Vaccines: Miscellany, A - Z

** This was originally posted in December 2016 ... but simply scads of material has been added since then. New categories, resources, graphics, recent news items. Additions to this posting are made frequently (but not frequently enough! I simply can’t keep up). It’s become a bit of a dog’s breakfast along the way - because there is just such an over-abundance of information available. Maybe this posting is mostly a jumping off point. Helpful for readers to grasp the true A - Z nature of this complex topic - & be encouraged to set off on some deeper research.

HOW THIS POST IS ORGANIZED: The information categories below are in alphabetical order. Some people may be surprised to discover that this topic is so complex & multi-faceted that this is even possible ... that there is just so much to discuss... but as you'll see, there definitely is! Note on March 5/18: I now notice this: while there's a ton of information here (simply tons, & kind of overwhelming, really), I don't bring it all together here in any coherent way. Shoot! But I guess that's what happens when we hive things off into narrow categories. Anyway. Many of the links one might pursue from here will help you to do the sewing together work. & my own site has some of that synthesis stuff, e.g. in the 30 Things You May Not Know About Vaccines posting. I also highly recommend the recent postings Vaccination: Dissenting Doctors Have Their Say & Dear Kate/Expectant Parent.

[When I posted this...It was] my 11th posting about vaccines in recent months [there are now 30+ postings - to find them go the blog's main page, where they're listed chronologically on the right-hand side, underneath the Quotes selection]. 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 a useful one!

Note: there is much overlap in these categories! Some items/links are relevant (& thus listed) in more than one category. Be sure to scan through the whole alphabet, or you may miss something important.

One super-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 absolutely key --- the removal of liability for Big Pharma by the U.S. Congress in 1986 (i.e., pharmaceutical companies no longer have to pay in the U.S. if they damage you/your child), & the resulting bump-up in the # of vaccinations being given to children. (The scene in Canada is different. No release from liability, but no vaccine injury compensation program either. Lawsuits seldom succeed. Those that do? Records are sealed, so the public does not hear about the results. Big Pharma wins once again!)

Mom Dad did you know.jpg

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

There is 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.

** An important note I am adding on Jan. 28/18: please grasp this important point. Not all people involved in questioning vaccine safety are the same. Some are "religious" (even fundamentalist); many are not. Some are climate change skeptics/deniers, or pro-choice advocates (vis-a-vis abortion, I mean); many are not. We are not a homogeneous group of people! We come in all cultures, genders, shapes, sizes, races, religions (or lack thereof), income levels, political affiliations and professions. Nor does every single person you speak to about vaccines agree on all points withIN the vaccine debate. I believe what we all share is the view that it's important to inform ourselves about vaccine contents, efficacy, possible side effects, & safety - and that given the risks we learn about, it is critical that we be given our own choice about whether or not to submit ourselves (and our children) to the inherent risks. I might add that the term"anti-vaxxer" is thrown around a great deal these days. It fails to take into account that many of the so-called "anti-vaxxers" are actually EX-vaxxers. That is, they had themselves (or their child/ren) vaccinated, they (or their child/ren) was or were injured (or died), & now they have educated themselves about vaccine contents & safety. Short YouTube here on the ex-vaxxer phenomenon (2 minutes; this is on Facebook).

  • Allergy-related information on MedScience Research

  • Allergy epidemic explained! Heather Fraser, author of The Peanut Allergy Epidemic, gives a lecture in January 2018. Explains how long the issue of vaccine-related allergy has been understood (hint: a long, long time), how hard it is to find information (she's a dedicated historical researcher, so she knows how to go about it), why there has been a virtual explosion in allergies among young children since the early 1990s. Easy to listen to & very enlightening! (45-minute YouTube).

  • The Peanut Allergy Epidemic, by Heather Fraser

    • "Heather has done for allergies what Jared Diamond did for broader concepts of human history in his book, Guns, Germs and Steel. Although she is not a scientist, she used her gift for synthesizing a wide range of scientific disciplines and history to arrive at a simple, coherent, integrated, and common sense hypothesis that, for the first time, convincingly explains the sudden onset of the allergy epidemic. Her theory accounts for its steep rise in America in the early 1990s, and its subsequent movement from western nations into the developing world." Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. in his Foreword to the book.

He hasn’t had to look very hard."

