30 Billboards Outside the Pro Vaccine Injury Community

Vaccines Can Kill
The New York Times called a national billboard campaign that warns of vaccine dangers "anti-vaccine." They claim to want to protect children - and so they bully and cajole and write article after article denying vaccine injury while pushing any and all vaccines available from Hep A to Zostrix. Of course. As ever. Anyone who mentions that vaccines have side effects is called anti-vaccine. It's a pejorative plain and simple used to write off any and all information.  Take a look at the two articles below - what's missing from the article on the billboard they don't like?  Ah yes, the actual billboard. Lord, I wish Dan Olmsted were here today with us to write this story. Eleven years ago, The Times wrote an article about billboards that warned drivers not to drink with a cutesy Broadway analogy.  Drivers will get a "starring role" in their mug shot! The campaign is called the "brainchild"... of  the county attorney.

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Anti-vaccine billboards claiming that routine childhood shots are deadly have popped up in Vax injury billboards NYTseveral West Virginia cities.

They warn that the son of former Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter Nick Catone died from a vaccine, though the infant's death was officially ruled to be sudden infant death syndrome.

A physician director for the Cabell-Huntington Health Department, Dr. Michael Kilkenny, says the case is tragic but the medical community's consensus that vaccines are safe and effective remains unchanged. The Herald-Dispatch reported Sunday that the messages have appeared this month in Parkersburg, Dunbar and Huntington as part of a national campaign by the nonprofit Learn The Risk group. More than 30 similar billboards have cropped up in Pennsylvania, New York and other states.  See the article here.

Here's the drunk driving billboard story clip from 2007:

NYT drivingThe Web site and billboards, which began last month, are the brainchildren of Andrew P. Thomas, the county attorney here who has served as the prosecutorial counterpart to the county’s hard-edged sheriff, Joe Arpaio, who has been known to force inmates into pink underwear.

The purposes of the billboards and the Web site, Mr. Thomas has said, are to inform the public about drunken-driving laws, and to serve as a deterrent.  Read more here.

In my town, if your child is caught drinking at your home, your name can go on a large banner that sits next to our town hall. Scaring people works. It's why the pro-vaccine injury community uses, "babies will die!" and folks run to get the ineffective flu shot in droves at a grocery store. Fear is always a sales or motivation tactic. It sells life insurance. Deodorant. Fear also convinces us NOT to do something. Like drunk driving. Like vaccinating. And there's the problem for the pro-vaxxers. It works. When people wake up and hear stories from people they trust, including their own doctors, they stop vaccinating. It's their choice. This is still the USA. Despite the horrific political climate.

Billboards are old school media. They work. To the Catone family - we're sorry. We understand. We know. We need 3000 billboards. A mother and a father deserve answers. Our injured kids have the "starring" role.  KIM




To the parent of an immunocompromised child who thinks my child is a threat,

I am so sorry that your child has cancer. I cannot imagine how hard that must be for you. I am sure you are trying to do what you think is best for your child, even if that means requesting that I do something that’s not best for mine. There are no hard feelings here but I have to be honest with you…I too, have a number of emotions surging through my body right now.

Towards my children, I am feeling extra protective. Towards my rights, I am like a mean mama bear who got poked during the middle of a nap. Towards the creators of the hysteria that all of a sudden, for the first time in history, deemed one child more important and makes my child a perceived threat to everyone else’s, I am angry. Towards the parent of an immunocompromised child I am sympathetic, yet frustrated by the fact that you do not respect my choices, that you think my unvaccinated child is the only one who threatens yours, and that you would insinuate that my child should be sacrificed on the altar for your child.By now, we’ve all been indoctrinated by the measles propaganda surrounding Disneyland. We’ve been mistakenly told that the unvaccinated are to blame, that it’s only occurring in unvaccinated individuals, and that measles disappeared 15 years ago and all of a sudden made a comeback.

In order to justify the removal of our parental rights, we’re told that the unvaccinated put infants and the immunocompromised at risk and we’re shown pictures of children suffering from cancer and other illnesses to drive this point home. We are not however, shown pictures of vaccine-injured children who have died, suffer from cancer, or have debilitating conditions caused by vaccines. No, that would be too objective.

For the sake of this letter, I’m not going to correct the inaccurate assumption that the only reason parents don’t vaccinate is because of vaccine ingredients like thimerosal, nor will I address the highly suspect studies funded by pharmaceutical companies (or entities that have incestuous relationships with pharmaceutical companies) that deem their own vaccines safe, and I dare not sway opinion with an emotional story of my son, who was vaccinated with MMR, almost died, and was subjected to a 240% increased risk of developing autism. No, I won’t show the photo of his sick, emaciated body lying in my arms after I flew across the world to be with him.

