Pediatrician Dr. Bob Sears Discusses Vaccine Dose Safety on Fox & Friends

The vaccine book You can send an email to Fox to share your story at friends@foxnews.com.

Dr. Bob Sears was on Fox & Friends today talking about the safety of the combined pediatric vaccine schedule and more.

Tomorrow the American Academy of Pediatrics, the "Union" so to speak for pediatricians features Dr. Paul Offit who will talk about your right to make medical decisions for your child and to choose a vaccine exemption (see the verbiage from the event below.) Vaccine exemptions interfere with commerce - is there anything in America that is not predicated on the almighty dollar? Do you think your child's health is really exempt from corporate greed?

The question of whether it is the constitutional right of Americans to exempt themselves from vaccines has been tried before the US Supreme Court twice— both times the court has affirmed the state’s right to compel vaccination. Despite these rulings, 48 statesnow have religious exemptions and 21 states have philosophical exemptions to vaccination. How these exemptions came to exist, and their impact on the health of American children, will be discussed. Faculty: Paul Offit, MD, FAAP

The AAP wants you to shut up and roll up your children's sleeves.

Interesting that he admits that vaccination is a very unnatural way of introducing germs... So why does he still vaccinate?

Julie Leonardo

I am so glad that Bob brought up the unnaturalness of injecting directly into the bloodstream. I had read about this issue from a mother on a mom's forum a couple of years ago, but nobody ever brought this up on a lot of the sites I've been on. It's true. We are essentially "sneak attacking" the immune system by direct injection. This alone makes me wary of vaccines as they are made now, let alone all of the dangerous ingredients. We are messing with nature's intentions for foreign entity exposure and we are suffering the consequences.

Matt,

Vaccines for

DTaP; Pedvax HIB; Prevnar; Polio; MMR;


That would be 9 total.

Diptheria
Tetanus
Pertussis
Haemophilus b conjugate (HiB)
pneumococcal bacteria: 7 or 13 strains depending on which generation of Prevnar
Polio
Measles
Mumps
Rubella

note: Some news outlets and folks seem aghast that Hannah P received vaccines for 9 different disease in ONE DAY. When in actuality, the current CDC schedule recommends a 9-disease day for every 6 month old

cmo

Matt;

...Could the following vaccines administered simutaniously, to a 15 mo. child, who had an ear infection and was on antibiotics at the time result in Autism or brain damage of any sort? Also, could you please confirm the number of actual vaccines the following total up to?

DTaP; Pedvax HIB; Prevnar; Polio; MMR;


I think most would answer YES to the above.

More applause for Alisyn Camerota, Fox, and of course Dr. Sears!!

Attacking vaccine exemptions? When more parents are utilizing them than ever? Try it, you bastards.
As Bob Dylan said, you don't have to be a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

polliwog

Paul Offit should be viewed as a salesman. Where is the media campaign to show this?
Obviously he is a spokesman, thus whenever he speaks there should be a script below him stating who finances him.

Oops! Typo alert: "...whether to give the vaccines separately or [in combination]..."
Sorry.

patrons99

While we quibble over whether to give vaccines separately or individually, both of which I believe are misguided strategies, let's not loose sight of the bigger question - whether vaccines should be given at all.

Here's a recent article titled "Death by Vaccination: The Gates Foundation and the New Eugenics" by Richard Gale on September 22, 2010.

Dear Dr. Sears;Dr.(?)Skinner; or any other Medical Expert reading this post,

Could the following vaccines administered simutaniously, to a 15 mo. child, who had an ear infection and was on antibiotics at the time result in Autism or brain damage of any sort? Also, could you please confirm the number of actual vaccines the following total up to?

DTaP; Pedvax HIB; Prevnar; Polio; MMR;

Erik Leon

Alisyn's advice at the end that parents can have the shots separated is of no use to those who cannot find a pediatrician that is willing to follow an alternative vaccine schedule. This is quite difficult, with the AAP endorsing the extreme policy of All Star Pediatrics, which from my memory reads something like this:

"If you do not vaccinate according to the CDC schedule, we will ask you to find another physician that supports your views. We do not keep a list of physicians that would accommodate your request, nor would we ever recommend such a physician. Thank you for reading this policy. Have a nice day!"

mom

I did email FOX to thank them. And that is a channel that is not normally watched in our home.
I am NOT HAPPY to see that Offit is now going to start a war on exemptions.. I hate that man.
I had to go look up what your article alluded to - here is the talk Offit is giving at the AAP conference this weekend F2101 Vaccine Exemptions: Their Origin
and Impact
The question of whether it is the constitutional right
of Americans to exempt themselves from vaccines
has been tried before the US Supreme Court twice—
both times the court has affirmed the state’s right to
compel vaccination. Despite these rulings, 48 states
now have religious exemptions and 21 states have
philosophical exemptions to vaccination. How these
exemptions came to exist, and their impact on the
health of American children, will be discussed.

Given the amount of money involved in the vaccine industry, Thorsen is probably sleeping with the fishes. No telling who/where the $2m is now.

Dear AoA Friends, Here is a direct transcription from a Feb. 20, 2002 press release from the National Academy of Sciences on the topic of child immunizations.

