Vaccines: Miscellany, A - Z

** This was posted on Dec. 3/16 ... but I keep adding new stuff. New sections, new resources, the occasional new graphic, recent news items - just now (Jan. 14/18), some new quotations (& items re: flu shots). Very definitely a work in progress!  Actually, I can't even begin to keep up with all the revelations & new studies & thoughtful commentary I am seeing. There is a tsunami of it; no exaggeration at all. As for the information here, I've put it all in alphabetical order. Some people may find it shocking to discover the topic is so complex & multi-faceted that this is even possible. That there is just so much to discuss...

This is my 11th posting about vaccines in recent months. It’s a mix-mash of items, some of them linked to in other postings. As I now know, there is simply an avalanche-worth of material out there about the real risks of vaccines. This is just a smattering, but I hope it is a useful smattering!

Note: there is plenty of overlap in these categories! Some items/links are relevant in more than one category. Be sure to scan through the whole alphabet here, or you may miss seeing something important. [Dec. 30/17. New separate topic sections added recently: Heavy Metals, Mandates,Tylenol, Whooping Cough.]

Disclaimer & p.s., really, on Feb. 19/17: I'm one year in now on learning about this issue, & have picked up quite a lot. As I keep on studying & learning more, I see that this listing is never quite adequate. Yet more categories are always needed! I'll likely keep right on adding! (& anyway, there are tons of other information sources out there! Simply tons...) I guess I also ought to add that this issue has buffaloed me entirely! I knew nothing, & what I've learned has shocked, stunned & horrified me. (I wrote about these feelings here.)

One really important thing I've learned along the way is that doctors themselves are given very minimal training about vaccines / vaccine science in medical school.

As one doctor has said:

“They don’t teach us about the ingredients, they don’t teach us about the studies behind it…what they teach us is that they’ve always been given.” (She then “went on to say that she ‘almost feels like an ass’ for having not understood vaccines better.")  Source (many more quotations from doctors below, in the section on Doctors)

** This is also key --- the removal of liability for Big Pharma (i.e., they no longer have to pay if they damage you/your child), & the resulting bump-up in the # of vaccinations being given to children.

** also note: there is an entire posting on this site with a bunch of graphics in it, in case you prefer your information that way. Pictures worth a thousand words, and all that...

Here is a link to a graphic that shows the bump-up in the vaccination schedule here in Ontario, where I live. You can find info about your province from this page on the Vaccine Choice Canada Web site.) Here is the deal in Ontario, bump-up-wise.




Aluminum in Vaccines





Big Pharma: enough money from the U.S. Gov't already?

“Does the Senate work for Big Pharma that hires the lobbyists and makes the campaign contributions or does the Senate work for American people who actually sent us here?” Sen. Elizabeth Warren wondered on the U.S. Senate floor Monday evening. (Nov. 28/16.)

Canadian Scene

The vaccine schedule in Canada is not as aggressive as that of the U.S. But as in the U.S., many more vaccines are being given than used to be the case, & they are being given in multiples (i.e., many different vaccines administered at one time). Doctors do not offer vaccine product inserts, & if you do obtain them & look them over, you're liable to be (appropriately) horrified at the possible side effects mentioned. Nor will your doctor inform you that giving so many vaccines at one time is not safe.

In addition, we do not have a coherent vaccine injury reporting system in Canada, nor can parents sue for compensation if their child is vaccine-injured (I believe the situation in Quebec differs from the other provinces). To put it plainly, there is no justification whatsoever for complacency vis-à-vis the vaccine situation here in Canada.

To find out what vaccines are administered (or recommended) in Canada (this varies from province to province), go to this spot.

The Vaccine Choice Canada Web site can likely tell you everything you need to know! Everything from soup to nuts, as the saying goes...

DPT Vaccine

Note: DPT stands for diptheria, pertussis (whooping cough) & tetanus. You'll need to check the sections here on whooping cough (just added) & tetanus also. Sometimes it's DTaP, sometimes it's called DTP. In any case, it's always about vaccination against diptheria, pertussis & tetanus. & there have been major risks with this vaccine - in whatever iteration - for DECADES.




