Popular Frequently Asked Questions About Vaccines
Q. Can mass vaccinations eliminate childhood disease?
A. All diseases declined by as much as 95% before the introduction of vaccines or antibiotics.
Improved personal and public hygiene can account for a considerable drop in deaths from disease.
Diseases will decline without intervention. TOP
Q. Would epidemics return if vaccination stopped?
A. It has never been shown with any vaccine that those vaccinated were completely protected against the disease during epidemics.
Both vaccinated and unvaccinated contract the disease.
Halting vaccination would probably yield little change. TOP
Q. Is the risk of complication from a childhood disease greater than the risk of vaccination?
A. When vaccinating, there is the chance of getting the disease PLUS the chance of vaccine damage.
It is an error to state with any certainty that the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks.
The very diseases for which a person is vaccinated occur regularly in the same vaccinated population (often 50 – 80% of cases are in vaccinated individuals). TOP
Q. Which vaccines are safest?
A. Some may seem to produce fewer side effects, but no vaccine is guaranteed safe or effective.
Doctors do not guarantee that there will be no side effects nor do they guarantee prevention of that disease.
Manufacturers of vaccines extensively list possible adverse reactions and never make any guarantees.
All vaccines have been linked to serious and/or deadly side effects. TOP
Q. Are vaccines good preventive medicine?
A. Vaccinated individuals can contract the same disease they were vaccinated against, and vaccines carry risks of their own. TOP
Q. Are unvaccinated children threatening the health of vaccinated children?
A. If a vaccinated child is assumed “protected” from that disease, then an unvaccinated child cannot possibly pose a threat to him. TOP
Q. If my child did “OK” after one shot, then why should I worry?
A. The human body is biologically programmed to rid itself of foreign impurities of all kinds, including vaccines.
A healthy body will always react, to some degree, to the introduction of a vaccine into its bloodstream.
“No reaction” does not mean that the child’s system is strong.
Some children who become damaged or who die after the second or subsequent shots did not noticeably react to the first shot. TOP
Additional Information:
Diseases for which no vaccine exists, rise and fall on their own, and people who are vaccinated still get diseases they were vaccinated against. Infectious diseases come and go; they are part of the biosphere. To think that we can simply eliminate them through some kind of technical engineering is incredibly reckless. An non-vaccinated person has one risk and that is of catching a disease. A vaccinated person has two risks: the chance of catching the disease plus vaccine damage.
Since half of all disease cases (of measles and pertussis for example) consist of vaccinated people, then:

  • for a vaccinated person who gets a disease, his benefit is 0% and his risk is unknown.
  • for a vaccinated person who does not get a disease or a reaction, his benefit is unknown and his risk is unknown.
  • for a vaccine-damaged or killed person, his benefit is 0% and his risk is 100%  TOP
The Declining Rate of Diseases:

Pertussis had been falling steeply for 70 years prior to the vaccine. The death rate from 1900 to 1935 in the United States was reduced by 79% before the vaccine was introduced. Mortality rates continued to decline after the vaccine at a rate not significantly greater than before.

From 1900 to 1930, years before the vaccine was introduced, deaths from diphtheria declined by 90%. From the Civil War to WWII, tetanus declined by 99.8% while other developing countries without the vaccine also saw a steady decline.

Measles death rate declined by more than 95% from 1915 to 1958 long before the vaccine was introduced.
From 1958 to 1966 (before the live vaccine) the number of measles cases reported each year dropped from 800,000 to 200,000.

Polio death rates declined 60% from 1923 to 1953, before the vaccine.  TOP
