Side Effects/Possible Outcomes: Encephalitis / GBS / Multiple Sclerosis

To me, one of the most startling things about the widespread, pretty much knee-jerk buy-in of the vaccine paradigm is this:

Information about vaccines’ potentially very serious (even deadly) side effects is provided to us (i.e. doctors & patients) by the vaccine manufacturers (i.e., the pharmaceutical industry) right upfront. They are right there in the product “monographs” or “inserts” (printed material sent in the boxes with vaccine vials) provided by the industry.

We can easily access the information right from the horse’s mouth.

But we don’t! (We don’t even know that we can. & should!)

Our doctors/”health” professionals do not provide us with this information. The vaccine “inserts” are neither read out to us, nor handed to us, whether in the MD’s office, or at a school vaccination clinic. Nor do “health” professionals provide links to the monographs on-line.

In other words, we are actually not even able to provide our “informed consent” to vaccination … because we have not been informed!

I don’t quite understand how this came to be so, but that’s how it is.


However, once we prick up our ears & start paying attention (rather than just accepting the vaccine orthodoxy), we find out that these monographs/inserts are readily available to us.

It would be pretty foolish of us not to read them … wouldn’t you say?

Locating Vaccine Monographs

To locate monographs for vaccines used in Canada, go here.

Find plenty more about all things vaccine in Canada (e.g. which vaccines are used at different ages in all the different provinces, how to have your child attend school without being fully vaccinated, etc. etc.) on the Vaccine Choice Canada Web site. If you would like to read what “Health” Canada tells us about vaccines, visit this location. (For which vaccines are recommended for particular age groups, read up on Vaccine Choice Canada’s site here, &/or on the “Health” Canada site, here.)

To locate the monographs for the U.S., you can take a slightly meandering route here on the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) site, starting here. The advantage to this meandering route is that there is lots of information there about the various individual diseases. Or, you can go right straight to a list of monographs linked to on this FB page. Here is another source for U.S. monographs.

If you’ve never read a vaccine monograph, you’re likely in for some surprises.

I must also add that these information sheets are very long, & are broken down into many different categories. It’s important to read them all the way through. There are generally several different sections that include contraindications, warnings and precautions, complications, adverse reactions, possible side effects, & then maybe “postmarketing” information (i.e., outcomes that occurred after the vaccine went on the market). In general, you will find a statement near the end to the effect that the monograph has not included ALL possible side effects, and that if you want more information, you should “talk to your healthcare professional.”

Encephalitis / GBS / Multiple Sclerosis

Why did I pick these? I picked just these 3 possible outcomes for this posting because:

a) each is very serious

b) many people have no idea they are risking these when they get a shot

c) they’re illustrative of the serious risks inherent (but hidden) in the vaccine paradigm.

There are many-many-many additional serious possible outcomes to different vaccines. Anaphylaxis. Arthritis. Bell’s palsy. Cerebrovascular accident. Meningitis. Kawaski disease. Transverse myelitis. Etc. etc. etc.

I am going to suggest that you, the reader, do some of your own research, so as to uncover this for yourself.

** My main source of information for this posting is Neil Z. Miller’s hugely informative book Vaccine Safety Manual – For Concerned Families and Health Practitioners, with an equally hugely informative Foreword by Russell Blaylock, MD (retired neurosurgeon). As well, I have vaccine inserts (in hard copy) for several infant/childhood vaccines (Pediacel, a five-in-one with Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping cough, Polio, Hib); Prevnar (Pneu-C-13); Rotarix; MMR; & several different flu vaccines.  I also use the links I’ve provided above to go digging into some of the information online. Note that in Miller’s book, information is included not just from vaccine inserts, but also from injury reports lifted from VAERS (the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. More about VAERS in this posting).

Looking into vaccine monographs is certainly not rocket science! Anyone can do it. If you can read, you can research vaccines. If you have access to the Internet, you have access to the same information as I do. You can also research the VAERS database if you feel so inclined.


Encephalitis (brain swelling) is named in the following vaccine monographs (or in reports submitted to the VAERS vaccine injury reporting system):

  • Chickenpox

  • Flu

  • DTap / DTP / Tdap (I find this vaccine’s acronym a bit tough to keep up with)

  • Hep A

  • Hep B

  • Measles

  • Mumps

  • Pertussis

  • Rabies

  • Rubella

  • Smallpox

  • Yellow fever

“The principal cause of encephalitis in the United States today, and in other industrial countries as well, is childhood vaccination programs.” - Harris Coulter

Medical historian Harris Coulter, quoted in the Miller book Vaccine Safety Manual – For Concerned Families and Health Practitioners (Coulter is co-author with Barbara Loe Fisher of the 1985 book A Shot in the Dark).

