Why we believe the Vaxxed bus stories

A blog came out titled “Why I don’t believe the Vaxxed bus stories” by Kathy.  She writes a blog in favor of vaccines.  Her description of herself from the blog:

“I am a long-time vaccine advocate. I am a mother, educator, and scientist. You can read here about what started me on this vaccine advocacy journey.  While I don’t like to use my children for attention, I do believe that story is important to share. I also believe it is valid for me to note that I have a child on the autism spectrum.  My interest in vaccines and autism advocacy comes from the heart.  I will always read respectful comments and consider them thoughtfully. My goal is to educate people about the risks and benefits of vaccines, according to international scientific consensus. I have no ties to pharmaceutical companies whatsoever and never have.”


Reply to Kathy’s blog:

If you haven’t seen or heard of the Vaxxed bus, it travels the country providing parents a way to tell their stories of vaccine injury.  The bus came about after the film Vaxxed was released, you can see it here:  Vaxxed on Amazon    Vaxxed Action Items

Vaxxed details the account of Dr. Brian Hooker and Dr. William Thompson of the CDC.   The Centers for Disease Control are clear in their stance on vaccines and have asserted many times that vaccines are safe.  Dr. William Thompson called Dr. Brian Hooker seemingly out of the blue.  Those phone calls changed our outlook on the CDC, vaccines and the integrity of “peer-reviewed papers.”  Dr. Hooker recorded the phone calls and released some of those in the Vaxxed movie.   This movie was specifically about his issue but it spawned a movement.  Part of that movement is the Vaxxed bus.

The Vaxxed bus has over 6,000 names on it now, all vaccine injured or passed away after receiving a vaccine.  Doctors, nurses, scientist and parents have visited the Vaxxed bus.  Here are a few of their stories: We Are Vaxxed Videos

Rather than pick apart the writer’s critique of each story that she focused on, I will just say this, she isn’t on the bus, she wasn’t in the hospitals, she has never met the parents, she has no medical degree and has no idea of what goes on during interview or pre-interview on the Vaxxed bus.   All of that being said, how can she determine whether vaccines played a role in the child’s health or not?  She can’t.  She can state her opinion based on what she’s read and that’s fair but she cannot say these stories are “fake”.


SIDS:   The writer moves on to SIDS and infant mortality being at an all time low.  She goes on to show graphs and info on why we are doing great and there is nothing to be concerned about.  I am concerned.  We are supposed to be one of the most advanced countries in the world medically.   Can we attribute the decline to the “Back to Sleep Campaign” as the writer suggests?   National Recommendations for SIDS Prevention  

Does back sleeping awareness show a clear reduction in SIDS from place to place?  No, it doesn’t.  If all of the countries listed have the same campaigns and an average number of parents are doing what is recommended yet the SIDS rate is different in each place by a wide amount, what else could contribute to that?  What are the vaccination practices for these countries?  Let’s take a look.  Study Vaccines / SIDS

sids chartsids chart 2sids.gif

We give more vaccines earlier in life than most other countries.  We have a higher SIDS rate than most other countries.  The writer goes on to show this chart and claims the US is closer to the “better countries than the worst”.   We are sitting between Serbia and Croatia.  Both have mandatory vaccination policies but we still hold the record in the number of vaccines given before age 1.  I know, that doesn’t matter.  No proof at all.   SIDS must be because mom’s are doing something wrong.

An interesting read, written by Dr. Kelly Brogan on the topic:  Could this be Driving the Epidemic of Sudden Infant Death (SIDS)?


