Vaccines: What Your Doctors Know and Don’t Know

What did your doctor learn about vaccines in medical school?

What did your doctor learn about vaccines in medical school?

Do you ever wonder what doctors know about the dozens of vaccines they inject into your children? What they learn in medical school about vaccines? And after they graduate? Who controls what they are taught? My research has been quite an eye-opener.

WHAT DOCTORS LEARN IN SCHOOL …

First question: What do doctors actually learn in medical school about vaccines? Here’s what several have to say.

Dr. Suzanne Humphries:

We learn that vaccines need to be given on schedule. We are indoctrinated with the mantra that ‘vaccines are safe and effective’—neither of which is true. Doctors today are given extensive training on how to talk to ‘hesitant’ parents—how to frighten them by vastly inflating the risks during natural infection. …on the necessity of twisting parents’ arms to conform, or fire them from their practices. Doctors are trained that NOTHING bad should be said about any vaccine, period.” [1]

Dr. Bob Sears:

Doctors learn a lot about diseases in medical school, but we learn very little about vaccines. … We don’t review the research ourselves. We never learn what goes into making vaccines or how their safety is studied. So, when patients want a little more information about shots, all we can really say as doctors is that the diseases are bad and the shots are good.” [2]

Dr. Larry Palevsky:

“I was taught that vaccines were completely safe and completely effective. But I kept seeing that my experience … in using and reading about vaccines, and hearing what parents were saying about vaccines were very different from what I was taught … When I look at the studies that the AAP and the CDC put out, saying that there’s no correlation between vaccination and autism or vaccinations and asthma, I have to say that the studies just don’t hold up to the scientific standards.” [3]

Next question: Who controls what doctors are taught? The pharmaceutical industry. How? Big Pharma provides hefty contributions to medical schools and teaching hospitals, advertises in medical journals, and funds the majority of research.

Marcia Angell sums it up well:

“If drug companies and medical educators were really providing education, doctors and academic institutions would pay them for their services. When you take piano lessons, you pay the teacher, not the other way around. But in this case, industry pays the academic institutions and faculty, and even the doctors who take the courses. The companies are simply buying access to medical school faculty and to doctors in training and practice.” [4]

Worldwide, the vaccine market is approximately $30 billion. The U.S. claims two-thirds of that total, or $20 billion. [5] Which leads to another question: Should pharmaceutical companies be responsible for what doctors are taught about vaccines? They have everything to gain by selling vaccines and nothing to lose.

… AND BEYOND

I’ve also wondered how doctors learn about new vaccines. After all, more are being developed all the time. It must be difficult for medical professionals to keep up with all those shots. Fortunately, Big Pharma makes substantial contributions to the billions of dollars spent on CME (Continuing Medical Education) each year. There are courses available in various formats, from webcasts and NetConferences to DVDs and onsite training. Their purpose? To teach doctors how to increase vaccination rates.

CDC

The CDC has online classes like “Immunization: You Call the Shots.” [6] And the CDC’s ACIP provides an online version of SHOTS, the current immunization schedule. [7]

AAP

The AAP offers the EQIPP (Education in Quality Improvement for Pediatric Practice) “Give Your Immunization Rates a Shot in the Arm” course. [8] Another AAP tool is the CASE model. [9] I have to preface this one by saying that anybody who knows me knows I am rarely speechless. But I was completely flabbergasted when I watched two videos designed to help doctors communicate with parents who have concerns about vaccines. I suggest that you watch both (“Do Vaccines Cause Autism?” and “Are There Too Many Vaccines?”). Just trust me when I say there is nothing I can say to prepare you for what you will see and hear.

