The Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention and the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration preserve a database of details about opposed results from the administration of vaccines licensed within the U.S. The database known as the Vaccine Antagonistic Occasion Reporting System (VAERS),1 a federally operated program created underneath the Nationwide Childhood Vaccine Damage Act of 1986.

One examine revealed within the journal Neurology evaluated information from VAERS to take a look at the speed of incidence of meningitis after vaccines had been administered to people from infancy to 74.7 years. Stories had been pulled from 1990 to 2010 trying on the onset of meningitis inside six weeks after a person was vaccinated.

They discovered 722 circumstances. Of those, 415 (57.5%) occurred within the first six weeks and 327 (45.2%) occurred inside the first two weeks. Within the group, 76% of the people had been hospitalized and 6.9% had been disabled after the an infection cleared. Meningitis was reported after a number of sorts of vaccinations. These included:

Vaccine Quantity With Meningitis
Hemophilus influenza B 314 circumstances (42%)
Hepatitis B 115 (15.9%)
Oral polio 114 (15%)
Diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis 104 (14.4%)
Diphtheria, tetanus toxoids, and acellular Pertussis 89 (12.3%)
Heptavalent pneumococcal protein conjugate (PNC) 88 (12.1%)
Measles, mumps and rubella 84 (11.6%)
Inactivated poliovirus 67 (9.2%)

The crew of researchers concluded: “The unbalanced distribution of stories of meningitis within the first six weeks after vaccination is suggestive of the chance that some circumstances could also be triggered by vaccination.”2

But meningitis just isn’t the one opposed impact related to vaccinations. Utilizing the identical database, one other crew discovered 54 stories of people who reportedly contracted Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) after vaccinations in 2004. Of those, 38 occurred inside the first six weeks.

The very best variety of people with signs of GBS occurred in those that obtained influenza vaccine adopted by a hepatitis vaccine.3 Though the vaccine trade and lots of public well being organizations insist that vaccines are universally secure and efficient, a lot of the information from VAERS and case stories inform a distinctly totally different story. Most individuals aren’t conscious of and by no means see the information from VAERS. You possibly can search the VAERS database here.

Six Out of 10 Non-Reside Vaccines Elevated Mortality

One crew of researchers studied the nonspecific occasions of vaccines over the previous 40 years. They found that some vaccines are defending people from illnesses aside from what they had been vaccinated in opposition to.4

Different vaccines had been additionally related to a better degree of mortality from illnesses unrelated to the vaccination, such because the checklist of vaccines above which might be related to meningitis.

Dr. Christine Stabell Benn was a researcher on this examine. She spoke with a reporter from Science Information in regards to the frustration researchers expertise once they uncover individuals against vaccines are justified of their issues and aren’t heard. She stated:5

“What do researchers do once they uncover that vaccination opponents are justified in worrying? No vaccines have been studied for his or her non-specific results on general well being, and earlier than we’ve got examined these, we can’t really decide that the vaccines are secure. As well as, our analysis exhibits that some vaccines really improve general mortality, particularly amongst ladies, and that is very worrying.”

The analysis into nonspecific occasions started in 1979 when a colleague of Benn’s found kids vaccinated with a reside attenuated virus for measles had a mortality price 70% decrease than those that didn’t get the vaccination. The researchers discovered this was as much as a 20% decrease mortality price than may very well be defined by the measles vaccine.6

Nevertheless, different vaccinations demonstrated elevated mortality in kids, together with the diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine. Additional evaluation confirmed vaccination with live vaccines, together with BCG (Bacille Calmette-Guérin for tuberculosis illness), oral polio and smallpox, appeared to enhance the immune response to a wide range of infectious illnesses and thus lowered general mortality.

In contrast, the researchers discovered non-live vaccines, together with the pentavalent vaccine, H1N1 influenza, DTP and hepatitis B vaccines, elevated general mortality, with a better price amongst ladies.

What Is Meningitis?

Meningitis is the medical time period to explain swelling of the membranes that cowl the mind and spinal twine.7 The irritation can occur from a bacterial, viral or fungal an infection. It could actually additionally occur from sure medicine, most cancers and accidents. How it’s handled will rely upon the trigger.

