituents of the vaccine.

 

All these constituents of vaccines are toxic, and their toxicity may vary, as a rule, from one batch of vaccine to another.

 

Adjuvants

The desired immune response to vaccines is the production of antibodies, and adding certain substances to the vaccines enhances this. These are called adjuvants (from Latin adjuvare, "to help"). The chemical nature of adjuvants, their mode of action and their reactions (side effects) are highly variable. Some of the side effects can be ascribed to an unintentional stimulation of different mechanisms of the immune system, whereas others may reflect general adverse pharmacological reactions that are more or less expected. There are several types of adjuvants. Today the most common adjuvants for human use are aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate and calcium phosphate. However, there are a number of other adjuvants based on oil emulsions, products from bacteria (synthetic derivatives as well as liposomes) or gram-negative bacteria, endotoxins, cholesterol, fatty acids, aliphatic amines, paraffinic and vegetable oils. Recently, monophosphoryl lipid A, ISCOMs with Quil-A and syntex adjuvant formulations (SAFs) containing the threonyl derivative or muramyl dipeptide have been under consideration for use in human vaccines. Chemically, the adjuvants are a highly heterogenous group of compounds with only one thing in common: their ability to enhance the immune response--their adjuvanticity.

 

They are highly variable in terms of how they affect the immune system and how serious their adverse effects are due to the resultant hyperactivation of the immune system. The mode of action of adjuvants is described as: the formation of a depot of antigen at the site of inoculation, with slow release; the presentation of antigen to immunocompetent cells; and the production of various and different lymphokines (interleukins and tumor necrosis factor). The choice of any of these adjuvants reflects a compromise between a requirement for adjuvanticity and an acceptable low level of adverse reactions. The discovery of adjuvants dates back to 1925 and 1926, when it was shown that the antitoxin response to tetanus and diphtheria was increased by injection of these vaccines, together with other compounds such as agar, tapioca, lecithin, starch oil, saponin, or even breadcrumbs.

 

The term adjuvant has been used for any material that can increase the humoral or cellular immune response to an antigen. In the conventional vaccines, adjuvants are used to elicit an early, high and long-lasting immune response. The newly developed purified subunit or synthetic vaccines using biosynthetic, recombinant and other modern technology are poor immunogens and require adjuvants to evoke the immune response. The use of adjuvants enables the use of fewer antigens to achieve the desired immune response, and this reduces vaccine production costs. With a few exceptions, adjuvants are foreign to the body and cause adverse reactions.

 

The following are types of adjuvants:

Oil emulsions

Freund's emulsified oil adjuvants (complete and incomplete)

Arlacel A

Emulsified peanut oil adjuvant (adjuvant 65)

Mineral compounds

Bacterial compounds

Bordetella pertussis

Corynebacterium granulosum-derived P40 component

Lipopolysaccharide

Mycobacterium and its components

Cholera toxin

Liposomes

Immunostimulating complexes (ISCOMs)

Squalene

 

 

Oil Emulsions

In the 1960s, emulsified water-in-oil and water-in-vegetable-oil adjuvant preparations, used experimentally, showed special promise in providing exalted "immunity" of long duration. The development of Freund's adjuvants emerged from studies of tuberculosis. Several researchers noticed that immunological responses in animals to various antigens were enhanced by introduction into the animal of living Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In the presence of Mycobacterium, the reaction obtained was of the delayed type, transferable with leukocytes. Freund measured the effect of mineral oil in causing delayed-type hypersensitivity to killed mycobacterium. There was a remarkable increase in complement-fixing antibody response as well as in delayed hypersensitivity reaction. Freund's adjuvant consists of a water-in-oil emulsion of aqueous antigen in paraffin (mineral) ail of low specific gravity and low viscosity. Drakeol 6VR and Arlacel A (mannide monooleate) are commonly used as emulsifiers. There are two Freund's adjuvants: incomplete and complete. The incomplete Freund's adjuvant consists of water-in-oil emulsions without added mycobacteria; the complete Freund's adjuvant consists of the same components but with 5 mg. of dried, heat-killed Mycobacterium tuberculosis or butyricum added.

 

Mineral Compounds

Aluminum phosphate and aluminum hydroxide (alum) are the mineral compounds most commonly used as adjuvants in human vaccines. Calcium phosphate is another adjuvant that is used in many vaccines. Mineral salts of metals such as cerium nitrate, zinc sulphate, colloidal iron hydroxide and calcium chloride were observed to increase the antigenicity of the toxoids, but alum gave the best results. Aluminum compounds are universally used as adjuvants for the DPT vaccine. Aluminum potentiates the toxicity of mercury when present together. The aluminum adjuvants allow the slow release of antigen, prolonging the time for interaction between antigen and antigen-presenting cells and lymphocytes. Hypersensitivity reactions following their administration have been reported which could be attributed to a number of factors, one of which is the production of IgE along with IgG antibodies. Calcium phosphate adjuvant has been used for simultaneous vaccination with diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, BCG, yellow fever, measles and hepatitis-B vaccines and with allergens. It entraps antigens very efficiently and allows slow release of the antigen. Additionally, it elicits high amounts of IgG-type antibodies and much less of IgE-type (reaginic) antibodies.

 

Bacterial Products

Micro organisms in bacterial infections and the administration of vaccines containing whole killed bacteria and some metabolic products and components of various micro-organisms have been known to elicit antibody response and act as immuno-stimulants. The addition of such microorganisms, whole or their parts, are bordetella pertussis components. Corenybacterium-derived P40 component, cholera toxin and mycobacteria.