So let’s talk about measles for just a minute. It was once widespread in the U.S. I do not argue this fact. I argue that measles had significantly declined prior to the vaccine and has been and will always be a common childhood illness that when contracted at the appropriate age, yields lifetime immunity, protection against more serious diseases (like cancer) as an adult, and allows a mother to pass on the protection needed to keep her baby safe for his/her first year of life or longer.Measles is typically more severe in adults but prior to the vaccine, 90% of people had it by the time they were 15 years-old and the majority of children had it during their early school years. Now, babies and adults are the at-risk populations and lack immunity because vaccines have manipulated it. Yes, every baby and adult (vaccinated or not) can ultimately thank the vaccination program for their measles. Please forward your “thank you” cards to Merck, not me.

Now, it is true, the CDC says that infected people can spread measles four days before a rash appears, but a rash isn’t the first sign of measles. According to the CDC, a person with measles will first get a fever, which “increases in stepwise fashion, often peaking as high as 103°–105°F. This is followed by the onset of cough, coryza (runny nose), or conjunctivitis.”

So is the problem with the child’s vaccination status or is it the fact that a parent had a child with a fever and/or cough and toted her kid to Disney land anyway? I mean…they did pay for a trip to see Elsa and all. This is assuming that an unvaccinated child is actually responsible for the measles outbreak at Disney and not foreign tourists.

Like all infectious diseases, measles is contagious (though it can only survive on surfaces or in air for 2 hours or less), which is why the recently vaccinated should avoid contact with immunocompromised people for six weeks, why parents should be trained to recognize the first signs of an illness, and why you should never blow your nose on someone else’s shirt or cough in someone else’s face.

Measles itself is unpleasant but there are rarely complications unless you consider diarrhea and ear infections (both side effects of the vaccine) “complications.” Sure, your child could get pneumonia, brain encephalitis, or die but these side effects are extremely rare in a developed country and are also side-effects of the vaccine. We haven’t had a confirmed death from measles in over 10 years.

And let’s not forget, complications occur mostly in children under the age of 5 and adults over the age of 20, two groups that are now at risk thanks to…you got it…the vaccine.

We’re told brain encephalitis and death from the MMR vaccine are “rare” but the government doesn’t deem it important enough to properly monitor what happens to our children after they’re vaccinated and there are thousands of children who prove otherwise. What we do know is that death is a possible adverse reaction, was reported in pre-licensure studies, and 140 children have died from the MMR vaccine since 2000 per the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System and that is estimated to be only 1-10% of the actual number. In addition to death and brain encephalitis, other adverse reactions to this vaccine include (but are not limited to):

Panniculitis, atypical measles, fever, syncope, headache, dizziness, irritability, vasculitis, pancreatitis, diarrhea, vomiting, parotitis, nausea, diabetes, thrombocytopenia, purpura, regional lymphadenopathy, leukocytosis, anaphylaxis, arthritis, arthralgia, myalgia, encephalitis, encephalopathy, measles inclusion body encephalitis, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, seizures, convulsions, polyneuritis, polyneuropathy, ocular palsies, paresthesia, aseptic meningitis, pneumonia, pneumonitis, sore throat, cough, rhinitis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, erythema multiforme, urticaria, measles-like rash [also known as measles], pruritus, nerve deafness, otitis media, retinitis, optic neuritis (i.e. blindness), papillitis, retrobulbar neuritis, conjunctivitis, epididymitis, orchitis, and deathWhoa, calm down self.

I assume you love your child as much as I and you are making the best decisions you can for her but please realize you cannot expect my child to live in a bubble. An unvaccinated child who is actually carrying a disease could be a potential risk to your child, this is true but so is…

A child who was recently vaccinated with varicella, MMR, rotavirus, and influenza, (all live vaccines that can shed and infect yours),
A child who was vaccinated but didn’t develop immunity,
A vaccinated child who develops the disease and spreads it to others,
An adult recently vaccinated with shingles,
Every single adult (save a few exceptions) whose temporary (if any), artificial immunity they got from their childhood vaccines has long worn off,
An individual who, vaccinated or not, has any type of illness whatsoever.
Oh, you didn’t know this? If you’re a doctor, you should. It’s all right, this information is in the package inserts and the peer-reviewed data. Yet, you claim I should vaccinate my children because the MMR vaccine doesn’t work for everyone, your wife didn’t pass on the protective immunity to your baby exposure to wild measles would have given her, and you have an immunocompromised child who is at risk by both vaccinated and unvaccinated alike.