AAFP

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has created a curriculum to help doctors deal with the “immunization pushback” and to “combat pseudoscience.” To help them respond when parents say, “I was reading about vaccines online …” or, “I was watching this show about vaccines …” [10]

A survey of pediatricians showed that 72.9 percent of parents refuse vaccines because they are afraid they cause autism, 61.5 percent because they aren’t sure the vaccines are safe (they’re too new or haven’t been tested enough), and 59.7 percent because they feel children get too many during the first 2 years. (That’s what I call progress!) With this in mind, is it any wonder that the emphasis on vaccine education for doctors is how to handle “vaccine-hesitant” parents?

The AAFP’s curriculum includes real-life scenarios of parental concerns and suggested responses for doctors. Here are a few.

Concern: Parents who think vaccines cause autism

Response: There is no scientific evidence showing a link between vaccines and autism. Children’s immune systems can handle the vaccines.

 

Concern: Parents who believe the vaccine schedule is a “money-fueled conspiracy”

Response: Doctors and public health officials support the schedule. Ask, “Do you really think I would recommend something that I didn’t think was best for your child?”

 

Concern: The source of vaccine-hesitant parents’ information

Response: Ask why they’re “taking medical advice from a celebrity, friend, relative, or magazine instead of from their child’s doctor.” Credible, scientific information comes from “reliable/stable groups” such as the AAP, NIH, and WHO. It’s not anecdotal, and nothing is being sold, such as a book, which would indicate a conflict of interest.

 

Concern: Parents who want to follow an alternate schedule

Response: Unvaccinated children can get sick and make other kids sick. Delaying shots delays protection. Ask, “You don’t delay putting your baby in a car seat. Why do you want to delay protection from vaccines?”

 

Concern: Serious side effects

Response: Serious side effects are extremely rare (1 in 100,000 children). Say, “Billions of people have received some vaccines. If they clearly caused a significant side effect, we would know about it.”

 

Concern: The purpose and safety of vaccine ingredients

Response: Each ingredient serves a purpose and is necessary. There is “no known toxicity” to any of them.

 

PHARMACISTS—“A PRIMARY SOURCE FOR VACCINE INFORMATION AND ADMINISTRATION” [11]

Pediatricians and other doctors aren’t the only ones giving vaccines. All 50 states allow pharmacists to administer shots. And they do so—at the rate of millions each year.

The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) has developed a certificate program for pharmacists. Besides learning about vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases, they are taught marketing skills for increasing vaccine rates and strategies for dispelling common myths about vaccines. [11]

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) provides recommendations for pharmacists and their role in decreasing the incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases. They include reminders to patients; disseminating information through phone, postcards, brochures, e-mail, television, and newspapers; presentations to community and professional groups; participation in public events; and seizing opportunities for screening (for example, a patient buying bandages and antibiotic might need a tetanus shot). [12]

Like physicians who increase vaccination rates, pharmacists get awards—the Immunization Champion Awards. In addition to six other categories, this year’s program (supported by Novartis Vaccines) awarded honors for “special recognition and lifetime achievement.” The activities by the more than 100 nominees included a “Beat the Bug” campaign with “little green squeezy bugs” for customers and a “bug mascot” at the state fair”; an off-site clinic at the local radio station that gave a flu shot on the air; and inflatable syringe balloons in a pharmacy along with associates standing outside the store in a pig costume with a sign saying “PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST THE SWINE FLU.” [13]

HOW CAN THEY NOT KNOW?

With all the “continuing education” doctors and pharmacists are bombarded with, it’s amazing what they don’t know about vaccines.

From recent news stories, it’s clear that vaccines are being stored improperly. That expired vaccines are being used. And the latest? Reusing syringes. The Safe Injection Practices Coalition’s One & Only Campaign states that in the last decade, more than 130,000 patients in the U.S. have been notified of “potential exposure” to hep B, hep C, and HIV. The One & Only Campaign’s slogan, by the way, is “One Needle, One Syringe, Only One Time.” Doctors actually have to be taught this? [14]

I bet few people have seen this story on the news. It’s not like the media has been all over it. Something as dangerous and negligent as reusing syringes and infecting people with life-threatening diseases. The irony of it is, I didn’t find out about it until I was researching what doctors know about vaccines.

