Like what goes in them, are they really necessary..ect) Or do you just go in and get them when its time.

Have you ever had problems with BAD side effects or know anyone that has??

Doing some research I found this…not


The general public is essentially unaware of the true number of people -- mostly children -- who have been permanently damaged or killed by vaccines. In fact, most parents would be surprised to learn that the government has a secret computer database filled with several thousand names of disabled and dead babies, children who were healthy and alive just prior to receiving the vaccines. Of course, the medical establishment and federal government don't readily disclose this information because they know it's likely to frighten parents into seeking other ways to protect their children. In other words, parents just might think this issue through on their own and decide to reject the shots.
Federal Admission of Vaccine Risks:
In 1986, Congress officially acknowledged the reality of vaccine-caused injuries and death by creating and passing The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (Public Law 99-660). The safety reform portion of this law requires doctors to provide parents with information about the benefits and risks of childhood vaccines prior to vaccination, and to report vaccine reactions to federal health officials. Doctors are required by law to report suspected cases of vaccine damage. To simplify and centralize this legal requisite, federal health officials established the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) -- operated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Ideally, doctors would abide by this federal law and report adverse events following the administration of a vaccine. However, the FDA recently acknowledged that 90 percent of doctors do not report vaccine reactions. They are choosing to subvert this law by claiming the adverse event was, in their opinion, not related to the shot. In fact, every year between 12,000 and 14,000 reports of adverse reactions to vaccines are made to the FDA (data initially accessible only through the Freedom of Information Act). These figures include hospitalizations, irreversible brain damage, and hundreds of deaths. Considering that these numbers may represent just 10 percent, the true figures could be as high as 140,000 adverse events annually. However, even this figure could be conservative. According to Dr. David Kessler, former head of the Food and Drug Administration, "Only about 1 percent of serious events [adverse drug reactions] are reported to the FDA." Thus, it is entirely possible that millions of people are adversely affected by mandatory vaccines every year.
Maybe it doesn't matter that doctors won't report vaccine reactions, because the federal government won't investigate them. Government officials claim VAERS was designed to "document" suspected cases of vaccine damage. No attempt is being made to confirm or deny the reports. Parents are not being interviewed, and the vaccines that preceded the severe reactions are not being recalled. Instead, new waves of unsuspecting parents and innocent children are being subjected to the damaging shots.
Who Pays for Compensation?
In order to pay for vaccine injuries and deaths, a surtax is levied on mandated vaccines. When parents elect to have their children vaccinated, a portion of the money they spend on each vaccine goes into a Congressional fund to compensate them if their child is hurt or killed by the shot.
The compensation portion of the law awards up to $250,000 if the individual dies, or millions of dollars to cover lifelong medical bills, pain, and suffering in the case of a living (but brain-damaged) child. To date, more than $1 BILLION has already been paid out for hundreds of injuries and deaths caused by mandated vaccines. Thousands of cases are pending.
Vaccine Injury Compensation Claims do not include private settlements, or the many families that become dependent on public assistance for medical and living expenses because of vaccine injuries. Therefore, taxpayers subsidize vaccine manufacturers and the federal government by paying for their vaccine-liability expenses.
How Are Vaccines Made?
Vaccine production is a disgusting procedure. To begin, one must first acquire the disease germ -- a toxic bacterium or a live virus. To make a "live" vaccine, the live virus must be attenuated, or weakened for human use. This is accomplished by serial passage -- passing the virus through animal tissue several times to reduce its potency. For example, measles virus is passed through chick embryos, polio virus through monkey kidneys, and the rubella virus through human diploid cells -- the dissected organs of an aborted fetus! "Killed" vaccines are "inactivated" through heat, radiation, or chemicals.
The weakened germ must then be strengthened with adjuvants (antibody boosters) and stabilizers. This is done by adding drugs, antibiotics, and toxic disinfectants to the concoction: neomycin, streptomycin, sodium chloride, sodium hydroxide, aluminum hydroxide, aluminum hydrochloride, sorbitol, hydrolized gelatin, formaldehyde, and thimerosal (a mercury derivative).
Aluminum, formaldehyde, and mercury are extremely toxic substances with a long history of documented hazardous effects. Studies confirm again and again that microscopic doses of these substances can lead to cancer, neurological damage, and death. Yet, each of them may be found in childhood vaccines.
In addition to the deliberately planned additives, unanticipated matter may contaminate the shots. For example, during serial passage of the virus through animal cells, animal RNA and DNA -- foreign genetic material -- is transferred from one host to another. Because this biological matter is injected directly into the body, researchers say it can change our genetic makeup.
Undetected animal viruses may jump the species barrier as well. This is exactly what happened during the 1950s and 1960s when millions of people were infected with polio vaccines that were contaminated with the SV-40 virus undetected in the monkey organs used to prepare the vaccines. SV-40 (Simian Virus #40 -- the 40th such virus detected since researchers began looking), is considered a powerful immunosuppressor and trigger for HIV, the name given to the AIDS virus. It is said to cause a clinical condition similar to AIDS, and has been found in brain tumors, leukemia, and other human cancers as well. Researchers consider it to be a cancer-causing virus.
What happens next, once this foul concoction -- live viruses, bacteria, toxic substances, and diseased animal matter -- is created? This witch's brew is forced into the healthy child.
Satanic Rituals:
Dr. Robert Mendelsohn often criticized modern medicine for its sanctimonious doctrine. He argued that "doctors are the priests who dispense holy water in the form of inoculations" to ritually initiate our loyalty into the larger medical industry. Dr. Richard Moskowitz agrees: "Vaccines have become sacraments of our faith in biotechnology. Their efficacy and safety are widely seen as self-evident and needing no further proof."
Others see a link between vaccinations and satanic rituals or witchcraft, where animals are sacrificed and their organs brewed in a hellish concoction of horrid substances: voodoo medicine by 21st century mad scientists. Sadly, our children are their unwilling subjects as society is slowly devoured by their insatiable appetite for human experimentation.

