Vaccine risks for you or your child can range from zero to 100 percent depending upon the genes you were born with; your microbiome DNA; the environment you live in; your age and health at the time of vaccination, and the type and how many vaccines you get. 1 2

Vaccines are not safe or effective for everyone because we are not all the same and we do not all respond the same way to pharmaceutical products like vaccines. 3 4

Our response to infectious diseases and the risk for complications can also vary, depending upon our genes, environment, and age and health at the time of infection. 5 That is why malnourished, vitamin deficient children living in impoverished environments, for example, are at higher risk for complications from gastrointestinal, respiratory and other childhood infections. 6 7 8

Vaccinators Do Not Know If the Odds Will Be in Your Favor

The ends justify the meansThe doctor or nurse giving vaccines to you or your child does not know whether the odds will be in your favor. You may get vaccinated and have no reaction or your immune system and brain function could be severely compromised. 9 10 The scientific literature is clear about that fact and so is Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court, which have declared vaccines to be “unavoidably unsafe” and shielded the pharmaceutical industry from vaccine injury lawsuits. 11 12 13

Since 1988, there have been thousands of children and adults in America who have suffered brain inflammation and other long recognized vaccine reactions and have been awarded $3 billion dollars in vaccine injury compensation. There are thousands more, who have been unable to secure federal compensation for their vaccine injuries. 14 15

Vaccines Recommended and Given in Vacuum of Scientific Knowledge

But doctors and nurses are not taught about the genetic, biological and environmental high risk factors that could make you or your child more vulnerable to experiencing disabling vaccine complications. Vaccines are being recommended and given in a vacuum of knowledge and vaccine policymakers know it. As many Institute of Medicine committees have repeatedly pointed out in published reports spanning a quarter century, there are huge gaps in vaccine safety science. 16 17 18 19 20

Vaccine safety research is not a priority because long ago public health officials made a calculated decision that the lives of those harmed by vaccines are expendable in order to pursue what they consider to be a more important goal: the eradication of a long list of infectious microorganisms through compulsory vaccine use. 21 22 23 When vaccine risks turn out to be 100 percent for you or your child, you are expected to quietly accept that you are unavoidable collateral damage in the war on microorganisms. 24 25  26

Almost No Medical Condition Qualifies for Medical Vaccine Exemption

This cruel utilitarian rationale, also known as “the ends justifies the means,” has been used by public health officials and medical trade groups to narrow the medical vaccine exemption so that, today, almost no medical condition qualifies as an “official” reason (contraindication) for a doctor to grant someone a medical exemption to vaccination. 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 At the same time, there are no good biological mechanism studies or large clinical trials validating the safety of severely restricting the medical vaccine exemption. But, then, there is no independent oversight on the quality and quantity of the science used to make vaccine policies and laws in the U.S. either. 36 37 38

Basically, the Centers for Disease Control now tells doctors that a medical vaccine exemption should only be granted if you are one of the estimated 320,000 children and adults annually receiving chemotherapy; 39 40 or one of the estimated 47,000 Americans who have had a recent organ or blood cell transplant; 41 42 or your child is one of the 40 to 100 children born every year with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency, known as SCID. 43

Once you are done with chemo, no medical vaccine exemption for you. Once you have recovered from your organ or blood cell transplant, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 44 And if you are immunosuppressed but don’t have SCID, the rarest and most severe of all immunodeficiency disorders, in most cases no medical exemption for you. 45

No Medical Exemption for Immune and Brain Disorders, Genetic Susceptibility 

If you or your child are already suffering with autoimmune or brain disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, inflammatory bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy or an immunosuppressive disease like HIV, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55

If you or your child have a family history of severe allergies, vaccine reactions, seizures, sudden infant death syndrome or serious autoimmune and neurological disorders, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64

No Medical Exemption for Sickness, Many Previous Vaccine Reactions

If you or your child are sick at the time of vaccination with a fever or on antibiotics, no medical vaccine exemption for you.  65