Polly and the crew: The writer asks why Polly Tommey (Vaxxed bus leader) doesn’t know there is no autism epidemic.  She claims that the diagnosis change is responsible for much of the rising rate. Polly’s son Billy was injured by his baby vaccines and is autistic.  That was over 18 years ago.  I have never met Polly personally but will this weekend.  From everything I’ve heard about this woman, she’s wonderful.  She cares.  She listens.  She has left her family for a year and taken on a massive project.  This isn’t something people do for fun.  We’ve been called insane or conspiracy theorist for years because we believe vaccines can injure.  Polly put herself on the front line for people like me.  Thank you, Polly. And Del, Andy, Suzanne, Anu, Josh, Patrick and Sheila. You are our heroes. ❤️


AUTISM: There is far too much on vaccines & autism to cover in one blog post.  For the sake of our sanity and time, we will only go into one area at this time. 

Let’s look at the latest viral issue – Somali children and Autism.  We’ve only heard about this epidemic because of the measles outbreak of 2017.  The Somali community slowed down the rates of vaccination when the rate of autism grew to 1 in 32.  Prior to 2008 and seeing all the cases of autism, the Somali people vaccinated around 92%.  Many Somali parents say the changes happened directly after vaccination. The autism issue has been around for many years in the Somali community in MN (and other states).  In 2010 a study was done to determine the prevalence.  It was released in 2013.  Univ of MN Study    Longer version of study

Here is a video from the parents.  Autism: A Somali-American Story   It’s been said the Somali community stopped vaccinating because they meet with Dr. Andrew Wakefield.  Here is a father who says that simply isn’t true.  Somali dad talks autism and vaccines  Another video done by VICE titled “Anti-Vaxxers and Fear Caused Minnesota’s Measles Outbreak.” Anti-Vaxxers and Fear   This shows both sides – leaning more toward the pro side.  What do you think?

Vaccines are rare in Somalia, with an estimated 30% of children even having access to them. And the Somali schedule, outlined by the World Health Organization, contains roughly half the number of vaccines compared to the U.S. schedule. When Somali immigrants were told that all the vaccines given here were necessary to protect their children, they confidently complied.  Autism One article (parents perspective)

Because many Somali parents had never heard of autism and being different is taboo in their culture, many parents have hidden their children.  Epidemiologist Michael Rosanoff says “It shouldn’t be overlooked that we may be underestimating autism in the Somali community”.  Underestimating?

somali kids


STORIES: The writer then goes on to pick apart a few of the over 6,000 stories that have been told on the bus.  I won’t go into any detail there.  I don’t know the parents, the child, the medical history, the situation or anything that would qualify me to judge these people.  Shame on the writer for even trying to discredit them.


DIAGNOSIS:  We can move on to autism not being an epidemic but only rising due to the changes in diagnosis.

Let’s go over the DSM (the test or tool used to diagnose disorders).  The criteria for autism: Autism – DSM-5   dsm5 autism

DSM-5 criteria for what is now called Intellectual Disability, formerly Mental Retardation Intellectual Disability (formerly Mental Retardation)

dsm5 MR

Please read the last line – This disorder is considered chronic and often co-occurs with other mental conditions like depression, attention-deficits/hyperactivity disorder, and autism spectrum disorder.   Co-occurs.  That means one would get a diagnosis of both Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disability, they are not one in the same.  That change does not account for the increased prevalence in Autism.   Here is what the writer said in the blog “Mental retardation diagnosis was REPLACED by ID or Autism. That isn’t correct.   Below is the graphic from the writers blog:

Kathy

Rather than assume I was right, I called the American Psychiatric Association at 703-907-8640.  I asked them if Intellectual Disability and Autism spectrum disorder were two completely different diagnoses.   Answer – yes, they are two totally different diagnoses and you can have both but they are not interchangeable.  I asked if somehow they are all being put under Autism Spectrum Disorder and she said “No.  They aren’t the same. ID did replace MR and can be diagnosed along with autism but not in place of it.”  The website which lists the screening tools, fact sheets, changes and more.  www.psychiatry.org  – info is listed under DSM.