 

Squalene

Squalene is an organic polymer with some antigenic epitopes which might be shared with other organic polymers acting as immunostimulators. It has been used in experimental vaccines since 1987 and it was used in the experimental vaccines given to a great number of the participants in the Gulf War. These included those who were not deployed but received the same vaccines as those who were deployed. The adjuvant activity of non-ionic block copolymer surfactants was demonstrated when given with 2% squalene-in-water emulsion. However, this adjuvant contributed to the cascade of reactions called Gulf War Syndrome, documented in the soldiers involved in the Gulf War. The symptoms they developed included arthritis, fibromyalgia, lymphadenopathy, rashes, photosensitive rashes, malar rashes, chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, abnormal body hair loss, non-healing skin lesions, aphthous ulcers, dizziness, weakness, memory loss, seizures, mood changes, neuropsychiatric problems, anti-thyroid effects, anemia, elevated ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Raynaud's phenomenon, Sjorgren's syndrome, chronic diarrhea, night sweats and low-grade fevers.

 

This long list of reactions shows just how much damage vaccines do, particularly when potentiated by powerful immunoenhancers' such as squalene and other adjuvants. Interestingly, vaccinators as a rule, consider such problems as mysterious and/or coincidental with vaccines. Since the administration of a multitude of vaccines to the participants in the Gulf War is well documented. Veterans claim they were given many more than were even recorded, this list of observed reactions further incriminates the vaccines as causing such problems.

 

What Is In A Flu Vaccine?

Formaldehyde: a known cancer-causing agent andThimerosal: (a mercury derivative), used as a preservative in the vaccine, can cause brain injury and autoimmune disease. Also this vaccine is propagated on chicken embryo cells. The problem with using animal cells is that during serial passage of the virus thru the animal cells, animal RNA and DNA can be transferred from one host to another and undetected animal viruses may also slip past quality control testing procedures as in 1955 thru 1961 with SV40 which stands for Simian Virus #40 (meaning the 40th virus found) which has oncogenic properties (cancer causing) In 1995 a team of Swiss scientist discovered a enzyme, reverse transcriptase (Keep in mind reverse transcriptase copies RNA and DNA and is associated with retroviruses) in MMR vaccines and some influenza vaccines that had been propagated in chicken embryo. Nobody knows for sure what negative effects the mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, and other additives, also known as "adjuvants," will have on the immune system. Some of these agents are known to interfere with your DNA. How do we know that the DNA won't miscode genetic information to the cells?

 

How Effective is the Vaccine?

A new scientific study published in The Lancet reveals that influenza vaccines only prevent influenza in 1.5 out of every 100 adults who are injected with the flu vaccine.Trying to predict what influenza strains will be most prevalent during flu season is a craps shoot. The flu shot does not protect against all throat, respiratory, gastrointestinal and ear infections. It doesw not protect you against severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The flu vaccine only give temporary immunity at best. What we're not told, however, is that the flu shot actually weakens the immune system in the long run. From the study, which is entitled, “Efficacy and effectiveness of influenza vaccines: a systematic review and meta-analysis” — only about 2.7 in 100 adults get the flu in the first place!

 

Flu Vaccine production is a big guessing game. Every year the CDC has to try and predict what virus will infect people in the U.S. the following year. This is something like looking thru a crystal ball. So how accurate is this crystal ball? A vaccine supposedly contains some version of the causative agent, in a weakened form. With influenza, by the time the virus is isolated, cultured for manufacture and distributed to the population, the virus that is causing the current incidence of influenza has usually changed to a form completely unaffected by the vaccine. Michael Decker, MD of Aventis, the flu vaccine manufacturer admits: "By the time you know what's the right strain, you can't do anything about it."

 

This doesn't even take into account the unique form influenza virus takes within each person. Yet with flu shots, it's one size fits all--everyone gets the same vaccine. If it really worded, you wouldn't have to come back next year. Natural immunity is for life. Ever notice that people who get flu shots all the time keep getting the flu? Think that could have anything to do with not giving the body a chance to put immunity together itself? Doctors and pharmaceutical companies ignore the statistics of those who get the flu shot and still get the flu. Instead, we're bombarded with propaganda about how the shot helps prevent the flu. Numerous news reports during the summer of 2004 reported that the flu shots administered during 2003 were not even capable of protecting people against the influenza strains that were around last year. In good faith, millions of people took the shot thinking that it would buy them immunity when in reality all it bought them was a vial of toxins to suppress their immune system.Vaccine efficiency in elderly is usually never higher than 52-67%. Other doctors and studies declare it even lower showing a efficiency rates of 20% or less and if you keep in mind mistakes in production, transport, and storage this may even cause a decrease in effectiveness.

 

The new live virus vaccine (FLUMIST), which is squirted up the nose, was licensed by the FDA in June 2003 for use in healthy individuals between the ages of five and 50. It is not recommended for pregnant women or those with asthma, chronic lung or heart disease; chronic underlying medical conditions such as diabetes or kidney disorders; immune suppression or immune system problems; children or adolescents receiving aspirin therapy, anyone allergic to eggs; or those with a history of Guillain Barre syndrome. It should not be given simultaneously with other vaccines.

 

Recent evidence suggests that those who receive the flu shot could be contagious for weeks and spread germs to the general public. For example, it's rather interesting to see how unvaccinated people exposed to those recently given the flu shot tend to be much more susceptible to getting the flu. Not only does the shot manipulate the immune system, it contains foreign microorganisms that have the potential to breed in the body. It is ridiculous for the CDC to say that none of these germs can be contagious. There are many well-respected health experts who believe that the number of people coming down with the flu would be drastically reduced if flu shots weren't administered. One of the best ways to avoid the flu is to stay away from people who have it. This includes staying away from those who have recently received a shot.

 

FLUMIST's vaccine live virus is shed after vaccination so the vaccinated are advised to avoid close contact with immune compromised individuals for at least 21 days. Some hospital personnel are asking those recently vaccinated with FLUMIST to avoid visiting patients in hospitals to prevent the risk of transmitting the vaccine strain virus to sick patients. The most common reactions to the live flu vaccine are similar to the flu: runny nose, nasal congestion, cough, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, fever, chills, and weakness.