No Medical Exemption for Pregnancy, Siblings of Vaccine Injured, Premature InfantsIf, after vaccination, you or your child ran a 105-degree fever, collapsed or had seizures and symptoms of brain inflammation followed by serious health deterioration and you are still chronically ill but a doctor disagrees that your continuing health problems were caused by vaccination, no medical vaccine exemption for you.  66 67

No Medical Exemption for Pregnancy, Siblings of Vaccine Injured, Premature Infants

If you are a pregnant health care worker and do not want to get a flu shot while you are pregnant because you do not want to risk a miscarriage, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 68 69

If your child was injured or died after vaccination and you want to protect your other children from vaccine injury, no medical vaccine exemption for your children. 70 71

If your baby was born prematurely and is low weight and struggling to survive, no medical vaccine exemption for your infant. 72 73 74

Obey Liability Free Doctors’ Vaccine Orders Or Be Punished

For all practical purposes, the Centers for Disease Control and medical trade organizations now direct pediatricians and other vaccinators to deny the medical vaccine exemption to 99.99 percent of Americans. Although nobody can predict whether the odds will be in your favor, you are expected to obey doctors’ orders and get and give your children every government recommended vaccine – no exceptions and no questions asked - or be subjected to threats, coercion, discrimination and denial of medical care, education, and employment. 75

Like drug companies selling vaccines, doctors giving vaccines are protected from vaccine injury lawsuits. If a doctor vaccinates you or your child against your will and you suffer a catastrophic vaccine reaction, you cannot seek justice in a civil court of law in front of a jury of your peers. 76 Without accountability or liability, there is strong incentive for vaccinators to implement government vaccine policy and deny vaccine harm - but little incentive to prevent vaccine harm.

Eliminating Non-Medical Exemptions to Blackmail Americans

Now public health and medical trade groups are pressuring legislators to pass laws that would not only eliminate non-medical religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions for children to attend school, 77 but also would require children to get every one of the 69 doses of 16 federally recommended vaccines - unless a parent can get a medical vaccine exemption from a doctor. 78 This vaccine dragnet, which is already being applied to health care workers, is also pulling in childcare workers and teachers as proposed new vaccine laws threaten them with loss of employment if they cannot find a doctor to write a medical vaccine exemption. 79 80 81 82

Zealously pursuing a 99.99 percent vaccination rate and using very small groups of immune compromised individuals as an excuse to eliminate all non-medical vaccine exemptions, liability free doctors want permission from lawmakers to blackmail virtually every American into playing vaccine roulette. And they want to do this in the absence of sound vaccine safety science, even for those potentially at higher risk for suffering vaccine harm.

Philosopher and human rights advocate Elie Wiesel has said “When you take an idea or a concept and turn it into an abstraction, that opens the way to take human beings and turn them, also, into abstractions. When human beings become abstractions, what is left?” 83

Cruel and Inhuman to Last Degree

Act Now to Protect Bodily Integrity and Free Exercise of ConscienceIn 1905, when the U.S. Supreme Court in Jacobson v. Massachusetts affirmed the right of states to mandate smallpox vaccination, the Court warned legislatures that it was not condoning vaccination of persons for whom the medical procedure would be “cruel and inhuman to the last degree,” adding that “all laws should receive a sensible construction.” 84

The inalienable right to autonomy and free exercise of conscience to protect bodily integrity trumps the right of government to use our bodies for any purpose, which is why informed consent to vaccine risk taking and flexible medical, religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions must remain a legal right in America. 85

Act Now to Protect Bodily Integrity and Free Exercise of Conscience

If you want the legal right to freely exercise conscience and protect your bodily integrity or that of your child when it comes to vaccine risk-taking, if you do not want to wake up one day and be forced to play vaccine roulette when you have good reason to conclude that you or your child are at high risk for suffering vaccine harm, you need to act now. You can be sure that the odds definitely will not be in your favor when it comes to finding a doctor to grant you a medical vaccine exemption.