"The problems I’ve discussed are not limited to psychiatry, although they reach their most florid form there. Similar conflicts of interest and biases exist in virtually every field of medicine, particularly those that rely heavily on drugs or devices. It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine."  Dr. Marcia Angell (MD)

Canadian Scene

The vaccine schedule in Canada is not quite as aggressive as that of the U.S.

However, 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.

Very disturbing at present is the (very) aggressive push by the educational system to bully parents into having their children vaccinated - even threatening suspension of children who are not "up-to-date" on the vaccination schedule. Vaccinations are not mandatory in Canada.

The main page of the Vaccine Choice Canada Web site has plenty of information on this topic - as well as on all topics related to vaccines. Everything from soup to nuts, as the saying goes... Please be sure to check it out! It’s your best source of information on the vaccine scene in Canada. (VCC also has a Facebook page, & a Twitter account.)

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.

Encephalitis/ encephalopathy

Encephalitis means brain swelling. I’m reluctant to provide a dictionary definition here, since dictionaries (or Wikipedia) neglect to mention that encephalitis or brain swelling is a possible side effect of a great many vaccines. I was taking a quick tour through the incredibly helpful book Vaccine Safety Manual 
for Concerned Families
 and Health Practitioners
 - Guide to Immunization Risks & Protection (by Neil Miller) & noted mentions of encephalitis in the book’s foreword (by neurologist Dr. Russell Blaylock)

This is a document from a U.S. health agency.

pertussis, rabies, smallpox & yellow fever vaccines. There was also some mention of epilepsy in there (pg. 100). It’s really important that folks demand, & read, the “monograph” or “insert” that comes with vaccines. Medical professionals almost never offer these proactively, so we “patients” must ask for/insist on them. Here are links to the MMR vaccine monograph. One from GSK. One from Merck. Read them, please, & note the mention of encephalitis (along with a very great many other possible negative outcomes or side effects). These long documents make for some pretty sobering (but I would say essential) reading. Encephalitis is kind of a big deal. (Um. So is death. So is Guillain–Barré syndrome…)


If you don't want your child to be vaccinated, but still be able to attend daycare/public schools in Ontario, you will need to obtain an "exemption" you can provide to the local health unit. There is plenty of information about exemptions on the Vaccine Choice Canada Web site, right here.

I just ran across this info about obtaining exemptions in California. [note on May 31/19. This info is now likely obsolete. Things are baaaadddd in California, vis-a-vis mandatory vaccines/school attendance.]

The topic of fever comes up when discussing illness, childhood or otherwise. While most of us (including medical personnel) were taught to fear & suppress fevers, it turns out they have an important role in the operation of our immune system. Here are several illuminating items on the subject of fever.

“Glyphosate, often sold under the brand name “Roundup,” is the most widely used weed killer in the U.S.” “In a series of articles, my colleague Anthony Samsel and I have been exploring the connection between glyphosate and a number of diseases, including multiple sclerosis, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer.” – from Dr. Stephanie Seneff in ‘Weeding Out Vaccine Toxins: MMR, Glyphosate, and the Health of a Generation.’ I recommend you go to the Children’s Health Defense site, scroll down right to the bottom & put “glyphosate” in the Search bar. Plenty of relevant info there. Here is another relevant item: Glyphosate + Aluminum + Mercury = Autism, lecture by Dr. Stephanie Seneff, MIT, on YouTube (January 2018).

Dr. Seneff interviewed about glyphosate here.





Heavy Metals

** Important information 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.

Wow. This is a weekly TV show that shows on Facebook & YouTube. The past 2 episodes have simply blown my mind - & taught me lots! I've learned a lot in the past 2 years - really a lot ... but there is always more to learn about this issue. Always, always, always more.... Consider watching some Highwire episodes & get your own mind blown. In a good way! Most recent episode is here. Tons about flu, flu deaths, Tamiflu, religious exemptions, vaccine science (& how fraudulent it is) - & more. Don't you DARE be complacent if you're a Canadian reader! Go to the section (in this posting) on the Canadian scene. The scene is bad - worldwide. We have to educate ourselves, & we have to speak up (and ACT!!) for our children. Highwire (& Del Bigtree)? A very powerful force...