 

The "killed" flu vaccine, which is injected, has historically been used in individuals over 60 years old who are at high risk for dying or becoming seriously ill during a bout with the flu. However, in recent years, the CDC has been asking all age groups to get an annual flu shot and now recommends that all healthy children older than 6 months of age get an annual flu shot.

 

Contraindications for the killed flu vaccine are: fever, an impaired immune system, egg allergy, mercury allergy or a history of Guillain Barre syndrome. In the past, pregnancy was a contraindication but now the CDC recommends flu vaccine for women more than 14 weeks pregnant. However this recommendation is controversial since most flu vaccines still contain the mercury preservative, Thimerosal, and mercury has been associated with brain damage and developmental delays in fetuses whose mothers were exposed to high levels of mercury during pregnancy. The most common reactions to killed flu vaccine are fever, fatigue, painful joints and headache. The most serious reported reaction, which usually occurs within two weeks of vaccination, is Guillain Barre syndrome, an immune mediated nerve disorder characterized by muscle weakness, numbness, pain and paralysis.

 

The most intriguing deception of the public is the suggestion that the patient who gets an influenza-vaccination will not get the flu. What is generally known to the public as "flu" is an influenza-like syndrome, with symptoms like fever, chills, muscle- or joint pains, a headache, a runny nose, and general malaise. This disease, however, has got nothing to do with the real influenza; neither can it in any way be prevented by an influenza vaccination. Thus, if doctors guarantee their patients that they will not get the flu after they came in to get their jab, this is an unethical manipulation, the basis for which most probably is simply profit for both those who produce the vaccine and those who administer it. Questions have to be answered as to the efficacy and the safety of the vaccine.

 

We have all heard of the Swine flu vaccine disaster of 1976 that left over 565 cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome paralysis, as well as other neurological problems and many unexplained deaths among recently vaccinated elderly. Although vaccine manufacturers try to say today's vaccines do not carry the same risk of Guillian Barre Syndrome as with the Swine Flu vaccine, many cases are still occurring after flu vaccines as well as other neurological problems. In the early 80's Dr. John Seal of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease was heard stating "We have to assume that any and all flu vaccines are capable of causing Guillain- Barre." Flu vaccine product inserts do state that individuals who have a history of Guillian-Barre syndrome have a substantially greater likelihood of subsequently developing GBS. In 1970 Rosenberg, G.A. in a article in the New England Journal of Medicine wrote about meningoencephalitis being reported as a result of influenza vaccines. He then goes on to describe a case of a patient in which meningoencephalitis developed 12 days after vaccination with a purified influenza vaccine. In an article published in the British Medical Journal in 1971, Wells warns that influenza vaccines may be complicated by a neurological illness. He also presents cases along with a summary of seven other cases.

 

Other reactions that have been associated with past influenza vaccines are fever, malaise, myalgia, hives, angiodema, allergic asthma, systemic anaphylaxis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, encephalopathy, optic neuritis, brachial plexus neuropathy, many different types of paralysis, myletitis polyneuritis (including cases of polyradiculitis, polyradiculomyelitis, and polyganglioradiculitis), ataxia, respiratory infections, gastro-intestinal problems, eye problems , allergic thrombocytopenia, disturbed blood pressure, collapse etc.

 

Efficacy

The lack of efficacy of the vaccine is well illustrated in a Dutch article about a home for elderly people, where in spite of vaccination of two thirds of the population, a severe flu struck 49% of them, with strong morbidity (bacterial infections, pneumonia) and high mortality (10%). An important observation was that in the vaccinated population, 50% got the disease, compared to 48% of non-vaccinated. Also, complement binding antibodies for influenza-A were positive in 41% of vaccinated compared to 36% in non-vaccinated. This clearly shows that the vaccination status did not have a protective influence at all. Further laboratory investigation confirmed that antibody building against the vaccine was normal, but the causative influenza-A virus had not reacted to the vaccine the patients had been given. Comparison with a similar situation in 1988 in a home for elderly people shows that in that second case both morbidity and mortality were significantly lower, namely 37 and 3%, respectively. The main difference, however, was ... that in this second home, patients had not been vaccinated! Induction of antibodies in elderly people never is higher than 52-67% (2). Morris even declares the efficiency is not more than about 20%. Mistakes in production, transport, conservation and administration can be responsible for a further decrease of efficacy.

 

Orphans Used in Cruel Vaccine Research "Experiments"

Broadmeadows Babies' Home, an unimpressive rambling collection of brick and weatherboard buildings about 20 kilometers north of Melbourne, was an unlikely setting for cruel medical experiments, but it was there in September 1947 that researchers from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research started work to try to find a vaccination against herpes simplex. Every healthy child in permanent residence between seven and 10 months of age was selected as a human guinea pig. At first 16 babies were injected with an adult dose (one milliliter) of undiluted herpes virus. This was repeated in nine of the children two months later. Before each dose of herpes, the babies were given a preliminary injection of the vaccine, to see whether it would stop the spread of the herpes. Seven of the children showed an adverse reaction after the second preliminary injection and did not receive a full follow-up dose. The origins of the experiment--funded with a National Health and Medical Research Council grant--can be found in The Medical Journal of Australia of 5 March 1949, where the researchers published the results of an earlier "herpes in children" study.

