Why the fuss about Vaccines?

Many health providers, scientists, and parents are concerned about the growing vaccine schedule recommended by the CDC. One of the reasons is that the number of additive chemicals contained in vaccines often include one or more of the following: formaldehyde, aluminum, and ethyl mercury. Many individuals with faith-based affiliations take issue with the use of aborted human and animal (pig) fetal tissue that were used in the creation and production of vaccines.

As the number of required vaccines for individuals have grown exponentially, and individuals (especially infants and children) are receiving multiple vaccines in one visit at much younger ages than previously given, there is concern that a cumulative effect may be the reason many more health problems; these include more prevalent childhood cancers, low immunity, and neurodevelopmental issues.

Along with this concern is that to date, there are no published clinical trials on the safety of multiple vaccines and their impact upon human health in different age categories.

What are some of the chemicals commonly used in the production of vaccines? They include suspending fluid (sterile water, saline, or fluids containing protein); preservatives and stabilizers (albumin, phenols, and glycine); and adjuvants or enhancers that help improve the vaccine's effectiveness. Vaccines also may contain very small amounts of the culture material used to grow the virus or bacteria used in the vaccine, such as chicken egg protein.

Ask “8” Questions before Immunizing yourself or your child
  1. Am I or my child sick right now?
  2. Have I or my child had a bad reaction to a vaccination before?
  3. Do I or my child have a personal or family history of vaccine reactions, neurological disorders, severe allergies or immune system problems?
  4. Do I know the disease and vaccine risks for myself or my child?
  5. Do I have full information about the vaccine’s side effects?
  6. Do I know how to identify and report a vaccine reaction?
  7. Do I know I need to keep a written record, including the vaccine manufacturer’s name and lot number, for all vaccinations?
  8. Do I know I have the right to make an informed choice?

If you answered yes to questions 1, 2, and 3, or no to questions 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 and do not understand the significance of your answer, you may want to review information on NVIC's website with links to other websites and resources so you can better answer these questions designed to educate consumers about the importance of making fully informed vaccine decisions.  

To report a health problem that followed vaccination you or your provider should call the
Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) at 1-800-822-7967.

Disclaimer / Investigate: The intent of this content is to raise awareness about the controversial aspects of vaccination. Many vaccines contain Aluminum, Formaldehyde, or Ethyl Mercury. When  aluminum and formaldehyde are combined, the synergistic effects increase 10,000-fold. Individuals who suffer from chronic exposure can have a unique expression of symptoms.

This presentation is not to be construed as medical or legal advice: but to help stimulate investigation and conversation about possible safety risks related to vaccine ingredients and personal health history. These may not pose a medical risk for you or your child but do in some  individual cases.