HPV Vaccine

(see above info under 'Gardasil' heading)



Dissolving Illusions - Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History, by Suzanne Humphries, MD and Roman Bystrianyk is a myth-shattering book about the history of human disease & the vaccines that supposedly put an end to them. Every doctor on the planet needs to read this book. Well ... so do you! At the book's Web site you'll find the full foreword & intro sections of the book, as well as chapter headings, photos and graphs. You will be flabbergasted by the true history of disease & vaccines!




informed consent / know your rights

Basic to "informed consent" is knowing what vaccines contain & what their possible risks & side effects are. Since the medical profession does not provide us with this information proactively, we must take responsibility ourselves for learning what we need to know.

Beyond that, we do have rights as individuals, & as parents, to choose what is put into our bodies. Here are some links to relevant information about our inalienable right to safeguard our own health. All this is becoming increasingly relevant to be aware of as the movement toward mandatory vaccination gathers steam. 

Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

Life, liberty and security of person

7. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.

Health Care Consent Act of Ontario (1996)

No treatment without consent
(1) A health practitioner who proposes a treatment for a person shall not administer the treatment, and shall take reasonable steps to ensure that it is not administered, unless,

  1. (a)  he or she is of the opinion that the person is capable with respect to the treatment, and the person has given consent; or

  2. (b)  he or she is of the opinion that the person is incapable with respect to the treatment, and the person’s substitute decision-maker has given consent on the person’s behalf in accordance with this Act. 1996, c. 2, Sched. A, s. 10 (1).

Nuremberg Code

1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that, before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject, there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person, which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment. The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.

The Declaration of Helsinki & the UNESCO Declaration on Bioethics also have relevant principles regarding our rights to protect our own bodies & health from forced interventions.

The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) "is actively pursuing several avenues to improve the health and wellbeing of our population by exposing shortcomings with our vaccine program."

& check out the Physicians for Informed Consent.



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 that links to the stories of three families that are very compelling (a tiny-tiny-tiny smattering of the information that is out there, of course).



Vaccines (like any pharmaceutical product) come with a great long, wide sheet of tissue-thin paper inside, telling you about how to administer them, what the possible side effects are, & so on. The medical establishment does not provide these to you. You have to ask for them. Well, INSIST is more like it, actually. But you need to ask for these well BEFORE you allow a medical professional to stick a needle in either you or your child. 'cos there's quite a bit of reading involved, the print is small, & the most dire information is generally saved for the very end. Example: MMR vaccine. Check it out! ** Be sure to read Pg. 6, Warnings & Precautions (where you are warned that "severe allergic reactions including anaphylaxis can occur after administration...") & then Pg. 28, where seizures and inflammation of the nervous system are mentioned.  (I find vaccine inserts by going to the Got Your Flu Shot? site, then clicking on 'All Vaccine Inserts' & then clicking on the Canadian flag icon. & then scrolling around to find the particular one I'm looking for. It's an illuminating activity! Full of surprises for the uninitiated, I must say...) Informed consent means  becoming informed before you roll up your sleeve! Or bare your child's thighs. & it's entirely likely the medical "professional" who gives you the jab, has not read the information her/himself. It's really very much up to you, Reader!

Note also: infants are given multiple vaccines at one time. Which means you need to ask your MD for ALL the “inserts” for ALL the different vaccines being given at one so-called “well baby” visit. Since ‘Combining Childhood Vaccines at One Visit Is Not Safe’ (Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, Summer 2016), best to check this all out well ahead of time. It’s too late to take the shots back, once they’ve been injected!

Oh & btw here is the insert for Vitamin K, a shot of which is given to babies at birth, & which you are/were never even told about! Must-see!!





** 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 too 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. Regrettably, this section is not being kept up-to-date. There is a TON going on, on this front. I post items about it regularly on Facebook, but don’t have enough time to keep this updated. (There are several quite recent items here, though, as of March 31/19.)



** See also MMR section, below

** The recent posting Measles Resources (posted Feb. 28/19) is more up-to-date, with many recent entries. & also Measles & Vaccination: 1 thing we can ALL agree on! may be helpful.

*** Be sure to visit Med Science Research to check out the scientific papers there on measles!

*** SUPER IMPORTANT!!!! Also be sure to read the product "monograph," which you can find here. Pay particular attention to the top of Pg. 6 'Warnings and Precautions' & Pg. 28 on 'Side effects & what to do about them.' Find ALL monographs (for Canada) here.


