If parents had to make a choice between vaccinating their child according to the current recommended vaccine schedule or choosing zero vaccines for their child, which choice would be safer? If they choose all the vaccines on time, they are risking vaccine injuries including sudden infant death, seizures, autism, learning disabilities, asthma, type one diabetes, severe food allergies, and many more. If they choose zero vaccines, they are risking the infectious diseases and other conditions that vaccines are claimed to prevent. Which is the greater risk? I believe that zero vaccines is a far less risky choice if those are the only choices.
There is a viable third choice if parents are willing to do some research and choose only those vaccines that they believe are best for their child. This is called selective vaccination. If parents choose this route they will have to search out a pediatrician who will respect their right as parents to do what they believe is best for their child. Do not be intimidated by any doctor. Keep searching until you find one that will cooperated with your decisions.
The book Vaccines 2.0 is a great starting point. This book describes each of the 16 recommended vaccines in detail and gives each a grade. You will discover that many of these vaccines provide virtually no benefit for your child but plenty of risk. Why are these useless but dangerous vaccines on the schedule? Sadly, the vaccine schedule is based on maximizing profits for vaccine companies and not on what is best for children. Another excellent resource is Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
When it comes time for your child to go to school, there will be a problem. They will not be permitted to attend a public school unless they have had all of the vaccines mandated by your state. This is a solvable problem in most states. At this time all states except Mississippi, West Virginia, and California have legal exemptions to vaccines. Parents need to find out the details of these exemptions in their state. In Florida, we were able to get a religious exemption for our children. This exemption is kept on file at the child’s school and we have had no problems.
Simply being selective regarding which vaccines your child gets and at what age they get them is only part of the foundation for maximizing your child’s health. Excellent nutrition is equally important. Minimizing junk food and providing the healthiest possible foods will go a long way toward ensuring good health.
We are repeatedly told that vaccines are safe and effective and that vaccine injuries are rare. Don’t believe it. In 1986 a law was passed eliminating the liability of vaccine companies for deaths and injuries their vaccines cause. At the same time Vaccine Court was established to hear petitions from injured parties and award damages. Since its beginning, Vaccine Court has paid out more than $3,000,000,000(three billion dollars) in damages despite denying most claims. Among the denied claims were 5,000 claims for autism. The “vaccines don’t cause autism” big lie is backed by numerous fraudulent scientific studies funded by the CDC or vaccine companies.
Most people are unable to go against the flood of pro-vaccine information coming from the CDC, mainstream media, the vaccine companies, and their pediatrician. For parents who do choose to go bravely into the night on this selective vaccination path, I wish you well.