Americans must wake up. If we allow this, we have no freedom in America any more. They know that vaccines will irreparably harm and even kill a certain percentage of kids, and they are okay with that. Are you? If you are, you should look at the statistics that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that deaths from illnesses had dropped by up to 99% BEFORE the vaccines came out. If they were actually the live savers they are made out to be, then maybe you'd have a case for saying the kids who die or are damaged are justified, (although I'd disagree), but since vaccines are NOT the life savers they say they are, there is not question about this! Yes, many more in 3rd world countries die of these relatively mild diseases, but they are also still die of diarrhea there. These people need clean water and better nutrition, NOT vaccines! Even the World Health Organization says that when given Vitamin A supplements, the deaths from measles in these countries goes down by 50%! If gave them adequate nutrition all around, they wouldn't die any more from these diseases, just like we don't here. And, remember, even if you still think mandatory vaccination is a good idea, once you give up such a basic freedom, you can be sure that they will take even more. Next time, the government may be forcing you to do something against YOUR will. Here's part of a quote from C. S. Lewis: "...those who torment us for our own good will, tomrent us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

We need to reevaluate our goals of the vaccine. To put patient care first and foremost, and bring back research to prevent the many side-effects. etc. thank you NVIC.

Hi, I just wanted to say that we are getting kicked out of our pediatrics office as of June 1,2015 if we don't agree to vaccinate our kids. The pediatric office offered no apologies to us parents who have chosen to not vaccinate. They feel we are a threat to their patients who are newborn, or have cancer. Unbelievable. But it also shows they are not up to date with the recent events of the whistle blowers coming forth and saying how vaccinations do not work. Stay strong parents and lets keep fighting and being the voice for our children. From my perspective, if my kids choose to take immunizations when they are older and on their own that is their choice. My husband and I agreed to not vaccinate our kids, and if we ever God forbid, lost a child to a incurable disease, we would still be at peace knowing we didn't inject them with cruel and harmful toxins on purpose. We made this decision after I researched more and more on vaccines and found how harmful they really are. We do have two children who are fully vaccinated, and two who are not. What a noticeable difference. The two that are vaccinated get sick more then the two who aren't. I just pray things don't head in the direction that Mike Adams from natural news says. God Bless,

We, parents, should have the right to choose what it is good or bad for our children. We have the right to refuse treatment, we should have the right to not vaccinate our children if we do not want. Vaccines are just drugs that can harm us. They are chemicals that the little bodies do not need them. I am doctor from Romania. I have just 3 vaccines and I am perfectly healthy. My boys 4 and 8 do not have any vaccines and they have a better immunity than other vaccinated kids. They are healthy and full of energy.

This is the very information I use to frame my religious objections as required by Indiana law. As a Christian, from a half Jewish family, whose grandfather was a WWII POW, how could I accept this Nazi-esque line of thinking? Shame on the policymakers who promote it.

This is an effort to force Americans to go against the constitution and bill of rights--it will lead to anarchy and people will leave this country just as people left Nazi Germany--this should all end up in the Supreme court and the constitution upheld---what happens to your rights with freedom of religion and freedom to make your own decisions

Mandatory vaccinations is more than threatening to our health. it is a very basic civil rights issue. The US government is taking a very basic right away from us in this legislation. The destruction to our youth is egregious and should not be tolerated. Jerry Fair

I think maybe it's time to stop opposing mandatory vaccination simply on the ground that it may cause harm to some individuals. It's time to take the offensive. The pro-vaccination crowd doesn't have an empirical leg to stand on. All the evidence -- historical, epidemiological, and clinical, as well as the latest biological findings concerning the human microbiome and its relation to the immune system -- show that not only has vaccination never protected anyone from any infectious disease, but also that it causes all sorts of disease by overwhelming the immune system and giving neutotoxins and microbes a free ride into the body's inner sanctum. Phusicians go to great lengths to prevent infection when operating on a patient but introduce infection when administering vaccines. It is a barbaric and insane practice that harms every one of its 'beneficiaries," even if that harm doesn't become evident for years to come. And how could it not? Why give cover to these vaccination-totalitarians by pretending there's a shred of truth to their position? Yes, they have lots of money and political clout as well as a brain-washed public supporting them, but the science is not on their side. Mass vaccination is slow-motion genocide. If this were a just world, they would be prosecuted for crimes against humanity. If this is a just universe, they will have to face themselves and what they've done in the end.

