Vaccine Safety

The National Vaccine Information Center

Vaccine Wars is not a term those of us concerned about the safety of what is mandated by our government to be put into our bodies and the bodies of our children. The branded term VACCINE WARS was a brilliant public relations spin designed to put those of us concerned about our health and the health of our children into a box labeled Crazy Fringe People.

I am not crazy nor am I fringe. I am for rigorous safety testing and more unbiased research in our food supply, our environment, and especially for anything that is mandated by our Government for me or my children to be injected into our bodies. That just seems like common sense.

Unfortunately, we live in a world where some industries believe in profits over people, the environment and our planet. In 1987 the Institute of Medicine handed down a landmark proceedings declaring that vaccines are “unavoidable unsafe” and therefore we could not hold drug companies who produce the vaccines liable in the cases of injury and death. Nor could we hold the doctors who administered them, the hospitals and medicals centers where they were given, responsible in the case of injury and death.

That decision led to the opening of the flood gates for pharmaceutical manufacturers to hang their future profits on the making of new vaccines for everything condition imaginable, and then preselling it to an unsuspecting and gullible public. The vast, vast majority of vaccines are not for communicable diseases (the real reason they were invented was to protect populations in times of large communicable outbreaks such as smallpox).

Dr. Gary Kohls writes a very informative article. He states there are 271 new vaccines in Big Pharma’s Pipeline they are developing as they can be added to the mandatory 69 doses of vaccines a child must have before reaching 18 years of age. ( With Dr. Kohls’ permission, this is a brief excerpt.

Whenever the FDA signals that it is ready to grant marketing approval for a new vaccine or drug, the first step for the pharmaceutical company’s marketing department is to promote an “educational” advertising campaign designed to instill fear in parents (and their pediatricians) about the horrible illnesses (albeit previously unknown, benign or rare) that even us doctors hadn’t yet recognized as being significant Up until recently, most of us physicians have gone along with the fear-mongering that makes our practices busier while it also makes billions of dollars in profits for some unworthy CEO or Wall Street investment banker, hedge fund manager or mutual fund investor – all at the expense of America’s precious and vulnerable children who are at high risk of being sickened along the way.

The TV commercials, medical journal articles and drug representatives will be trying to educate us about a new, unaffordable vaccine that will somehow be squeezed into an already crowded and potentially deadly group of shots that America’s already at-risk-of-vaccine-injuries infants will now be receiving at their next well-child (perhaps soon to become chronically ill) check-up.

So the real question is with all our mandatory vaccines and our pharmaceutical industry cranking out pills for every condition under the sun, we should be the healthiest country on the planet. But we are not. The United States ranks thirty-seventh in health compared to other countries. So that means that 36 other countries’ populations are healthier than we are in the U.S. Interestingly enough we also spend at least twice as much as any other country on our health care. So cost certainly doesn’t insure quality.

Every year the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) managed by the Centers for Disease Control and the Federal Drug Association reports more than 30,000 vaccine related injuries annually. 30,000 that are reported!

At this point, there is insufficient data available to determine whether or not vaccines provide a net benefit or are safe and there’s no way to determine the risk of vaccine injury or death for any given individual.  Individual freedom of choice provides a necessary “check and balance” to the pharmaceutical industry’s overreaching, profit-driven influence over public healthcare policy and law.

Become educated. Do your research. With the Internet and Google and other search engines, you can form your own opinion. Don’t let pharmaceutical advertising form your opinions for you. They won’t be there for you if you or your child is vaccine injured. Your Government won’t be there for you if you or your child is vaccine injured. Remember they are not liable because vaccinations are “unavoidably unsafe”.

I certainly am not an “anti-vaxxer” nor am I at “war” with anyone. I am for VACCINE SAFETY, with continued rigorous testing by independent research groups with no ties to the pharmaceutical industry. 30,000 vaccine injured children and people a year says that something in the genetic makeup or environmental factors made them more susceptible to injury. Why can’t we test to know that ahead of time? Well it is a cost issue, of course. However if you thought your child might be susceptible to a lifetime vaccine injury, you would certainly want them tested.

This is a personal choice every individual should be able to make for themselves and their families according to what their conscience and heart tells you.

Below is a short 5-minute animated video called “Olivia”. Please take time to watch it. Also there are two links to documentaries that have been made on the need for less vaccinating, requiring fewer doses at a time especially to newborns and the 18 to 24 month schedule.

I have also included links you may wish to check out. The safety and health of yourself and your family is in your hands. Don’t let others with vested interests in profits make those decisions for you. Barbara Loe Fisher, Founder and Executive Director, at The National Vaccine Information Center is a trusted resource.

Focus for Health
Vaccines and the Vulnerable ChildEileen Iorio, Guest Contributor
As parents, we all come to this topic with one thing in common: the desire to do what’s best for our children; to shield them from as many dangers in this world as we can. But what if we are not told about certain risks and unwittingly leave our children vulnerable to harm? Vaccination is the one intervention that every healthy baby is expected to receive, beginning when they are only a few hours old. There is no debate that some children will be harmed, and yet very little has been done to try to identify and protect the ‘vulnerable child.’