The debate on whether or not to vaccinate has been around since vaccination began.  This is not a new trend.  Jenny McCarthy didn’t start it.  Andrew Wakefield isn’t the Godfather of our movement (but we do love him).  I believe people like Kathy believe everything they are saying, just as I do.  I believe that Kathy is firm in her stance on vaccination just as I am on my stance not to vaccinate.   Unfortunately, it’s come to a point in this debate that we can no longer have civil conversations.  We have pages and groups that have one purpose:  harass, ridicule and cause issues for parents who question the safety of vaccination.   All of us who run groups, pages or sites have a responsibility to provide accurate information.  A major complaint I have with these groups is that false info runs rampant (both sides).  Vaccines are not without risk.  Vaccines aren’t a one size fits all.  Vaccines aren’t going to kill and maim every child.  I have two children, one fully vaccinated and one vaccine injured.  Many of us are that way and we trusted that nothing bad would come of vaccinating.  We were wrong.  We’ve seen it happen and most of us were afraid to speak up.  We doubted what we saw with our own eyes.  Most of us had nowhere to turn and no one to talk to about this.  That’s where social media comes in.  Community.  People who can validate our experience.  BUT it’s also where fear can be pushed or bullying can happen.  We’ve got to work on encouraging parents to do the research and to trust themselves.  If you don’t understand the disease then you will fear it.  If you don’t understand what an antigen is, you will believe anything we tell you.  Read.  Talk to doctors, chiropractors, friends, family.  Then read some more.  If you don’t understand what you are reading, find someone who does.  Someone without a strong opinion either way.  But you must do the work.  Not vaccinating isn’t a decision I took easily and you shouldn’t either.

The Antifas of the Vaccination debate

Most of us have heard about Antifa.  They are a far-left militant political group.  They use violence and bullying to get people to succumb to their way.  They will scream you down, mob attack, they aren’t afraid of violence or the police.  In fact, they often attack police.

What do they have to do with vaccination?  Directly, not much but I live in Boston and this weekend there was an event titled “Freedom Speech Rally”.   Follow me on this.  I will get to the connection.

The organizer of the event was a college kid.  He invited lots of different people and groups to speak, including a female Deaconess who promotes marijuana, Boston Black Lives Matter reps and Senate Candidates.  His idea was to have all platforms and people speak, express their views and go on about their day.  Unfortunately, because of a tragedy in Charlottesville earlier in the month, the event was labeled a White Supremacist rally.  Somehow, the rumors began to spread that the  KKK and Neo Nazi’s would be attending despite repeated statements from the organizers.   The media took this and ran.  Soon, many were outraged that the KKK and Neo-Nazis would DARE step foot in our city.  They planned counter-protests and the numbers grew rapidly.   The Mayor held a press conference denouncing hate.  Some organizations were using this rally to raise donations for reparations: “the local Black Lives Matter chapter, which has been soliciting gifts to its Strategic Resistance and Response Fund, has already raised almost $30,000″.

Organizers of a counterprotest to what’s being called a free speech rally in Boston say they expect as many as 20,000 to 30,000 people to join them.

Boston-area leaders of Black Livers Matter said Friday that they don’t buy claims that the rally planned for Saturday is not about white supremacy.

The Boston Free Speech Coalition says its rally Saturday has nothing to do with white nationalism. It also says it’s not affiliated with the organizers of a rally in Charlottesville last weekend that erupted into violence and left one person dead.

Boston Police and the Mayor put strict guidelines in place, fully expecting trouble:

Police say backpacks that are brought to the rally will be subject to search and the following items will be banned:

  • Firearms, knives, weapons, sharp objects, shields or fireworks
  • Pop-up tents or canopies
  • Cans, glass containers, pre-mixed beverages or alcoholic beverages
  • Wagons or pull carts
  • Coolers
  • Drones
  • Pets (excluding certified service animals)
  • Grills, propane tanks or open flames
  • Bicycles
  • Flag poles, bats, clubs and sticks, including signs attached to sticks
  • Any athletic equipment or other item which could be used as a weapon

“If anything gets out of hand,” Walsh adds, “we will shut it down.”

More photos from the rally:

 

See, the counter-protestors bought into the myth that this rally was about White Supremacy.   Some came in fully outraged.  Some came in hoping to change minds.  Other came in with deeply set views on what “free speech” should mean.