So the government wants to restrict the way I practice my religion— • What happened to the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Freedom of Religion, and the ESPECIALLY the separation of church and state? • How does this legislative body have the gall to try to enact a law that judges whether my religious beliefs are valid or not? • Who is going to validate my belief? With all due respect, my religious belief is between me and God, not me and some bureaucrat. I answer to God, not to the government. • The fact is: According to the U.S. Constitution, the government has no right to question my religious beliefs. The Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment guarantees me the right to worship as I choose and the government can't penalize me because of my religious beliefs. Question: How did this legislation even come about? Is it a coincidence that this legislation is happening right here and right now, with 30+ other states trying to enact similar legislation? It seems to me that this is a concerted scheme by the vaccine lobby. That's not a good enough reason to put my children at risk—and vaccines are not safe, nor very effective. In fact, if you or your child is injured or killed by a vaccine, you CANNOT sue the vaccine manufacturer. They have complete immunity from liability. So there is no incentive to produce a safe and effective vaccine. Parents need to learn about the vaccine business. It has nothing to do with the health of your children. It has everything to do with the health of drug company profits.

I lived in Colorado for 4 years, and my little one was born there. He is not vaccinated, and he is a really healthy boy compared to vaccinated children. Our pediatrician supported our desire to be not vaccinated. We moved to California, and I'm shocked! Some corrupted senators try to impose vaccination to children who are 100% healthy and safe for our society. Where is the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution that guarantees free speech, beliefs, etc.? Are all our senators or judges corrupted and don't see obvious things? America imposes democracy to another countries, but we, the US citizens, live like slaves and don't have rights which must be guaranteed our Constitution((( We must fight for our rights and rights of our children!

I strongly agree with all these comments. Because of all this awareness and whistleblowing the industry (probably with ALEC infusion) has gone completely offensive against the American people, against the constitution. Our country is being run by a mafia style banker/ big business enterprise. James Cook, how do we go on the offensive in response? Our attendance at the hearing seems to be ignored by media and these conglomerate interests.

When my 4 month old son had an adverse reaction to the 8 shots of vaccines "to keep up with the schedule" I called the pediatrician's office and was told by a nurse, that unless my child has severe seizures I should not bring him in. "Just take him to ER". I could not move my infant into a car seat, while he had rashes all over his legs, shaking hands and that scary non-responsive to any stimulus look on his face (like a mental illness expression) and fever. I was shocked at a change of attitude of the usually friendly nurses who just turned COLD and INHUMANE! Same with the neurologist who would not even listen to any vaccine-related offset of symptoms. It took the whole year, extensive physical therapy and lots of loving to get my child to overcome his poor fine motor skills! I will never believe any medical professional about the safety of vaccine for my child. I learned the hard way how they scared of their wits to even acknowledge the damage, much less to address the risks! BEWARE!!!! You will be on your own and no help from pediatricians! I was there myself!

How many of these toxins do they think we can inject into a little body and developing brain before it starts having a detrimental effect? They don't even KNOW what that might do because there hasn't been enough time to test giving so many in a short period of time. And who wants their child to be one of the guinea pigs to see if it's even safe?

I just moved to a new area. My daughter has worn hearing aids for the last 6 years and we're in the process of getting new ones. One of the requirements is a Dr. signed note that her ears are ok for hearing aids. We made a new appt. with Dr. He came to the vaccination part of the appt. I told him we wouldn't be getting those. He said he would give me 3 appts. to change my mind, but he wouldn't sign anything if I didn't vaccinate my daughter. We 'discussed' this for 30 min. No matter what facts I said dismissed them. Sometimes saying out right "that didn't happen, its anti-vacc propaganda". So my daughter can't get her new hearing aids yet. I'm not sacrificing her health on the alter of threats and supposed health security. We're going to fight!

