Some Important Things You Need to Know About Vaccines

  1. In 1983, there was 23 doses of 7 different vaccines recommended by age six at a cost of just eighty dollars per child. Now here in 2018, there are 69 doses of 16 different vaccines by the age of 18 at a cost of $2,800 per child.
  2. Now there are hundreds of vaccines that are also in the research pipeline that are likely to come out sometime soon and also be required as part of this.
  3. Under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, nearly $3.4 Billion in federal vaccine injury compensation has been paid to victims from vaccine injuries. The crazy part is is that the pharmaceutical companies that produced the vaccines are not liable for any adverse effects.
  4. Only two to three percent of adverse effects are even reported, so it is likely there are over 10 times more adverse reactions and effects affecting your health and your child’s health than are even reported. So this number paid out for vaccine injuries should be much higher.
  5. It is estimated that only one in 10 percent of those affected are shown in vaccine research. But it doesn’t mesh with what we’re seeing:
    • As many as one in 38 boys getting autism or somewhere on the autism disorder.
    • One in 12 kids having some type of neural developmental problem.
    • One in 9 having some type of allergy or asthma or other major health issue.

A lot of these conditions are linked back to vaccines.

The Most Important Questions to Ask Before You Vaccinate Your Child

  1. Am I or is my child sick right now?
  2. Have I or my child had a bad reaction to a vaccine before?
  3. Do I or my child have a personal or family history of vaccine reactions like neurological disorders, severe allergies or immune system problems?
  4. Do I know the disease and vaccine risks for myself and my child for each one of those vaccines that they ‘should be’ getting?
  5. Do I have the full information about the vaccines, side effects and potential adverse reactions?
  6. Do I know how to identify and report these adverse reactions?
  7. Do I know I need to keep a written record including the manufacturer’s name,  lot number for all vaccines?
  8. Do I know I have the right to make an informed choice?

These are questions you want to ask yourself when it’s time for you and your family to get your next round of vaccines.