Sounds like a problem with the vaccine to me and lack of knowledge parents have regarding proper disease management. Maybe we should emphasize more education and less vaccinations.

But let me tell you why I have a problem with the argument that I have to sacrifice the health of my child for yours:

First, the MMR vaccine has not been proven safe or effective so to ask me to vaccinate my child with something that hasn’t even been properly subjected to pre-licensure, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies using an inert placebo, which is the standard for evidenced based medicine is ludicrous. That’s like asking me to put on a Santa suit and jump off the roof of a house or asking me to give my child a chemotherapy drug that was tested against one of its own ingredients to determine safety.

Second, vaccinations place my children into the “at-risk” categories where measles is much more severe. I’m thinking about my babies’ babies here. Some argue that if we were vaccinated we could protect all of the old people and babies from measles. I say, why pour more of what started the fire on it? I’m personally a fan of herd immunity myself. You do know it doesn’t apply to vaccines right?

Third, it’s misleading to say that the MMR vaccine results in immunity to most who receive it without noting that the immunity given (if any) is temporary (i.e. lasting for a limited period of time). It’s like that really good date you never wanted to end or the pains of childbirth. That’s probably why vaccine-induced herd immunity is a major fail.

Fourth, there are many children who are now immunocompromised because of vaccines. Anyone who thinks otherwise is living under a rock.

Fifth, there are other ways to prevent disease that doesn’t put either of our children at risk. Even the World Health Organization recognizes that using vitamin A can reduce measles deaths by 50%.

Sixth, when our kids are sick and must go to the doctor or be admitted to a hospital, there is a waiting room full of sick people and an infinite number of viruses circulating that could make our children sick. In fact, 1 in 25 people admitted to a hospital will acquire a health-care associated infection. That’s adds up to 721,800 people each year. Although measles didn’t make the list, maybe if we didn’t make it out to be the monster that it isn’t, people wouldn’t feel the need to bring their child in when they have an infectious disease with symptoms that could easily be managed at home.

Seventh, if government and health officials really cared about the immunocompromised, they would advise the parents of recently vaccinated children to avoid public places (including schools, daycares, and Disney) where immunocompromised children could be present. They would also educate parents on recognizing the signs and symptoms of disease, show them how to manage non-emergency symptoms at home, would encourage other methods of disease prevention, and would emphasize quarantine – not for the perfectly healthy, unvaccinated children, but for any sick child.

I’m sorry your vacation came to an end but the unvaccinated parent did not cause your child’s immunocompromised condition and there is no causal connection between an unvaccinated child and your child’s exposure. A causal connection is what’s required, right?

When we take our child to a place like Disneyland, or any other public place for that matter (including a hospital), we assume the risk that we might come into contact with a sick person, someone who hasn’t washed their hands, a kid who has picked their nose, or rides that have not been properly sanitized between each use. It is not fair to require that my child get vaccinated for the benefit of yours or to force my child to live in a bubble so that yours doesn’t have to.

By the way, did you know that studies show that exposing a cancer patient to wild measles could cure them? (See the Lancet – Bluming 1971, Pasquinucci 1971, Zygier 1971, Taqi 1981 and here and here). CNN even covered the story of the Ugandan boy who went into remission after wild measles exposure but the video and article have since been taken down. No surprise there. We’re trying to make a vaccine for that. If I had a child with cancer, you better believe I’d be looking for a kid with measles. But that’s just me.

Although I sympathize with your situation, pray healing for your child, and wish your circumstances on no one, that does not give anyone the grounds to trump my parental rights. My obligation as a parent is to my children, not yours and I will always (always) put them first. Don’t take it personally. I’m just a little tired of my children being used as the scapegoats of emotional arguments and misguided assertions.

You would be too if you were told you should be jailed or sued for exercising your autonomy as a parent and your “anti-vaxxer” children should be subjected to segregation and marked like the jews. I’m scared to repeat history. Aren’t you?

As in the article Laura posted
"ng school. For the 2014–2015 school year, when the Disneyland measles outbreak occurred and SB277 was introduced and passed into law, the statewide kindergarten full-vaccination rate was only 90.4%,2 below the 94% needed for community immunity to measles. "

Community Immunity = shedding which not so long ago pharma were saying never happened.

“If you look at the history of oral polio in developing countries, they specifically used a live vaccine,” she said. (The live-virus polio vaccine is no longer used in the United States.) Vaccinated children shed virus and in areas with poor sanitation, that often means other children are exposed through open sewage and thus protected.