Here is a Senate candidate’s tweet after the rally.  His photo is attached.  I ask you, does this look like hate?

doctor

Have you ever come across some of the pro vaccine advocates on Twitter or Facebook?  Let’s take a look (for the sake of not offending, I’ve only included a few mild ones).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

There are well-intended people on the pro vaccination side.  They believe what they’ve been told and they feel vaccines indeed save lives.  I will give them a pass.  Where I draw the line is threats, insults and trying to demean and discredit concerned, educated parents.  The Boston Herald called for Anti-Vaccine Parents and promoters to be hanged.  Many agreed.

Antifa doesn’t want others being heard.

Pro Vaccine advocates don’t want us heard.

Fortunately for us, we still have freedom of speech in this country (for now).  The most important thing that was missed during the Boston Rally was research and understanding.  Yes, we need to deal with hate speech on all levels but shouting others down and silencing their voice is not the answer.

What are a few misconceptions are out there about us?  What can we do to have our voices heard?

#1 – All parents who question vaccine safety are anti-vaxxers!   Untrue.  There is a broad spectrum of parents who question vaccine safety.  Yes, there are those who do not vaccinate at all.  Those who did and now don’t (regret parents), those who delay and those who space them out.

#2 – The whole Anti-Vaccine movement started with either Jenny McCarthy or Andrew Wakefield.  Untrue.  While both of those people have been invaluable in bringing a voice to people who felt they didn’t have one, the AV movement has been around since the creation of vaccines – look up William Tebb, a British activist who fought against vaccination in the 1870s and beyond.   Penalties of refusing vaccination have been around since the beginning as well.  The Vaccination Act of 1853 ordered mandatory vaccination with penalties for refusing.  In 1885 the town of Leicester had an anti-vaccination march estimated 100k people.

#3 – Parents who don’t vaccinate are usually white and rich or dirty and uneducated or conspiracy theorist.  Untrue.   The stereotypes don’t work in politics, race relations or vaccination.  We’ve got to stop putting everyone in 1 box.  There are people all over and from every background questioning vaccination from single moms in Idaho to Doctors in NYC.

#4 – “If we yell over them and make them feel stupid, they will start vaccinating”.  A common tactic is to throw the word “science” into the conversation.  There are pages like “Do you even Science, Bro?”  that take aim at Anti-Vaccine people and views.  Making fun of or making threats to people who only have their children’s safety in mind is unlikely to work.  AV parents haven’t just jumped into this arena without knowing the risks and ridicule we face.  Bullying and shaming will not work.

It is not our job to convince anyone of anything.  It is our right to voice our concerns and make informed decisions about our own children.  That right is being threatened by those who cannot or will not hear us.  Free speech may seem like it’s something trivial when it comes to “shutting down hate” but what about when it comes for us?

No, vaccines aren’t mandatory!

Back to school time means vaccination appointments for most of the US population.  We run around making sure we’ve got the paperwork to prove our kids are up to date.

What we fail to realize is there are only 3 states where vaccines are required (unless you have a medical exemption).   Yes, that’s right – you have options.

Most states have a Religious Exemption and some states also have a Philosophical Exemption.

exemptions

What do you need to do for a Religious or Philosophical exemption?  Most times it’s simply writing out or filling out a sheet of paper and handing it in to the school in place of the vaccination sheet.  Some schools will push back and say they don’t accept exemptions.  Few things to know:

  1. If a school accepts any state funds at all, they have to accept your legal exemption (except CA, WV and MS).
  2. Some privately funded schools also accept exemptions.  Call them and ask.  Some will say they don’t know.  Ask to speak to someone who knows.  Contact someone in your area at:  www.nvic.org
  3. Information on your state can be found here: http://www.nvic.org/Vaccine-Laws/state-vaccine-requirements.aspx

When you make the decision to forgo vaccination, you will likely be pressured by your pediatrician.  You need to be firm in those instances and state your reasoning, let them know you’ve done your research and have made your decision.  Case closed.  Many pediatric offices are now refusing to see unvaccinated (or kids who’s parents have stopped and they are only partially vaccinated).  I believe this is due to financial reasons but that’s another post for another day.

