The 1st Vaccine, VAERS, and Vaccine Industry Conflict of Interest

Who Wouldn't Vaccinate their Child?

Did you know that a study completed by the CDC and published in Pediatrics, Children Who Have Received No Vaccines: Who Are They and Where Do They Live? stated:

"Unvaccinated children tended to be white, to have a mother who was married and had a college degree, to live in a household with an annual income exceeding $75,000, and to have parents who expressed concerns regarding the safety of vaccines and indicated that medical doctors have little influence over vaccination decisions for their children."

Don’t you think this is interesting? One of two things has to be true:

A. Rich, well-educated white people are society’s most gullible.
B. Rich, well-educated people understand that vaccines have benefits AND RISKS and have weighed the trade-offs and put their children’s needs first.

The First Vaccine Your Child Receives
*Did you know the Hep B vaccine, the first one given to your newborn in the hospital, is to prevent a disease spread between sexually promiscuous people, IV drug users, homosexuals and Hep B infected mothers transmission to child? Does your 1 day old fit this description? 

*Did you know studies show that after 5 years, 60% of the vaccine recipients no longer had protective antibodies. Is your child going to be doing drugs or having sex in the first 5 years of their life?  Do they really need this shot first day out of the womb? The vaccine manufacturer says, “the duration of the protective effect…is unknown.”  This is the vaccine industry we are trusting with the discernment of what our children "need." 

*Did you know that your newborn is receiving 250mcg of aluminum, a known neurotoxin, in their hep b shot when the FDA states that toxicity, neurological damage, and various other conditions can occur in infants at just 25 mcg?  Why are they allowing this insane amount of toxic substance to be injected into these babies who are not high-risk?

*Did you know the CDC says that "initiating the Hepatitis B vaccine series at birth has been shown to increase a child's likelihood of completing the vaccine series on schedule," even when the mother is negative for Hep B?  What's the important issue here? More shots on schedule, more money made. 

*Did you know  the vaccine manufacturers push the Hep B vaccine at birth because newborns are an easy market?  They state that infants are “accessible” and “because a vaccination strategy limited to high-risk individuals has failed.”  Babies are getting it without needing it, because they can't get the druggies to come in and get vaccinated. These are the people we are trusting with the health of our children!  Does it seem like they have the best interest of a newborn’s delicate, developing system in mind? 

*Did you know 87% of Pediatricians do not think the Hep B vaccine is necessary? 

*Did you know that numerous neurological and autoimmune disorders have been scientifically linked to the Hep B vaccine?  Vision and hearing disorders, blood disorders, skin disorders, diabetes, kidney and liver disorders have all been scientifically linked to Hep B.

MYTH: If There Were Serious Injuries, We Would Hear About Them
*Did you know there is a Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) the FDA was legally bound to create?  Most people don't, because doctors don't tell you.  The following paragraphs are found on their website at

When evaluating data from VAERS, it is important to note that for any reported event, no cause and effect relationship has been established. VAERS is interested in all potential associations between vaccines and adverse events. Therefore, VAERS collects data on any adverse event following vaccination, be it coincidental or truly caused by a vaccine. The report of an adverse event to VAERS is not documentation that a vaccine caused the event."
"Underreporting" is one of the main limitations of passive surveillance systems, including VAERS. The term, underreporting refers to the fact that VAERS receives reports for only a small fraction of actual adverse events. The degree of underreporting varies widely. As an example, a great many of the millions of vaccinations administered each year by injection cause soreness, but relatively few of these episodes lead to a VAERS report. Physicians and patients understand that minor side effects of vaccinations often include this kind of discomfort, as well as low fevers.  On the other hand, more serious and unexpected medical events are probably more likely to be reported than minor ones, especially when they occur soon after vaccination, even if they may be coincidental and related to other causes. 

