Nobody wants their child to suffer from disease or illness, but are vaccines the answer? Most literature about vaccination promotes the belief that the ‘benefits’ of vaccines outweigh any potential ‘risks’. This website contains information that questions both the effectiveness and safety of vaccines. Investigate before you vaccinate. Read the information that promotes vaccination and that which questions it.
Then you can decide for yourself.
We are encouraged to prevent diseases in our children by giving them vaccines. Diseases are described in fearful terms; a vaccine the only solution offered to protect against and eliminate these threats. We are also told that unvaccinated children are not protected, and that we must have high vaccination rates or these diseases will return and, in the case of new threats, become epidemic.
Despite this information, some parents choose not to vaccinate their children. They believe their children benefit by not having vaccines.
An increasing number of vaccines are recommended by the National Immunisation Schedule (NIS) which begins at six weeks with the Infanrix Hexa and Synflorix vaccines (against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, hepatitis B, haemophilus influenza type B, and pneumococcal). Parents question the impact this has on the developing immune systems of their babies and children. They are concerned about adverse reactions to vaccines and their short and long term effects on health.
How effective was the vaccine when children contract the disease they are supposed to have been protected against? Teenagers are targeted for vaccines with at least one recommended in high school and more in the pipe-line. The adult vaccine market has expanded and more vaccines have been introduced for the elderly.
The goal to maintain a culture of being vaccinated in teenagers and to target adults as the next vaccine market is being realised.
Vaccination is a ‘whole of life’ schedule. You will be asked to consent to whooping cough and tetanus vaccine at 45, and again at 65, with influenza vaccination annually thereafter. More vaccinations are being added to the schedule every few years.
As more vaccines are administered the rate of chronic illness in children, especially immune system and neurological (nervous system) dysfunction, has increased dramatically. The life expectancy of future generations has shortened. Chronic illness has overtaken infectious disease as the biggest public health burden.2
With such an intensive vaccination schedule to prevent disease and ensure health you may well ask:
What benefits have vaccines given? What is the cost to health?
This website questions vaccination and contains information that is NOT routinely provided by immunisation services. The information has been sourced from medical journals, government publications, vaccine manufacturers’ information, books and articles by a variety of researchers.