 

Fifty-one of the 240 babies at the home were used between March 1946 and February 1947. Broadmeadows Babies' Home, opened in 1890 and run by the Roman Catholic Sisters of St Joseph, housed orphans and wards of state until they were about five years old, when they were sent to other Catholic institutions throughout Victoria. It closed in 1975. For scientists it offered an opportunity to observe the spread of the virus. Blood was repeatedly obtained by puncturing the babies' ear lobes, and cotton swabs were used to collect samples from mouth ulcers. The researchers hoped it might be possible to vaccinate other children against herpes in their first year of life. But their hopes were short-lived. According to their results, published in the Australian Journal of Experimental Biology and Medical Science in 1950, blood taken from the babies over two years showed the dead herpes virus failed to provide protection. All of the 10 vaccinated children (six babies left the home before the end of the experiment) caught herpes. Of the 10 remaining healthy children in the control group who were not vaccinated, only eight caught herpes from the infected children. "This result speaks clearly against the efficacy of vaccination," the researchers' report said. "The vaccination was of no benefit in preventing primary herpetic infection."

 

A lot of medical doctors today know enough to withhold vaccines from their own children, even though they continue to administer them to patients. Others just take the position that "we don't really know enough not to vaccinate people." This is an intellectually impotent position. If a doctor is going to stick a needle into a child's arm and inject something into the bloodstream, they should be certain that they have a thorough knowledge of all the short-term and long-term consequences. Before a parent lets a doctor do such a thing, they need to be equally well informed. The CDC's statistics on adverse reactions show that vaccinations carry significant risk. A parent needs to say to the pediatrician, "Before I let you inject my child, can you prove that vaccines are safe and necessary?"

 

Vaccines in Plants

Rather than manipulating plants to make a firmer tomato or a sweeter peach, “pharmers” insert genes that instruct a plant to manufacture pharmaceutical compounds. In the future, they envisage flu shots will be replaced by bananas. Try this corn puff. Pharmers dream that all drugs will ultimately be delivered in snacks.

 

First out of the pipeline will be vaccines. In August 2002, industry leader ProdiGene began Phase I clinical trials for a vaccine against traveler's diarrhea. Resulting from a dismal species of e.coli, the condition is also a prime cause of infant mortality in many poorer nations.

 

Instead of pursuing the regular path of cell-culturing and purification, Texas-based ProdiGene hopes to deliver a vaccine in a simple kernel of corn. To understand what is at stake here, consider the case of hepatitis-B. Worldwide, that virus kills more than 900,000 people a year, many of them in China, where the disease is at almost epidemic levels. A dose of hep-B vaccine costs around 50 cents, yet even that--in quantity--is beyond the budgets of many developing countries.

 

Besides the cost of the drug itself, vaccination is hampered by the additional expense of needles and by lack of refrigeration. Vaccines produced the traditional way cost thousands of dollars a gram, but corn can be grown very cheaply. Hoping to tap into the huge hepatitis market, ProdiGene is currently conducting field trials on a strain of transgenic corn that has been spliced with hep-B antigens which can be delivered like a vaccine simply by consuming an ear of corn.

 

Natural Alternatives

There are many very effective, natural products available to help boost your immune system and keep you well during flu season without needing to inject neurotoxic poisons and contaminants into your body. Your immune system is the only thing that prevents you from being riddled with opportunistic infections and a host of other chronic illnesses. You can’t build immunity and shield the immune system with vaccines and poisonous pharmaceutical drugs. You can only modulate the immune system through natural methods.

 

Enhancing the immune system means you don’t just boost one or two components. There are 22 different instruments or components to the immune system including T-cells, B-cells, Natural Killer cells (NK cells), macrophages, lymphocytes, leukocytes, monocytes, interferon, gamma globulin, interleukin 1,2,3,4, and other white blood cells. All 22 components must be orchestrated simultaneously like a symphony, in order to maintain optimum immunity. While there are an extensive number of natural alternatives to help boost your immune system, here is a list of some of the most powerful and effective immune enhancers being used in alternative medicine that are readily available in most health food stores:

 

• Stress Management: Elevated cortisol in the body from stress, from any source, will weaken immunity.

• Oregano Oil: This natural wonder has been used for thousands of years as an antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiseptic agent. Many people have reported that regular use of this product during the cold and flu season has prevented them from getting sick.

• Colostrum: This is the first fluid secreted by the mammary glands of mammalian mothers in the first days after giving birth. Colostrum contains high levels of protein and growth factors, as well as immune factors. It’s used around the world as one of the most powerful immune boosters known to man.

• Olive Leaf Extract: Fights all types of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites and is good for virtually any infectious disease. Some religious scholars theorize that it is olive leaves that are being referred to in Revelation 22:2 that are used for the healing of the nations. 

• Propolis: Resinous substance that bees derive from trees and mix with beeswax. Used as a health shield for the beehive, propolis has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiseptic properties. Propolis has been used for thousands of years as an immune system booster.

• Colloidal Silver: This wonder product has been around for centuries and is reported to be one of the few things that helped protect people during the height of Bubonic plague.

• Royal Jelly: Fed only to queen bees. Contains over 100 nutritional properties and has long been known to strengthen the immune system.

• Bee Pollen:  Plant pollen that bees harvest and pre-digest. Excellent for people with allergies and also strengthens the immune system.

• Aloe Vera: Contains high amounts of mucopolysaccharides which kick in the immune modulators to fight off disease.

• Homeopathic Remedies: There are some excellent homeopathic remedies that help build immunity and ward off the cold and flu. You can find many good homeopathic formulas at your local health food store or you can seek out a homeopathic specialist in your area that can custom blend formulas specifically targeted for your immune system.

• Mushroom Extracts (Shiitake, Reishi, D-Fraction Maitake): Have excellent immune-boosting properties. Shiitake increases T-cell function, Reishi has anti-tumor properties, and Maitake enhances the activity of key immune cells known as T-helper cells or CD4 cells.

• Echinacea: Excellent herb for the immune system and the lymphatic system. Echinacea has been shown to be very effective when it is cycled for 1-2 week periods throughout the cold and flu season. Early use of Echinacea at the onset of a cold or flu could help drastically diminish the duration and severity of illness.