In addition to these recent “errors,” I bet most doctors can’t name the ingredients and amounts in each vaccine. Or the risks and side effects (other than mild fever and redness at the injection site). Do they even know that some vaccines still contain mercury—more than the amount recommended in the EPA safety guidelines?

Another thing doctors don’t know anything about—or they know but deliberately give false information when parents ask—is vaccine exemptions. Many doctors tell parents their kids can’t go to school without vaccines. Not true.

Do you think doctors read any of the studies that show a definite link between vaccines and autism? Studies like Dr. Wakefield’s and the subsequent ones that replicated his findings? I doubt it. They’re too busy reading articles published in journals like Pediatrics and written by pharmaceutical company board members. Articles teaching them how to handle anti-vaccine parents and lessen the pain of vaccines. Anything that will raise vaccination rates.

You can sum up in one word what doctors, pharmacists, and others are taught about vaccines. Propaganda. They learn what Big Pharma wants them to learn, and they help line Big Pharma’s pockets—and destroy lives in the process.

“[Pharmaceutical companies] have proven themselves to be completely untrustworthy based on past behavior. In a court of law, if such a company were an actual witness, an attorney would never put them on the stand due to a serious lack of credibility. Are you really going to take these companies at their word that these shots are safe when money and profits are impacted by their answer?” [15]

    Excellent and extremely relevant article!
    Unfortunately medical students normally study about vaccines for only a short time during the the years at university and qualified doctors often don’t take the time to even read through package inserts.

    In comparison it is often the case that vaccine critics have spent hundreds of hours, even many years studying vaccines and know far more than the average doctor.

    We are many who are frustrated, unimpressed and tired of trying to ask about and discuss with doctors about vaccine ingredients, safety statistics, potential long term adverse events including carcinogenicity,
    synergy, interactions, secondary transmission, concomitant administration, etc.

    It is often blatantly obvious that the average doctor has minimal knowledge about the complex issue of vaccination.

  • MadGrandmother

    Part
    of being a doctor is to learn to think outside of the box and not to accept
    everything taught as the truth. Especially when it comes to medication and
    vaccines. If your sponsors are the manufacturers of such medications and
    vaccines are you that naïve that you believe everything they tell you about
    this product? Or, are you just that busy to research and see for your own eyes?

     

    We
    have actually been told by a pediatrician that there is no mercury in vaccines –
    we were told it was removed. Most doctors need to come to respect their
    patients. We are not MDs but we can read. Doctors also should be educators and
    not be motivated by their own greed and intentionally omit information or
    assume we, the patients or parents of patients, cannot interpret medical
    information (especially when it is as simple as understanding what mercury and
    aluminum can do to a brain!)

     

    Not
    only are many doctors completely ignorant about what’s in a vaccine but they
    don’t even seem to know the basics that anyone with average intelligence can
    learn and pick up from reading articles online. This ignorance coupled with
    greed is extremely dangerous. Doctors are too busy running after the big bucks
    and servicing as many patients as possible.  Doctors control their own pace and choose to
    be super busy because they want the new Mercedes or the new house, or the wife
    wants another diamond ring while our babies and children are being killed, robbed of their
    mind and their future by these damn useless vaccines. If that is not insane, I
    don’t know what is! Isn’t the goal of being a doctor helping people and that
    means that he/she has to learn his/her craft nonstop and thoroughly? Is it not
    the duty of a car mechanic to learn all he/she can about cars? Would you take
    your 50,000 dollar car to a mechanic who only knows the basics? And here we are
    talking about our children. You are allowing a busy doctor who doesn’t know
    much about vaccines to vaccinate your child with brain toxic ingredients that
    can lead to death, retardation, brain inflammation and bleeding in the brain,
    diabetes, brain tumors, MS etc. etc. ?????