A report to VAERS generally does not provide sufficient basis for concluding that the identified vaccine(s) caused the adverse event described.  It only confirms that the reported event occurred sometime after vaccine receipt. No proof that the event was caused by the vaccine is required in order for VAERS to accept the report. VAERS accepts all reports without judging whether the event was caused by the vaccine. "  

 *Did you know "The FDA estimates that only about 10% of adverse reactions are reported."  (Reported by KM Severyn, R.Ph.D. in the Dayton Daily News, May 28, 1993. Ohio Parents for Vaccine Safety, 251 Ridgeway Dr., Dayton, OH 45459)  

*Did you know “that only between one and 10 percent of reactions are ever reported even though there has been a federal law in place since 1986 that requires serious health problems following vaccination to be reported to the government.” 

*Did you know that “if all adverse events were known and scored by severity level, the results expressed as a graph most likely would form a bell-shaped curve. At one end of the curve would be the “rare” catastrophic adverse effects and at the other end the mild effects such as temporary redness and swelling without other problems. The big question is: What do we have under the hump of the curve?”  

The following testimonials (this is an extremely small sampling) from parents and relatives of vaccine-damaged children illustrate how easily doctors can dismiss apparent vaccine reactions and thus justify not reporting them:
"Our son had his 2nd DPT shot and oral polio [vaccine] at four months of age on September 22, 1989. He had reacted to his 1st DPT immunization two months earlier with prolonged high-pitched screaming and projectile vomiting.... After his 2nd shot he immediately started the high-pitched screaming again. He could no longer hold his head up and could not keep his food down. He couldn't sleep or stay awake, he had absence seizures, dozens to hundreds a day. He deteriorated daily and died April 14, 1990." The doctor would not report this reaction. He did not feel that it was related to the vaccine.
  "Our 16-month-old grandson received his 4th DPT shot on December 5, 1989, and he died 24 days later. He also received the MMR and oral polio vaccines at the same time. Within 24 hours his legs were red and swollen, he had a fever of 103 degrees, and he was very fussy and irritable.... His previous shots had similar reactions.... We know the shot contributed to his death." The doctor would not report this reaction. He did not feel that it was related to the vaccine.
"We lost our beautiful, precious and adored 4-month-old son 26 hours after receiving the DPT vaccination and oral polio [vaccine] at his well-baby checkup on January 25, 1990.... We were aware our son's behavior patterns changed after the shot.... He was staring, looked spacey, only took short naps, vomited his bottle.... The doctor was insistent that this was a SIDS death." The doctor would not report this reaction. He did not feel that it was related to the vaccine.
Many more parent testimonials, U.S. Congressional Hearings with scientific facts and parent statements can be read in Neil Miller's book, Vaccine Safety Manual.  

FACT: The Vaccine Industry Is Tangled with Conflicts of Interest
*Did you know that the vaccine industry is swarming with conflicts of interest?  Monetary gain drives the system and is a huge motivating factor. Your child’s health is not the primary focus.

*Did you know "Members of the CDC's Vaccine Advisory Committee get money from vaccines manufacturers. Relationships include: sharing a vaccine patent; owning stock in a vaccine company, payments for research getting money to monitor manufacturer's tests and funding academic departments."  ~UPI (United Press International) Investigates the Vaccine Conflict 

*Did you know Dr. Julie Gerberding, who was in charge of the CDC for eight years, is now the President of Merck Vaccines?

*Did you know that Paul Offit, creator of the new rotavirus vaccine and apparent spokesperson for the CDC and vaccine industry stated:
Regarding Thimerosal (Mercury) in vaccines:
"In some instances I think full disclosure can be harmful. Is it safe to say there is zero risk with thimerosal, when it is remotely possible that one child would get sick? Well, since we say that mercury is a neurotoxin, we have to do everything we can to get rid of it. But I would argue that removing thimerosal didn't make vaccines safer -- it only made them perceptibly safer."
On potential conflicts of interest as a vaccine patent-holder:
"I am a co-holder of a patent for a (rotavirus) vaccine. If this vaccine were to become a routinely recommended vaccine, I would make money off of that. When I review safety data, am I biased? That answer is really easy: absolutely not."
Speaking to a journalist:
"You did more harm than good in sort of quote/unquote allowing the parent to be fully informed [regarding the presence of mercury in vaccines]. There’s no politically correct way to say this, but being fully informed is not always the best thing. You can take that out of context and make me look like a jerk, but you know what I’m saying."