You will need to get medical consideration rapidly since bacterial meningitis will be lethal inside just some hours. Everlasting harm also can happen, together with listening to loss, studying disabilities and different mind harm.8

Though viral meningitis is the commonest kind recognized and is much less extreme, the signs are practically an identical to bacterial meningitis. They embody headache, stiff neck, nausea and vomiting, confusion and sensitivity to gentle.9

The Variety of Advisable Vaccines Continues to Improve

Though some individuals start telling the historical past of vaccinations with Edward Jenner, who developed the primary vaccine in opposition to smallpox in 1796, others argue it was inoculations first created by the Chinese language within the 12 months 1000 that mark the delivery of the primary “vaccine.” Smallpox inoculations had been additionally widespread in Africa and Turkey, lengthy earlier than the observe unfold to North America.10

Massive-scale mass vaccination applications with smallpox vaccine had been instituted within the U.S. within the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, however didn’t embody different vaccines till the late Nineteen Forties, when really useful vaccines for kids included not solely smallpox but additionally diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis.11

The primary polio vaccine — the inactivated Salk vaccine (IPV) — got here on the scene in 1955 and was changed by the reside attenuated oral polio vaccine (OPV) in 1962. Reside attenuated measles, mumps and rubella vaccines had been added within the late Sixties (the mix MMR vaccine was licensed in 1971). Hemophilus influenza kind B was added to the childhood vaccination schedule in1988, adopted by hepatitis B vaccine in 1991.

The variety of vaccines given to kids and younger adults continued to mount and, by 2020, the really useful schedule for kids was 69 doses of 16 vaccines by age 18, together with an annual flu shot. Though vaccines had been traditionally given solely to kids, the pharmaceutical trade has expanded its market to incorporate vaccines for individuals throughout all age teams.

The federal government recommends that adults get a tetanus booster each 10 years, the latest model of which incorporates safety in opposition to pertussis and diphtheria (Tdap vaccine). Docs additionally advocate that adults obtain influenza, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, pneumococcal and meningococcal vaccinations. The primary shingles vaccine for adults got here out in 2006 and a second vaccine was launched in 2017 that provokes a stronger inflammatory immune response.

As a brand new kind of vaccine for COVID-19 looms on the horizon, extra persons are questioning the effectiveness and security of a vaccine protocol that injects international substances into your physique to hyperstimulate inflammatory responses within the hope your immune system will develop synthetic immunity.

Massive Pharma Is Shielded From Legal responsibility

Though there’s a database to document vaccine harm, the pharmaceutical firms take pleasure in safety from legal responsibility within the U.S. In November 1986, the Nationwide Childhood Vaccine Damage Act grew to become legislation to offer vaccine producers partial legal responsibility safety from vaccine harm lawsuits.12

The Act additionally established a federally operated Vaccine Damage Compensation Program (VICP) different to a lawsuit for accidents attributable to vaccines which might be really useful for kids by the CDC.

In line with Authorized Discuss Community, the aim for the 1986 Act was to induce vaccine makers, cautious of expensive vaccine harm lawsuits, to remain within the vaccine manufacturing enterprise to create and market vaccines with out worry of being sued.13

When the Act was handed by Congress in 1986, it didn’t give legal responsibility safety to medical doctors or different vaccine directors from medical malpractice lawsuits. Nevertheless, Congress quietly handed an modification in 1987 that supplied a legal responsibility defend for medical doctors.14

Then, over the following 30 years, Congress added extra weakening amendments and the U.S. Division of Well being and Human Providers additionally weakened the protection and compensation provisions within the legislation by rule making authority.

In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Courtroom declared FDA-licensed vaccines to be “unavoidably unsafe” and eliminated all remaining legal responsibility from vaccine producers — even when there was proof the corporate may have made a vaccine safer.15

Sadly, the underside line immediately is that should you obtain an FDA-licensed and CDC-recommended vaccine for kids or pregnant girls that causes harm or kills you or your little one, the vaccine producer and well being care practitioner are protected against being sued in civil courtroom.

