Top 5 fears about vaccines (and how to rest easier)

You've got to admit - getting your baby vaccinated can seem pretty scary. But Michael T. Brady, chairman of the American Academy of Pediatrics' Committee on Infectious Diseases and chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, eases our fears.

Fear #1 Dangerous side effects.

Fear #2 Autism

Fear #3: Having too many shots at once

Fear #4: "All the other stuff" in the shot

Fear #5 Vaccines being useless

So all our kids are just the result of diagnostic substitution. Another doctor makes up the science.

IF this were really true.........CNN and ABC would parade those kids in front of the cameras every night.

The total number of children diagnosed with autism has increased," Brady says. "But also the total number of children diagnosed with 'mental retardation' has gone down. We're not seeing autism more, but rather, we were probably incorrectly diagnosing autism as mental retardation in the past.

Like we keep asking....where are the 40, 60, and 80 year olds who display the same signs of autism we see in so many of our children? It has nothing to do with 'mental retardation.'   I posted several comments.

Every year, teams come together for a day of good basketball for an even better cause. First it was at Purchase College, then it made its way to Irvington High School the Autism Classic. . . .

"Autism awareness is becoming something that is very big now," said Maher, who is closing in on her 600th career win. "Most people are touched by it, or know somebody touched by it. Every penny (raised) goes to part of the autism community."

We have walks for autism. We demand AWARENESS. We have Sensitive Santas and autism friendly movies and sensory friendly story times at the public library. No one, of course, asks why we have to provide these things. How come this condition was rare 20 years ago and today it's common?

Please, don't ask. We're not interested. No one wants to know.

Los Angeles Times

Aaron Carroll today offers a graphic depiction of the toll of the anti-vaccination movement. (H/t: Kevin Drum.) It comes from a Council on Foreign Relations interactive map of "vaccine-preventable outbreaks" worldwide 2008-2014.

A couple of manifestations stand out. One is the prevalence of measles in Europe -- especially Britain -- and the US. Measles is endemic in the underdeveloped world because of the unavailability of the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine.

But in the developed world it's an artifact of the anti-vaccination movement, which has associated the vaccine with autism. That connection, promoted by the discredited British physician Andrew Wakefield and the starlet Jenny McCarthy, has been thoroughly debunked. But its effects live on, as the map shows . . .

The lesson of all this is that vaccination is not an individual choice to be made by a parent for his or her own offspring. It's a public health issue, because the diseases contracted by unvaccinated children are a threat to the community. That's what public health is all about, and an overly tolerant approach to non-medical exemptions -- and publicity given to anti-vaccination charlatans like Wakefield and McCarthy by heedless promoters like, sadly, Katie Couric, affect us all.

I posted the comment below.  I'm not seeing it on the LA Times site.

Notice this comment.

"In short, Jenny McCarthy likes killing other people's babies."

Why would the LA Times allow this?  Because they don't want our side talked about at all.  Autism is a curiosity.  It's a mystery.  No one really cares.

 Other comments:

"Seriously, if we need to force people to vaccinate their children then they need to have their children taken away from them because they are creating a danger to others."

"No exceptions unless they can prove their child is allergic to something in the vaccine."

"Anti-vaxxers selfishly assume they're making decisions for just their own children, but they fail to realize that their decisions affect millions more.

My comment:

Please, when the LA Times promotes this one-sided, one-size-fits-all promotion of vaccines, it needs to be noted that they failed to tell us...

VACCINES, like any medical product, carriy risks.

VACCINES.............have no liability. If a child is injured by a vaccine, doctors and vaccine makers have no liability.

They have been protected by federal law. Instead, parents have to appeal to a federal compensation program where they're up against government lawyers defending a government program using government money. Few parents ever get their day in court.

I agree as well. Usually "debunked" means a counter position was bought and loudly extolled. The word "debunked" is used to imply finality in the readers mind. I'll never be able to see that word again without suspecting fraud!

John Stone


Yes I agree, "debunked" is a crooked word, and a prejudicial term. Lazy, lynch-mob journalism.


Sarah L'Heureux

You know what word makes me see red, flames and smoke coming out of my nose and mouth and death rays beaming from my eyes? It makes me blood boil, my hair stand up and my teeth gnash unto the breaking point. One simple little word: "debunk."
I think most readers will get what I mean.


Michael T. Brady, chairman of the American Academy of Pediatrics' Committee on Infectious Diseases and chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio,

So where did he lay his hands on the stat that mental retardation has gone down?

DId he get ahold of anything about the numbers of those with mental illness in this country?

What is the stats on the numbers of those with mental retardation by the way?


Barbara vaccinated her son and took him home. Fixed her dinner and walked into his room to find him sitting in his rocking chair have some kind of mild seizure activity and would not respond to her. He then went to sleep.

She called her Mother who was a nusre and her mother told her to keep him awake and get him to the hospital.

She could only briefly wake him up, but could not keep him awake. He would not awake untill the next day.