• Vitamin C: Helps prevent free radical damage and has antifungal and astringent properties. High doses of vitamin C throughout the cold and flu season can help tremendously to ward off infection.

• Garlic: Has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiseptic properties and has long been used to fight off and prevent colds and infections. Use 3-4 cloves on salad or crushed onto bread when your immune system is in a weakened state.

• Cayenne Pepper: Is used for a litany of health problems. Cayenne Pepper heats the body up, improves circulation, and helps ward off colds, sinus infections, and sore throats. This magical substance should be used on a daily basis during the cold and flu season.

• Probiotics: Help to maintain and rebuild intestinal flora. Flora plays a key role in keeping the immune system functioning optimally.

• Essential Fatty Acids: Good fats like Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s play a major role in cellular health. Good fats also help to bring nutrients into the cell and discard waste. EFA’s also contain high amounts of antioxidants which help to protect your immune system. 

• Oxygen Supplements: Virtually all microorganisms are anaerobic, meaning they survive predominantly in the absence of oxygen. When the body’s blood oxygen is normal and the cells have adequate oxygen it’s nearly impossible to get sick. There are many good products to choose from that can be added as drops to your water.  

• Essential Oils: There are many essential oils like Frankincense, Myrrh, Spikenard, Rose Oil, Thieves, and others that provide tremendous immune system protection. Essential oils have been used for thousands of years and have much Biblical support to back up their use. They can be diffused through aromatherapy or applied to your skin and feet.  

• Zinc: An essential mineral that promotes a healthy immune system and fights free radicals. Zinc lozenges have been reported to be effective in relieving symptoms of the common cold and reducing duration of colds.

• Water: It’s very important to keep your body properly hydrated. Make sure you consume at least a ½ gallon a day of water to adequately flush out toxins and hydrate your cells.

• Rest: It’s especially important during the cold and flu season to keep from getting run down. Make sure you get at least 6-8 hours of quality sleep a night.

 

While all of these natural immune boosters can help you tremendously, nothing can replace what a good diet and exercise can do for you. You can’t feed your body garbage and turn to these natural alternatives as a last resort. Keep in mind that it costs nothing to remove all processed food from the diet. Processed foods can diminish your immune system. The more man touches a food, the less you should consume it.  Replacing processed foods with whole foods will also boost your immune system. Sugar and sweets should also be avoided at all costs, especially during the cold and flu season. Sugar severely weakens the immune system and is the fuel that foreign invaders feed on.

 

Options

Most parents feel compelled to take some disease-preventing action for their children. While there is no 100% guarantee anywhere, there are viable alternatives. Historically, homeopathy has been more effective than mainstream allopathic medicine in treating and preventing disease. In a US cholera outbreak in 1849, allopathic medicine saw a 48-60% death rate, while homeopathic hospitals had a documented death rate of only 3%. Roughly similar statistics still hold true for cholera today. Recent epidemiological studies show homeopathic remedies as equaling or surpassing standard vaccinations in preventing disease. There are reports in which populations that were treated homeopathically after exposure had a 100% success rate: none of those treated "caught" the disease. Homeopathic remedies have proved to be highly effective when taken during times of increased risk, and since they have no toxic components they have no side-effects.

 

In addition, homeopathy has been effective in reversing some of the disability caused by vaccine reactions, as well as many other chronic conditions with which allopathic medicine has had little success. Homeopathic kits for disease prevention are also available.

 

 

Vaccines and Immunizations

Possible Side-effects from Vaccines

Adenovirus vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from Adenovirus vaccine?

A vaccine, like any medicine, could cause a serious reaction. But the risk of a vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Mild Problems

Several mild problems have been reported within 2 weeks of getting the vaccine:

  • headaches, upper respiratory tract infection (about 1 person in 3)

  • stuffy nose, sore throat, joint pain (about 1 person in 6)

  • abdominal pain, cough, nausea (about 1 person in 7)

  • diarrhea (about 1 person in 10)

  • fever (about 1 person in 100)

Severe Problems

More serious problems have been reported by about 1 person in 100, within 6 months of vaccination. These problems included:

  • blood in the urine or stool

  • pneumonia

  • inflammation of the stomach or intestines

It is not clear whether these mild or serious problems were caused by the vaccine or occurred after vaccination by chance.

As with all vaccines, adenovirus vaccine will continue to be monitored for unexpected or severe problems.

Note: Adenovirus vaccine is approved for use only among military personnel.

Anthrax vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from anthrax vaccine?

Like any medicine, a vaccine could cause a serious problem, such as a severe allergic reaction.

Anthrax is a very serious disease, and the risk of serious harm from the vaccine is extremely small.

Mild Problems

  • Reactions on the arm where the shot was given:

    • Tenderness (about 1 person out of 2)

    • Redness (about 1 out of 7 men and 1 out of 3 women)

    • Itching (about 1 out of 50 men and 1 out of 20 women)

    • Lump (about 1 out of 60 men and 1 out of 16 women)

    • Bruise (about 1 out of 25 men and 1 out of 22 women)

  • Muscle aches or temporary limitation of arm movement (about 1 out of 14 men and 1 out of 10 women)

  • Headaches (about 1 out of 25 men and 1 out of 12 women)

  • Fatigue (about 1 out of 15 men, about 1 out of 8 women)

Severe Problems

  • Serious allergic reaction (very rare - less than once in 100,000 doses).

As with any vaccine, other severe problems have been reported. But these don’t appear to occur any more often among anthrax vaccine recipients than among unvaccinated people.

There is no evidence that anthrax vaccine causes long-term health problems.

Independent civilian committees have not found anthrax vaccination to be a factor in unexplained illnesses among Gulf War veterans.

DTaP vaccine side-effects
(Diphtheria, Tetanus, and acellular Pertussis)

What are the risks from DTaP vaccine?