Gardasil (HPV) vaccine






Heavy Metals

Important information from the U.S. government on heavy metals.

Heavy Metals Toxicity and the Environment (US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health)

"Because of their high degree of toxicity, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury rank among the priority metals that are of public health significance. These metallic elements are considered systemic toxicants that are known to induce multiple organ damage, even at lower levels of exposure. They are also classified as human carcinogens (known or probable) according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. This review provides an analysis of their environmental occurrence, production and use, potential for human exposure, and molecular mechanisms of toxicity, genotoxicity, and carcinogenicity."

(You have to pay attention to mercury exposure, & thimerosal (which is in many vaccines, still, whether in so-called "trace amounts" or not) is a mercury derivative. This is a big deal, reader. I recommend the World Mercury Project site for LOTS of relevant information on this topic. There's also more info below, on this site, in the section on Mercury.


Herd Immunity


    Injuries …

    Note: I was very surprised to discover, when I began digging into this issue, how many of my friends' families have been negatively affected by vaccines. I wrote about this in the posting Vaccines: My Friends’ Stories. Warriors

    Note also: if you scroll down, you'll find a section on Stories. Three families' stories that have really stood out for me.


    Lawsuits & MERCK TROUBLES



    ** See also relevant items on mandates in Doctors section, above.

    This refers to the increasing number of laws, in an increasing # of countries, making vaccinations mandatory. Perhaps not surprisingly, these laws are proceeding in parallel with the increasing spread of the actual truth about vaccine risks & the (increasingly widespread) knowledge about (very) widespread vaccine injuries.



    In Canada, a large 2011 Ontario study “found that one in 168 children ended up in the emergency room after MMR vaccination. Several children died during the three year study period. It is noteworthy that the study design allowed the “fewer than five deaths” to be discounted.[5,6] By comparison, Stats Canada records show that, in the 20 year period between 1990 and 2009, there were six deaths attributed to measles.[7] Extrapolating from these numbers, one could posit that more deaths occurred following MMR vaccine than from measles during this time frame.”

     “The co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. (We) all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room, and reviewed and went through all the hard copy documents that we had thought we should discard, and put them into a huge garbage can,” Thompson explained in an affidavit provided in 2014 to a member of a U.S. Congressional committee on science.

    “I have waited a long time to tell my story and I want to tell it truthfully. I was involved in deceiving millions of taxpayers regarding the potential negative side effects of vaccines. We lied about the scientific findings. The CDC can no longer be trusted to do vaccine safety work. Can’t be trusted to be transparent. The CDC can’t be trusted to police itself.” - CDC Senior scientist Dr. William Thompson, who began in 2013 to send what became 10,000 pages of CDC documents

    “Vaccines are held to a lower safety testing standard than pharmaceutical drugs…    The safety science behind vaccines is totally shady.” – Brandy Vaughan, former sales rep for Merck (from The Vaccine Panel: The Insider’s Report 

    "Vaccination isn't prevention. To the contrary, you are injecting into healthy bodies the very disease-causing agents you are so afraid of contracting. Nor does vaccination equate to bona fide immunity. The only guaranteed immunity it generates is for the vaccine manufacturers who are indemnified against the potentially catastrophic damages they cause." – from Sayer Ji, founder of GreenMedInfo

    “You couldn’t even construct a study that shows thimerosal is safe,” says Haley, who heads the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky. “It’s just too darn toxic. If you inject thimerosal into an animal, its brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish, the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one could inject it into an infant without causing damage.” From this article on the World Mercury Project site

    “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” – Upton Sinclair

    This refers to the fact that once you're vaccinated, you can "shed" the disease, meaning, you become a carrier & can cause others to get sick. Sheesh, eh??

    So ... the science is "settled," eh?