“That’s a good thing,” Wootton said. It serves as a sort of indirect inoculation, immunizing children who weren’t reached with vaccination campaigns.

@Annie - I agree that what Pan and the California legislature have done is reprehensible.

But I also blame people who HAVE the power to do something about vaccine mandates, who ignore the steadily increasing numbers of children with autism, who ignore the dangers of vaccine, and yet who choose to do nothing. I think that issue deserves some attention too.


No Aimee Doyle it is not! But certainly you agree there’s a ground zero of it all!


Laura Hayes is the Sophie Scholl of the modern age! I donated 5bucks to Eric Frame. Wish it could have been more! We have to vote Pan out! Thank you SO VERY MUCH Laura Hayes for all you do!

Aimee Doyle

Republicans control both house and senate in 32 state legislatures. Republicans are governors in 33 states.

Pan is responsible for what happened in California, but certainly the GOP could do better with vaccine matters in the states they control. Republican controlled states still have vaccine mandates, with difficult to obtain medical and religious exemptions.

So there's plenty of awareness to raise throughout the country. It's not just a California issue.


Please take the time to check out a website called Neuorimmune (Dysfunction) on the Facebook page of Dr. Michael Goldberg who is a pediatrician in California. He has been saying for over 20 years that our children do not have autism, but a disease/illness that has affected their immune system and neurological functioning. He call is brain encephalitis. He says the answer is a medication known as an immune modulator that would correct the immune and neurological function in our children and cure the illness/disease they are suffering from. I think it is long enough that we have had to wait for the medical establishment to listen to his message and CURE our children.

Laura Hayes

Annie, and All,

Please read this latest commentary by Senator Richard Pan and Dorit Reiss in an AAP publication titled:

"Vaccine Medical Exemptions Are a Delegated Public Health Authority"

Some key lines from this article include:

"Policymakers should recognize that granting MEs to legally required vaccines is not the practice of medicine but a delegation of state authority to licensed physicians to protect public health and individuals. Essentially, physicians are fulfilling an administrative role: certifying to the state that a patient meets professionally recognized criteria that justify granting an ME."


"Public health officers should have the authority to invalidate unwarranted MEs and revoke the delegation of authority to grant MEs from physicians who abuse it."

Additionally, some of you may have seen the recent article from The Times of San Diego reporting on Senator Pan's comments that he is considering introducing legislation to "change rules for medical exemptions" and that he "would love to see all kids get vaccines, even if they're homeschooled."

The commentary in the AAP publication suggests that he will be taking further steps to change the rules for MEs. This is another rights-and-freedom-stripping move on his part, and further interference into the doctor-patient relationship. I contacted my local representative to alert him of these developments, and to ask that he take action to get ahead of Senator Pan introducing any such legislation by contacting and joining forces with other legislators. If you live in CA, please contact your state representatives, also, to alert them to possible legislation to be introduced by Senator Pan, and the need to squash it before that happens.

Additionally, efforts are being made in Pan's district, and well beyond, to unseat him and elect Eric Frame. If you have time to volunteer to help Eric Frame, or wish to make a donation, please go to Eric's website. Here is the page regarding donating and volunteering:


The Herald dispatch article had this:

"While vaccines are recommended, he continued that nothing is 100 percent effective or without the chance of side effects, though most events are rare. Common side effects, if any, may come as pain, redness or swelling at the injection site, achiness and possibly a fever, Kilkenny said.

As for the billboards, Kilkenny saw it as free expression of opinion and encouraged families to do their own, scientifically founded research.

"I certainly don't blame (the family) for wanting better answers than what they have, but a situation like that will make somebody reach for an explanation that may not be proven," Kilkenny said.

Kilkenny should have been invited to the "One Conversation" to discuss 'scientifically founded research'.

On his facebook page in a post complaining about medical exemptions, Pan posted the comment, "Public health OFFICERS (not officials which is the common nomenclature) need the AUTHORITY to... blah, blah, blateyblart, blart, blart". OK the blahtey blart bit is mine.

In a day in age where fascism and authoritarianism are becoming an increasing threat, I find it incredibly disturbing that a pharma funded politician is calling for more authoritarian control. Great gratitude and kuddos to the people that put together the billboard campaign!!! One of the biggest pieces of propaganda concerning the link between vaccines and autism is that this is the unsubstantiated musings of ONE scientist whom had his license revoked. If such a campaign should continue would be nice to see quotes from scientists from around the world that share Dr. Wakefields' concerns regarding what is getting injected into our youth; permission from said scientists should be required of course. Again, EXTREME gratitude to those that put up the billboards! The world is waking up!