I think it's true to say that people have forgotten how serious these things are, I wonder why........Oh yeah it's because since the development of vaccines children aren't dying or becoming disabled!!!

Yes, I did a ton of research. My son's dad is also a nurse practitioner who is one year away from being an MD....he's done a hell of a lot of research too.

If you've ever seen me in a vaccination debate...you'd see all the research I've done and still continue to do. I'm too lazy too look it up now, but multiple times I have posted pre-vaccine death/severe illness rates from disease and post-vaccine death/severe illnes rates from those same diseases. It's amazing that so many buy into conspiracy theories without having read true statistics.



I never take any medicine or medical treatment without extensive research. In fact, I rarely do anything in life without over-studying or over-analyzing...it drives people crazy, but it's just how I do things.





*Edited to add*

We also never had any reactions to the vaccines and I don't know anybody who ever has.

No I didn't research before giving Eric a full two years of shots, but then after seeing threads here on it I did delve into it alot before Fierna was born.

I only read as far as the "governments secret list of..."
That's Bullshit

Of course the risks outweigh the benefits, I have done plenty of research and I am 100% comfortable with my decision to vaccinate.

People who are having kids now never knew how serious those diseases were because they were eradicated or severely reduced years ago!

All I want to say is that the site you read this on is a .com and any Tom, Dick, or Harry can have/create a .com website and then post whatever they want to it. Real organizations that have to have real evidence to back up their claims will have a .org, .edu, etc., type of website because you have to be an accredited organization to receive a site like those. Just food for thought the next time anyone decides to do research.

no i didn't research before i vaxed, i didn't even know there was a controversy about it. i figure vaccines save lives, so why put my childs life up for roulette?

after realizing that people didn't vaccine, i then did some research, and don't find any compelling evidence to not vaccinate. every argument has and can be refuted.

i'd also like to point out that the reactions reported to VAERS may or may not be because of vaccines. ANY reaction of any sort (may or may not be vaccine related)is reported, and then they are investigated.

i also found this today coincidentally enough, and i feel it is appropriate for this discussion. you all remember the pro-cheerleader who supposidly had all sorts of crazy reactions to her flu shot, made her convulse and such. well it turns out that it's not so much like that...http://youtu.be/QOmNuIYFD7g

Allow me to add about the whooping cough thing....