"The immunization schedule in this country has grown complex over the last 20 years. In 1980, infants were vaccinated against four diseases -- diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and polio. Today, most healthy infants get up to 15 shots of five vaccines by the time they are six months old, and up to 5 additional shots of seven more vaccines by age two. These immunizations protect against 11 diseases in total -- diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b (commonly referred to as Hib disease), varicella, and pneumococcus."

Dr. Bob Sears is SO WRONG about so much. In effect he seems to me to be a covert agent on the side of the Vaccine Industry.

Also, Dr. Sears ignores the injection of all these toxins beginning at day of birth with HepB, then EIGHT doses (not six or seven) at 2 months, etc.

I might add my very healthy generation (born in the 1940's) received no vaccine injections until age 4 or 5, and then only a couple individual shots for tetanus and diphtheria. All of us kids got and suffered very little with all the childhood diseases, resulting in permanent immunity, instead of today's $billion dollar series of boosters with their limited-time immunities, if they are "successful" at all.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Infant Immunizations Not Shown to Be Harmful to Children's Immune Systems

WASHINGTON -- The current immunization schedule calling for infants to get up to 20 vaccinations by the age of two does not increase the risk of contracting Type 1 diabetes or various infections, such as pneumonia and meningitis, says a new report from the National Academies' Institute of Medicine. The evidence is inconclusive as to whether the immunization schedule increases the risk of asthma. The committee that wrote the report said there is no need for a federal review of the schedule for infant immunizations at this time.

The increase in vaccine number and doses given to infants in recent years has led to concerns among some parents about possible adverse effects from immunizing infants so heavily. One concern is related to the higher incidence of diseases associated with immune system dysfunction, such as asthma and Type 1 diabetes -- an insulin-dependent form of the disease, previously referred to as juvenile diabetes. Although genetic factors are known to affect the risk of developing these diseases, the increase in their incidence seems more likely to be the result of environmental factors. Immunization has been proposed as one possible adverse environmental modifier of immune function.

"Like any drug, no vaccine is 100 percent safe, but this report should at least assure parents that getting so many immunizations during infancy is not causing diabetes or increasing the risk of certain serious infections," said committee chair Marie McCormick, professor and chair, department of maternal and child health, Harvard School of Public Health, Boston.

The immunization schedule in this country has grown complex over the last 20 years. In 1980, infants were vaccinated against four diseases -- diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and polio. Today, most healthy infants get up to 15 shots of five vaccines by the time they are six months old, and up to 5 additional shots of seven more vaccines by age two. These immunizations protect against 11 diseases in total -- diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b (commonly referred to as Hib disease), varicella, and pneumococcus."

You know, while I can appreciate Dr. Sears for standing up (and Lord knows if they haven't already started the Wakefield style witch hunt, it's in the works), I still take issue with him saying there are vaccines that are "safe" if given "one or two at a time". My other issue is that the flu vaccine can give those without a knowledge that they have an egg allergy an immediate reaction. How are you going to know that a 6 month old has an allergy to eggs when most parents don't fed their childre eggs until age 1? I was told by my mother, no eggs or peanut butter, shell fish, etc., until one year. Again, I'm growing tiresome of Dr Sears riding the fence. In his world, it's ok to give "one or two at a time" but in my world...that doesn't hold true.

Casey - "WOW! I have an issue with anyone saying the flu vaccine alone is safe... but hey this is a step in the right direction."

Well said! I completely agree. Even administered separately, vaccines are ALL dangerous. It only takes one to put you down, sometimes permanently.

http://www.ageofautism.com/2010/02/journal-of-child-neurology-reports-16-year-old-girl-blinded-by-merck-gardasil-vacination.html

There is a growing body of evidence that the vaccine schedules actually make us more susceptible to diseases, i.e., they act as portals or gateways of vaccine-induced susceptibility to diseases, in both the vaccinated and unvaccinated.

Administered serially over a lifetime, the individual toxicities of each vaccine are cummulative and synergistic.

Benedetta

Yes, but can you believe that the Danish study got mentioned?

Can you believe that Bob Sears got to say the scientist that did the Danish study and found no link was funded by the CDC.

Can you believe that it got air time that the CDC was not suppose to fund and Thorsen was not supoose to accept the money at the same time he was working for the Danish univerisity. Yes, that was brought to light.

It was also mentioned that the Danish researcher had skipped town with 2 million dollars???


WoW!

“Vaccine exemptions interfere with commerce - is there anything in America that is not predicated on the almighty dollar? Do you think your child's health is really exempt from corporate greed?”

Sadly, in the United Corporations of America, everything is predicated on the almighty dollar. Our children’s health is not exempt from corporate greed. Our bodies now belong to the State. Or do they? America still is a free country, isn’t it?

Paul “for profit” Offit is not the only Dark Lord of the vaccine industry. Gregory A Poland MD is another moral entrepeneur who has made a deal with Lucifer. The “good” doctors’ interests are completely conflicted on the topic of vaccine mandates. Yet, even these COIs do not stop these particularly egregious pharma shills. They are utterly without shame! It’s truly disgusting, isn’t it!