Getting diphtheria, tetanus or pertussis disease is much riskier than getting DTaP vaccine.

However, a vaccine, like any medicine, is capable of causing serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of DTaP vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Mild Problems (Common)

  • Fever (up to about 1 child in 4)

  • Redness or swelling where the shot was given (up to about 1 child in 4)

  • Soreness or tenderness where the shot was given (up to about 1 child in 4)

These problems occur more often after the 4th and 5th doses of the DTaP series than after earlier doses.

Sometimes the 4th or 5th dose of DTaP vaccine is followed by swelling of the entire arm or leg in which the shot was given, for 1 to 7 days (up to about 1 child in 30).

Other mild problems include:

  • Fussiness (up to about 1 child in 3)

  • Tiredness or poor appetite (up to about 1 child in 10)

  • Vomiting (up to about 1 child in 50)

These problems generally occur 1 to 3 days after the shot.

Moderate Problems (Uncommon)

  • Seizure (jerking or staring) (about 1 child out of 14,000)

  • Non-stop crying, for 3 hours or more (up to about 1 child out of 1,000)

  • High fever, 105 degrees Fahrenheit or higher (about 1 child out of 16,000)

Severe Problems (Very Rare)
Serious allergic reaction (less than 1 out of a million doses) Several other severe problems have been reported after DTaP vaccine. These include:

  • Long-term seizures, coma, or lowered consciousness

  • Permanent brain damage.

These are so rare it is hard to tell if they are caused by the vaccine.

Controlling fever is especially important for children who have had seizures, for any reason. It is also important if another family member has had seizures.

You can reduce fever and pain by giving your child an aspirin-free pain reliever when the shot is given, and for the next 24 hours, following the package instructions.

Hepatitis A vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from hepatitis A vaccine?

A vaccine, like any medicine, could possibly cause serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of hepatitis A vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Getting hepatitis A vaccine is much safer than getting the disease.

Mild Problems

  • soreness where the shot was given (about 1 out of 2 adults, and up to 1 out of 6 children)

  • headache (about 1 out of 6 adults and 1 out of 25 children)

  • loss of appetite (about 1 out of 12 children)

  • tiredness (about 1 out of 14 adults)

If these problems occur, they usually last 1 or 2 days

Severe Problems

  • serious allergic reaction, within a few minutes to a few hours after the shot (very rare).

Hepatitis B vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from hepatitis B vaccine?

Hepatitis B is a very safe vaccine. Most people do not have any problems with it.

The vaccine contains non-infectious material, and cannot cause hepatitis B infection.

Some mild problems have been reported

  • Soreness where the shot was given (up to about 1 person 4)

  • Temperature of 99.9°F or higher (up to about 1
    person in 15).

Severe problems are extremely rare. Severe allergic reactions are believed to occur about once in 1.1 million doses.

A vaccine, like any medicine, could cause a serious reaction. But the risk of a vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small. More than 100 million people in the United States have been vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine.

HPV--Cervarix vaccine side-effects
(Human Papillomavirus Cervarix vaccine)

What are the risks from HPV--Cervarix vaccine?

The HPV Cervarix® vaccine has been in use around the world for several years and has been very safe.

However, any medicine could possibly cause a serious problem, such as a severe allergic reaction. The risk of any vaccine causing a serious injury, or death, is extremely small.

Life-threatening allergic reactions from vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it would be within a few minutes to a few hours after the vaccination.

Several mild to moderate problems are known to occur with this HPV vaccine. These do not last long and go away on their own.

  • Reactions where the shot was given

    • Pain (about 9 people in 10)

    • Redness or swelling (about 1 person in 2)

  • Other mild reactions

    • Fever of 99.5 or higher degrees Fahrenheit (about 1 person in 8)

    • Headache or fatigue (about 1 person in 2)

    • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or abdominal pain (about 1 person in 4)

    • Muscle or joint pain (up to 1 person in 2)

  • Fainting
    Brief fainting spells and related symptoms (such as jerking movements) can happen after any medical procedure, including vaccination. Sitting or lying down for about 15 minutes after a vaccination can help prevent fainting and injuries caused by falls. Tell your doctor if the patient feels dizzy or light-headed, or has vision changes or ringing in the ears.

Like all vaccines, HPV vaccines will continue to be monitored for unusual or severe problems.

HPV--Gardasil vaccine side-effects
(Human Papillomavirus Gardasil vaccine)

What are the risks from HPV--Gardasil vaccine?

The HPV-Gardasil® vaccine has been used in the U.S. and around the world for six years and has been very safe.

However, any medicine could possibly cause a serious problem, such as a severe allergic reaction. The risk of any vaccine causing a serious injury, or death, is extremely small.

Life-threatening allergic reactions from vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it would be within a few minutes to a few hours after the vaccination.

Several mild to moderate problems are known to occur with this HPV vaccine. These do not last long and go away on their own.

  • Reactions in the arm where the shot was given:

    • Pain (about 8 people in 10)

    • Redness or swelling (about 1 person in 4)

  • Fever:

    • Mild (100° F) (about 1 person in 10)

    • Moderate (102° F) (about 1 person in 65)

  • Other problems

    • Headache (about 1 person in 3)

    • Fainting. Brief fainting spells and related symptoms (such as jerking movements) can happen after any medical procedure, including vaccination. Sitting or lying down for about 15 minutes after a vaccination can help prevent fainting and injuries caused by falls. Tell your doctor if the
      patient feels dizzy or light-headed, or has vision changes or ringing in the ears.

Like all vaccines, HPV vaccines will continue to be monitored for unusual or severe problems.

Influenza (inactivated) vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from inactivated influenza vaccine?

A vaccine, like any medicine, could possibly cause serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of a vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Serious problems from inactivated influenza vaccine are very rare. The viruses in inactivated influenza vaccine have been killed, so you cannot get influenza from the vaccine.

