Seems common sense, does it not? But our government keeps pushing the opposite. Action Alert!
The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons recently reported a link between the number of simultaneous vaccinations a child receives and the risk of serious injury or death. The report cites a 2012 study that looked at raw data from the government Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
The authors looked at VAERS data on infants from 1990 through 2010—about 38,000 reports in total. The study found that infants receiving multiple vaccines concurrently, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die, compared with infants who received fewer vaccinations in one visit. Age was also a factor: adverse effects were more likely to lead to hospitalization or death in younger infants.
The CDC recommends a combination of up to eight vaccines during a single visit to the pediatrician. Medical literature makes it clear that this is not for the child. It is because parents cannot be trusted to bring their children back again and again to receive the full battery of vaccines. The government’s approach to vaccine administration, with one shot piled on top of another on top of another, has never been tested for safety in clinical trials.
The author points out that skeptics of using VAERS data to draw conclusions about the safety of vaccines claim that the database doesn’t prove conclusively that the adverse events reported in VAERS are caused by vaccination. But if that’s the case, why does the CDC regularly twist VAERS data to justify its recommendations?
For example, almost 9% of the adverse reactions reported for the live attenuated influenza vaccine, for example, are classified as “serious” (fatalities, cardiovascular events, neurological debilities, etc), yet CDC researchers concluded from these same adverse event reports that the results were “reassuring.” Reassuring to whom?
Speaking of the flu vaccine, a new study once again raises the question of whether mercury (still used as a flu shot preservative) increases the risk of autism.
Despite good reasons to be skeptical—and despite clear evidence of harm—the government has doubled down on vaccines, pushing more and more products on younger and younger children. The CDC appears to us to be a taxpayer-funded sales rep for industry, not a public watchdog. Given that the risk to our babies and children is grave, it is scandalous that this is allowed to go on.
Action Alert! In one month, state general assemblies will reconvene. Some of them will be considering Big Pharma-supported bills to severely restrict exemptions to mandatory vaccinations. Contact your state legislators and ask them to oppose any bill that would restrict a parent’s fundamental right to protect his or her child from a mandatory vaccine. (Note: This action alert will feature in all three of our vaccine articles in this week’s Pulse.) Please send your message immediately!