My grand-daughter Phoebe nearly died from bleeding in the brain exactly 7 days after receiving Pentacel 5in1 plus 1 vaccine. The VIS for the DTaP vaccine clearly mentions the 7th day - not a coincidence for sure. Apparently they know something they are not sharing w. parents.If she would have received all the recommended vaccines that day she would have surely died. We trusted our pediatrician and were ignorant prior to this horrible day - and look what it got us! Phoebe never was vaccinated again and never will be. My family and I will leave this country, yes Dr. Richard, just like the Jews did prior to WWII, if it comes to mandatory vaccinations. My little Phoebe has also had seizures and should be exempt from vaccines according to the CDC and for that reason alone. The issue is that no doctor in this country is educated about vaccine injury and the most important question if subsequent vaccinations can/should be administered. This ignorance benefits the vaccine manufacturers tremendously and will be deadly for many children. I cannot consider this country the "Land of the Free" as long as pharmaceutical companies rule our lives and our children's lives, aiming to take away the most basic freedom namely to decide to be vaccinated or not. Presumably sane and intelligent people cannot understand the simplest of facts that mercury, aluminum and the many other toxic ingredients in vaccines injected into a newborn or even an older child can and will do serious harm. Truly, this must be a form of insanity. Maybe their brains are so full of mercury and aluminum deposits that they can no longer think clearly. Politicians are swayed by lobbyists with financial rewards - that needs to be completely stopped! No politician should make medical decisions for his/her state and the entire country. It is not the job of the Government to make medical decisions for any of us. This is so blatantly motivated by money. Nobody would care whether our children are vaccinated or not if there weren't billions of dollars attached. It is so very obvious. In essence, profits before babies! Is this the kind of country we want to live in? America has many great people, that's what makes it a great country. But this pharmaceutical terror that's being perpetuated is EVIL TO THE CORE. I currently pray daily that this vaccine terror will backfire and destroy this whole industry. Where have the days gone when doctors protected us? What happened to your oath - dearest doctor? Gone out the window after you got your check from Merch or from any of the other gangsters? My little Phoebe, the love of my life, is developmentally delayed, can't walk due to balance issues. She has sustained brain damage and may even had a stroke (we are not sure). She is healing with therapy, love and lots of organic food and juices, mercury free high grade fish oil and vitamins. Phoebe is very smart and we hope she will fully recover eventually. And the irony is this: the profit Sanofi Pasteur made from the vaccines Phoebe received are far exceeded by the amount of money this country had to spend to help Phoebe recover and heal. Maybe they made 300 dollars profit from the vaccines injected into her but it cost over 100,000 dollars to keep her alive and help her recover. Does this Government not get it? By protecting the vaccine manufacturers they create thousands of patients in this country who will need thousands and hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical care. This country is already severely burdened by these expenses and they will increase. How DUMB are these people? Really? I don't care about the money they have to spend, I just mentioned this to illustrate how dumb these politicians truly are and how much these expenses may effect all of us. It will also lead to rationing of medical care. I am just so very upset that millions of children are affected by this toxic cocktail. Intelligent children who could bring this country to true excellence are hindered by heavy metals and toxins in their brain. Parents need to take a very strong, decisive and stern stance. Parents, do not be intimidated by a doctor! Stand your ground and fight for your child's right to grow up healthy without vaccines! Immunity does not come from a needle!

I don't see too many 'healthy' and 'vibrant' kids out there these days. It seems that the more money that is thrown at (take your pick- education, medicine, politics/govt) the worse the results are. Sadly doctors these days are just churned out of med schools that are teaching out of date material as far as vaccine 'science' goes. Pharmaceutical companies seem to help fund these medical schools and journals. There is no independent thinking going on. That is strenuously discouraged in 'higher' education. As long as critical and independent thinking is discouraged by the medical-industrial complex and huge dollars are spent by the pharmaceutical lobbyists to ram these freedom depriving laws down our throats, there will be no changes.