     

    People,
    seriously, let’s all think about this for a moment! Doctors deal with our most
    precious commodities our children and our health. I am sick and fed up with these
    lies! At what point did our trusted pediatrician become our enemy? And don’t be
    fooled, if he/she is not giving you all the info, he/she is your enemy. I have completely lost trust in any doctor and check all medications online for side effects.

    Lies
    and ignorance almost killed my granddaughter and I am telling you, I am mad as
    hell! We all need to unite and go before congress. All parents and grandparents of vaccine
    injured children need to march before congress. Why are we even still talking about this? We need to take action. I will show up – just tell me when.

    If vaccines are so good
    how come doctors and nurses are not rushing to have them.

    Swine flu fears grow as NHS staff shun vaccine
    But hospital chief executives have told the
    Guardian that they expect as few as 10%-20% of their staff to get vaccinated
    and cannot fulfil the DH’s demands because the jabs, which are due to begin
    within days, are entirely voluntary.

    And if medics aren’t being
    vaccinated aren’t they more likely to be spreading the

    disease to other people
    according to the “herd immunity theory”?.

    And how can they give
    informed consent? Which they are legally obliged to do!! The party line is”
    Every patient should be vaccinated to protect 
    them from deadly( fill in any vaccine)”. 
    But my family and I will be giving it a miss? Now why is that doc? Are
    you immune to these diseases. Tell us the secret!!!!

    I just came across this article which shows what happened during
    the Swine Flu outbreak ..Chief Medical Officer Liam Donalson estimated 69,000
    people would die from swine flu…only 450 did and who knows

    whether they had underlying conditions which accounted for their
    deaths. However this revealing piece of information appeared in the

    newspapers.

    Doctors are in line for huge bonuses if large numbers of their
    patients sign up for swine flu jabs.
    Managers at a major health trust are offering extra payments on top of the
    £5.25 that GPs already get per injection.
    If they vaccinate more than 90 per cent of those deemed at risk of the disease
    in their area, they will get 50 per cent more per jab – £7.88 per person.
    An uptake of just 40 per cent will earn doctors an extra 10 per cent.

    Follow
    the money. The vaccines are a side show.

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Amy,
    One famous autism case the Vaccine Court awarded regarding Autism ($1.5 million, I believe) was the Hannah Poling Case.  However, her father was a doctor.  Hmmmm.

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Jennifer,
    Your reporting  “Billions of people have received some vaccines. If they clearly caused a significant side effect, we would know about it.” reminds me of the remark an MD head of a hospital told me in the 1980s: “If there was something to nutrition, wouldn’t we know about it?”

     How much egg has to be scraped off their faces with that one?  Nutrition is all over the place anymore.  I predict the same will happen with vaccines as soon as the public realizes they have been had by media campaigns and pseudo science, which their journals promulgate, I contend.

    Thanks for another great article.

    Tension Increases – Federal Judge Orders CDC to Produce Secret Documents…
    The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are – And Has Covered It Up… (Part Six)
    Excerpts:
    This article is the sixth in a series about THE MOST IMPORTANT COURT CASE ABOUT AUTISM currently being litigated – the Hooker v. United States Department of Health and Human Services, et al case.
    Why is this the most important case? 
    Because of what happened in what was called the  “Omnibus Autism Proceedings” (OAP) in 2010.
    The special Vaccine Court created by the  National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), in 1987, had become overloaded with claims about 2007, and the Special Masters running the court simply did not want to have to trudge through the backlog of the 5,400 cases facing it over vaccine injuries. 
    There in 2010,  a special Vaccine Court sub-set, called the OAP, decided six test cases – three from the MMR Vaccine causes Autism argument, and three from the Thimerosal (mercury) in vaccines causes Autism argument.  Those cases were themselves, representing a backlog of the 5,400 cases, which, in turn, represented the interests of over 2,000,000 vaccine damaged children in the US.  More, those cases, if won by the Plaintiffs, would have set the stage for relief for the families of the one in six children vaccine damaged showing neurological damage.
    The OAP judges relied COMPLETELY, for all six cases, on the truth and validity of the five so-called studies ordered and run by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
    So, in short, the Judge isn’t buying the CDC’s arguments about why it is withholding information.  The trap Hooker set paid off.  It looks to me that the federal judge is beginning to smell the rat in the CDC’s position.