As I’ve written earlier than, the National Vaccine Information Center has reported that the unique legislation handed by Congress in 1986 didn’t legally defend people administering vaccines from medical malpractice lawsuits and solely gave vaccine producers partial legal responsibility safety, which preserved the authorized recourse for fogeys of vaccine injured kids to sue firms for design defect (failure to make a vaccine safer).

Nevertheless, over time, the legislation’s provisions had been considerably eroded by Congress and federal companies till the specter of vaccine harm lawsuits successfully was solely eliminated.

Robert Kennedy Jr., founder and chairman of the board of administrators of Kids’s Well being Protection, talked about this travesty in a brief video. Whereas the remaining minutes of the video aren’t particularly about vaccine harm, it’s nicely value watching. Kennedy stated:16

“There is not any motive to make [vaccines] secure as a result of no person can sue [them] … there isn’t any consequence of supplying you with a extremely harmful vaccine … it is a gold mine. If you may get a vaccine on the CDC schedule, it is value a billion {dollars} a 12 months sometimes to your organization.”

VAERS Screens Developments With out Repercussions

Which means that VAERS can monitor developments within the voluntary reporting of vaccine accidents and deaths however neutralizes any authorized repercussions for everlasting harm or loss of life on account of a authorities really useful vaccine.

Remember, many of the CDC-recommended vaccines are mandated by states for kids to attend college, whereas extra vaccines are being thought-about for grownup mandates (reminiscent of proposals to legally require all kids and adults to obtain the COVID-19 vaccines being fast-tracked to licensure).As I’ve mentioned, with the specter of vaccine harm lawsuits eliminated, extra pharmaceutical firms have entered the profitable vaccine enterprise.

For the previous three a long time, the worldwide vaccine trade has been busy creating lots of of recent experimental vaccines, pushing for a few of them to be fast-tracked, even earlier than the current push for a COVID-19 vaccine. As Kennedy mentions, one vaccine on the CDC schedule could also be value $1 billion annually or extra to the corporate. Kennedy continues:17

“You can not sue them for redress. There is not any discovery; there isn’t any depositions; there isn’t any medical malpractice; there isn’t any class actions.”

In preparation for a possible emergency following additional threats of bioterrorism after 9/11, the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act was handed in 2005.18 This act additionally shields vaccine makers from lawsuits for accidents attributable to vaccines that had been created and used throughout a declared public well being emergency. The COVID-19 pandemic falls into this class.

Specialists admit that “fast-tracking” an experimental vaccine like COVID-19 at “warp-speed” has by no means been finished and can current a public well being security downside. This can be larger than the accidents and loss of life skilled with previous vaccines since it’s “mainly a type of gene remedy.”19 In a Harvard Enterprise Faculty interview, Ken Frazier, chairman and CEO of Merck & Co., stated:20

“I feel when individuals inform the general public that there is going to be a vaccine by the tip of 2020, they do a grave disservice to the general public … initially, it takes a whole lot of time. I feel the document for the quickest vaccine ever delivered to market was Merck within the mumps vaccine. It took about 4 years. Our most up-to-date vaccine for Ebola took 5 and a half years …”

What Are Your Choices?

As historical past has proven, it’s vital that everybody will get concerned now and stands up for the authorized proper to make voluntary vaccine selections. Though you at present should not have any authorized recourse after a vaccine harm, you will need to report your or your kid’s vaccine response expertise to VAERS.

Mounting proof of accidents and deaths might sometime immediate a response to guard public well being. Stories will be made on-line and directions will be discovered on the Vaccine Antagonistic Occasion Reporting System web site.21

Whereas nationwide coverage suggestions are made on the federal degree, vaccine legal guidelines are made on the state degree. You possibly can assume globally however act domestically in your state, the place you may take motion to guard your proper to make vaccine selections.

At present, these selections are being threatened by lobbyists representing drug firms, medical commerce associations and public well being officers, who’re making an attempt to steer legislators to strip you of all vaccine exemptions.