My husband's ex also has had ALL of her children (including my stepson, so yeah, my kids, her kids, everyones kids) down with it. One of the mothers at the daycare asked if she could bring her children around for a playdate so they could catch it to become immune. One of those children was only a year old. Yes, there really are true morons.

Oh, and response to the OP, yes, I have done my research, and the government conspiracy theory is the weakest of all the arguments I have ever heard. Basically, my research has led me to believe that the benefits outweigh the risks with the majority of vaccinations. I can see the benefits in delaying certain vaccinations (I have done so myself) and spreading them out a little more (i.e. one at a time), but refusing them altogether? Unless you have a genuine medical reason, there is no excuse.

My father had polio when he was a kid....he was one of the lucky ones. He only had his chest muscles waste away. He was lucky it didn't go further. People who don't vaccinate against something like this obviously don't know anyone who has ever had it. I guarantee most people my age know of someone who has had polio.

Heck, my entire family has just gone through a bout of whooping cough because it has mutated as a result of lack of vaccination. So now it has enough hosts to take hold and mutate. Thank you people.

Smack upside the head.

Yeah I don't actually know ANYONE who doesn't vaccinate. My grandma had polio and I refuse to not vaccinate for that.

Yes I did some research but I also know someone who almost died from measles,someone who is severely disabled because they had polio as a child and I suffered from many illness' as a child as I was not vaccinated. On the other hand I do not know anyone who has more than a slight fever and/or slight rash from vaccinations.

I did my research, but felt both before and after doing so that the benefits far outweigh any associated risks. Both my girls are up-to-date on their vaccinations, and my husband and I get our boosters when we need to.

My sister was born with a number of severe birth defects (including an ano-vaginal fistula - that is where the muscle wall between the anus and vagina is missing, and holes in her heart requiring multiple heart surgeries, etc) - she had these defects because my mother caught a MILD case of german measles while she was pregnant - from someone who was not vaccinated.

I have seen first-hand the damage that can be done to someone when exposed to these diseases.

Like Amber I researched the heck out of it starting when I was pregnant. I have a couple of vax-phobic acquaintances and it was something that was always talked about. The more research I did, the more people I spoke to who were educated about this topic, the more confidence I had that vaccinations were the right decision. When I started my research, I was doubtful that I would vaccinate. By the time my daughter was ready for her first set of shots, I was confident that vaccinating was a good decision. I spread them out a bit more than the schedule calls for, because of illogical paranoia that I couldn't get rid of, but not really for any good, supported, evidence-based reason. She's had her flu vaccines, but still no chicken pox. I am still researching and pondering that one.

After the drama last year and all the kids having to be admitted to hospital I'm a bit wary. Also they don't get bad flu's and they do need to build up some resistance to bugs.

I have had all 3 of mine vaccinated and none of them have had any reactions. I would rather give my child a vaccine than to have them die of a disease that could've been prevented.
The only vaccination my kids don't get is the Flu shot. Just as well because last year here in Aus there was a bad batch and some kids got very sick from it.

[deleted account]

Yes, I researched the hell out of it! J was vaccinated before the Autism/vaccine theory was officially debunked (btw, it has officially been proven that the rise in Autism cannot be linked to vaccinations).

We chose to do a delayed vax schedule and have all of the vaccines administered individually. Yes, you do have to pay a good bit more for this, attend about 3 times as many doctors visits, and your child will get "jabbed" more times, but at the time I felt it was the safest option for my son.

Current studies indicate that my precautions were unwarranted, but didn't hurt either.

There is NO proof at all that doctors are failing to report vaccine related reactions, so the article kind of lost its credibility for me when I got to that section, but I read the whole thing. Most of it is unfounded.

Forget the Long article, Can you at least answer my question Amber?

Personally I never did the research myself, I was just curious. I was also reading the horror stories that some parents have gone thru. I have not experienced those things myself with vaccinating my boys, but it is sad that others have.

There is no mercury in the vaccines anymore. And if there is you can request not to have it. I've done plenty of research and I found the risks outweigh the benefits.

My kids have never had a reaction. I know people who's kids have had febrile seizures but that was from a high fever. I don't think the shots have ANYTHING to do with autism either. There is a very good study about this. Anyways that's my stance.