Vaccines, which side of history will you be on?

If you've ever offered an opinion (pro or against) then you know, it's one of the most fiercely debated topics of our time.

Some parents are torn and looking for answers.  Others are absolutely convinced that vaccines are a God send and others would rather die than inject themselves or their children.  I don't know that this topic will ever be one we can discuss at the playground, over coffee or even on Facebook without walking away in anger.  People are stuck in what they believe and what they've been told.  I was. Then, my eyes were opened.  When I began my research into the topic, I was met with some really crazy accusations.  I was told I was following a porn star and a debunked doctor.  I had no idea who either of these people was but I soon found out.   Let's clear some things up before we move on:

  1.  Jenny McCarthy didn't start the anti vaccine movement.
  2. Andrew Wakefield wrote an opinion paper with his suggestions.
  3. We don't use bleach to cure autism.
  4. We don't think tumeric and silver cure everything.
  5. We are educated, informed, well researched.
  6. We are united and we are resiliant.  We aren't going away.

 

Now that we've gotten those silly things out of the way, let's move on to facts.

Herd Immunity is the most common argument for vaccination.  That was the first concern I had and the topic I researched most at the start.  One question that stuck with me was – If the entire adult population isn't vaccinated and vaccines aren't life long, how do we / will we ever achieve herd immunity?

Let's look at some outbreaks:

  1. Canada:  The largest measles epidemic in North America in the last decade occurred in 2011 in Quebec, Canada, where rates of 1- and 2-dose vaccine coverage among children 3 years of age were 95%-97% and 90%, respectively, with 3%-5% unvaccinated. Among adolescents, 22% had received 2 vaccine doses. Outbreak investigation showed this proportion to have been an underestimate; active case finding identified 130% more cases among 2-dose recipients.  [Major measles epidemic in the region of Quebec despite a 99% vaccine coverage].
  2. Montana:  A total of 64 (82.1%) of the 78 patients on the reservation who were born after 1956 and were above the recommended age at vaccination had a history of adequate measles vaccination. …98.7% of students were appropriately vaccinated.   A persistent outbreak of measles despite appropriate prevention and control measures.
  3.  Massachusetts:  An outbreak of measles occurred in a high school with a documented vaccination level of 98 per cent. Nineteen (70 per cent) of the cases were students who had histories of measles vaccination at 12 months of age or older and are therefore considered vaccine failures. Measles outbreak in a vaccinated school population: epidemiology, chains of transmission and the role of vaccine failures.
  4. California: Whooping Cough Outbreak- Largest in 50 yrs!  Unexpectedly limited durability of immunity following acellular pertussis vaccination in preadolescents in a North American outbreak.
  5. Article excerpts: If the measles outbreaks in California, and particularly in and around Orange County, as well as New York City, are because of non-vaccinators, then why aren’t we seeing outbreaks of everything not being vaccinated for? Why just measles and why all of a sudden, when the number of people opting out of vaccinations has actually steadily dropped in the last few years – after an initial wave of people not doing it?  Non-vaccinators in NY are .1-1% of the population. In California, we are talking 1.1-2%. Why aren’t we seeing increases in outbreaks in Vermont, Michigan, and Oregon where the rate is over 6%?  Political Blind Spot article

 

Money:  Let's move on to a very controversial topic, money.   I know this will be hard for some people to digest because we want to believe everything is done for the good of our children, for the benefit of mankind.  Keep in mind, pharma is a business.  Your doctor's office is a business.   As such, they need to make money.   I am all about everyone making money, but never at the cost of someone else.   Pediatricians are now turning away children who don't get vaccines.   Don't they take an oath to do no harm?  Turning away children because the parent made a decision?   Why would a doctor do that?  One reason could be that they make bonuses for every vaccinated person.  Blue Cross seems to be the only health insurance company that's posted their bonus incentive, so let's look at it.