"The New York Times called a national billboard campaign that warns of vaccine dangers "anti-vaccine."

I will proudly accept the NY Times "anti-vaccine" label .. because .. I am proudly "anti-vaccine".

" The New York Times claims to want to protect children - and so they bully and cajole and write article after article denying vaccine injury while pushing any and all vaccines available from Hep A to Zostrix."

If the NYT were truly invested in "protecting children" .. they would be among the loudest voices joining the common-sense public demand for an "independent, scientific study of vaccinated v. unvaccinated populations to ascertain .. once and for all .. if BOTH population have suffered the inexplicable, dramatic increase in life-threatening, life-long chronic autoimmune disorders .. such as .. autism, allergies (peanuts now at epidemic levels comparable to autism's 1 in 36), asthma, juvenile type 1 diabetes, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, SIDS, ADD, ADHD, on and on .. which were far less common in all previous LESS VACCINATED GENERATIONS.

Memo to the NY Times … I would have far more respect for the "pro-vaccine" NY Times if THEY were demanding the same vaccinated v. unvaccinated study as the growing "anti-vaccine" movement have been demanding for DECADES.

The vaccine and public health bureaucracies .. and their staunch pro-vaccine allies in the main-stream media .. including the NY Times .. should eagerly embrace and welcome the opportunity to conduct that critical study .. TO PROVE VACCINES ARE AS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE AS THEY INSIST THEY ARE .. after all … they have the data, resources and expertise to conduct the study .. the only thing stopping them is FEAR .. abject FEAR .. that such a study will finally expose the disastrous "unintended consequences" of their highly lucrative .. overly aggressive .. childhood vaccine policies.

Until the NY Times demands this study I will proudly accept being called "anti-vaccine". If being "pro-vaccine" means being terrified of conducting the one study that would prove conclusive as to the safety of vaccines .. they can have it.


I suppose that no--or at least not many--"medical professionals" administer vaccinations to a child with the "intention" of harming him. Continuing with Laura's analogy, even drunk drivers don't drive drunk with the intention of harming anyone. It just happens.

You would think that medical professionals would be aware that vaccine injuries do, in fact, occur and victims have been compensated (some of the time).

General anesthesia may be given to special needs kids for forced vaccinations
Posted by Erin Elizabeth | Sep 30, 2018

Just this past June at the 2018 National Immunization Conference in Adelaide, Australia, Associate Professor Julie Leask of Sydney University made a disturbing announcement: some “medically-complex” children will require sedation or even general anesthesia in order to undergo catch-up vaccination. And as if that wasn’t shocking enough, she also announced that if parents don’t consent they will be denied family assistance payments.

Does anyone have any more information about this?

Hans Litten

Oh Please Please Please God let is happen ....Can the Pan !

Laura Hayes

Comparing those 2 billboards reminds me of an analogy I like to use:

When someone says to the parent of a child who has been injured or killed by vaccines that they are pro-vaccine, or worse, “fiercely” pro-vaccine, that is like saying to the parent of a child who has been injured or killed by a drunk driver that they are pro-drunk driving, or worse, “fiercely” pro-drunk driving.

Both vaccines and drunk driving cause grave harm and premature death. In either case, there is nothing to be ‘pro’, or “fiercely” pro, about.

Hans Litten

Facial recognition to complete the vaccination compliance lockdown ?
sb2777 - shush don't anyone tell Pan about this !

Hans Litten

Doodle its great know we are getting to you ! See everyone - its working !
Btw Doodle, what you know about vaccination can be written on a postage stamp !

Doodle acknowledged that she takes anti-vaccine rhetoric to heart.

"I personally take offense to anyone who implies that medical professionals, like myself, would ever administer anything to anyone, especially a child, that would intentionally harm them. I take even more offense to anyone that would imply that a college educated professional, like myself, is incapable of 'doing the research,'" Doodle wrote. "People always fire back with something like, 'well if you are vaccinated, why do you care that I’m not? If you are so sure your vaccines work, It’s not like you can catch it.'

You are 100 percent right. I will probably be just fine. It’s my newborn baby who is too young to be vaccinated that I’m worried about, it’s my friend who is going through chemo, it’s a neighbor that is immune compromised, it’s my cousin who is allergic and can’t receive the vaccine. Yes, we tell you to get vaccinated to protect yourself, but it’s so much bigger than that. Vaccinate. Because it’s not just about YOU."