She was joined by other parents - that at the time the CDC was claiming were only 1 out of 11,000. THe numbers were closer to 1 out of 300 and they got a Congressional Hearing on this.

Suddenly Princ Charmings all dressed in real nice suits were all over her; opening doors for her, pulling out the chair for her, leaning over listening to her every word with interest (this was shown on national TV) . These were suppose to be NIH workers -- you know a government health agency that has as it pillar - compassion.

They were doing the same to Congress.

Congress wrote the bill and past it -- not Barbara.
President Reagan signed the bill before he succumb to his vaccine injuirise - not Barabar.

Her fault in all of this was not understanding the real greed, stupidity, evil going on in the NIH, CDC. But really that is a hard one to phatom.

Barbara put together the National Vaccine Information Centeer and then disappeared for a while. Because her other son that did react to a vaccine developed a brain tumor.

No doubt in my mind and probalby we will find out some future date -- all related to the DPS shot damaging his hypothalamus and messing up an immune system that allowed the tumor to grow.

And as for the Prince Charming sucubbuses - well who knew that under those suit coats were shirts with vaccine manufacturing logos on them.


I lost my mind this morning; went blind for sure writing the below blog.
It was suppose to go to another sight about the vaccine court. Hmmh said something about it was a parent that was responsible for the vaccine court.


It was not little Barbara that had the power of the Congressmen to pass it.
It was not Barabara signature on the bill; it was President Reaga's -- bless his heart - his last days are probably linked to the vaccines he had.

I was around at this time.
I watched it all on the television.
At the time I did not know I had a child that vaccines had damaged - she had Kawasakis. Nor did I know the extent of her hidden health problems until she went through puberty and into adulthood to understand..

In the fullness of time ---all things will be revealed - Hmmmmh.

Nor, did I know at that time; that in the immediate future, I was going to have a child that was going to react just like hers to his DPT shot..

The story is that Barbara took her youngest child in to be vaccinated with all the faith that we all had in vaccines. She brought him home, and later she walks into his room to find him unresponsive, having some kind of mild seizure as he was sitting in his little rocking chair -- and then fell asleep.

She calls her mother who was a nurse, and her mother told her to wake him up. She could not get him awake fully, and he did not awake until the next day.

And so she; on her own - a young mother took on the vaccine manufactures, Congress, the NIH and (*&^*) CDC.

She was joined by other mothers of injured children, and it turned out to be a lot of them; that reacted to the DPT shot. They were finally able to get some Congressional hearings on this. It was looking to these mothers that the claimed rare event of 1 out of 11,000-- yeah that was the claim,-- seemed to looking more like 1 out of 250. VAERS was created at this time too because Barbara suspected that they were messing with the numbers, or at least did not know what to look for -- but maybe Mothers would and point them the way.

The CDC, NIH, Vaccine Manufactures sent in these really handsome men all dressed in really pretty suits. Prince Charmings they were. They opened doors for her, pulled out chairs for her as she sat down, bowed as they gestured for her to sit down, and pulled out the chair for her when she wanted to stand up. They smiled at her, and they leaned in to hear every thing she said to them with a keen interest. That was on the television - so I had to wonder what the Prince Charmings were saying and promising behind the closed doors to her and CONGRESS?.These Prince Charmings were talking all sweet to the Congressman too.

The Prince Charmings were telling them all that if they could get the vaccine court all fixed up; then other mothers, and other poor injured children would have an easier time to get compensation. There would be an easier time for victims to get justice. After all it was only 1 child out of 11,000. The numbers had been messed with even then. The numbers were probably closer to 1 out of 250.

Not only that, but now that 2 plus decades have passed to maybe almost three decades -- the first wave of kids that received five DPT shots are now all grown up and a high percentage have mental illnesses, and if you don't think drug abuse is not based in mental illness - you need to do some research. So began the War On Drugs. Even now few of these drug addicts understand they have mild bipolar.
I notice that Lutuda is now being advertised on television for bipolar depression. You see the other antidepressants send our little bipolars into orbit when they go into their manias. With out insurance local pharmacy ask 700 dollars for 30 pills of Lutuda;If you send your prescription up to Canada for Lutda they ask 220 dollars.

Which reminds me - of when the seizure medicine came out Lamictal -- it was also a mood stabilizer for bipolar. They wanted 2,000 dollars for a month supply.

The big drug companies have got it made.

Anyway Barbara not seeing the future or really understanding how really evil and greedy humans could be bought it; but then so did the Congressmen. Besides was it really up to her??? The Congressmen were the ones with the real power, and it was a government agency that was going to do the compensating,----- and not just any government agency - it was the NIH -a-- medical- government agency -- it's very foundation it was built on was "compassion"! Besides who knew under those nice dress coats of Prince Chamers they also wore shirts with vaccine manufacturers logos.