    QUOTE: The CDC and advocates for mandatory vaccination consistently repeat a dangerous mantra that finds no warranted basis in medical science. This monolithic industry, now a massive network of private and government institutions, state senates, and supported by a compliant media, want us to believe that science has finally settled the debate over vaccine safety and efficacy. All the data is in, so we are told, and no further research and discussion is necessary because vaccines have been officially ruled to pose no neurological and immunological risk to infants, children, pregnant mothers, adults and the elderly.

    This official policy is founded upon flawed premises and a primitive understanding about the complexities of the human body and its multifaceted immunological system. And this argument’s fallacy is actually quite simple. Valid science is never settled. The myth of “settled science,” which is especially endemic to the biological and medical sciences that rely on private financial interests, is sheer propaganda. Valid science, on the other hand, constantly seeks new discoveries to acquire further knowledge and greater understanding. The pursuit to fully comprehend the complexity of our biological, immunological and physiological systems, therefore, is in perpetual infinite regress.

    Today’s justifications for medical intervention, whether by drugs or vaccines, eventually become tomorrow’s barbarities as science further penetrates the hidden functions and operations of the human organism. Hence valid medical research should elicit new questions and not settle upon incomplete facts that are then proselytized as universal truths.

    A medical science that refuses to ask new questions and settles upon disputed beliefs to sustain an industry’s financial portfolio is Scientism, a quasi-faith-based creed now institutionalized to promulgate repressive laws. These laws then advance Scientism’s authority. Unfortunately, today this accurately represents the sad state of vaccine research and vaccination policy. Modern vaccine science, and conventional medicine in general, has morphed into a new fascism, a rigid doctrine that has sacrificed the foundations of scientific integrity on the altar of institutional greed, privilege and profit."

    Is the science settled? (2 minute YouTube; quite powerful!!)


    Stories: 3 that have really stood out for me

    ** there are simply tons of personal stories; please be sure to look under the Injuries heading to find multiple sources for families' vaccine injury stories.


    Sudden Infant death syndrome (SiDS)


    Tetanus Vaccine

    Dr. Russell Blaylock (a neurologist) says this: "Tetanus vaccine is probably one of the most ridiculous vaccines ever. Your chances of getting Tetanus are about the same as walking outta here and getting hit by a meteor. If you get a cut or puncture wound and you put peroxide on it, your chances of getting tetanus are zero because tetanus organism is anaerobic. It can not live in oxygen. Tetanus comes from the bowels of animals. As long as you don't have a sheep or a cow in your house, I don't think you're in any danger." (The documentary 'Trace Amounts' is very enlightening indeed on the subject of vaccines in general, mercury/thimerosal use history in particular, & specifically in the case of the man who made the documentary, the risks of the tetanus shot.)

    Thimerosal in Vaccines

    (see Mercury, above)

    • 131 Abstracts with Thimerosal Research
    • The book Master Manipulator: The Explosive True Story of Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC speaks to the issue of thimerosal in vaccines. Review of the book here
    • Book: Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak, by Robert F. Kennedy
    • Good quote: “You couldn’t even construct a study that shows thimerosal is safe,” says Haley, who heads the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky. “It’s just too darn toxic. If you inject thimerosal into an animal, its brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish, the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one could inject it into an infant without causing damage.” - from this article on the World Mercury Project site.

    Quotes of the Day for this post:

    “Please ask questions and make the time to go see the documentary Vaxxed. Form your own opinions, do your own research, and then talk to your physician.   Demand to hear from Dr. Thompson, pass this information along to your loved ones, and start these conversations. We all deserve answers, and this is the only way to get any.
    People keep asking me if I’m scared to speak about this.  My realest fear is that we will continue to assume that these moms are making this stuff up.” – Rachael L Ross, M.D., PhD
    “Vaccines are held to a lower safety testing standard than pharmaceutical drugs…    The safety science behind vaccines is totally shady.” – Brandy Vaughan, former sales rep for Merck (from 'The Vaccine Panel: The Insider’s Report')