Mild Problems

  • soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given

  • hoarseness; sore, red or itchy eyes; cough

  • fever

  • aches

  • headache

  • itching

  • fatigue

If these problems occur, they usually begin soon after the shot and last 1-2 days.

Moderate Problems

Young children who get inactivated flu vaccine and pnemococcal vaccine (PCV13) at the same time appear to be at increased risk for seizures caused by fever. Ask your doctor for more information.

Tell your doctor if a child who is getting flu vaccine has ever had a seizure.

Severe Problems

  • Life-threatening allergic reactions from vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it is usually within a few minutes to a few hours after the shot.

  • In 1976, a type of inactivated influenza (swine flu) vaccine was associated with Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS). Since then, flu vaccines have not been clearly linked to GBS. However, if there is a risk of GBS from current flu vaccines, it would be no more than 1 or 2 cases per million people vaccinated. This is much lower than the risk of severe influenza, which can be prevented by vaccination.

The safety of vaccines is always being monitored. For more information, visit: Vaccine Safety Monitoring and Vaccine Safety Activities.

One brand of inactivated flu vaccine, called Afluria, should not be given to children 8 years of age or younger, except in special circumstances. A related vaccine was associated with fevers and fever-related seizures in young children in Australia. Your doctor can give you more information.

Influenza (live) vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from LAIV?

A vaccine, like any medicine, could possibly cause serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of a vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Live influenza vaccine viruses very rarely spread from person to person. Even if they do, they are not likely to cause illness.

LAIV is made from weakened virus and does not cause influenza. The vaccine can cause mild symptoms in people who get it (see below).

Mild Problems
Some children and adolescents 2-17 years of age have reported:

  • runny nose, nasal congestion or cough

  • headache and muscle aches

  • fever

  • wheezing

  • abdominal pain or occasional vomiting or diarrhea

Some adults 18-49 years of age have reported:

  • runny nose or nasal congestion

  • sore throat

  • cough, chills, tiredness/weakness

  • headache

Severe Problems

  • Life-threatening allergic reactions from vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it is usually within a few minutes to a few hours after the vaccination.

  • If rare reactions occur with any product, they may not be identified until thousands, or millions, of people have used it. Millions of doses of LAIV have been distributed since it was licensed, and the vaccine has not been associated with any serious problems.

The safety of vaccines is always being monitored. For more information, visit: Vaccine Safety Monitoring and Vaccine Safety Activities.

JE-IXIARO vaccine side-effects
(Japanese Encephalitis - IXIARO)

What are the risks from Japanese encephalitis vaccine?

Like any medicine, a vaccine could cause a serious reaction. But the risk of JE vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Mild Problems

  • pain or tenderness where the shot was given (about 1 person in 4)

  • redness or swelling where the shot was given (about 1 person in 20)

  • headache, muscle aches (about 1 person in 5)

Moderate or Severe Problems

Studies of this vaccine have shown severe reactions to be very rare. Like all vaccines, it will continue to be monitored for serious problems.

MMR vaccine side-effects
(Measles, Mumps, and Rubella)

What are the risks from MMR vaccine?

A vaccine, like any medicine, is capable of causing serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions.

The risk of MMR vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Getting MMR vaccine is much safer than getting measles, mumps or rubella.

Most people who get MMR vaccine do not have any serious problems with it.

Mild Problems

  • Fever (up to 1 person out of 6)

  • Mild rash (about 1 person out of 20)

  • Swelling of glands in the cheeks or neck (about 1 person out of 75)

If these problems occur, it is usually within 7-12 days after the shot. They occur less often after the second dose.

Moderate Problems

  • Seizure (jerking or staring) caused by fever (about 1 out of 3,000 doses)

  • Temporary pain and stiffness in the joints, mostly in teenage or adult women (up to 1 out of 4)

  • Temporary low platelet count, which can cause a bleeding disorder (about 1 out of 30,000 doses)

Severe Problems (Very Rare)

  • Serious allergic reaction (less than 1 out of a million doses)

  • Several other severe problems have been reported after a child gets MMR vaccine, including:

    • Deafness

    • Long-term seizures, coma, or lowered consciousness

    • Permanent brain damage

    These are so rare that it is hard to tell whether they are caused by the vaccine.

MMRV vaccine side-effects
(Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella)

What are the risks from MMRV vaccine?

A vaccine, like any medicine, is capable of causing serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of MMRV vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Getting MMRV vaccine is much safer than getting measles, mumps, rubella, or chickenpox.

Most children who get MMRV vaccine do not have any problems with it.

Mild Problems

  • Fever (about 1 child out of 5).

  • Mild rash (about 1 child out of 20).

  • Swelling of glands in the cheeks or neck (rare).

If these problems happen, it is usually within 5-12 days after the first dose. They happen less often after the second dose.

Moderate Problems

  • Seizure caused by fever (about 1 child in 1,250 who get MMRV), usually 5-12 days after the first dose. They happen less often when MMR and varicella vaccines are given at the same visit as separate shots (about 1 child in 2,500 who get these two vaccines), and rarely after a 2nd dose of MMRV.

  • Temporary low platelet count, which can cause a bleeding disorder (about 1 child out of 40,000).

Severe Problems (Very Rare)
Several severe problems have been reported following MMR vaccine, and might also happen after MMRV. These include severe allergic reactions (fewer than 4 per million), and problems such as:

  • Deafness.

  • Long-term seizures, coma, lowered consciousness.

  • Permanent brain damage.

Because these problems occur so rarely, we can’t be sure whether they are caused by the vaccine or not.

Meningococcal vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from meningococcal vaccines?

A vaccine, like any medicine, could possibly cause serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of the meningococcal vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Brief fainting spells and related symptoms (such as jerking or seizure-like movements) can follow a vaccination. They happen most often with adolescents, and they can result in falls and injuries.