GBS – Guillain-Barré Syndrome

Feel free to consult the Internet for a definition of Guillain-Barré Syndrome.

Miller’s book describes it as “a debilitating ailment characterized by muscular incapacitation and nervous system damage – symptoms that are virtually indistinguishable from polio.” (Miller book, page 52)

I note that online sources never mention that GBS may be associated with the following vaccines:

  • Chickenpox

  • Flu

  • Gardasil (i.e. HPV vaccine)

  • Hep A

  • Hep B

  • Hib

  • Japanese encephalitis

  • Measles

  • Meningococcal

  • Mumps

  • Pertussis (whooping cough)

  • Pneumococcal

  • Polio

  • Rabies

  • Rubella

  • Smallpox

  • Swine flu

  • Tetanus

  • Typhoid fever

  • Yellow fever

Multiple Sclerosis

MS is mentioned in the monographs (or as a side effect in the VAERS system) for:

  • Chickenpox

  • Hep A

  • Hep B

  • Rabies

  • Smallpox

** Interestingly on this, I consulted the Hep B monograph here, which I’d come to somehow through the NVIC site, which first landed me here (these searches can get a little dizzying & difficult or impossible to re-construct later).

I could not easily locate info about Hep B on the Canadian vaccine info site. Another day…

On Page 6 it says, in Section 5.8:

“Multiple Sclerosis

Results from 2 clinical studies indicate that there is no association between hepatitis B vaccination and the development of multiple sclerosis, and that vaccination with hepatitis B vaccine does not appear to increase the short-term risk of relapse in multiple sclerosis.”

But then on Page 8, in the section Nervous System Disorders, under the Heading Postmarketing Experience from the previous page, there is multiple sclerosis! Along with a great many other surely-to-be-avoided-at-all-costs possible outcomes.

Parenthetically, Hep B vaccine is given to newborn babies in the U.S. (and here in Canada, in New Brunswick, Northwest Territories and Nunavut) on the day of their birth (go here & scroll down to find info on vaccines given in Canada’s different provinces/territories).

Does this strike YOU as a good idea?

To Conclude

I now believe that herd mentality is our problem, vis-a-vis the vaccination paradigm. Not “herd immunity.”

We need to learn to do our own thinking, & to conduct our own research. Of course, now that searches for vaccine-related information are being censored/choked on the Internet/Facebook, it’s become more difficult to do this.

I suppose this is all the more reason why those of us who know a little more about the vaccine scene than the “average” citizen, have an extra responsibility to keep on talking & talking & talking about it … since our doctors are not telling us the truth. And other “health” professionals are not telling us the truth. & the mainstream media are certainly not telling us the truth.

We have to be our own truth-tellers & spreaders … no??


p.s. 2-month old babies in Canada are given this combination of vaccines at the so-called “well baby” visit.

  • DTaP-IPV-Hib - 5 vaccines in 1 shot (i.e. diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, Hib) - Pediacel combo insert here.

  • Pneumococcal C-13 (unable to locate this insert at the link for vaccines used in Canada. Could this be the one they are using?)

  • Rotavirus (oral) live virus vaccine (this one??)

In order to inform yourself about possible outcomes for your tiny 2-month old infant, it seems to me you would need to read each of the monographs for each of these vaccines, one by one. Then, you would need to feel comfortable taking all those risks from 7 different vaccines, all mixed up together – knowing that no science has ever been done to establish the safety of this practice of combinations. Combining Vaccines at One Visit is Not Safe (Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, Summer 2016) I learned from many years of activism (e.g. on the pesticide issue) that mixtures are impossible to assess for their synergistic effects. They act together in quite unpredictable ways.

You can find out what vaccines are given (in Canada) by starting here:

1. Vaccine Choice Canada site

2. Click on Resources in the list running across the top of the main page.

3. You will come to this page, where you can go province by province. (You can also go to the Government of Canada site here for this info.) In the U.S., you can consult this site, which does not appear to be up-to-date.

p.p.s. I knew none of this when my own children were babies. Heck, I only began learning about the truths of the vaccine paradigm 3 ½ years ago. It’s been a very steep learning curve. 

Additional Resources

There are many-many postings on this site, under the heading ‘On Vaccines’ on the right-hand side of the main page. The Vaccine Quotes & Science Quotes pages are likely relevant. I heartily recommend all these sites, as well:

** There are simply tons more great information sources out there! Still, each of these is a great starting place.