bcbs_providerincentiveprogram1

*Blue Cross Blue Shield locked online access to their incentive program and then removed the page altogether. Clearly, this incentive program was never intended to be public knowledge and created a bit of PR issue for them. Fortunately, another website managed to save the entire BCBS incentive program booklet and has published it in entirety online… You can read it here:  Blue Cross Blue Shield Physician Incentive Program

Some quotes straight from doctors and others:

Doctor Bob talking to MN Legislators, he states:  "It's absolutely true that you make a ton of money off of vaccines … "I lose $700,000 a year because I don't make every kid vaccinate."   Doctor Bob Zajac

Vaccinations are now carried out for purely commercial reasons because they fetch huge profits for the pharmaceutical industry……There is no scientific evidence that vaccinations are of any benefit, but it is clear that they cause a great deal of harm."—Dr Buchwald (The Decline of Tuberculosis despite "Protective" Vaccination by Dr. Gerhard Buchwald M.D. p130, 132, 134.)

DOCTORS have been told to come clean about Infanrix, the safer whooping cough jab available on the NHS – but only if directly challenged about it by parents. The compromise means that parents who ask no questions will have their children injected with the cheaper DTwP jab laced with ethyl mercury – asubstance ordered out of US medicine on health grounds."–Media Feb 2003

For decades, American pharmaceutical companies have known how to produce the safer DPT vaccine but decided not to bring it to market because it would increase production costs and lower the drug's 50% or higher profit margins."–Money Magazine

Parents be forewarned. The vaccine industry perpetuates the greatest conflict of interest in earth's history. "–Dr Horowitz

If you want the truth on vaccination you must go to those who are not making anything out of it. If doctors shot at the moon every time it was full as a preventive of measles and got a shilling for it, they would bring statistics to prove it was a most efficient practice, and that the population would be decimated if it were stopped."—Dr Allinson

Science – Many will say we are "anti science" and we don't rely on peer reviewed studies to make our points.  I will give them the latter.  I don't rely solely on peer reviewed studies because:

Conflicts of interest in vaccine safety research

Scholarly journal retracts 60 articles, smashes ‘peer review ring’

The Fall of a Scientific Journal

Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science

Safety:  But vaccines are put through rigorous testing!  Are they?

One of the flaws in studies of vaccines is that there are no true placebo groups. The vaccine is tested in one group of immunized children and is compared to another group of immunized children."–Peter Baratosy (doctor)

Safety studies on vaccinations are limited to short time periods only: several days to several weeks. There are NO (NONE) long term (months or years) safety studies on any vaccination or immunization. For this reason, there are valid grounds for suspecting that many delayed-type vaccine reactions may be taking place unrecognized at to their true nature. Longest safety trial of of the triple vaccine (MMR, all live attenuated viruses) was three weeks. 

FDA virologist Peter Reeve…….. acknowledged that the FDA suspended its own independent tests of vaccine purity 15 years ago, leaving it entirely up to the manufacturers to ensure the vaccine is contaminant free."–'The Virus and the Vaccine': Atlantic Monthly  http://www.whale.to/vaccines/sv409.html

Since the 1920s, virtually all continuing medical and public health education is funded by pharmaceutical companies. In fact, today, the FDA can't even tell health scientists the truth about vaccine contaminants and their likely effects. The agency is bound and gagged by proprietary laws and non-disclosure agreements forced upon them by the pharmaceutical industry. Let us not forget that the pharmaceutical industry, as a special interest group, is the number one contributor to politicians on Capital Hill."–Leonard Horowitz

Since vaccine development information is considered proprietary (protected by nondisclosure policies) government officials and researchers must shield potential safety issues from public scrutiny. This censorship is rationalized by the all too persuasive argument that vaccines cannot be criticized lest the public become non-compliant in taking them. Finally, this silence is buttressed by the small number of people capable of critically evaluating vaccine manufacturing and safety testing procedures. In essence, health care professionals and the general public know little about the possible dangers of live viral vaccines."–Dr Martin