Sitting or lying down for about 15 minutes after getting the shot - especially if you feel faint - can help prevent these injuries.

Mild Problems

As many as half the people who get meningococcal vaccines have mild side effects, such as redness or pain where the shot was given.

If these problems occur, they usually last for 1 or 2 days. They are more common after MCV4 than after MPSV4.

A small percentage of people who receive the vaccine develop a fever.

Severe Problems

Serious allergic reactions, within a few minutes to a few hours of the shot, are very rare.

PCV13 vaccine side-effects
(Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine)

What are the risks from PCV13?

Any medicine, including a vaccine, could possibly cause a serious problem, such as severe allergic reaction. However, the risk of any vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

In studies, most reactions after PCV13 were mild. They were similar to reactions reported after PCV7, which has been in use since 2000. Reported reactions varied by dose and age, but on average:

  • About half of children were drowsy after the shot, had a temporary loss of appetite, or had redness or tenderness where the shot was given.

  • About 1 out of 3 had swelling where the shot was given.

  • About 1 out of 3 had a mild fever, and about 1 in 20 had a higher fever (over 102.2°F).

  • Up to about 8 out of 10 became fussy or irritable.

Life-threatening allergic reactions from vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it would be within a few minutes to a few hours after the vaccination.

Polio vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from IPV?

Some people who get Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV) get a sore spot where the shot was given. The vaccine used today has never been known to cause any serious problems, and most people don’t have any problems at all with it.

However, a vaccine, like any medicine, could cause serious problems, such as a severe allergic reaction or even death. The risk of a polio vaccine causing serious harm is extremely small.

Rabies vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from rabies vaccine?

A vaccine, like any medicine, is capable of causing serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of a vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small. Serious problems from rabies vaccine are very rare.

Mild Problems

  • soreness, redness, swelling, or itching where the shot was given (30% - 74%)

  • headache, nausea, abdominal pain, muscle aches, dizziness (5% - 40%)

Moderate Problems

  • hives, pain in the joints, fever (about 6% of booster doses)

Other nervous system disorders, such as Guillain Barré syndrome (GBS), have been reported after rabies vaccine, but this happens so rarely that it is not known whether they are related to the vaccine.

NOTE: Several brands of rabies vaccine are available in the United States, and reactions may vary between brands. Your provider can give you more information about a particular brand.

Rotavirus vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from rotavirus vaccine?

A vaccine, like any medicine, could possibly cause serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of any vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

A virus (or parts of a virus) called porcine circovirus is present in both rotavirus vaccines. There is no evidence that this virus is a safety risk or causes illness in humans. For more information, the rotavirus vaccination page.

Most babies who get rotavirus vaccine do not have any problems with it.

Mild Problems
Babies might become irritable, or have mild, temporary diarrhea or vomiting after getting a dose of rotavirus vaccine.

Serious Problems
Some studies have shown a small increase in cases of intussusception within a week after the first dose of rotavirus vaccine. Intussusception is a type of bowel blockage that is treated in a hospital. In some cases surgery might be required. The estimated risk is 1 intussusception case per 100,000 infants.

Td vaccine (Adult Tetanus & Diphtheria) AND
Tdap vaccine (Combined Tetanus, Diphtheria & Pertussis)

What are the risks from Tdap and Td vaccines?

With a vaccine, as with any medicine, there is always a small risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction or other serious problem.

Brief fainting spells and related symptoms (such as jerking movements) can happen after any medical procedure, including vaccination. Sitting or lying down for about 15 minutes after a vaccination can help prevent fainting and injuries caused by falls. Tell your doctor if the patient feels dizzy or light-headed, or has vision changes or ringing in the ears.

Getting tetanus, diphtheria or pertussis would be much more likely to lead to severe problems than getting either vaccine. Problems reported after Td and Tdap vaccines are listed below.

Problems reported after Td and Tdap vaccines are listed below.

Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from chickenpox vaccine?

A vaccine, like any medicine, is capable of causing serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. The risk of chickenpox vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Getting chickenpox vaccine is much safer than getting chickenpox disease. Most people who get chickenpox vaccine do not have any problems with it. Reactions are usually more likely after the first dose than after the second.

Mild Problems

  • Soreness or swelling where the shot was given (about 1 out of 5 children and up to 1 out of 3 adolescents and adults)

  • Fever (1 person out of 10, or less)

  • Mild rash, up to a month after vaccination (1 person out of 25). It is possible for these people to infect other members of their household, but this is extremely rare.

Note: The first dose of MMRV vaccine has been associated with rash and higher rates of fever than MMR and varicella vaccines given separately. Rash has been reported in about 1 person in 20 and fever in about 1 person in 5. Seizures caused by a fever are also reported more often after MMRV. These usually occur 5-12 days after the first dose.

Moderate Problems

  • Seizure (jerking or staring) caused by fever (very rare).

Severe Problems

  • Pneumonia (very rare)

Other serious problems, including severe brain reactions and low blood count, have been reported after chickenpox vaccination. These happen so rarely experts cannot tell whether they are caused by the vaccine or not. If they are, it is extremely rare.

Yellow Fever vaccine side-effects

What are the risks from Yellow Fever vaccine?

A vaccine, like any medicine, could cause a serious reaction. But the risk of a vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely low.

Mild Problems

Yellow fever vaccine has been associated with fever, and with aches, soreness, redness or swelling where the shot was given.

These problems occur in up to 1 person out of 4. They usually begin soon after the shot, and can last up to a week.

Severe Problems

  • Severe allergic reaction to a vaccine component (about 1 person in 55,000).

  • Severe nervous system reaction (about 1 person in 125,000).

  • Life-threatening severe illness with organ failure (about 1 person in 250,000). More than half the people who suffer this side effect die.

    These last two problems have never been reported after a booster dose.