Barbara set up the National Vaccine Information Center after that - one of the things she did was put up a list of lawyers that would take vaccine injury cases. They were rare and few between. Her agency was around, but then Barbara disappeared for a while. I thought it was because she thought she had solved the problem as far as she was concerned, but it was not the case. Her other son had developed a brain tumor.

I imagine he too had not got by with his own childhood shots. Three years from first sign of injury is not working out for anyone it seems.

The NIH/vaccine manufacturers (now all the same) pack of Prince charmers turned out to be succubuses and sucked every bit of compassion out of the vaccine court. They Locked up all the doors of the vaccine court by endless paper work and paying out lots of money, not to injured children, but to men with lots of Phds, MA, BS, Mds initials behind their names to witness against - little injured kids. They took steps to make sure there would be no lawyers interested in taking these cases, and any lawyers interested were so specialized, far away, and rare-- well how many cases could be brought before the Vaccine Compensation Court. . And of course - three years from first sign of injury was a really big deceitful, and helpful rule for the NIH.

2 plus decades later closer to 3 decades- I see that 1 out of 250 may be affected with seizures and autism like stuff, but there was a large unseen and unknown group whose hypothalamus was slightly damaged too- these injuries took a while to show up. Things like irritability; depression, bipolar, mild mental illnesses that lead to drug abuse, immune problems not unlike Barbara's other child that went on to develop a brain tumor, diabetes, obesity, and on and on have developed.

So what did these Prince Charmings know then about this mess?

Hummmh?? Well, considering the difficulty that Brian Hooker and Geier and Geier had at getting a look at any of the CDC's epidemiological studies - they probably knew a whole big bunch.

And in spite of that, in spite of getting away with this massive crime - did they give a sigh of relief, and off vaccine boosters, or do research to find out what was happening? Oh, this is when you know that humans are more that just flawed creatures but thee is evil too.

After this law was passed; these Prince Charmer Succubuses no longer had to worry about vaccines harming anyone and the vaccine schedule increased to not only new vaccines, but added on booster after booster of the old vaccines. .

Barbara and the other Mothers did not catch that three year time limit, but they fought tooth and nail not to allow any genetic ; exclusion reason (because they though it was connected at the time) Meanwhile; the numbers of immediate reactons and injuries are now 1 out of 50 if not more.


See, the way I remember it, it was a parent of a child with an alleged vaccine injury that got the vaccine court established. I think it was....Barbara, something? Fisher?

That's it; found it:

Not buying it.

In real conversations with people on holiday this weekend it seems that parents are not buying that vaccines are safe. A coach who had a brother with autism fully expressed loathing for "big pharma" ( their words, not mine). A teacher with all boys discussed her approach to vaccinate very conservatively after consulting her Principal friend who had a child with autism. The Principal friend advised her to defer shots as much as possible, never administer when sick and give one at a time. In reality this seems to be what is happening. Another person I heard about who is head of an autism agency, when asked about what they think of vaccines, claimed she will not vaccinate any children she has in future. So the parents are talking and doing what they think is best.

Autism is the #2 fear?! What planet is this guy living on?

Journal News "Top 5 fears about vaccines (and how to rest easier)

The "expert" quoted in this ridiculous column is identified as Michael T. Brady, chairman of the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Infectious Diseases and chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.

In my humble opinion .. there were only two sentences in this lenghty article that were true .. one by the writer .. "you have to admit getting your baby vaccinated can seem pretty scary" .. and .. Brady's comment .. "I don't think there will ever be a study that associates vaccination with autism".

Baring those two comments .. this column was one of the worst written columns I have seen in the Journal News .. as all "5 fears" were addressed with arguments that lack any and all credibility. NONE.

Consider just one:

"#2 .. The rate of autism went up around the same time more kids started getting vaccinated .. there must be a connection right?

Duh .. only a complete idiot would disingeniously claim the rate of autism went up because MORE KIDS started getting vaccinated.

Common sense dictates the number of kids being vaccinated has remained pretty much the same for decades prior to the explosion of autism. What did go up is the number of vaccinations those kids were suddenly being recommended to receive.



Not buying it.

Los Angeles Times
The comments section clearly shows that most people aren't buying into the hype.


Tri City Herald

The "Top 5 fears about Vaccines" repeats nearly every worthless argument ever provided by pharma.

Thank goodness the better newspapers, such as the Wall Street Journal, are now owned by Rupert Murdoch... ??


Attack is the best form of defense. I think we should start attacking them hard - these genocidal, corrupt, fanatic vaccine pushers from CDC and medical establishment. We should prepare a class action suit against the criminals, who crippled or killed millions of innocent children with toxic vaccines. Vaccine preventable diseases are NOTHING comparing to life long disabilities such as autism and other terrible vaccine induced diseases. Besides, the statistics show that vaccinated people more often get "vaccine preventable" diseases, because vaccines spread various infections.

The corrupt American law prevents us from suing the master criminals from pharma mafias, but we can go personally after their equally criminal agents from CDC/HHS and local governments, who implement their genocidal plans.