 

We could never possibly cover all of the different issues that come up around vaccines (third world experiments, ingredients, conflicts of interest – CDC, NIH, FDA, Pharma)…we will be writing about those things in the coming months.  For now, we hope that we've given you something to think about.  Click the links, join groups on FB, ask that crazy anti vax friend that's always posting.  Don't just believe it cannot happen to your child.  It can.

Most of all, pray.

No shots, no school?

Are you like most parents and believe your child must have his or her immunizations up to date before school starts?   The doctors, media, and government do a great job convincing us that this is true when in fact, it is not.

Most states have religious, philosophical or medical exemptions available.  Only 3 have medical only (Mississippi, West VA, California)   Vaccine Exemptions

usmap.jpg

 

You do not need to belong to any specific religion to file a religious exemption in most cases.   For many states, it’s a simple letter written by YOU that states vaccination is against your religious beliefs.   A similar process for philosophical exemptions.   Medical exemptions are different.  You will need your doctor involved to get one approved.  All of this information can be found at the link posted above or you can request to join us here: Vaccine Awareness and Education Network  to learn more.  We are happy to help you obtain the information you need.

7 out in the open secrets about vaccines

I was talking to a friend last night and we got on the topic of vaccines. I share a ton of info on my Facebook page but somehow, thanks to FB’s decision to decide who sees what, she’s never seen my posts.

If you’ve never been told about these things then all of this may be new to you. I’ll be as gentle as possible. If you are already informed, I’m sending a virtual.✋🏻👊🏻

Secrets that are easily verifiable:

Vaccine Court. In the 70s and 80s, the number of lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers increased dramatically, mainly due to the DPT vaccine.
Many pharmaceutical companies were leaving the vaccine business and by 1984 only one was making DPT. In 1986 Congress passed the Vaccine Injury Act and in 1988 a compensation system. We (tax payers) fund the system. If a child suffers a vaccine injury you go to a special court to see if you qualify for a monetary award. (Be informed and know only childhood vaccines fall under this rule. Adults can sue the manufacturer as long as the vaccine is for adults only.) 10351609_10152432792707931_6867907312322706231_n

$4 Billion. As of the writing of this post we’ve paid out close to $4 billion to injured parties.

payouts.JPG

Autism Omnibus Proceeding. In 2001 thousands of families began petitioning NVICP claiming their children’s autism was caused by a vaccine (or series of vaccines). The established a special program in 2002 to handle all these claims.

Simpsonwood Conference 2000. Google this. This meeting tells us so much about the CDC, studies and the overall lack of accountability when it comes to what we are told about the safety of vaccines. Simpsonwood Transcripts

Animal uses in vaccines could be causing the increase in allergies. Since the very first vaccine, we’ve used things like fertilized chicken eggs, canine kidney to culture vaccines. We’ve also used peanut oil (think about peanut allergies and the increase over time), gelatin, calf serum, yeast, monkey kidney cells, MSG and other things.

Human fetal cells. MRC-5 originates from the lung tissue of a 14-week male fetus aborted for “psychiatric reasons” in the 1970s. WI-38 originates from a female fetus also aborted for “psychiatric reasons” in the 1960s. Hek-293 from human embryonic kidney cells. RA273 was cultivated on the WI-38 cell line. 40 more babies were aborted after RA273 was successfully isolated. Over 80 separate abortions were involved in the research and final production of the present day rubella vaccine. Per c6 isolated from a female fetus about 18 weeks. This cell line has caused cancer in mice.

Conflicts of interest. There are so many conflicts of interest that I’m going to ask you to read this: Vaccine conflicts of interest

This post will be just the beginning of a series on vaccines, our awareness and what you can do to learn more. We will cover other topics as well. Stay awake!