Here are two links to articles by Dr Meryl Nass MD.

Thanks to Dr. Sears and Ms. Camerota. I agree with most of what Dr. Sears says - but not all. Ms. Caremota is very brave and clearly "gets" it.

Claudine Liss

Shut up, roll up your child's sleeve and SMILE too!

Thank you Fox News.

Let's see... what would happen if a major news network like FOX uncovered the biggest medical fraud in history, that has been ignored by all other networks for about 15 years ??? What news would you watch ??? They drug compaines might then have only one real news network to advertise on...

One side has Dr. Thorsen (missing with money), Dr.Offit (had vaccines taken off the market), the AAP, (they love those well baby visits)... and the glamor of Dr. Nancy.

The other side has "real science" / (not epidemeology), Simpsonwood, the CDC hiding things, and a million+ parents who have been right for decades about the organized posioning of their children.

Bob Moffitt

Which federal protection agency bears the greatest responsibility for failing to protect an entire generation of children?

The US Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) that failed to provide federal oversight that would have stopped Bernie "Ponzi Scheme" Madoff from stealing billions of dollar from individual investors .. or .. the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that CHOSE Dr. Paul "Show Me The Money" Thorsen .. to conduct the critical research to ascertain if vaccines were responsible for the autism epidemic?

While .. rightfully so .. Bernie rots in jail .. Thorsen remains at large .. and .. until he is captured and prosecuted .. the CDC remains an "un-indicted co-conspirator" in his crime.

Only AFTER Thorsen is punished will we KNOW to what extent the CDC was invovled in his crime.

casey

WOW! I have an issue with anyone saying the flu vaccine alone is safe... but hey this is a step in the right direction. Thanks Fox and Dr. Sears, keep up the good fight for us!

Sarah

Fox news reporter Alisyn Camerota is my new favorite person..thanks you Alisyn and
Dr. Sears!!

Jeff C.

Alisyn Camerota is my new hero. Despite the the vaccinator's charge that it is dangerous and irresponsible to even contemplate vaccine safety, she charges forward. We'll see how long she lasts. It was fantastic to see them hone in on the explosive growth of the schedule over the last twenty five years. I have found this to be the far most effective "foot in the door" when broaching vaccine safety with others. Most people have no idea and are genuinely taken aback when they realize the CDC schedule calls out 49 vaccine doses by age six.

Amen to the AAP being the pediatricians "union". This is exactly how I have always considered them, their priority is not in protecting children, but protecting pediatricians.

Julie Obradovic

It's a sad, sad day when people charged with our children's health would rather strategize with a vaccine patent holder about how to make us go away than invite us to actually hear our concerns, listen to the life-altering findings of Mark and Dan, and work with parents to protect our kids from both infectious and chronic disease.

I wrote about this last year right here on AoA...the AAP has a choice. Open their minds and acknowledge the limitations and bias of the current science regarding vaccine safety, welcome the independent study that is still needed, and support the wishes of parents...or dig their heels in and get defensive. Clearly, they have chosen the later.

Our kids deserve better. Thank you, Dr. Sears, for showing them that there are still some really great physicians with integrity.

Anne McElroy Dachel

Below is most of the interview. This is stunning to listen to.

I WOULD HOPE THAT EVERY PARENT WOULD EMAIL FOX NEWS TO GIVE THEM A RESPONSE TO THIS HONEST REPORTING. YOU CAN HAVE A TREMEDOUS IMPACT! WE NEED FOX NEWS TO CONTINUE THIS STORY!

EMAIL: friends@foxnews.com

This is what was said.....

Alisyn Camerota: "The Centers for Disease Control has always maintained that no research supports a link [between vaccines and autism]....

"One famous physician has written a book saying that the government's research is woefully inadequate....

"Has the government ever studied the amount of vaccines our kids get in one sitting? ...

Sears: "There's a CDC report that says that usually simultaneous vaccination have not been completely studied for safety. And that's what we're worried about.
"Babies get six or ...seven vaccines altogether and the CDC is admitting that they don't always research them that way. One prime example is the flu vaccine. ...The CDC has never researched the flu vaccine when you give it in conjunction with all the other infant shots. And that's what we're worried about.

"The CDC is just assuming they're safe. That's no real evidence that they're causing any harm, but I'd like to see more research on it. ...Parents want to be confident about vaccines."

Next Dr. Sears talked about how he never gives more than 2 vaccines at one time.

Sears: "Twenty, thirty years ago, we only gave two vaccines at a time with a total of eight injections throughout their childhood. Now we give babies six or seven at one time and over 50 injections spread throughout their childhood. ..."

Alisyn read a statement from the CDC that denied any safety risk and that claimed that the antigens didn't overload the immune system.

Sears: "....I think the CDC's argument about the thousands of germs we can tolerate everyday is scientifically invalid because they're talking about germs we inhale or germs that we swallow. Those germs are exposed to our immune system in a natural way. ...Our immune system processes those germs. But when you inject germs directly into the body, you bypass the immune system completely and the internal part of the blood stream immune system has to attack them and it's a very unnatural type of germ exposure.