Every adult should learn how to use natural products to care for their own illnesses and that of their children then they will have no need to go to a doctor. My family has been doing this for 15 years and several of the grandchildren have never been to see a doctor except to have their physical to go to school. Don't let a doctor kick you out of his office because you will not follow his advise.....FIRE YOU DOCTOR and learn how to take care of the health of your family naturally. If everyone did this, then the doctor's waiting rooms will become empty and they will lose money and then they will begin to follow your dictates!!! Doctors and hospitals should only be used for traumas NOT chronic illnesses. People need to educate themselves about illnesses and natural remedies.

I have 8 friends currently in medical school and when I discussed vaccine issues with them, they all vehemently discussed why vaccines are safe and necessary. Most haven't even started rotations and already seemed trained to force vaccinations especially the one from TN who is becoming a pediatrician. Interestingly and sadly enough, TN is the state with the highest baby mortality rate. The US should be prepared for a new wave of graduated medical students who are brainwashed by their medical schools to push for vaccines and belittle, intimidate, and bully parents into vaccinating their children. They don't care about your medical or religious exemptions. One of my friends studying in med school said that they are allowed to refuse treating a patient if they refuse vaccines. So they are already preparing them on how to handle it, but they are never taught how to deal with a vaccine injured child. If your child dies, they'll blame it on SIDS (which is made up). Then the autopsy report will hide the side effects from the vaccine, which is swollen or hard injection sites on the baby's skin and blood from the ears and mouth at the time of death. When your child dies from a vaccine that the doctor or nurse administered, they are not held responsible and cannot be sued EVER. You are giving up your rights, when you give in to their bullying and they get paid handsomely for each vaccine that is given while your child suffers. "In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.” Up until now 3.1 billion dollars has been paid out to families for vaccine injury and deaths by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) with our tax money."

Regarding SIDS: My infant son, born with Down syndrome, came down with a rare and dangerous disease: Infant botulism. Luckily, he had been receiving only expressed mother's milk (mine), and so the onset was insidious, but treatable (he gradually stopped swallowing and pooping over a period of days until he was basically paralyzed). It was scary, confused the doctors (Infant botulism is very rare), and took months for recovery. During my research, I learned that infants who are fed formula rather than mother's milk can have a very acute onset of the disease, and it is suspected that some SIDS deaths are actually botulism deaths. To find out more, contact Infant Botulism Research Statewide Study Center (California), 510 231 7605. Our son was unvaccinated, and since the botulism occurred around six months of age (adjusted), I shudder at the thought that he could have been given vaccines when we were unaware that he was sick with a fatal disease. My advice is, do whatever you must to give your infant mother's milk (I pumped for eleven months, until he could latch on; this involved lots and lots of work) and if you must vaccinate, wait until the child is old enough to tell you how he or she feels. When a child is sick, and cannot communicate, it is difficult; but when he is injured from a vaccine, and cannot communicate, it is worse.

About SIDS, Anon is correct, the baby who dies of SIDS (they should call it Sudden Inoculation Death Syndrome)does have hemorrhaging from the mouth. I wonder if there is a connection between that (I'm being rhetorical here) and the 'shaken baby syndrome' that is often blamed on abuse, but where there are no other external signs of physical abuse (no bruising around the eyes), just bleeding from the brain). I wonder if it's the vaccines that are causing all these deaths and they are never blaming the vaccines. What about the Amish? I wonder what their rates of SIDS is.... Of course the doctors never mention the Amish. That might start some dangerous thinking.

whoa now my daughter had a fever over 105 reaction and the CDC recommends that a vaccine not be given again if you have a life threatening reaction. i also have medical literature stating a fever over 105 is life threatening. Editors note: So sorry to learn of your daughters reaction. Did your doctor document this adverse reaction, report it to VAERS and give you a medical exemption for future vaccinations?