    When identified below the age of three years, affected children often respond to therapy designed to augment complex I activity and limit fasting.  We speculate that, like the basal ganglia, areas of the brain important in the development of language and personal social interaction are especially vulnerable in the first two to three years to injury mediated by defects of mitochondrial energy metabolism, and that early evaluation of autistic children for these more subtle mitochondrial disturbances may rescue some of them from more severe brain injury and lifelong disability.

    “Are you really going to take these companies at their word that these
    shots are safe when money and profits are impacted by their answer?” 

    There are so many unanswered questions about the ignorance of supposedly educated parties on “vaccination”. How can so many people be so wrong? How can the “protectors” of our health be so astoundingly IGNORANT of basic human physiology?

    How? How? Why? Why?

    It reminds me of dealing of crafty children who ALWAYS protested ignorance. As a parent we soon learned the KIDS KNEW no matter how ignorant they appeared.

    That is exactly how I feel about the “vaccination” imbroglio. The CDC KNOWS; they have a depopulation agenda to attend to, plain and simple.

    “Vaccination” is dragging down the immune systems of our kids; our foolish elders and anyone else foolish enough to believe the chain gang of cretins shoving the needles in our arms. When the H5N1 bio-weapon is at last released these weakened immune systems are going to mow us down like ripe wheat under the newly CDC sharpened harvester.

    Oh one more important thing; MOST of the H5N1 MUST be delivered by NEEDLE as it is extremely difficult to spread human to human despite the current propaganda.

    …“I was taught that vaccines were completely safe and completely
    effective. But I kept seeing that my experience … in using and reading
    about vaccines, and hearing what parents were saying about vaccines were
    very different from what I was taught … When I look at the studies that
    the AAP and the CDC put out, saying that there’s no correlation between
    vaccination and autism or vaccinations and asthma, I have to say that
    the studies just don’t hold up to the scientific standards.” [3]

    Next question: Who controls what doctors are taught? The
    pharmaceutical industry. How? Big Pharma provides hefty contributions to
    medical schools and teaching hospitals, advertises in medical journals,
    and funds the majority of research.

    Marcia Angell sums it up well:

    “If drug companies and medical educators were really providing
    education, doctors and academic institutions would pay them for their
    services. When you take piano lessons, you pay the teacher, not the
    other way around. But in this case, industry pays the academic
    institutions and faculty, and even the doctors who take the courses. The
    companies are simply buying access to medical school faculty and to
    doctors in training and practice.”…

    I entirely disagree with those statements… we are medical-scientist have very strict rules and ethics in conducting drugs research. It is true that pharmaceutical company usually give budget support for conducting research but we also have regulations that must be followed and can not be intervened by the pharmaceutical company and also it is not a matter of money but it is about how to improve the health… we put the human welfare as the first priority…

    Check out this similar article of quotes from VETERINARIANS about how little they learned about vaccinating in vet school. http://truth4pets.org/2012/06/vets-on-vaccines/  Both are really great articles.

    Silence , slaves. Just follow our commands and pay your taxes. You have no rights anymore and people are still apathetic ( fluoride ) and sleeping. This current administration is the most corrupt EVER. Don’t misunderstand – they are all corrupt anymore but Obama’s goes way beyond – it’s the Chicago way.

    Way to spread that misinformation! Two thumbs way up!

    There is only one answer to all these arguments. We are being deceived, misinformed, and made us ignorant.

    If mutation is real and resulted a different race, then who did that procedure?

