Vaccines: Miscellany, A - Z

** This was posted on Dec. 3/16 ... but I continue to add new material from time to time. New sections, new resources, recent news items. Very definitely a work in progress!  Actually, I can't keep up. The revelations & new studies & thoughtful commentary I am seeing?  There is a lot of it! (So much thoughtful commentary, in fact, I just added that as a category, below [Feb. 18/17]. It's all in alphabetical order; scroll down!)

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 perhaps a useful smattering. I hope so!

Note: plenty of overlap in these categories! Some items/links are relevant in more than one category. Be sure to scan the whole alphabet of categories here, or you may miss seeing something important.

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 not adequate. Yet more categories are needed (e.g. one on vaccine "mandates," i.e., the fact that increasingly we are being browbeaten or even legislated into getting vaccines). I'll keep 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 key 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

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 think the situation in Quebec may differ 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.

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





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

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."

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')