I have searched many times for a concise definition of what would qualify for a medical vaccine exemption. I was harmed by MMR in infancy (resulting in eczema). Then worked overseas for the US govt. and given the routine round of vaccines for overseas work. My health and immune system were/are never the same. Then while having repeated gut, parasitic infections while abroad, one Belgium Doc suggested I get an MMR booster. Within 20 minutes I developed tremors and battled immune compromised effects for the next 10 years, including extreme eczema. Fortunately I have always had good primary care physicians for my two children. We planned to delay vaccines til age two. Just as my oldest child turned 2, he bumped his head hard on the ice rink and he developed absence seizures. We never vaccinated him eventhough his docs gently recommended at least a few of the vaccines. Finally when he entered Kindergarten, his PCP, an Osteopathic Doc had a good conversation with me and once she learned of my previous history of harm from MMR and my son's seizure condition she made the very intelligent and sound decision to write him a medical exemption, which we review and rediscuss annually. The DO Doc also wrote an exemption for my daughter, "based on family history". Now 2 years since our wise Doctor's decision. I read the article pasted below on Huffington Post. The new Surgeon General's response to concerns about the MMR vaccine in the wake of the California Measles outbreak. I was genuinely impressed with the SG's relatively progressive stance. I was MOST impressed with his wise list of those who should be medically exempt from vaccines. I pasted that list below. After reading that, I told my PCP and she was very pleased and relieved to read this too. Relieved because as she told me she is under tremendous pressure from the Dept. of Health to increase their vaccine rates overall. My son's rather arrogant neurologist who told us to "not be Flakes and vaccinate our epileptic son" also paused and asked for confirmation about the Surgeon General's recent comments regarding MMR exemptions. THis may be VERY helpful to many who are seeking medical exemptions. Read the full article but I have cut and copied the part of his list of conditions qualifying for exemption. ------------- http://www.huffingtonpost.com/vivek-h-murthy-md-mba/top-line-questions-from-moms-about-mmr_b_6776020.html How would a parent know if they need to ask about their child getting a medical exemption? I encourage all parents to talk to their doctor or health care provider about vaccinating their children for measles. There are cases in which some children should delay or should not get the MMR or MMRV (Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Varicella) vaccines and your doctor will be able to help guide you. You should talk to your child's doctor if your child: Has ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction to the antibiotic neomycin, or any other component of MMR vaccine Has had a life-threatening allergic reaction to a previous dose of MMR or MMRV vaccine. Has HIV/AIDS, or another disease that affects the immune system, or has a parent, brother or sister with a history of immune system problems Is being treated with drugs that affect the immune system, such as steroids Has cancer or is being treated for cancer with radiation or drugs Has ever had a low platelet count, or another blood disorder, or has recently had a transfusion or received other blood products Has a history of seizures, or has a parent, brother or sister with a history of seizures Has received another vaccine within the past four weeks The bottom line: Talk to your child's health care provider if you have any questions or concerns about vaccinations for your child.

Live in Colorado. Just refused vaccines again for our 2 and 4 year olds. Luckily, the local clinic was not forcing the issue on us, but they do pressure parents heavily. When I asked to see the actual insert, they did not have it and referred me to cdc general web site. When I asked about the exact amount of aluminium in the mix, they had no answers. When I asked if they knew of NVIC, they had not heard of this. When I asked what vaccines were really necessary for diseases actually present in this locale, vs what was not necessary, they had no bearing, nor information. So personally; I would like the persons administering vaccines to know more about them than just the fact the hospital recommends them. They had great talking points about; we deal with the sick kids daily, and would like to see them having been vaccinated instead. But that's just a trained talking point. When I asked which diseases exactly they come across which I could vaccinate against, the only thing they had was measles and mumps. I'll take a bout of measles against heavy metal blood toxicity, any day of the week. / PRODUCT REQUEST FROM NVIC; Handout that is designed specifically to give to the hospital staff. Detailed scientific information in a nutshell, without all the fear factor and ideological messages which are promoted to the concerned parents and freedom of choice crowd. I need something scientific to hand them, charts, dangers, statistics, proof of adjuvents containing aluminium. Stats on lifelong differences in health vaccinated vs not. I would have educated the staff better, if NVIC would have had an available 'for the doctor and nurses' 1 or 2 page handout. Please, the only counter to disinformation is truthful information. Please create and post for public distribution immediately. Although I have become well educated on vaccines over the past few years, I found the medical professionals were absolutely clueless and had been effectively insulated from the counter arguments. They need exposure, and that requires handouts and materials. That's how big pharma fools them, and that's how we can properly re educate them.