*Did you know that Paul Offit also wrote in the journal of Pediatrics that a child’s immune system could handle 10,000 vaccines?  What an outrageous statement.

Why I Created This Blog

This blog has been created out of concern for the welfare of my friends and family, who may not be educated on the vaccine industry and its implications on our lives today and in the future.  There is an overwhelming amount of information available to parents today, and some of the typical websites looked to for guidance (AAP, CDC) are not unbiased as they may seem. 

I was uninformed about vaccines when my first was born and had him vaccinated through 6 months.  I distinctly remember when we were in the hospital and the nurse asked me if I wanted to vaccinate for HepB.  I said, "Yes. Absolutely...I want him protected."  All the while, I was pridefully thinking in my head what a good parent I was being and wondering who wouldn't get their child vaccinated.  They must be completely irresponsible, uncaring, idiotic parents.

I now look back on my previous thoughts and realize I was the one who was uneducated and irresponsible.  I accepted a vaccine for my child, not knowing what was in it, what it was suppose to protect against, what the side effects may be...nothing.  I blindly allowed them to shoot toxins into my one day old child, precious and perfectly made by God himself.  When my chiropractor informed me of some vaccine facts that are easily dismissed or covered up, I was shocked and concerned.  Since then, I have spent the last few years researching the matter. 

While I could have easily decided not to share this information with others, and keep my vaccine decisions to myself (since it is such a taboo subject,) I could not bear the thought of what could happen if I didn't.  I could not live with the guilt of watching someone close to me suffer with the possibilities of vaccine-injury, when I knew I had facts I could have shared and possibly spared them. 

Does that mean I am an anti-vaccine pusher?  No.  My goal is to educate parents so they can make a decision confidently, being fully aware of vaccine issues not commonly discussed.  I completely respect the decisions others make regarding their children, just as I expect my decisions to be respected.  My only hope is that parents will spend the time to look into these matters.  After all, we spend 10 months researching baby items, names, room colors, etc., can't we spend a few hours reading up on the subject of vaccines that could determine the future of our children, as well as ours?

I am raising 2 healthy, unvaccinated children and am seeing the effects of the sudden rise in learning disabilities and neurodevelopmental issues in the children around me...being a former teacher and now as a full-time child care provider.  Here are my own statistics.

Out of the 10 children I have cared for in the last 2 years:

*4 out of 10 are on the autistic spectrum
*6 out of 10 have slight to severe speech delays
*2 out of 10 suffer with muscle impairment
*2 out of 10 have chronic asthma
*3 out of 10 had delayed feeding abilities, resulting in gagging and vomiting
*6 out of 10 have eczema

The only category that my children fit into is the eczema, which is genetically passed down from me. There was only one other child who fit into just one category.  The rest fit into more than one category, with one child fitting into five of the above categories. This is just a small portion of children...yet the effects are evident. 

For more information on the vaccine topic, I highly recommend Neil Miller's book.  It goes into detail about each disease, the risks of the disease AND risks of the vaccine.  It is filled with statistics, studies, more than 90 charts, graphs, and illustrations, and fully referenced with over 1,000 scientific citations and sources:

Vaccine Safety Manual for Concerned Families and Health Practitioners: Guide to Immunization Risks and Protection by: Neil Miller

This is another AMAZING site with all facts referenced with the original studies/articles.

I could never begin to cover all the information on vaccines or pull up all the sources available, so please understand this blog is not all-inclusive!  The sites referenced on my blog are an extremely small amount of the information available today in books, scientific journals, and websites.  Here, you will find just the tip of the iceberg.  Follow the money and you'll find more answers....