    Hey BILL and MELINDA GATES…………..READ THIS!!!!! (arrogant bastards!!!) Now you know what the real agenda is for their foundation! They know this and so many actually DO know this. Vaccines injuries and deaths have been going on since the beginning. It has become all about the money for Big Pharma and depopulation for the NWO. WHERE oh WHERE is the Hippocratic Oath in any of this??? “FIRST DO NO HARM”! In the meantime, thank you for being brave enough, educated enough and awake enough to tell the truth. May we save yet another child’s life by sharing our knowing/truth. I was a student Nurse in 1982 and when I graduated, I knew I would never be an allopathic nurse, only Holistic Medicine. Vaccines are only the top of the sadistic/money grubbing iceberg. Try looking up what a women’s radioactive breast mammogram does or in fact the whole cancer industry!….and you will never go to one again! Swine flu, they tried to pull that off in 1976! I found the newspaper article in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pa. announcing how everyone had to get a shot! Thank God I was not so stupid. So when they tried to shove that one in our face again…well, many of us knew NOT to get it and their little game was defeated. How about Gardisil? The menace out to get pre teen girls??? I had a daughter that age a couple years ago and the school called me (we live in London, England) and the Nurse asked why I would not allow my daughter to have this shot they were so freely and casually giving out to all the 13 year old girls and I said, “WHY would I want to put THAT poison in my beloved only child???????!!!” There was no arguing from her on the other side. Now I told my sister-in law this story and she lives in Pgh with her son, my nephew, exactly the same age…and what did she tell me a couple weeks later??? The school wanted to give HIM a shot of gardisil!!!!! So how friggen NUTS is that?? Luckily she and I had talked and she said NO before they could make him sick, sterile or blind deaf and dumb! Whatever their agenda is, it is never good! Be aware, and take your own health care and of those you love in your own hands. The solution is to not give YOUR power over to uneducated Doctors and the money making Big Pharma who wants you on any drug they can from the womb to death! Try Holistic Medicine, see a Naturopath, a Homeopath and use your brain while you still have one! Ms. S. Cohen

    About the Too Many Vaccines Video:
    Did she just cite the Pertussis-Asthma study from the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology? *confused* Except that it was tracking asthma and not developmental delays? Or was there another study?