The information that follows is meant to help clarify the details concerning the many ‘Center for Disease Control’ vaccines. Realize that in 1980, only nine vaccine doses were recommended by age six. By 2015, the expectation became fifty plus. Unbelievably, twenty are administered in just the first year! Most shocking is that prior to the 1980s, only fetal animal cell lines were used in vaccine formulations. Beyond then, HUMAN cells (from healthy aborted fetuses) have been utilized. At least eighty different aborted babies were involved in developing the rubella portion of the MMR. The final approved product contained cells cultured from two of them, cold-heartedly labeled MCR-5 and WI-38. The first cell line was derived from the lung tissue of a 14-week-old healthy male in Britain. The second, a 16-week-old female (20 cm long) who was aborted in Sweden because the parents felt they had too many children. The baby was packed on ice and sent to the U.S. (speculation suggests without consent – which was common) where it was dissected. The use of WI-38 cells is still a terribly lucrative, moneymaking business. Sadly, now there are other such recycled fetuses coarsely named WI-1, WI-44, HEK293, IMR-90, IMR-91 - and countless additional ones. God Almighty grieves! Following is a list of some of the other little known ingredients in vaccines (The full one can be found on the CDC website). Understand that unlike oral medications, these injected vaccine substances are not filtered by the liver, but directly enter the bloodstream and even the brain. Notice as well that many of the doses contain common childhood allergens such as casein, corn, soy, egg, and red colorant. Additionally, though ‘deemed’ very safe and not required to be listed, peanut oil became widely used as an adjuvant by 1980. Although virtually unheard of prior, 1.5 million children now suffer from allergies to this legume – hundreds have even perished. Partial Ingredient List: thimerasol (50% mercury), aluminum, E.coli bacteria, Clostridiium bacteria, antibiotics, monkey kidney cells, cow fetus and serum, insect cells, canine (dog) kidney protein, porcine (pig) gelatin, chick embryo cells, guinea pig cells, monosodium glutamate, ammonium sulfate, formaldehyde, alcohol, detergent, red colorant, hydrocortisone, casein (cow milk), yeast, dextrose (corn), egg proteins, and soy peptones In conclusion, it is disturbing enough to learn about the excessive number of vaccine doses – further still of the many toxic ingredients in them; then far worse yet to be devastated upon becoming informed that many vaccines have been developed from aborted baby cells. The unimpeded abortion industry in itself has been an unparalleled holocaust – as all others from world history pale in comparison. Christians, above all, must arise and commit to pray (and vote) for this abomination to cease. We should also purpose to educate families – so that in the very near future a great majority will refuse injections of these damaging toxins and murderous remnants of the most precious and innocent of all human life!

I just want to thank each and every one of you for the posts as I'm educating myself and researching vaccines and safety since I'm currently being pressured by my sons nursery school to vaccinate or he gets kicked out of the program. I find it truly disgusting and appalling that parents no longer have the right to decide what's best for our children. Depressing and lonely when every other parent seems brainwashed into thinking these vaccines are the only way to go. I'm ok if one parent decides to vaccinate your child but don't think you can bully me into doing the same. Trying to figure out if any of the vaccines are necessary and which to definitely avoid. Any advice appreciated! EDITORS NOTE: Anna, here is the NVIC research page for Diseases/Vaccines. Just click on the vaccine you are researching for referenced commentary and links to CDC, FDA and the manufacturer package insert for safety/adverse event data. http://www.nvic.org/Vaccines-and-Diseases.aspx

College dtr, age 22, fully vaccinated when in military (partially vaccinated previously when traveling on missions trip). Now in college, college demanding MMR or positive titers. First titer neg, so injected MMR. Next titer still negative after 6 weeks. Now, cannot adjust any college schedule, register or cancel classes, without taking ANOTHER MMR dose! RIDICULOUS!