Media Blackout on vaccine issue

** It's important to understand that the media fail to tell the truth about a great many things - not just vaccines! Fascinating short interview here with James O'Keefe, with Project Veritas, & author of  American Pravda, about increasing manipulation of media / social media. Of course too, there is the old, always-inescapable truth that “He who pays the piper, calls the tune.” It is the advertisers who really determine the editorial policy of the outlets they place their ads in. And then there is this:

Media Domination.jpg

2 relevant quotations about media’s supposed “independence” & “objectivity” - 1 recent, 1 quite old indeed.


‘The pharmaceutical industry is so powerful,' RFK Jr explained. 'They give $5.4 billion a year to the media. They’ve gotten rid of the lawyers, so there is no legal interest in those cases. They have really been able to control the debate and silence people like me.' Source.

This one from 1880:

“There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.

There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.

The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?

We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”

Mercury (thimerosal) in Vaccines

** see also Thimerosal, below

Trace of Thimerosal.jpg

“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

Mitochondrial Disorder & MTHFR

I know almost nothing about these 2 things, but know enough (now) to know that both are very important vis-a-vis vaccines/vaccine injury, & that I will be having to learn more. (There is never any end to the learning on this topic. The topic is bottomless, the learning endless.)

2 short YouTubes about MTHFR, both narrated by MDs.

Mitochondrial disorder. Not sure where to send you on this one. You CAN go to the Children’s Health Defense site, scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the Search bar, & put the term in & see what comes up. Okay? That will have to do for now, from me. (Sorry!?)

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”  – Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world. (Source)

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.”  – Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (Source)

“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

(Oops. Sorry! This link is not cooperating. But if you go to the link & put Zimmerman in the Search bar, the Zimmerman interview will pop up.)



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; who knew?? Shedding defined.


Shingles (see also above, under chickenpox)

Simpsonwood meeting in 2000

A secret meeting attended by CDC staff, government officials, pharmaceutical industry. At which CDC revealed they had science confirming the vaccine/autism link (not just vaccines & autism: vaccines & a host of now-epidemic childhood conditions). You can read the transcript & also watch a short documentary about it (or just read item # 3 below; it contains the text of the documentary).


The truth about smallpox & early vaccine history can be found here. Resistance to vaccines goes back to the 1800s!

Smallpox Illusions - history from 1797 - 2005. <Fabulous!!>

“The Leicester Anti-Vaccination League was formed in 1869.” From Leicester: Sanitation vs. Vaccination. Check it out! It will blow your mind. Many good graphics here.

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."

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)

** You can find this monograph or “insert” online    here   . This is the DTap 5-in-1 vaccine used in Canada. 2-month olds will be given this vaccine at the 2-month “well baby” visit.

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 also 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.

  • Studies that CDC claims exonerate thimerosal use ... & why they do no such thing

  • “Thimerosal Is Still a Major Vaccine Ingredient

    In the early 2000s there was a major push to remove thimerosal from vaccines, but it never took the form of law. Instead, vaccine makers were encouraged to reduce or eliminate thimerosal in their vaccines on a voluntary basis. Some did so, but according to Grundvig, even vaccines that claim to be thimerosal-free are not entirely devoid of it.
    “If you read the labels, it says 'thimerosal-depleted' … They remove [thimerosal] in the process. It's filtered out, but it's not filtered out 100 percent. There's still thimerosal in all of the thimerosal-containing vaccines as there were before, just a lot less. However, in the flu vaccine, it's full bore thimerosal.
    It's the cheapest and fastest way to make it. I don't think that vaccine makers are interested in changing the 20th century recipe to making vaccines. It's cheap and fast. That's all they care about. They do not care about safety. They don’t care about children's health. With poor children’s health, they are able to take care of children, on the other end … with drugs and treatments and so forth. They continuously make money off every American citizen out there,” Grundvig says.”  From Master Manipulator: The Explosive True Story of Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC

Vitamin K

Yeah, I know, I didn't know anything about the Vitamin K shot given at birth either (it is not a vaccine, but an injection. One they don’t tell you about). Have a look at the product monograph or "insert." Reading vaccine "inserts" is a must-do! See also the Inserts section above for more on how utterly essential it is to read this material!

There is an 18-minute interview here with a young Mom, about the Vitamin K shot. If you watch it, other YouTubes on that topic will also come up.

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')