  • people-before-profit

    STOP!
    Answer me these questions:
    1. The infant’s/children’s immune system can handle the shots?
    my 2 cents: Can you look into my child’s immune system and confirm that he is able to tolerate these new vaccines which are genetically modified, adjuvated, laced with formaldehyde, etc, etc, etc? Are all children consist of the same genetic make up? Are they all unsusceptible to certain autoimmune disorders, or are some more susceptible than others? For example,a child who has a strong familial history on both sides of Diabetes Mellitus (both mother and father has it, or has a mother/father that has it), don’t you think that, that child might be a bit more susceptible to developing Diabetes in his/her life time? Do you not know(it says so right on the package insert) that Diabetes Mellitus is a possible adverse effect of the MMR vaccine? This is right from the manufacture’s mouth. Did you ask your self ever that sometimes people have susceptible genes for certain diseases that are sleeping, that is awaken prematurely by synthetic(man made) drugs and inteferences. So forget about medical books and what they say right now. Sometimes the best Doctors are the ones that can think without their textbooks. To you Doctors, how can a one-size-fits all approach to medicine and drugs,( vaccines are drugs) apply to unique individuals? Hmmm? There is too much to say here, and little space. Let me move on to question 2.
    2. Do you truly know about the vaccines that you are adamantly recommending?
    my 2 cents: I am not a doctor. My learning about vaccines in schools is that they prevent the disease you are being vaccinated for. It is not until my own research later on in life. And my own son’s experience with vaccines, which led me to investigate more that the text book teachings.
    Doctor did you know that(it says so on the manufacture’rs package insert)
    -vaccines are not 100% effective.
    -not everyone recieving it will be immune
    -has side effects
    -has adverse effects , including death, even if it only occurs in the unluncky 1%
    -much more. see individual package insert for details.
    3. Can you asure me that there is no stray animal or human defective protein, dna, virus, disorders, mutated genes in a particular vaccine? How can one remove the stray virus without removing the vaccine virus, etc?
    4. Can you assure me that a particular vaccine one cause infertility, cancer, genetic mutation? On the package inserts, the manufacturer steted that no test to determine those risks was completed. in other words, they do not know. Do you know?
    *I am not part of a herd.
    *I am a unique individual
    *I am a human being, not an animal being
    *I am fearfully and wonderfully made with an immune system that was created intelligently by devine hands.
    *I did not evolve from nothing.
    *I did not evolve from an animal being. That is very impossible. a fish cannot beget a bird, just like a bird cannot beget a monkey, etc, etc. It is genetically impossible.
    I could go on, on. But, that’s all for now!
    What I am against is the “hurry-up vaccines,” vaccines without adequate long term research, the short staffing in these pharmaceutical companies who rush their vaccines on the market in the name of profits; pharmaceutical company involved in lies, deception, corruption etc, and these are the same ones we are suppose to trust with the very life and health of our children? I am against abortion.  I am against aborted fetal parts in vaccines. (I recently found this out). I don’t care if the cell is a replication or clone of the original aborted fetal cell from nineteen-o-when.  I am against pharmaceutical gluttony and medical greed.  I am against competition and corruption in science and medicine. I thought medicine was supposed to be sacred? What happened to “first do no harm?” I am against evil science and medicine. When satan infiltrates the minds of medicine and people, all hell breaks loose. Where there is no Jesus, there you will find satan.  I am against vaccines being used for x, y, and z, other than intended.  I am against vaccines being used to deplete the population “10-15%” “Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.” 1 Timothy 6:17.  I am also against medical personnel, doctors, nurses, etc bullying or using scare tactics, or even threatening behaviors and remarks, in order to coerce one to vaccinate, or over-vaccinate. Don’t be surprise some of the doctors and nurses don’t even truly know about the very vaccines they market.  Maybe they know, but money, privileges and prestige are more important than somebody else’s child. Maybe they have been brainwashed, naïve, or plain ignorant. CREW Executive Director Melanie Sloan stated, “Patients presume that doctors choose vaccines based on the patient’s best interests. Now we learn that’s not always true. In some cases, doctors are choosing vaccines based on the discounts offered by the drug manufacturer.”http://www.citizensforethics.org/index.php/press/entry/crew-requests-antitrust-investigation-into-drug-companies/
     
    “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10.

    4. Can you assure me that a particular vaccine wont cause infertility, cancer, genetic mutation? On the package inserts, the manufacturer stated that no test were completed to determine those risks exhist. In other words, they do not know. Do you know?

  • Kylietd

    Thank you so much for venting on how I feel about all those vaccines!!!! I have a 21/2 month old and I was in between for a while about vaccinating her. I have done so much research now to know that I will NEVER let them stick her with all those chemicals and that it’s all about the money!!!! Sick sick sick people in this world!!!! Kudos to you!!!! And me!!! We all have to stick together!!

    why polio vaccination should not be repeated?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=771227867 Shawn Margaret Cohen

    Yes, and when she grows up with a strong immune system and healthy and no mental deficit, that will be thanks enough. Trust me, I see this every day and it is so wonderful. My daughter is now 16 and never even had a cavity! We live in London which of course has people going to her High School from many “3rd world” countries, so she never caught a disease from any of them who so called may have brought it in with them! I salute you too but once you see what is in these vaccines, no mother who gets “it” would even think for one second about it. The Doctors are just as brainwashed so no good fighting them, just opt out..and opt in to a healthy child! My daughter is and …she graduates this June…Now that is a result!
